Callaway's Warbird clubs?? Anyone seen these?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I guess the new Octane and Razr lines weren't good enough, so now there is the Warbird line?  The irons kind of look like an X-18 head.  I can't even find them on Callaway's website.  Must be a box store deal for Dick's only??

FUGLY....like the Diablos

The driver looks like those $20 clubs you see at Dick's. They're probably comparable to the Taylor Made Burner Plus, that are only available at Sports Authority.

I don't get Callaway. These Warbirds, the Diablos, and the x20/22s all look so similar it's not even funny.

They're paying homage to what may be the best all around driver in the history of golf.

 

Sort of like they paid homage to a great set of forged cavity backs with their new vomitous "Edge" irons - I'm looking at them right now in the Golfsmith ad appearing on the bottom of my screen.

Not sure what the irons are, they don't look like anything Callaway has released previously.  The lofts are way off from the diablo edges, closer to the X-12's and X-14's.

Callaway has had War Bird woods before. original WBs came out circa 2005, and the popular fairway woods featured a curved sole to reduce turf drag. This line had the famous "Heavenwood" AKA 7-Wood. Go on Callaway Pre-Owned to see a picture.

Some had Memphis 10 steel shafts, others 96 gr. or 90 gr. graphite shafts |

An old WB that is very good or like new can still sell for $85. I had a chance to get a "good shape" 5W and 7W this January at a Golf Expo, but opted against it because I already had a TM Raylor.

Warbirds:

 

4 - 23°

5 - 27°

6 - 30°

7 - 33°

8 - 37°

9 - 41°
PW - 45°

AW - 50°

 

The lofts are identical to the X-20 except for the 4 iron, the X-20 is 24°.   Same as the X-22's also except for the 4i and AW.

I can't blame Cleveland if they did manufacture these and end up selling them exclusively at Dicks.  Might as well try and steal some of the $200-300 box set club market from the Hogan/Slazenger/Maxfli/Acuity lines that Dick's puts out.

Huh, I bought my TM Burner Plus at Golf Galaxy. 

The Burner Plus irons were sold by everybody.

WOW you guys sure do bash the Diablo's. I happen to like the way they look and play. To each his own.

Not the irons, the driver. I've never seen it anywhere other than Sports Authority.

Can't comment on the history of Warbird irons, but the Warbird soleplate on their woods is from the 90s.

That Warbird version was introduced in the Korean market sold as a full set.  Brought to the U.S. in 2011 by Dick's Sporting Goods.  For full specifications go to:

I saw them at Dick's not sure where they fit into the rest of the Callaway line, but they looked like a an combination of the Diablo Edges and X-20 series.  I didn't really care for the look or color scheme.

How do they play and hold up?  Anyone know?

 

Weird that most of what was said was "....they look like...." - "....must be box store quality....." - who cares?  How are they built and how do they play?

Doesn't sound like anyone knows for sure, but I'll take a wild guess that anyone familiar with the original Callaway BB with Warbird soleplate will be not buying this version. They (Callaway) hit a home run with the 1st generation WB.
