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.

    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
