Forged vs. cast irons and Callaway’s 2016 iron lineup as explained by Callaway’s Doc Hock!
It’s the age-old question when it comes to the dichotomous makeup of irons: What’s the difference between forged and cast clubs?
While, technically, this division occurs within the manufacturing process, the real intent of the question is to define how each feels and reacts to the golfer hitting them.
Generally, forged clubs appeal to better players because of the enhanced feel and feedback, and cast clubs appeal to less-skilled players because of the forgiveness and overall ease to hit. But there’s of course a lot more to it, so we recently caught up with Dr. Alan Hocknell, Head of R&D for Callaway Golf, who explains which may be ideal for your game and how Callaway’s Apex Pro, Apex, Big Bertha and XR OS irons fit within the spectrum.
Watch our two short videos with Dr. Hocknell below, and head into your local GolfTEC THIS WEEK to try Callaway Golf irons at our Hit It Fit It Callaway Golf events. Find your local event and RSVP HERE.
