The New Taylor Made Raylor

17 posts in this topic

WOW!!! What a great trouble club. While I've only play two rounds with the club I've been heartily impressed. Out of the rough shots are spectacular. So far I've had four deep rpough shots all onto the green. I expect that my handicap will fall with this club as one of my major problems was heavy rough. I highly recomend this piece of equipment.

How well do you hit it from the fairway?

It looks to be very hard to hit because the bottom of the club is so narrow.

To be honest with you, I haven't hit it from the fairway. I bought the club for trouble shots. I'm going out today and will try it off the fairway and report back.

You are not supposed to hit it from the fairway, it is for deep rough.

I think you are mistaken, here.

Who is gonna dedicate a slot in their bag for a "deep rough long iron replacement club"??

I agree with Dub, why would you dedicate a slot in your bag to lies in the rough only? Regardless, I hit my nike 4h off the tee, off the fairway, from the rough, wherever. It's quickly becoming my favorite club. I'm debating whether or not to replace my 4 iron with a 5h.

As the link above notes, the club can be used from the fairway.

Not to rain on the parade, but while it looks like a nice club it doesn't appear to be much different than a TM V-Steel 7 wood I play, 21*.

And being an inch longer, I think that makes the club worse. In the rough it's more difficult to make solid contact with the ball. Increasing the shaft length doesn't help in my opinion.

I hit the 4 hybrid at Golf Galaxy and it hit fine off of the mats. But the mat be a little more forgiving than regular ground. I loved hitting them. The ball just flew off of the face.

whoevers post a couple ahead is correct.. its main design is to get you out of the rough easier than a fairway wood or a hybrid would. the design is so that the bottom point of it cuts through the rough allowing more solid contact with the ball to the face... its not that farfetched to have a club mainly for the rough(all though, yes you can use it in the fairway) its just like saying why would you have a club mainly to get out of the sand, or why would you have a club to get lob it over a hazard. makes good sense imo

My Ginty knockoff, same as a Raylor... magic. My point of showing the old club is that the Raylor is pretty expensive and with some effort a person could probably find some old version for next to nothing.

I remember the Ginty. My brother had one and he always carried it in his bag. But to more important things, As I promised, I used my Raylor in the fairway almost exclusively yesterday and it's a gret fairway hybrid. I felt no difference between my Raylor and my Nike CPR in the fairway. You guys are also correct that the club is designed specificcally for getting out of the rough But the club will stay in my hybrid slot.

I am glad to hear it played well on the fairway. I think I should replace my 22* #4 rescue with one. Thanks for buying one and telling us about it.

I am pretty sure my wife is getting me the 22* for Christmas. I play from the rough quite often and this club "spoke" to me. I also have a Fybrid for when I do manage to get into the fairway.

I don't usually do "trouble clubs" but i have a Raylor floating around the shop... I'll just have to wait till May... (best case scenario) to even swing a club... I have to learn how to walk again... If my damn pelvis ever heals... PM me I'll explain it...
