Just think the X-Series irons first appeared in 1998. The sixth iteration, X-22, starts off with a thinner top line and narrower sole than X-20. A bigger, wider cavity "notch" pushes more mass to the heel or toe. This creates a 10 percent higher moment of inertia (MOI) and greater head stability. An "undercut channel" behind the entire face pulls weight rearward, to increase overall forgiveness and promote repeatable flight. Lastly, the face varies in thickness to bolster ball speed on mis-hits.
