VERDICT There’s an old saying that there are few new ideas, only better execution. That could apply to the Steelhead XR. Callaway has taken the proven, reliable shape of its Steelhead X-14 iron of more than a decade ago and married it with the modern horsepower of the wraparound cupface found in its more recent irons. The result is a club with power where you need it. The centre of gravity is low and deep in the long and middle irons for better performance on mishits, and the zippy face provides a turbo-boost near the R&A limit on spring-like effect. COMMENTS (L) The feedback at impact is informative. (H) There’s a lot of technology straightening out your ball flight.
