Great Callaway irons: razr x & RAZR X Tour

For many years, Callaway's signature line of irons, the X Series, has made the company one of the dominant forces in category. You can now say goodbye to the X Series and hello to the new RAZR irons. These irons are built on a different foundation than their predecessors.

First is the cheap Callaway RAZR X Irons,

The RAZR X is a game-improvement iron that has a huge hitting area. Replacing the X-22 and Callaway X-24 Hot Irons in Callaway's line, each of the eight irons in the standard RAZR X set are made using a new variable face thickness technology, which makes the hitting area thinner as you move away from the center. This feature broadens the sweet spot and maintains ball speed on off-center hits.

Luke Williams, Callaway's director of product design, says, "We added the extension to the back, so it's not a part of the sole. It's relieved from the sole so it won't interfere with the way the club goes through the turf." It's also not visible to the golfer at address.

The center of gravity (CG) in the new RAZR X is 12% lower and 15% deeper than the Callaway x-22 irons uk, so shots hit lower in the face should fly higher. And because the CG is so low, Callaway designers were able to strengthen the lofts of the RAZR X irons to give you more distance.

Second is Callaway RAZR X Tour,

The Callaway RAZR X Tour Iron Set creates tighter shots, shorter putts and lower scores through uncompromised performance. Most irons today are designed to maximize one specific performance benefit- distance, forgiveness or feel- while sacrificing all other critical areas needed to hit more greens.

"What we've done is maintain the narrower sole width, which better players tend to prefer." Williams says. "But by repositioning the weight in the cavity lower and deeper in the iron we've been able to drive the center of gravity lower and deeper." However, in the Tour model, the re-positioned RAZR weight is smaller. Callaway RAZR fit driver uk

There's less offset in the RAZR X Tour irons when compared with the RAZR X, but once again, because the CG has been driven so low and deep, Callaway strengthened the lofts of the RAZR X Tours.

"This is the only iron in our line that's forged," Williams says. "So it's got the feel of a forged iron [which many Tour pros prefer], and it's got our new Competition grooves, which in the cheap golf clubs au we can forge into the faces. We can control the grooves much more effectively in a forging than in a casting."
