What do you make of these minute cracks on the surface of a new Razr X driver?

8 posts in this topic

Purchased secondhand but unused Razr X driver. After one session on the range I noticed these minute hairline cracks. I took the club into the pro shop and was told it was only cracks on the "finish" of the driver head. The finish will eventually wear off - I'm not sure if this is at all true. My well used Cobra S9 driver (also in black) has a ton of pitt marks etc from use, but nothing resembling the cracks on the Razr X. Does anyone have any insight/experience with this? Many thanks.

A better photo to show everyone what I'm talking about.

I heard back from a Callaway rep who confirms this is a defect and should not happen. Will follow up now with CS.

Whatever the outer coating is(clear coat?) has cracked from impact with the ball. It's not the metal that has cracked. The black paint on the RBZ 3 wood I had did that. Purely cosmetic, but...

Purely assumption on my part with your club but I'd have the manufacturer in on it just in case.

Bingo.  I have the same exact results on my RBZ 3W.

I don't know much about Driver construction, but the clear coat seems like a strange idea. After one session at the range I get 3-4 noticeable cracks, imagine what it would look like after 6 months!

Callaway is looking at it now.

Bud, it is normal as we have seen it occur with other OEM clubs as mentioned in this thread. When people buy golf clubs, and you hit a ball roughly 100mph +/-... Why do people think that the club will show no marking?

When you play basketball with a ball on an outdoor court... It gets scuffs on it... Are you sending it back to Wilson?

Or when a bat gets a knick in it from taking batting practice... Are you sending it back to Easton?
