Which would you pick for a driver and 3 wood and why?

I myself am getting the Razr Fit Xtreme Black Tie in the Driver and 3 wood.

I intend to try both the RFX and X Hot Pro models and then make my decision..... no bias here.
I believe for all the OEMs that I try it will boil down to which has the best fit stock shaft for me.  I have no intention of paying up for a shaft.  The stocks should be just fine.

And I do intend to try all the OEM new stuff out this spring...  :D

I'm leaning heavy toward Cally so far based on what i've read and seen.  I do intend to check out the G25 though.

It must be an OCD thing having to have the same fairway wood as driver.  I know because my wedges have to be all the same brand and model.  Everything must match. I have order the same driver as you. I haven't even seen one in the flesh yet.

Both great lines - both feature outstanding cosmetics / look great in the playing position, and even more important, performance is amazing.

From a driver perspective, you are really going to have to hit them both to see and judge for yourself.  They are both incredible.

Fairways: with as solid as the RAZR Fit models are, looks, performance, and adjustability, I think the stars of the show are the XHot and XHot Pro models.  Be sure to try them all, but I think a majority will be amazed with the looks, sound, feel, and performance of the XHot fairways.  They have a "modernized" WarBird sole, if you remember back to those, which performs great.  What a fairway should be, perform from ALL situations, tee, fairway, and rough.  Make sure you don't sell the normal XHot model short and only try the XHot Pro, the standard XHot version is really, really good too, even for the better golfers.

If it were me, I would get the Razr driver and the X Hot Pro 3 wood and hybrid. Not a big fan of the X Hot Pro stock shafts, though. Like something a little heavier.

I've preordered the xtreme driver and 3 wood both with the trinity shaft. 2 reasons. It looks smart as and I had the razr fit last year with the stock Adlai ripd nv and I smash it. I used to be a confident 3 wood hitter. Had the mx700 mizuno but sold it to buy the rbz. Can't  play with a white club for some reason. So buying driver and 3 wood

Golfsmith have been pretty good with the shaft upgrade pricing.  It is great as they have been really poor in the past.

I was fortunate enough to go on the CALLAWRX trip... After a full bag fitting I ended up with different irons and driver/FW than I thought I wanted...

I ended up with the RFE 10.5 (440 head) and 17* RFE FW

After seeing true ball flight and trackman numbers, I needed a lower spinning head in my driver (my own swing flaw- steep)

I am really intrigued by the X-Hot Pro driver, and fairway.  The driver seems to be the one the majority of staffers are putting in the bag so it must be pretty good.  I look forward to giving it a whirl.  Also, if the fairway is really as hot as they say, as well as easy to hit it may find a way in the bag.  I just find it hard to believe that they could out do the RBZ Tour.

The RBZ was and still is a bomber for a large number of players. A few that have hit the new xhot pro have switched.  The fact they switched must say something.  No real point in changing if you are not gaining any performance or feel improvements. Although I have changed clubs on a whim that i just wanted to try the new model out just because it was a new model.

I am undecided, I do get the chance to hit all the new product in the next few weeks outside here in utah if it gets above freezing, then I get to pick my setup for the year.
I'm thinking it's going to be RFX driver  XHOT tour fairway and XHOT tour hybrid. but never know that may change when you hit everything
I have 2 shafts for driver already and a DI7S that i played in my fit fairway last year so could easily end up being RFX diver and fairway.
