Appears the X Hot will be the lower price point line in 2013.  Adjustability added to the driver, decent looking FW and Hy.  The irons look like re-heated left-overs of the RAZR-X line.
Never forget that the luxury of being
wrong is not enough to make you right.

Hit this line last week.
Love the tour 3wd :)  Clean crown, good sound & went forever.
Compared the 15* tour to my 13* XTD. The hot was easier to hit and seamed to carry further than my adams.
I actually like the stock shaft as well.

I believe this is the fairway wood that is supposed to rival the RBZ and have a super high COR. The Driver lacks adjustable weights and the Forged Composite material that makes up the Fusion Technology line(RAZR Xtreme this year). This is no surprise considering Callaway has had the High End line that uses the Fusion Technology and the Lower end X line that doesn't for quite a number of years. The interesting thing to me is unless Callaway hangs on to the RAZR Black line they will no longer have a glued driver in their line up. I'm still confused as to why Taylormade brought a glued driver back into its line up.

Not sure this is going to be the answer to the new RBZ2 which will also be max cor and adjustable.  I guess I was expecting a little more from the hype this line was getting .

Actually, I have the last model.  They don't look like this.  They look a little better in IMO than this one.  It was just obscenly expensive being forged.

It looks pretty clean.  I like it so far.  Would love to see an "at address" position.  With OEM's coming out with max COR fairways, it will be interesting to see what the upcoming year will hold.

This just dawned on me. Callaway named the Xtreme incorrectly.

Since it looks like it's dropping everything RAZR from their lineup, they should have called the RAZR FIT Extreme = X FIT. Plain and simple.

These clubs feel very balanced in your hand. Different to the last offerings. A step up I believe in looks and 'in hand feel' alone. Not having hit the product yet I cant comment on performance.
They do LOOK good in person. I was impressed by the driver and pro fairway the most! Felt like a bomber of a driver....no idea why just did

This is it. And believe the hype. trust me. VERY significant technology/design difference between these and the RBZ. VERY different launch characteristics off the deck. Just an absolute homerun for Callaway.
