So many times I can find the questions to ask for the comparison between Callaway X-22 and TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons. So in this pieace I would like to share it.
TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons are more forgiving due to the inverted cone technology that Taylormade has patented. They are also stronger lofted by 2°. The Callaway x-22's are an older iron and are now at a discounted rate. They were replaced by the Callaway RAZR X irons. The X22 irons are weaker by about 3° in long irons that starts to shorten out to 2° in the 7 and 8 irons. Also depending on what length the shafts are the taylormades are likely longer by anywhere to .5-.25 inches on any given club. As far as playability they will play near the same style not a whole big difference between the two.
The TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons are a little clicky off the face due to the inverted cone. But they are very easy to strike and launch the ball with ease. The Callaway are also quite forgiving. But they have a uni-flex shaft which is not always a best option for most people. But I would say try them both on a launch monitor and look the side spin you are creating and the dispersion. That should be able to tell you what club is best for your game.
I personally am very pleased with the callaway x-22 irons for sale. If you go this route my advice would be that you see a fitter you trust, so that you can get the right shaft for you. I was not a fan of the Uniflex shaft when I demoed them, and I ruled out the X22 early on. However, I went to a fitter, and ended up with the X22's with PX 5.5's. This shaft made a huge difference for me over the Uniflex.
It depends on the condition of both (grips, grooves, scratches). In general they are pretty much the same club. The TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons are black and probably would wear a little faster. Also the burners lofts are probably a little stronger, but im not 100% on that one. Its probably a pretty even trade but i wouldnt just trade my clubs unless i didnt like them. If you like the callaways better then you should do it, but if you think they are the same, dont bother with the switch.
Your are also suggested: If you are not really inclined to practice, hybrids will be much more friendly than most iron sets. If budget is no issue, try the PRGR EGG series, I have never felt a set of cheap golf clubs that felt so balanced, but they are pricey. If you are inclined to practice, then hold off the purchase until your swing gets more consistent. If you just wanna buy something cos it christmas and you want to give yourself a treat (which is a very valid reason!!!) then pick the one that looks and feels the best to you.
