Razr Fit or Razr Fit Xtreme???

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

All things equal, should I get the Razr Fit for $180 or the Razr Fit Xtreme for 300? Is there a $120 dollar difference in them. I've hit the xtreme and really like it but want to make sure the money is justified between two seemingly similar models.

Go hit the Razr Fit and see if it stacks up. I would say there is little performance difference in the heads so that is cosmetic and preference. The real difference is in what shaft is best for you.

Agree with tourspoon.  The difference in the heads is not $180.  I had the RazrFit and got re-fitted in December ... ended up with the X-hot pro instead of the xtreme.

 

If the two clubs have the same shaft, then go with the cheaper one.  If not, hit them both and see which shaft works for you.

Both good heads, Xtreme head is smaller and slightly lower launch and lower spin.

I have the Xtreme and played the RAZR Fit last year. As others have said, they are both solid choices. Get on a launch monitor and compare spin and ball speed. Make sure you get the proper shaft. Enjoy!

I ended up with the Razr Fit Tour Authentic because the PX Black shaft really fits my game. There was no comparison between the stock Razr and Extreme offerings.

where are you able to get the extreme for $300?  All of the places that I have seen it, they are asking $400 for it.

 

If I could find it for $300, I might cancel the order on the Nike Covert that I just placed and go with the Callaway instead (since I hit it a little better)

 

Thank you

No I bought the TA for $299. Much better shaft IMO.

Except that they don't make the TA in LH. 

 

I got fit, and the Extreme LH driver was the winner in my fitting, but the price was outside of my reach.  I went with the Nike, but am finding that LH Covert performance drivers are back ordered.  So I am now thinking of cancelling my order and was hoping to find the callaway for that $300 (or even $350)

I understand. You may want to check out the Octane Tour. They are dirt cheap and my TA numbers are just a hair better than my Octane Tour numbers. They have very similar shafts. Anyway, good luck in your search.

Is the Octane a 2013 club? 

 

Did you compare it to other brands?  I am thinking of giving the Anser and 910D2/D3 another look.  I like the adjustability of the Titleist heads, and I already have a 910F that I love so if I can find the right loft / shaft combo for the 913 that might be better. 

 

I had A crazy amount of spin off of the G25 (5500rpm) but was thinking the Anser which is lower spinning might give me a better result. 

 

My swing speed isn't fast by any means (99~102 with a good swing, 105~106 when I crank on it)

The Octane is an 11 club. I bought the Tour model which has a project x shaft that really fit me well. Both the DOT and the Razr TA had similar spin @ 2700 when I hit them side by side. I ended up getting the TA because of the adjustable weighting and the dispersion was better.  Here are my numbers from the other day based on a similar swing speed.

At D4 I have the face open .5 a degree (S+ which is about 9.2 degrees of loft) with the heel weighted at 6g and the toe weighted at 8g for a slight fade bias. I tried this today and hit about 25 balls. I threw out the first 5 drives and came up with these averages for the next 20 with a low distance of 238 and a high of 295:

 

SS 99

Ball speed 144.6 (1.46 factor) 

Spin 2750

Carry 246

Total 271

AoA  -0.9

LA 12.7

 

With the DOT the numbers with a 103 swing (I was playing more) were similar with carry being in the 250-255 range, a tad higher launch, a tad less spin. Anyway the DOT was a sleeper in my opinion, has the carbon fiber technology, and a decent shaft and will remain as a worthy back-up. It is worth trying one on the launch monitor. The only thing it doesn't have is the ability to adjust. It has been said before that the driver faces are maxed out, so finding something with the right shaft is key whether it is new or just a few years old. The last time I saw the DOT in a big box they were marked @ 120.

I am more inclined to spend $300+ on a driver that a launch fitting has shown works, than to buy something for $120 that doesn't.  My preferred golf store doesn't have the DOT any longer in LH / Stiff.   

 

I currently game the Cleveland DST Launcher with the "made for" Diamana red 44 and when I hit it well, it has plenty of distance.  The problem is that more often than not I slice the ball into the next fairway.  I believe that I found the flaw, and just need to ingrain the swing On my irons, we fixed the problem by compacting the back swing, and  the result is a full club length more distance. 

 

So my thinking as of late is to cancel the Covert that I have on order, wait until I get the driver that I have straightened out, and once I do, get fit for the right club at that time.  I really believe that once I figure out the swing fault, my needs for a driver will have vastly changed.

I would never recommend you buy a driver without hitting it on a launch monitor first. Yesterday's must haves are today's bargains but in the end it's your swing that is the biggest factor not any driver. Slicing into another fairway is not the club and working it out is the best advice that you could follow. Good luck and update us as you go.

As an update, the Nike wasn't as back logged as the store had anticipated so I ended up getting the covert after all.

Played 2 rounds with it. I am still getting used to it. The adjustability is nice, but to be honest, I don't really notice the difference between open, neutral, and closed.
