Though I purchased the clubs for my nephew, who plays golf less than ten times per year and tends to push the ball to the right (right handed golfer), I did try them a couple of times during the past Autumn season.As mentioned above, this set is definitely designed for the category called super game improvement or max game improvement.Excessive offset and weight towards the heel helps casual golfers square the face on time.Lots of weight at sole and wide sole helps to keep players from digging into the turf, hitting fat shots, and also helps get the ball high into the air.If that's what you are seeking, these are a great set for you, and the price is very cheap still.Thus, a good set for casual golfers who just want to hit high, straight shots.More advanced golfers will seek other types of irons. Better golfers would probably find themselves hooking the ball with these.High marks, but ONLY for the specific type of golfer this club is addressing.
The Callaway FT-iz hybrid is for the golfer who wants to hit the ball high and straight all the time. Like any hybrid, it is far easier to hit than the corresponding iron, but this particular hybrid has a ball flight that is somewhat between a hybrid and a fairway wood of the same loft in that it hits the ball rather high.
If you are a zero to 9 handicap sell whatever you are playing and buy Callaway X-Forged irons. Whether they qre 2007 or 2009 doesn'r matter. They are great clubs.
I was looking at the adams v3 and the razr irons also. the adams wanted way too much if you just wanted to buy several of the clubs and the razr's didn't do much for me...too thin of a sole.
This is an excellent head on a not so great factory shaft. I tried a bunch of light shafts in this head, and they are just too light and too much torque for my swing. I hit it a real long ways when I hit it solid, but that was rare. Might be better for the slower swinging golfer
This is a much better driver if you have a higher than average swing speed, especially if you have a late release. Very long off the tee and easy to hit
If you are looking for a new Callaway driver. please test the Octane as well as the more expensive Razr Hawk. If you have a high swing speed with a late release, you might find that the Octane is a better fit with it's heavier shaft, and slightly smaller head. My average distance went up with this driver and my accuracy was a good bit better at the same time. More Workable but Less foregiving than the Razr Hawk, but for a high swing speed golfer with a pro style swing, it might be the better choice, It was for me.
As much as I like the new RAZR X iron heads, I just can't stand the uniflex steel shafts that come standard in these irons. They might be fine with the graphite shafts, but if you like steel shafts, look elsewhere for a set of irons. Try the RAZR X Tour with good Dynamic Gold or Rifle shafts instead. I'm sure they might work okay for some, but they sure don't with my swing. I'll give the heads a 5, and the steel shafts a 1
If you are looking for a new set of high quality irons, demo a set of the RAZR X Tour irons today. Get fit for the correct lie angle by a good club fitter, and try a few of the shaft options available in these irons. From my fitting, we came up with standard lie angle and TT Dynamice Gold S300 shafts as the best fit. Extremely long irons, 6 iron was giving me 215 yards of carry, which is major long. Easy to hit and workable all in one set. For me, they are a litter longer than the Burner 2.0 with a higher ball flight due to 2 degrees more loft per club. RAZR X Tour 6 iron has 29* of loft compared to 28* for the non tour model, and 27* for the Burner 2.0 or Cleveland CG16 irons.
This was one of the longest drivers I demoed over the weekend. According to Golf Magazine, it was supposed to be real long, and it was for me. If you don't mind the $400 price tag, go demo this driver and find the right loft and flex for you and enjoy.
While it does work pretty well, it just takes too long ro re-set between balls. I have to wait on it between shots which gets old pretty fast. Could use more power than the 2 C cell batteries provide. If you just want a portable putting cup with a auto ball return for now and then use, like at the office, it would be okay. For everyday use, I'd go with a unit that runs on 110 Volts AC.
This is a good quality 2 piece low spin distance ball. It's a good ball, but nothing to set in apart from all the other balls in it's price range. Good ball for any high handicap or beginning golfer.
If you are looking for more distance combined with more spin than your current 2 piece ball, this HX Bite would be worth a try. It's plenty long and the spin is better than most any 2 piece ball I've played. May not be up to Tour standards for spin, but it sure beats most of the distance balls out there.
an excellent ball in the mid price range 2 piece catagory. Excellent distance off the tee with all clubs. The balls hold up very well. Average amount of spin. If you need a high spin ball, you might want to try a Callaway Tour ball instead. For the average golfer, this Diable ball should work very well.
I am in the fairway more consistently with no loss of distance. Never intended to go longer with it, just straighter, which it does.
If you are looking for a good driver at a reasonable price, check out the new Diable Edge that just came out. It's a nice looking driver with good foregiveness and distance. No loud noise like the older FT-I Tour drivers. But I didn't see the extra 8 more yards they claim in their ads.
Very good 5 wood. Easy to hit first time I tried it. Excellent distance and launch angle. I was getting 240 Yards carry on most of my shots. If you are looking for a new 5 wood, this one is worth checking out. One of the best I've hit.
In general,I am very pleased with the performance of the X-Tour irons.Having used them for two seasons,my confidence level has reached it's apex with these weapons in my hands.I honestly cannot remember so many iron shots knifing the flagstick from the moment of contact.With that being said,I will offer some cautious advice,these clubs are not for everybody.They are players clubs.What I mean by this is that a repeating golf swing, that can 90 out of a 100 times square the sweetspot,you will love the performance.The higher handicapper,whose miss hits will for the most part out number the solid ones,might want to look elsewhere,as I do not find the X-Tour irons very forgiving.In my opinion,there may be a few reasons for this 1)The face of the clubs are not as oversized as some of the others I,ve looked at,leaving a smaller margin for error on mishits, and 2)the Dynamic Gold shafts are stiff rather than standard if you by directly off the rack.This would mean that your clubhead speed would have to be in the upper tier if you want these clubs to perform properly.I will say,if you do catch it right,you,ll never feel the ball leave the club. As golfers,that's what we're all striving to achieve.
Really hard to say as a DEAD amateur, but as I said, the shaft seems 'wobbly' to me. Would like a bit stiffer shaft and perhaps a head with less 'depth' (I catch the ground a lot) All in all good honestly, just wouldnt mind a club a bit more suited to my style.
Can't recommend this club unless you want a club that plays much weaker than normal, to satisfy your ego.You can say that you play a Stiff flex shaft, when really it feels like an R flex shaft, but your playing partners won't know.And you'll get added height to your shots if needed.This club may be suited to some golfers, but not to me. I think slow swingers may actually like this club quite a bit, and they can get it in a flex stronger than they normally play to assuage thier ego.Aldila's swing speed recommendations seem to be way off, unless as I said, Callaway marked the shafts differently so that they are actually softer than labelled.I'm not a nitpicker, as I've played other Callaway branded clubs and liked them.A few years ago, they had a driver known as the Hyper X 460 Ti driver, and I liked that one very much.And I even liked the Callaway FT-iZ hybrid that I tried the same day, but this driver seems like an 'old man' club.I seriously doubt that Phil Mickelson has this stock shaft in his version of the driver, if in fact he plays this model.
I like this club. It is very versatile. I feel comfort from just about anywhere using this club. I like using the club on par 3s on the tee and in the middle of the fairway. I feel confident that it will sit once it hits the green.
If I could I would of had this club years ago, I really don't like Callaways!!!! Have used Bladed clubs forever, the FT-9 is a very useful addition.Please try one, you will be pleased.
Bottom line ? I've been trying to break 80 for a long time. Got these ball and last week last week I shot 76 off a 16 handicap and everyone calls me a bandit. Wouldn't have done that with a Pro V1.

Was able to find at a great price and got a good club.
