Callaway Golf Men's X-20 Irons Lob Wedge

By Jim Hagerty

Callaway's X-20 were a part of Callaway's popular X-series of irons.  has an ongoing upgrade process in its popular X-Series irons. While they were typically sold as a set, the X-20 lob wedge (RH 60-degrees) was commonly sold individually. The X-20 lob wedges include the same specs as the rest of the X-20 irons. The line is made of stainless steel and includes Callaway's VFT (Variable Face Thickness) design and a variety of shaft options. Though no longer in production, the X-20 lob wedge is still available on the secondary market. 
 

Head Design

The X-20 lob wedge is a notch-weighted, modified cavity-back iron with a 360-degree undercut channel. The result is a modified heel-toe weighting feature, which distributes weight to the perimeter of the head, including the face. The low center of gravity and weighting system focuses on the hitting area, enlarging it for better feel and forgiveness.

Bore-Through Hosel

Patterned after the classic Callaway S2H2 Bore-Through design, the X-20 60-degree lob wedge has a short, slightly offset, bored-out hosel, which encases the entire shaft tip, extending it through to the back of the sole. The shaft is tip-plugged for better feel, reduced vibration and optimal shaft performance.

Shaft Options

The Callaway X-20 lob wedge is available with several shaft options, such as steel shaft Dynamic Gold and Royal Precision (Rifle), available in standard flexes (including a uniflex option). The line also includes several graphite options (standard flexes), including shafts from Fujikara and Callaway's private label.

Club Performance

While not part of Callaway's specialty wedges, the X-20 (Standard and Tour) is a solid club. Around the green, it has soft feel and puts nice spin on the ball. With a wide sole, the X-60 is also explosive out of the sand and deep rough, resulting in nice trajectories. Its head isn't as progressively aerodynamic as its X-Forged or X-Tour specialty counterparts, but the X-20 gets the job done just as well as some top-line, premium wedges.
