Callaway X Hot Clubs

12 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm new here and pretty new to club and I'm looking for some advice and expertise from you guys as I'm totally no idea what a good deal is for clubs.

I'm looking to buy the following and would like to know what I should expect to pay for such a set.

Callaway X Hot Driver

Callaway X Hot 3 Wood

Callaway X Hot 3 iron Hybrid

Callaway X Hot irons 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, SW & LW

How much would I be expecting to pay?

Also would you say the Callaway X Hot LW is a better wedge than the Callaway Forged copper wedge?

Thanks in advance for your help and advice

Keith

Thanks I will do but what would you say is a good price?

Would £829 for the lot sound ok to you?

Do your research and shop around as the X-hot Driver and FW have dropped in price.

I've been looking around for a good few days now and have had a lot if different quotes that's why I'm asking what you guys would expect to pay for them now.

Would you say £829 for the lot is good?

If that's about $1,300 US, it sounds reasonable.

Yes it is pretty much bang on $1300 US when you convert it. Its the cheapest I found them on the internet in the UK, It's went from £933 all the way down to £829 so maybe that is the best I'm going to get was just checking in case you guys knew of something I didn't.

Didn't want to buy them then find out I could've got them for sub £800 if I'd only asked the experts.

Cheers Mr. Desmond I think I'll just go with that website and buy them

I'm not sure of your playing background. Are you new to golf this season, or just starting to play regularly after an introduction in previous years?

If you are just starting, have you had any lessons? Learning the basics can help most people improve quickly in golf.

Do you own any clubs right now? If so, what kind are they (model and shaft flex).

If you are going to get the Callaway XHot group or any other clubs, be sure you hit them first before you buy them. Have a local fitter do a static fitting to see if you need any tweaks to the clubs such as longer or shorter shafts, change to lie angle, or thicker grips.

Wedges: The best wedge is the one that feels best for you. Some golfers like the higher wedges (G, S and L) that come with an iron set. Others like the specialty wedges (ones not directly connected to iron set).

You asked about price, but I also agree with WUTiger.

I hope you've demoed them and were fit somewhere at a green grass or retail account before going to the web to find them.

Also, make certain they are authentic Callaway - lots of fakes going around - make certain the retailer is an authorized Callaway Dealer.

As to wedges, the XHots run strong to loft, so I'd seriously consider buying the gap wedge in that set (49 degrees of loft) and then a 56. I'd probably avoid the XHot Wedge as it may be a bit bulky. I'm not a big fan of the Callaway Forged - but I'd probably opt for the 56-11 - if you want Callaway set. The Callaway Forged will be more precise and direct in feel. Playing over there, my guess is you do a lot of bump and runs so a 60 LW is not mandatory. It depends on your level of skill.

Callaway is a good brand, so they aren't cheap. You get what you pay for. However I absolutely LOVE my irons. Dropped 5 strokes immediately. Getting the driver soon.

I have the x hot driver, 3w, 3h, 4h, and 5h and love them all.  I don't have to swing hard to get good distance.  I'd recommend these clubs.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
