No I haven't but I did just buy a set of Razr X last year (hear there similar).  I'm in LOVE with them.  Had a custom fitting with Callaway before I bought them.  Very easy to hit and very forgiving for those missed shots.  I have probably knocked 5-9 strokes off my game this season.

I play Razr X irons and Razr X Hybrids.  They are really, really nice.  Hit them first, but they launch high and are extremely forgiving.  Aiming middle of the green with these things is GIR city.  I strongly recommend them.

See this is why it's hard to go by other people's opinions when buying gear... I personally didn't like the Razr HL.  I thought the felt kind of dead or numb on contact even in comparison to my terrible Nike Sumo2 irons which I think are incredibly dead on contact.

I'm far from an expert on club selection so take my view with a grain of salt lol.  Bottom line is go hit them and see what you think... compare them to other clubs in the same class and price point as well and go with what makes the most overall sense.


Personally I found the Cobra S3 and S3 Max to be the best clubs in that range for me.  I haven't pulled the trigger yet because my swing is still a work in progress but unless something drastically changes they will definitely be on my shortlist.

Was fitted for my HL's 6-9 w/4 wedges. Wanted graphite shafts and was very pleased with them during the fitting. The Callaway rep suggested I try the steel shafts as well. They were so so until I hit the SG-95 TT (reg) shafted HL's. What a huge difference, much much nicer than the graphite. I have to say these helped my scoring but with winter and a very sore back I am having a rough go even swnging the club.

The secret.... get fitted!

When I was looking for new irons this summer, the Razr X HL's were one of the sets I tried, along with Mizuno JPX800 and Ping G20's. It came down to the Razr X HL's and the Ping G20's. I found the G20's to be more forgiving and more consistent with distance between clubs. The HL's seem to launch the ball a little too high for me. I ended up getting custom fitted for the G20's and I love them. Whatever you decide, make sure you get fitted.

I too, went to get a set of irons because I passed down my Burner 2.0 set to my son whos taking up golf now. So it was between Ping G20, Razr HL, or TM Rocketballs. Well the Rocketballs were almost exactly like my Burners. The Ping and Callaway felt better. Both were very forgiving, and the Razrs hit the ball higher and had a better sound. Me personally went with the Callaways.

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.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
