Callaway Steelhead XR Iron Review

Signature Shape Meets Breakthrough Performance.

The Steelhead XR Irons are where a signature shape meets breakthrough performance with our industry-leading, next generation 360 Face Cup. They deliver the finest combination ever of speed, forgiveness, distance and control in a Callaway iron.

More Speed and Distance from Next-Generation 360 Face Cup Technology

Next-generation 360 Face Cup™ technology increases ball speed with greater efficiency on both center hits and mis-hits for more distance.

Higher Launch and Better Feel from Steel-Infused Polyurethane Layer

A bar of steel-infused soft urethane layer positioned behind the lower portion of the face serves two functions. Firstly, it absorbs unwanted vibration for great feel. Secondly, the integration of steel into the urethane adds weight, which lowers the head’s Center of Gravity for faster ball speed on low hits and higher launch angles.

More Forgiveness from Hollow Bore-Thru Hosel Design

Hollow Bore-Thru hosel design saves significant weight that’s repositioned in strategic places in the head to create more forgiveness and easier launch.

More Control and Distance from Progressive Center of Gravity Positioning

The CG is positioned strategically in each iron to promote easy launch and long carry in the long-irons, easy launch and keen control in the middle-irons, and lower and high-spinning shots in the short-irons.
