    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…………..

    I love my razr fit and was really excited about the extreeme, but no black, come on guys give me something traditional looking

      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 ?

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

What do you think?

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
