New clubs, new ball flight.

6 posts in this topic

I just got a new pair of Razr Black irons and I find that my shots which weren't perfectly straight but passable before, are now really moving left to right (I'm LH), starting well left and really coming back right. Any suggestions? Opinions?

Are they offset? The reason I never liked Callaway products, is because they all have offsets, to help prevent slicing.

I just looked at them on Callaway's site. They are indeed offset. That will promote a draw for more so than an non-offset iron.

That's nice, but I believe, almost all irons, except for a few blades, have offset.

It's the amount of offset that bothers some people, although I believe you can adjust your rotation without thinking about it too much for relief.

I'm not certain of the geometry involved, my worst subject, but if the club ball flight starts left, that usually means the face is open at impact for a lefty. Now are you saying the offset causes so much sidespin that one gets a huge draw (for a lefty)? Does it cause more of an inside path to the ball?

The OP can also compare the offset of his old irons against the new irons to determine if there is a large difference.

RAZR X Black Irons

The iron has a curious head design. Despite having noticeable offset, it also has a diagonal bar on back of clubhead from mid-sole back toward the heel. I've hit these irons on several occasions. The bar seemingly prevents the clubhead from getting too much "draw bias" as the head moves through the ball.

Also, the GolfWorks guys warn that offset is overrated for causing draws. Main effect offset has is promoting better hand position for golfers with less vigorous swings.

Any chance an extra wrap of tape under the grips might reduce the draw?

Also, what shafts do you have? Stock shafts are:

  • M10 steel Uniflex (flex between R and S), weight about 110 grams.
  • RazrX Black graphite (R and S flex both weigh 75 grams, and are low torque)

What shafts did your old irons have?

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
