Callaway RAZR 2013

There is a all new look in the Callaway range of golf equipment, check out the latest Drivers, Fairway woods,Irons, Hybrids, Wedges and balls to hit the market in March 2013.

 The RAZR Fit Xtreme's "Speed Frame Technology" focuses on distribution of stress across the clubface, optimizing stiffness characteristics to build a more efficient transfer of energy from clubface to golf ball.
Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme Driver

The RAZR Fit Xtreme's "Speed Frame Technology" focuses on distribution of stress across the clubface, optimizing stiffness characteristics to build a more efficient transfer of energy from clubface to golf ball.

Included in the RAZR Fit Xtreme driver is Callaway's adjustable technology, OptiFit. The OptiFit hosel lets the golfer adjust face angle to open, square or closed positions. One-gram and 13-gram OptiFit weights let the golfer increase or decrease draw bias, with draw and neutral settings.

 A wider range of available lofts means that there is a wider array of settings for affecting shot-shape and trajectory (and lower lofts have less draw bias than higher lofts).  

Callaway Razr Fit Driver
The RAZR Fit driver and fairway woods all incorporate Callaway's OptiFit adjustability system, which allows golfers to change the face angle to open, square or closed positions. (This is achieved through what Callaway calls the "cog," a part of the hosel that can be rotated.) Additionally, the driver includes moveable weights (12 grams and 2 grams) in the heel and toe, which can be swapped to adjust the center of gravity location, thereby inducing a draw bias or a neutral setting.

The multimaterial clubhead of the RAZR Fit driver has a crown of Forged Composite, Callaway's carbon composite material introduced a couple years ago. Another Callaway tech in the driver head is what the company calls Streamlined Surface Technology, a method of improving the aerodynamics. These techs improve forgiveness and boost swing speed.
The Callaway RAZR Fit driver comes standard with an Aldila RIP’d NV graphite shaft of 45.5 inches.

Callaway RAZR X Black Driver
The Callaway RAZR X Black driver has a black PVD finish and a crown of Forged Composite, the lightweight material developed by Callaway in partnership with automaker Lamborghini.
Something Callaway calls "SpeedFrame Face Technology" creates, the company says, a larger sweet spot and higher ball speeds across the club face, which itself is made of titanium.

An aerodynamic design of the club head means the RAZR X Black driver creates 17-percent less drag in the downswing compared to Callaway's Diablo Octane driver, and less drag can help golfers boost swing speed..

 The 8.5- and 9.5-lofted models will have a face angle 1-degree open; the 10.5-lofted driver is square; and the 11.5 model is 1-degree closed. Stock shaft is the Fujikura Motore F8.

Callaway X Hot Driver
The X Hot driver incorporates Speed Frame Face Technology, to address not just efficient energy transfer from club to ball, but also weight savings.

The thin, all-titanium head helps create a lighter swingweight and lighter overall clubweight, while the clubface has a tighter curvature to create a look preferred by better players at address.

Something new from Callaway is the X Hot Driver's "Draw Bias Progression." What that means is that as the driver loft increases, so does the draw bias: more draw bias in higher lofts, less in lower lofts. 

The X Hot driver is also adjustable through Callaway's OptiFit Hosel. Golfers can move the face angle to open, square or closed positions to affect ball flight.

The stock shaft is the Project X Velocity. The Standard Callaway X Hot Driver comes in lofts of 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 13 degrees, with a 460cc, matte-grey clubhead

Callaway RAZR X Black fairway Woods

 The RAZR X Black fairway woods extend the graphical design and attitude - remember, "hell-bent on ball speed" - of the driver.

The fairways come in 3-, 4-, 5-, 7- and 9-woods, which have lofts, respectively, of 15, 17, 19, 21 and 24 degrees.

The 3-wood is 43 inches and the 9-wood 41.5 inches. The 4-, 7- and 9-wood come in right-handed only; the 3- and 5-wood are available in both RH and LH.

The RAZR X Black fairway woods have a deep face and large footprint, with Callaway's VFT Technology that enlarges the sweet spot. They have a more traditional shaping.

Callaway RAZR Hybrids

These high-launching hybrids feature a Zero Roll Design clubface, which helps boost launch angle on shots struck off the lower part of the face. Which is where many recreational golfers miss. They also are offset to help the golfer get the club square at impact.

The game-improvement Callaway RAZR X HL hybrids come in lofts of 21 (3H), 24 (4H) and 27 (5H) degrees. Available on Feb. 17, 2012, they are introduced with a retail price of $159 each.
The RAZR X HL Hybrids can also be combined with RAZR X HL irons or RAZR X Black irons (pictured on following page) to create a blended set of hybrids and iron.

Callaway X Hot Hybrids

 Complementing the new iron sets are X Hot and X Hot Pro hybrids, which include a modern Warbird sole plate with heel and toe relief to increase versatility. The stock shaft for both models is the Project X Velocity. The X Hots come in 3, 4, 5 and 6 hybrids; the X Hot Pros, which have a smaller clubhead, come in lofts of 16, 18, 20 and 23 degrees.

X Hot Irons

In the X Hot irons, Callaway takes the "Speed Frame Face Technology" it's been using in its drivers and utilized it in irons. That tech is designed to create a better transfer of energy from clubface to golf ball, thereby boosting ball speed and distance performance.

These irons also use a Deep Undercut Cavity design to move the center of gravity lower (helping with launch) and move the "hottest" part of the clubface lower, as well.

The X Hot irons also incorporate "Feel Management Technology" in the back of the clubhead, for crisper feel and sound.
The stock shaft is the True Temper Speed Step 85 Lightweight Steel Shaft, with other options available.

X Hot Pro Irons

The X Hot Pro irons are designed with Callaway's new "J-Face Dynamics," a clubface tech intended to appeal to better golfers with its blend of power and feel.

Callaway is also using in this stainless steel iron set a groove technology, 20-degree Close Spaced V Grooves, that is normally used in forged irons. Callaway says these grooves help create more backspin - up to 1000rpm more - compared to previous generation irons.

Callaway RAZR Irons

 These two sets of stainless steel irons are designed for golfers who need help boosting launch angle and who want ball speed and forgiveness across the club face. Callaway describes the Black irons as "game-improvement" and the X HL irons as "super game-improvement."

The RAZR Black irons have the black PVD finish found in other Black X Series clubs in Callaway's 2012 lineup, a look that some might find cool but whose practical purpose is in reducing glare.
Both sets have an integrated club face/undercut cavity and the usual Callaway medallion on the back to dampen vibration and improve impact sound. The X HL irons have wider soles.

Callaway Wedges 2012

The Callaway Forged wedges are designed to present a square look at address, which is accomplished through the use of a straighter leading edge along with a higher toe. The more traditional look should appeal to golfers who like to play forged.

The wedges come in two finishes, copper or a dark chrome that Callaway describes as "smoky, muted" and which helps reduce glare. The copper finish is designed to rust over time.

The Callaway Forged wedges are forged out of 1020 Carbon Steel and employ the company's Tour CC, high-spin grooves.

The available loft/bounce combination's are 52/10, 54/11, 56/11, 58/9, 60/9 and 64/8.

The 54/11, 58/9 and 64/8 come in right-handed only; the other three are also available in Left Hand.

Callaway Golf Balls 2013

Callaway's new golf balls for 2013 include the 5-piece premium ball HEX Black Tour and the 3-piece "tour-caliber" HEX Chrome.

The Black Tour is touted for its "Spin Separation" - the difference in the amount of spin off wedges and the amount of spin off drivers. Premium performance balls are designed to spin less on drives but more on short approach shots, which leads to better distance performance with the driver but more control and green-stopping performance off wedges. According to Callaway, the HEX Black Tour balls have the largest amount of Spin Separation yet achieved in a Callaway ball.

The cover on both balls is DuraSpin, a material built for durability.

The HEX Chrome balls are aimed at golfers with moderate swing speeds and helps those golfers with distance off the tee through a low-compression core.
