I haven't hit the X Forged UT, but I have the u85 and it seems better suited for getting a little more height out of the 4 iron.  The Xforged seems to suit someone who needs a bit more speed off the face but not necessarily help with trajectory.  It's got a thinner sole, a bit smaller overall.  U85 definitely has a lot of weight low and you need to make the right swing to hit low burners.  

 

Any reasons you're against a hybrid?

U85 hands down. I’ve had both. U85 is hotter and easier to elevate off the deck but can still be flighted off the tee. X Forged may look a tad better but Srixon did a good job with “hiding” the back cavity when looking down at address. U85 is the best UT iron I’ve hit hands down and I’ve hit a lot of them.
