The Callaway Fusion Wide Sole irons promise to help you improve your game without doing anything to your swing. Is it possible? Check out our review to find out.
Callaway's Fusion Wide Sole irons join a growing industry trend to create a wide-sole, large-face, generously offset iron for the average golfer. The original Fusions were heralded as some of the most forgiving irons ever made. The Fusion Wide Soles took that forgiving design even further. Do the Callaway Wide Sole irons live up to their ultra-forgiving promise? I compared these irons to the regular Fusions and the forged clubs I normally play and came to some interesting conclusions.
The Callaway says that the Fusion Wide Sole Irons "combine Fusion Technology. Callaway Golf has innovative weight distribution technology - with an advanced multi-material design to create an oversized game-improvement iron. The result is an iron that plays longer and offers unmatched performance and playability."
The Wide Sole's sole design "helps each iron in the set glide smoothly and easily through the turf to reduce clubhead digging or catching on missed shots." The Wide Sole irons share the unique TPU (thermoplastic urethane) insert that tunes face feel through decreased vibration. This material and design is meant to enhance a solid feel throughout the set. The Fusion Wide Sole Iron is a good looking iron. Technology is prominently and visible featured, and the gold accents featured on the standard Fusions are delightfully understated on the Wide Sole Fusions.
The Fusion Wide Sole irons are long from heel to toe which means the face has a lot of ball-striking real estate. The mid- and long-irons are definitely inspiring as each iron, from the pitching wedge up, looks like a little hybrid. If you've ever stood over a blade-like 3-iron and started to tense up, these might be the irons for you.
