Hey Crew, Long time forum reader, first time poster, forgive me if I ramble. Excited to talk golf! 2020 is the year I decided to step outside my comfort zone. I had struggled for years with the common inner struggle of “Am I good enough to hit ‘players’ irons?”. After hitting a Callaway X Forged ‘18 7 iron at my local G.T. I was in love. The smile that hitting the middle of that club put on my face was something I had never experienced in golf. I was addicted, but they weren’t ‘meant’ for me (18 hcp at the time). After a few more visits, a few more hits, I decided if they weren’t meant for me, I had better improve, I needed these clubs in my life! 2 months in, 32 rounds down, couldn’t be happier with my decision. When I put a good swing on the ball I get good results, bad swing, bad results *BUT* I know exactly where I mishit it. As for my driver, what a story... Last year I purchased a Callaway Fusion Driver second hand. Liked it, but didn’t LOVE it. Distance was ok, sound wasn’t my jam. About half way through the season I took my honey out for her first round of golf. 3 Holes in, after assuring her “Don’t worry babe, you won’t hurt my clubs”, she tees off, something doesn’t sound right.... I inspect my driver to find a crack in the top crown. So, it sat in a closet for the rest of the year, assuming there was nothing Callaway would do, as I purchased it second hand. Before throwing it out this year I decided, what’s the harm in asking them. I called Callaway customer service, was completely honest about where I purchased it and what happened. They confirmed there was no warranty BUT they are happy to keep me as a customer and instructed me to pick a shaft from their stock offerings as they would send me an Epic Flash..... Jaw dropped....Stunned. This driver is mind blowing, I have never had confidence off the tee with Driver. I’m consistently 10-20 yds further and much more accurate. (See photo below, My drive on a 310 yd Par 4 - Dogleg Left - Bunker on Right side of green. Thread the needle and putting for eagle!) Everyone always says “it’s not the club”. While I agree to an extent, everyone of my friends that has hit this club has gotten consistently better results than their own driver. A few stating they hit their longest drive ever with it. A few searching for deals to purchase their own. I was so happy with Callaway’s service and product I filled out the bag with the following: Callaway Epic Flash 9 deg. Kuro Kage TiNi Silver 70g Callaway Epic Flash 5W Project X Hzrdus Smoke 70g Callaway X-Forged ‘18 3-PW KBS Tour 90 Callaway Forged 52-56 DG S300 Callaway Forged 60 DG S400 Scotty Cameron Kombi S
I am looking at buying a set of 2009 Callaway X-Forged or Razr X Forged. I played the 2007 X-Forged but since they were non-conforming, I switched to the Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity (great clubs). I have the itch to go back to the Callaway forgings due to their weight (D2) (Bridgestone are a D1). Plus, I really like the look and feel of them. The Question: The 2009 X-Forged has grooves that are spaced "normal" but the Razr X Forged has the tightly spaced conforming grooves. Are the tighter grooves good or bad? (I've heard they don't change much) Additionally, does anyone know if the 2009 X-Forged (Version 2 on USGA Conforming Database) from Callaway have conforming grooves. The USGA database says additional testing required (ATR). If you have any input on how tighter grooves play it would be appreciated. I remember the conversations about it back in the day but I can't seem to find anything about it now. I'm a 5 handicap FYI. Thanks!
