Anyone here had experience with the X20 before? And what do you think of it? Suitable for beginner?

Views and advice are much appreciated. Very Happy

Perfect for beginners!Smile Used them for a year before I moved on.
Its a game improvement club and really forgiving club to use on the course

Loved my X-20s. Sold them off but actually regretted doing so. Great for beginners!

i'm still using the x20s now after about 14 months of golf. still enjoying them but they do feel head heavy at times. otherwise, they're very forgiving and are great for beginners.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Reason i asked was coz i dont see as much comments or feedback on the X20 compared to other makes of irons. I only came across this set recently and was offered a good price for it. Hence doing some research on it.

Again thanks for the feedback guys Smile

I was using a X-14 for 4 yrs before changing to X-20 Jap Version (both graphite). It's been another 4 yrs & now changed to Yamaha Inpres Classic. Reluctant to sell so left the X-20 for my son who is taking up the game. Great set for high & mid handicappers since it's offset and forgiving.

just want to hv a sense from the forum...
do u prefer x20 vs x22 vs diablo edge?
I know the former is cheaper, but not by much... and since I am unlikely to use the 3,4i anyway, I can get the latter 5-pw at abt the same price as x20 3-pw
any comments in this regard?

Bro Supernova, that was the same thoughts i had. After reading and asking around i eventually narrowed in to X20s. There were a few factors that i considered on:
1) my skill level (my nick in golf can be like that brand 'topper' hahha! )
2) pocket reserves (i think the offer i had on the x20 was good)
3) tendency to move on to 'up-grade' (aka be poisoned, i wouldnt lose much if i was poisoned later on...) to better equipments
4) likelihood of giving up golf (choy choy choy-touch wood)...

In the end i chose X20. Without even trying the x22 and diablo edge. (its silly i know...)

But then again i didnt have the lobang of $diablo edge 5i to pw =+- $X20 3i to pw. (i was offered the 4i to sw though).............

If i was in your shoes i'd still be confused on which to get UNTIL i try them all Wink
I think you'll be able to make a better decision after you try it all.

ps. so far after trying em out this whole week, the X20 is making me look good. Ball fly high and far....even i am surprised. But some how i feel the ball gets too high for my liking.....Shocked

tks bear for sharing. unfortunately, for me, i am left handed, so no chance to try any of the clubs Sad
am probably getting online, so likely to be more ex than used sets from ppl in singapore.
only left handed used set i found to my liking in sg was x14, which is abit dated i think.
