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.

    • Home Depot is requiring all working personnel including contractors to wear a mask.   They are also asking all visitors to wear a mask.  
    • 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.
