Callaway Visit! Tons of in-hand pics of the 2013 Callaway Razr Xtreme, X Hot Driver, X Hot... - Page 3

Who's your daddy??? ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AppleMark

 

 

Just arrived today ... can't wait to break it in tomorrow!  Got a little bit of a surprise as it came with a Project X 6.0, rather than the Diamana Kaili I was expecting ... but no worries as I already have said Diamana on my RazrFit and can just swap them.  Now I have 2 different shafts in case I want to tinker. ;)

 

Review coming soon after I've had a chance to give it a whack a few times, and take it out to the course.

Is the shaft set to closed??  From this angle it looks really toe-in.  Would you take a pic in the neutral position with the ball at address??

Just the angle of the pic and the how the head is positioned, here's a pic from an earlier post

Yeah, I was holding the club in one hand and the camera in the other, and not really paying attention to how I was holding it.  It is untouched out of the box at this point, so I am sure that its set to neutral, or whatever is standard.  You reminded me, though, that I need to check it once to be sure. :)

 

I'm supposed to be out at the range right now, but sadly, we have rain today. d1_bigcry.gif

Is that the 9.5 or 10.5*??

 

I'm trying to decide which one to order and no one in my area has one YET, grrrr.  I sometimes don't like how the 10.5* heads jettison out at the bottom.

Well, I got fitted at Callaway for this before Christmas and just received it yesterday because it was backordered ... so I'm not surprised that they're hard to find elsewhere.

I'm not sure what you mean here??

The pic I put up is of the 9.5 head, again from earlier pics in the thread

post #45 of 52

Yeah, I know the pics you made were 10.5*.  I was referring to the other...

 

By jettison, I meant the leading edge - bottom of the face.  Looking straight down, does the bottom stick-out prominently from the top-edge of the face where it meets the crown?

post #46 of 52

Ok, thanks!! I thought that's what it was but I just wanted to be certain...

I just got mine today and will be at the very least hitting the range tomorrow if not playing... Looking forward to it. Look for the review on the main site in about a month or so.

Yeah, I've only used mine at the range so far.  I had to switch out the shaft to my kaili, but I really like it so far.  After I've played with it a few times, I'll review it on this thread as well as just a regular review.

 

Good luck!  Which loft and shaft did you get?

Mine is exactly the same as what you received. 10.5 Pro, Project X Velocity stiff. I'm going to see how this shaft plays as far as my review goes but I may pick up a different shaft to put in it eventually (I got a buddy with access to a lot of different shafts and a Trackman).

Been using this just over a week now and so far I'm very impressed. Much better ball flight and dispersion compared to the RBZ Tour I was using.

 

Callaway was actually at my home course today doing a demo day so I talked to the guys a little bit and hit some of the other stuff including the new X Forged irons (very nice) as well as a X Hot 4 wood. The guy put one of the "Bomb Patches" on my head cover... I like it:

Thanks for pumping up the Cally brand. I have been sold on the woods since my BB 454 with the green NV. I then hit the Diablo Octane Tour with the PX 6.0 (.5" short) and picked up a solid 10 yards. Since then I have been putting that DOT against all comers and it has not been kicked out of the bag. Six months ago I ran it against the Tour Preferred version of the Razr (limited run) and the TP version just edged it out. It was not enough to pay retail, so I thought I would wait. I can't find one. I have my cousin who is Titleist staff trying to track one down. Yesterday, I specifically hit the Razr Extreme with the BowTie (and a few others) against my DOT and the fitter stopped and told me not to lose the DOT. I did not hit the XHot. Did anyone see a big difference in the Extreme and the XHot?   

 

I also have had success with the DOT Tour 15*. Another great stick that fits me well that puts it out there. Before that I was stroking the X something 15* with a Fuji TourPlatform. Anyway, it's nice to see some Cally hype. The brand has been hot for a while and was a well kept secret with the DOTs. The DOTs are being blown out at 149 at most places so if any of you guys are on a budget you should at least give it try. The faces are hot and the PX in the Tour Version is a decent shaft.

Hit the X today in a few different combinations. It was close but my DOT was still in the money.i am still looking for the TP Razr.
