    Mark, I am a long time x14 pro series player. As the x14 pros are a "legend" of the iron world – it would be great to see how my retro classics stack up against the steelhead xr. Any chance of an old vs new vid please? James

    I've seen these irons in person just the other day…the XR is an okay looking iron, but that Big Bertha is UGLY.

    I just don't get what range of players Callaway irons are for at the moment. Manufacturers like Ping and Titleist have got 4 irons going from game improvement to player's irons, but recently it seems like Callaway just bring out a heap of random super GI clubs and then the Apex range. Over the last 24 months they've had Big Bertha, XR, XR OS, Big Bertha OS, Steelhead and they all seem to be geared for the same person wanting the largest possible head, max distance, max forgiveness.

    Thanks, I have used the BB for a couple of years and was thinking of a new set but could not decided between the BB and the XR. Apparently there isn't much performance difference.

    My problem w/ these types of irons is incorporating wedges. I have a couple sm5's (which I love) and the change in look from the PW to my more bladed vokey's doesn't look/feel right. Does that make sense? As a result I play a combo w/ Ap1 at the 5-6 and Ap2 7-pw.

    As you state in most of your videos the new irons don't perform much better than their predecessors, or equivalent competition. Is it possible to compare some 'top end' irons/drivers to cheaper, smaller brand irons/drivers? I finally took the time on a launch monitor, I didn't think there would be much difference with my Dunlop set and these 'top end' irons. I was completely wrong, my distances and control with the irons was hugely superior. The driver gained considerable distance also, though accuracy was way off, which I put down to a completely different feel club. If I had known the differences sooner I would have invested much sooner.

    One thing about the Steel head is the offset is less than the XRs. As your swing gets better, the stronger offset will cause your misses to the left or a hook.
