SNEAK-PEEK - 2013 Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme Fairway Wood

Recommended Posts

I got to see these and the Razr fit Xtreme driver in hand during a pro-am back in the beginning of October but can't remember the shaft it had for the life of me. Hands down the best looking stuff Callaway's produced since I've been around though. Super clean look from address.I feel like sticking with a black on black paint job these are going to do well with the conservative buyers since Cobra, Nike and everybody else are going with brightly colored club heads.

No speed slot? Must not be any good. :P

 

...are you really sure there isn't a speed slot? It could be hidden and filled with a proprietary, space aged, liqui-goo that promotes ________ [insert golfing or non-golfing related adjective] velocity, distance and confidence... :o

agreed wd, better than the hybrids sole-wise... I just hope they've kep the green accents just on the sole. I have the same query about the slick sole on this (as the hybrid) - is this supposed to aid turf interaction at all, or is it just slick?

Aldila Trinity is the stock offering but there are other no cost upgrades.

Don't have much info on the Trinity as of yet, but I'm told it's not a "made for" Callaway shaft and will be offered by Aldila after the PGA show.

Trinity thats the name! Haha I remembered it was from Aldila and it was the same green (which looks much darker and subdued in person than in these photos) but couldn't remember the name being that it was one I hadn't heard of before (assumed it was new)

Tell me apples, what does this look like at address, colour etc - did they put the green highlights on the top or is it a little more subdued?

Lot of criticism for Cobra's last line of clubs, and it seems lime/orange/etc are the new black...

I'm guessing the color accents are similar to the current RAZR Fit UDESIGN drivers, with similar look on the top as well.

Hope the shaft isn't junk.

I have used the Fujikura Motore F1, and it's a great shaft.

Then I tried a recent Callaway driver, that had a Motore F6 or F8 (can't recall the number at the moment), and it just seemed like a sloshy, wobbly feeling piece of junk compared to the F1.

Aldila seems to have done the same with some of their RIP takeoffs.

It's always disappointing when I see that small print writing on the supposedly high quality aftermarket shaft that says "Exclusively designed for"...(fill in brand name, Titleist, Callaway, etc...).

Its about as clean as it could get from address. Gloss black crown and black face. Reminds me of the Titleist 910 line. Think original Razrfit fairway wood except everything (face,crown,hozel etc.) is black.

Being a fit I would assume the Ferrule looks better than the hybrid?

 

Yep pretty much identical to the original Razr Fit hozel/ferrule.

Looks good....but what is Callaway selling as the difference between this version and last yrs? Faster face? weight placement? TA cogs?

 

Faster face and higher COR. Last years didn't even come close to .80/.81 like the RBZ. This one is suppose to be closer to that.

Tuna, Any idea on TA version or a double cog? anyone got pics of face topline etc...Despite my normal anti-callaway nature, I may give this one a try if it is indeed as fast as the rbz/913 line....

Harry and Chad say no to the double chog as standard as stock. Callaway will put one on if you special order it for another $40 I beliebe he said. Don't quote me on that number though as it was hazy. Somewhere between $30 to $50.

 

Lots of pics online. Mostly of the sole and face though rather then top down.
