geeze tough crowd.    The guys a high handicapper & is loving his new clubs ... lighten up.      No wonder he hasn't replied ...

when I first started, I had old ratty flea market Dunlaps ... wouldn't be surprised when i got my TM's, it took 10-15 strokes off my game once I got used to them.

I just traded my G15 irons for the Razr X HL's, to be received on election day. Ping publishes offset values, but Callaway does not publish offset values for the Razr's. I hope the offsets are a little bit less than the Ping G15's. As couple of posters noted above, an offset club is easy to hook. It becomes very important to set the club neutral at address, meaning the score lines are exactly perpendicular to target.

I did the exchange because I tried hitting the #6 iron at Sports Authority and could not hit a bad shot with it. Most of all the ball went airborne even when hit a bit thin. And i was getting better feedback and sound than the Pings. I was immediately seduced! Now we shall see how they work on the course.

Hey joem1cha3l

I got my Razr HLs a few months back, and noticed a distance increase also. But I did get fitted for the first time with these, and my old irons were used Burners. So yeah, fitting did make a big difference in distance and consistency.

I like how the OP hits his 8 iron 170, if theres no wind and if he's not hitting downhill, he would have a tour-level swing speed.  Impressive (and impossible) for a guy who shoots 100.

i was thinking the same thing, 8i 170? he must have a ss of 120mph.

BUT, if you bought Ping EYE 2 no+'s, you would have the PGA tour knocking on your door.

Not quite my friend, not quite. If it were that simple, that's where I'd be right now, along with everyone else who saw what the pros used and bought that.

OK..so now I have played 10 rounds with RAZR X HL 6-AW. I bought used from Callaway pre-owned in "like new" condition, bent 1 deg flat, with regular flex steel

shafts. I am a senior with slower but smooth swing tempo. The 9-PW-AW worked

great. 6-7-8 irons were not giving me the distance so I switched them with

graphite in regular shafts. I had them bent also 1 deg flat. Without the flatter lie,

I tend to hook the ball.

These irons are very easy to hit high and straight. I am quite satisfied overall and

they will stay in my bag for a long time. The swing weight is just right. They have some

offset but it is not excessive. The head size looks about right size, not too big or small.

I do not take deep divots and still these irons are giving me very good high trajectory.

The distance is quite predictable & consistent. For best results with these irons, focus

on a smooth swing, not hard swing.

    • I knew the Delta variant would be taking over most of the COVID cases when it was first identified.  So I kept on wearing a mask even after I got vaccinated.  Some people asked me why I was wearing a mask even after being fully vaccinated. I told them that vaccine is not 100% guarantee and there were too many people that are not vaccinated and walking around without a mask. Now, while the Lambda variant has not taken roots here yet, that is another variant that may cause another surge. 
    • Par 73 rated 70.7/120, 6425 yards.  Shot a 102.  Back was a little tight which i believe caused me to turn the ball right to left more than normal which contributed to at least 2 of my 4 penalty strokes with driver.  Also led to a bunch of missed greens on the left.  When driver cooperated, i hit some good ones. Putting was ok as i drained a 25 footer...for an 8.🥴
    • Last night I had a 21 mile bike ride and, for the first time in a decade, I had a bike ride that wasn't basically flat and for which I didn't have to get off the bike to walk up a hill (I had to walk across one intersection because I haven't quite figured out how to stay on a bike at a red light and I didn't get on fast enough where I felt I would make it across).  There are still some routes in my area that I'm building up to. This morning, barbell exercises.  I evidently reduced my bench press from my last post?   Anyway, 3x8x115 lbs for squats (will increase to 125 lbs next time), 2x4x205 for deadlift (my goal is to build to an iteration of 1x6 before increasing weight), and 3x6x125 bench press (goal of 3x8x125 before increasing to 135). This morning's weigh-in (pre-exercise, also pre-eating today) was 159.5 lbs, down from 170 lbs mid-June.  Last two rounds of golf averaged 208 with driver despite some less-than-stellar pokes being averaged into there.  Weight and golf scores down, driving distance up, I need to write that next to the squat rack for next time I ask myself if I really want to do that lift today.
