Callaway's X-22

Look out for a new series of irons from Callaway Golf in the New Year. The latest X-22 and X-22 Tour irons were launched at the Golf Europe trade show in Munich last week and are set to have golfers drooling.

Distinctive with a sculpted cavity back, the X-22, says Callaway, has been designed to enable golfers to take dead aim with confidence, thanks to its forgiving properties which allow off-centre hits to fly longer and straighter.

This has been achieved in part by enhancing precision notch-weighting to maintain a low centre of gravity to propel the ball airborne more efficiently.

The X-22 Tour irons, which have also been designed by roger cleveland will appeal to the aspiring golfer able to handle a refined head, narrow sole and a thin top line. ther X-22, currently used by Rocco Mediate and Phillip Price also feature a stylish satin finish.

Callaway says it has also refined its X-Forged irons for 2009. they have been re-shaped with progressive weighting to improve ball control and deliver a slightly higher ball flight.

In April Callaway will introduce the Diablo iron and Diablo hybrid to complement its sensational Diablo driver revealed last week.

Odyssey has had outstanding success in its putting range including its award-winning XG-7 and plans to be even more stylish with its putters in 2009 without losing its heritage, with the emphasis on alignment and accuracy.

Among the new ones in the premium-priced range are the the White hot XG Hawk (£99), White Hot XG Teron (£139),and the White Hot XG F7 (£229) and cross between the Sabetooth and a 2-ball. Callaway has also introduce a Crimson range of £99 putters - the 770 Sabretooth, the 550 Mallet and 660 Blade, also available in left-handed versions.
