What we say...
At less than £230, the RAZR X Black represents Callaway’s foray into the lower price point end of the market, but this is far from being an afterthought. They say the Forged Composite in the crown and Distance Trajectory Weighting optimise distance – our team agreed and it scored a maximum when it came to distance, topping Scott’s yardage stats by some way and also featuring in Dave C’s top five for length. But it also behaved well when it came to dispersion. The only thing that let it down a touch was the looks; Ian was a big fan, but Pro James, Dave C and James V disliked the busy crown.
Chris also felt the head sat quite closed. In terms of forgiveness, it was up there with the easiest to hit and the huge head aided confidence at address. Perhaps not best suited to the eye of a better player, or a strong driver of the ball, but if you’re after lots of forgiveness and ease of use, this is an excellent offering.
Dave B also felt it would really benefi t those golfers who struggled to get the ball airborne – it certainly delivered a high flight which helped in the distance stakes.
