The Callaway AI Smoke HL Iron: A Game-Changing Golf Club

Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Callaway AI Smoke HL iron, part of the new Callaway Ai smoke range. This innovative iron has the potential to become one of the most popular choices for golfers in 2024.

With its advanced AI technology and focus on turf interaction, the AI Smoke HL offers forgiveness, higher launch, and improved distance control.

In this blog, we’ll explore its features, performance, and customisation options, as well as provide insights from a special guest who tested the iron.

The Technology Behind the AI Smoke HL Iron

Callaway has incorporated their AI technology, derived from computer science and cutting-edge research, into the face of the AI Smoke HL iron. This technology enhances off-centre strikes and maximises power, giving golfers the confidence to hit the ball higher and achieve better land angles. The club’s turf interaction design prevents the sole from getting buried in the turf, allowing for a smooth and clean strike.

An Appealing Design

The AI Smoke HL iron features a sleek and visually appealing design. From behind, the iron showcases meticulous detailing that adds to its overall aesthetic appeal. The wide sole and thick top line inspire confidence, especially for players who require additional forgiveness. While the colour scheme may not suit everyone’s preference, the overall look of the club is sure to impress.

Targeted Player Profile

The AI Smoke HL iron is designed for players with an average to slower swing speed, offering the necessary assistance to launch the ball higher. This iron provides the optimal solution for individuals who struggle with low ball flight and need help gaining more distance and control. It’s important to note that this iron may not be suitable for players who already have a naturally high ball flight or struggle with an open club face at impact.


To evaluate the performance of the AI Smoke HL iron, our tester took several swings using TrackMan, a professional tracking and analysis system. Despite a few less-than-perfect strikes, the iron consistently delivered impressive results. The AI technology behind the face compensated for off-center hits, allowing for good distance and a high launch angle. The forgiveness of the club was evident, as even poor strikes managed to achieve satisfactory results.

Special Guest Testing

Our special guest, Chris, joined us to provide feedback on the AI Smoke HL iron. As a player with a slightly slower swing speed, Chris offered a different perspective. He typically uses different irons, such as the Cobra MB CB irons, which are more tailored to his preferences and skill level.

Chris emphasised that, as an occasional golfer, he doesn’t require the level of forgiveness provided by the AI Smoke HL iron. However, he acknowledged that the iron’s ability to improve launch and provide additional assistance could benefit players who struggle with low ball flight. 

Customisation Options

Callaway offers a wide range of customisation options for the AI Smoke HL iron. Working closely with their marketing and sales teams, Callaway provides additional shaft options to retailers like ourselves to better fit golfers’ needs. The available graphite options make it easier for players to find the perfect combination of club and shaft that suits their swing. Whether blended with the standard AI Smoke iron or chosen as a full set, the customisation options cater to diverse player profiles.

Price Point

One of the advantages of the AI Smoke HL iron is its competitive price point. Callaway has marketed this iron with a more reasonable price compared to their previous offerings. While not considered cheap, the price is in line with other competitors in the market. This makes the AI Smoke HL iron an attractive option for golfers seeking performance and value.

The Verdict: AF Golf Store Score

  • Look: 6.5/10
