Review: Callaway RAZR X Irons

Written by  on Tuesday, 26 April 2011

Callaway have aimed to offer the best of both worlds with their RAZR X golf irons, a set of clubs that boast the distance and forgiveness of a wide-sole iron combined with the versatile playability of a thin-sole iron. We review the Callaway RAZR X irons here.

In these irons Callaway has lowered the centre of gravity without widening the sole, the shape of which offers better turf interaction. It all adds up to an iron that fires on all cylinders to get you to the green, working from all areas of the golf course.

If you have a higher handicap and require more forgiveness from your iron then the RAZR X irons could be exactly what you are looking for. They have been designed specifically with amateur golfers in mind for game improvement.

You can feel the difference in weight when holding any club. This is because of the weighted area at the back of the clubhead working with an undercut cavity, resulting in a lower centre of gravity. The design repositions the sweet spot, making it larger for maximum impact and ball speed at no cost of accuracy.

Working the irons on different areas of the course and you'll see how this new design works completely in your favour. Whether on the fairway or the rough, the sole will help compensate for a difficult lie and allow you to achieve more successful shots.

This new design allows you to hit the ball with all the precision of a wider sole, giving you the forgiveness you need to avoid slicing, but does not sacrifice power and speed. Your shots will fly long and true so you'll be making great progress in the game while honing your skills at the same time.

Due to the lower centre of gravity you will be afforded a fair amount of loft, which may be off putting at first. But once you get used to this, it shouldn't lose you any distance.

The clubs have a draw bias as a result of its offset clubhead, which may grant even more distance. You should find your shots improving dramatically, which will lead to shorter putts and ultimately lower scores.

The RAZR X irons look good and feel better with a nice, solid impact. Amateur players looking for a more forgivable club are sure to benefit from it. The accuracy is particularly notable and you'll find that even wider shots don't lose too much in the way of distance. Since these clubs are targeted at higher handicaps though, more experienced players may prefer to try the RAZR X Tour irons or Forged Irons, which have been designed more with their abilities in mind. But if your game needs improvement, this dependable club is an essential addition to your collection.
