Callaway golf clubs can be seen on every golf course, why these Callaway stars so famous and so easy to see? Phil Mickelson, Nicholas Thompson, James Nittes, Ernie Els, Mathew Goggin and Annika Sorenstam, all of them are the users of Callaway clubs. they all said the clubs helped them so much. If you are also a golf lover,i think that it's good chose to choose Callaway X-22 Irons
for golfer.plese blieve me it's worthing to owning .

Using the Progressive Wall Reduction System, Callaway Golf engineers lowered the center of gravity (CG) 6 percent more than in the X-18 Irons. Progressive Wall Reduction means the CG gets progressively lower throughout the set. The CG is lowest in the long irons, helping you get the ball airborne more easily.
With its traditional styling and Callaway Golf core technology the X-22 Irons provide the performance and forgiveness to play the game with enhanced confidence.
Look and Feel
I have always loved the look of Callaway irons. When the X-14 irons were released, I so wanted to get a set of them. The price, at the time was restrictive, and I settled for a set of used TaylorMade clubs. There is just something about the little notch in the back, and the color scheme that cries out…play with me.
While the X-22s do not fit into the ’super-game improvement’ category, they are considered game improvement irons, to be sure. That being said, they are not radically different than the older X-Tour irons. As you can see in the pictures above and below, the X-22s are slightly longer heel to toe, have a slightly wider sole, and a slightly thicker top line. Overall, they really just seem like a meatier X-Tour iron…looks wise at least.
Feel wise, you get what you’d expect from a cast, game improvement offering from Callaway. Do not expect the feel of a forged Mizuno iron here. They are quite muted, though more vocal than the Nike Sumo irons I tested earlier, or other ’super-game improvement’ irons. That being said, you can tell when you have hit a significant miss…thinned shots in the cold do still hurt! You just do not have that same kind of buttery soft feel on flushed shots or distinct feel on slight sweet spot misses.
Performance
It’s hard to argue with the performance of a Callaway iron. Their slogan, ‘A better game by design’ generally holds true. These irons are remarkably easy to hit straight. Thin, fat, little toward the toe…the heel…the ball wants to go where you were aiming. Thin shots still get a lot of distance. The sole of the club really resists digging, so hitting fat shots is a little more difficult. The only real problem with this excellent forgiveness…is that when you do hit one off line, say you come inside out, and don’t get the clubface square, your push/slice is still going to go that much further off line.
At address the X-22 looks quite beefy, as you can see above. Perhaps a little less chunky than the super game improvement irons, but significantly more beefy than a blade. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Align this clubface behind the ball, and you certainly will be very confident. How could you possibly think of hitting a poor shot with this big face behind the ball?
In the pictures below you can see the X-22s next to a range of other irons, Adams Idea Pro Forged, Callaway X-Tour and Nike Sumo irons. You can see they really aren’t that much larger than the Idea or X-Tour irons, and slightly smaller than the Nike Sumo. When it comes to the sole, yes, it’s a little wider, but next to the Nike Sumo, the X-22s look like blades.
