Callaway X Hot Clubs

12 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm new here and pretty new to club and I'm looking for some advice and expertise from you guys as I'm totally no idea what a good deal is for clubs.

I'm looking to buy the following and would like to know what I should expect to pay for such a set.

Callaway X Hot Driver

Callaway X Hot 3 Wood

Callaway X Hot 3 iron Hybrid

Callaway X Hot irons 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, SW & LW

How much would I be expecting to pay?

Also would you say the Callaway X Hot LW is a better wedge than the Callaway Forged copper wedge?

Thanks in advance for your help and advice

Keith

Thanks I will do but what would you say is a good price?

Would £829 for the lot sound ok to you?

Do your research and shop around as the X-hot Driver and FW have dropped in price.

I've been looking around for a good few days now and have had a lot if different quotes that's why I'm asking what you guys would expect to pay for them now.

Would you say £829 for the lot is good?

If that's about $1,300 US, it sounds reasonable.

Yes it is pretty much bang on $1300 US when you convert it. Its the cheapest I found them on the internet in the UK, It's went from £933 all the way down to £829 so maybe that is the best I'm going to get was just checking in case you guys knew of something I didn't.

Didn't want to buy them then find out I could've got them for sub £800 if I'd only asked the experts.

Cheers Mr. Desmond I think I'll just go with that website and buy them

I'm not sure of your playing background. Are you new to golf this season, or just starting to play regularly after an introduction in previous years?

If you are just starting, have you had any lessons? Learning the basics can help most people improve quickly in golf.

Do you own any clubs right now? If so, what kind are they (model and shaft flex).

If you are going to get the Callaway XHot group or any other clubs, be sure you hit them first before you buy them. Have a local fitter do a static fitting to see if you need any tweaks to the clubs such as longer or shorter shafts, change to lie angle, or thicker grips.

Wedges: The best wedge is the one that feels best for you. Some golfers like the higher wedges (G, S and L) that come with an iron set. Others like the specialty wedges (ones not directly connected to iron set).

You asked about price, but I also agree with WUTiger.

I hope you've demoed them and were fit somewhere at a green grass or retail account before going to the web to find them.

Also, make certain they are authentic Callaway - lots of fakes going around - make certain the retailer is an authorized Callaway Dealer.

As to wedges, the XHots run strong to loft, so I'd seriously consider buying the gap wedge in that set (49 degrees of loft) and then a 56. I'd probably avoid the XHot Wedge as it may be a bit bulky. I'm not a big fan of the Callaway Forged - but I'd probably opt for the 56-11 - if you want Callaway set. The Callaway Forged will be more precise and direct in feel. Playing over there, my guess is you do a lot of bump and runs so a 60 LW is not mandatory. It depends on your level of skill.

Callaway is a good brand, so they aren't cheap. You get what you pay for. However I absolutely LOVE my irons. Dropped 5 strokes immediately. Getting the driver soon.

I have the x hot driver, 3w, 3h, 4h, and 5h and love them all.  I don't have to swing hard to get good distance.  I'd recommend these clubs.

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
