Hi everybody, Donal here looking at the Razr X family of irons from Callaway. Nathan, tell
us more about these irons that are new for 2011. One of the looks like a game improvement
iron, one of them looks like a fantastic iron for better players. Just break it down for
us. We’ll start with this one. Yeah so the new Razr X iron is the culmination of a lot
of years design. What we did was we took our best selling iron line which was, X12, X14,
X20, X22 etc and we changed the name to Razr X. And really what there is, is there is three
models in this family. There is Razr X standard, there’s Razr X Tour and there is Razr X forged
which we have there. They are really designed for 3 distinct player types. Now the standard
version, Razr X, the main technology in this is Razr technology. What this does is take
the weight of the golf club and lowers it and deepens it to bring the centre of gravity
extremely low and extremely deep in the club. One thing that we found in our research is
that consumers they tend to hit the ball much lower on the face. Much lower than we ever
thought they did, almost below the leading edge of the topline. SOo we wanted to move
that centre of gravity much lower down. We wanted players to allow them to get the ball
in the air much earlier and quicker. SO the back of this club, this Razr technology, allows
us to make the sole of this club very thin but it allows the club to perform like a wide
sole iron, which most consumers or higher handicappers need. It still has that bore
through Callaway shaft? Yes this has a semi bore through here, which is a core technology
form Callaway. What is the advantage of that as it’s quite unique to Callaway. What advantage
do Callaway say this gives? The main advantage is that it saves us weight. So we can take
that weight and put it on the perimeter of the golf club where people hit it, right?
They hit it in the centre but they hit it all over the face as well. So it allows the
club to be much more forgiving than normal irons. Lots of offset on the 8-iron there
i see. Exactly. Ok, compare that now to the Razr X forged option. I mean no offset at
all. Now these are aimed at the better players and better swingers. Yes these are designed
for the lower handicappers, your Tour players. We have, with the Razr X, which is probably
for that mid to lower handicap. Someone in that 4-8-10 range. But this Razr X forged
is pretty unique. It’s a traditionally forged golf club. It is a lovely looking club. And
the cool thing about it, which you can see here, is that there is more grooves on it.
Now these grooves, which we call ‘CC’ grooves. Conforming grooves for Tour with the new rule
changes and things like that. The more grooves actually create more spin. SO it’s allowed
us to conform to the rule but still give maximum spin from all different types of lies. So
everybody, check out the Razr series of irons. Nathan, thanks very much. Well, I don’t know,
so much technology in there! I love the grooves, this is a lovely looking iron. Check them
all out on Golfbidder everybody.
