Nothing about these irons can in any way be described as inferior. A complete golf set should possess the hot irons by Callaway X for making your high loft or moderate to short distance shots perfect.

Callaway X-Hot Irons Set - Specifications & Features
Deep Cutaway Design
Callaway X Hot Irons took their industry-leading undercut cavity and used it to create the longest driver on+ the market.
This deeper cavity helps achieve higher ball speeds than you would get from any other irons on the market.
One thing you will notice about these irons is their weight. They have heavy club heads, which provide the coveted high trajectory and low center of gravity.
Feel Management Technology
Callaway used this technology to fine-tune the acoustic properties of the Callaway X Hot Iron while providing a crisp, dynamic feel and better playability.
These irons are quite new and a little bit heavier than other products on the market so for many players, it may take a while to get used to using them.
But with the Feel Management Technology, getting used to the irons is a whole lot easier.
In fact, having tried the Callaway X Hot Irons for a very short time, quite a few golfers have trouble adjusting back to the golf clubs they were previously using.
Speed Frame Face Technology
Finally, Callaway decided to incorporate this speed frame face technology into its irons.
Callaway drivers are renowned for their efficiency in energy transfer from the clubhead to the ball which produces vastly superior distance and increases launch angle.
