    I was told that the changes from the 2012 model RazorFit which I play, and think is amazing, are cosmetic only. They put a lot of R&D into that driver, and it shows. For me it was clearly the best head on the market..

    Has anyone seen Callaway’s other wood presumably the X-Hot? Heard great things but can’t find any info……think they’d want to get the word out.

    Yah go with something from wal-mart or a store like that. Just to start out and once you are good euongh to need better clubs then go on to higher brands at that point. Good luck! your going to need it, its one of the hardest sports out there. Was this answer helpful?

    the next wave from Callaway will be called the Razr Fit Xtreme so they say…..more colorful to look at and a bit hotter off the face.

    Phil said today from HSBC in China that he’s playing a ‘hotter’ set of woods that Callaway plan to release in 2013. His #3 wood was going a long way today!

    @cobranut, Callaway Razr Fit drivers are the best drivers on tour……. Ask any pro and they will tell ya that they are.. they would switch if they could, but due to sponsor obligations, they cannot. I’ve hit just about every driver, TM, Cobra, titleist, Mizuno, and Nike… Razr Fit gives me the most out of shot shaping and hitting my shot right where i want it, unlike the rest of the drivers……

    Focus on feel? Really? Taste begins with smell and feel begins with presentation. if you like something (like a color) you will FEEL better about playing it PERIOD. Although i’m not abig fan of Callaway I’m suprised it’s taken this long for a manufacturer to figure it out. IF you hit the ball flush all equipment FEELS good. If it comes in my favorite color all the better.

    I feel the same as many of the comments above. I have emailed Callaway. I probably will not get a response, but at least they know how I (we) feel.

    Callawy for years has lost focus for feel. The last time I thought it was cool to play Callaway was the Biggest Big Berta. These clubs may look cool, but if it takes colors to generate revenue, you may want to rethink your clubs performance.

    I’m sure golf has hit somewhat of a wall when it comes to creating longer drivers, but dang, focus on feel!

    Color is exciting. That said, what is the performance benefit of the new drivers?

    Rainbow drivers; clothes by Rickie Fowler and John Daly: Is golf becoming a circus act? I cannot imagine Bobby Jones in a zebra print shirt, orange pants and a candycane driver.

    Black is the stock option. As stated these are a few options for the uDesign custom system.

    Purple or blue would due. Although I am not a big fan of Callaway so it would take more then a snazzy color for me to lug it around.

    Purple I would definitely play the purple

    kevmonton you are dead on, I switched all my gear to Cobra and am very happy I did, much better clubs which concentrate on performance first then they chose to paint the heads. Used to hit a Callaway FT-iZ and loved it but wanted more distance and control and none of the new gear they produce gave me that.

    If Callaway was as concerned about the performance of their products they wouldn’t have to produce multi-colored clubs to generate sales…………..

      u-design is only an option !! Callaway has it’s heart in the tradition of performance……….so why the hate that they have outdone the others in the color stakes. I can’t imagine they are going to turn their backs on the traditional Black Head ?

Today from the Forums: “Recommend me a 14th club…”

Published

on

Today from the Forums showcases our members helping out ewe8523 who is on the hunt for a 14th club. Per ewe8523:

“My home course is fairly short 6050 yards, so I’m not really in a position where I have to hit a lot of long fairway shots. There is one par 5 on each side – 548 and 449 respectively.

Open to other options as well.

Including current specs and avg distance.

  1. Driver – Cobra F9 – 250 yards
  2. 3-Wood – Cobra F7 – 220 yards
  3. Hybrid – Callaway Epic – 200 yards
  4. 5 Iron – Callaway Apex CF16 – 175 yards
  5. 6 Iron – Callaway Apex CF16 – 165 yards
  6. 7 Iron – Callaway Apex CF16 – 155 yards
  7. 8 Iron – Callaway Apex CF16 – 145 yards
  8. 9 Iron – Callaway Apex CF16 – 130 yards
  9. PW – Callaway Apex CF16 – 115 yards
  10. 50 Degree – Vokey SM6 – 100 yards
  11. 56 Degree – Vokey SM6 – 75 yards
  12. 60 Degree – Cleveland CBX – Bunker Only
  13. Putter – Scotty Cameron Newport 2
  14. ?”

WRXers have been giving their suggestions on what could work best for ewe8523, and also discussing what they have found most useful from a 14th club standpoint.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • heathpitts: “Very similar setup and gapping to my setup. Although my wedge lofts are a bit different. I have wedges at 50, 54, 58, and 62 but generally, only carry 3 per round. I adjust the 54-62 based on where I’m gonna play. I do also have a graphite shafted 3 utility iron that I play around with as a driving iron, but I see that you haven’t really found one that you like. I adjust the 14th club based on the course or conditions or time of year (due to different wedge grinds) sometimes but try to keep it as simple as possible. I think your setup is pretty good honestly. I always seem to score better with fewer options, so I don’t try to get cute with shot selection 🙂 I play 13 clubs a lot of times.”
  • MP4444: “I agree with the others on a club to hit that 185-190yrd spot. Either a hybrid or an iron with extra help compared to the CF16s. I personally have a 4 hybrid and a more game-improvement style 5 iron that I use interchangeably for this spot in my bag depending on how I’m striking the ball. When my ball striking is on, I usually prefer an iron in this spot because my misses are smaller, but it’s nice to have the help of a hybrid when I’m not feeling so on with my game. If you go the iron route just be sure to check out the lofts to ensure the proper gapping. Some game improvement and super game improvement type irons have stronger lofts so you may need to look at a 4 or 5 iron depending on the model. I would also recommend hitting both on a launch monitor and comparing peak height and spin numbers. You are still typically looking to hold a green at this distance, so you want to make sure you are getting enough height and spin to have a chance.”
  • Z1ggy16: “The obvious choice is like a 188-yard club but if you never need that shot… Why spend the money? Other option is like a 64* wedge, but that’s probably going to get you into trouble more often than not. I’d lean toward the 185-190 yard club, probably another hybrid, gives you more flexibility if you play other courses that are longer.”

Today from the Forums: “Best 54/56-degree wedge for a sweeper?”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 54 and 56-degree wedges which are effective on full shots from tight lies. WRXer, 10of14, is a sweeper of the ball and has reached out to fellow members who have been giving their suggestions in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • dhen9: “M grind or ES Glide 2.0.”
  • PowerCobra98: “Callaway MD4 or MD5 with the C Grind.”
  • bsb70x7: “I am a sweeper and a low bounce player. I play Vokey 54 with 10* of bounce (as my highest bounce). You may want to go with 8* of bounce if you use your Lob wedge in the sand.”
  • NYCGolfNut: “I’m the same. M grind Vokey – 8 deg bounce, heel and toe relief. Works great.”

Today from the Forums: “Searching for a 5-wood”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 5-woods, with WRXer, RAMDAN, on the hunt for a new addition to his bag. Our members discuss the options on the market and give their take on the best models from their experiences.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Golf64: “Cobra F8 and 9s are still out there, and the new SZ is nice too. I prefer Ping, love the look and feel and easy to get in the air!!”
  • KGilma: “I just replaced my F6 baffler with the F9. It is a definite upgrade. I still have the F6 if you’re interested.”
  • bjh1: “Recently got an Epic Flash 5 wood (regular, not sub-zero), and I am loving it! Can’t go wrong sticking with the Callaway.”
  • jah7838: “I agree with those mentioning the Baffler and the other various Cobra offerings. F8+ and F9 Tour are really good clubs. I just got the F9 Tour 3 wood, and it’s really easy to elevate with the right shaft. I still have my Baffler that I’m going to mess around with as my 5 wood. I was using it as my 4 wood for last season, and really liked it, but I found a good deal on a like-new F9 Tour 3 wood that I couldn’t pass up. The issue I’m going to have with the Baffler as my 5 wood is that I’ve had my Adams 19* XTD Super Hybrid that it’s going to have to beat out. I’ve had that club for so long now, and I’m going to have a hard time not keeping that one in the bag. It’s not a knock on the Baffler; it’s just how much I trust the XTD.”
  • AG12: “I just was given a PING G410 5W to try, and I think it’s the easiest FW to elevate and just wants to go straight. I think j the Tour 75 shaft that PING offers is a great shaft as well. Worth a look if you’re in the market.”
