The Callaway Razr Hawk range has impressed since its launch at the end of last year and the fairway wood certainly didn’t disappoint our panel of testers either.
Pro Stuart, Michael and David all loved the way it sat at address as well as the compact head size – although Alan would have preferred an alignment aid.
In performance terms it excelled, being among the longest for all four testers. David awarded it top marks across the board, saying it had everything a decent player would be looking for.
Stuart particularly liked the versatility because the face wasn’t too shallow or too deep and Michael, who likes to draw the ball, said the square face at address made him extremely confident over the ball. Alan was the only player who didn’t get on as well with it, preferring the Diablo Octane Black in the Callaway range.
This is Callaway’s newest fairway wood and it features the new forged composite the company has developed with supercar giants Lamborghini. The composite material has been designed to be stronger and lighter than titanium. It has exactly the same effect as it does on the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, making it lighter overall so that the designers can move the weight lower. Callaway have used this technology to lower the centre of gravity in the clubhead to give a higher initial launch for longer, straighter drives. The Razr Hawk fairway woods also feature the Variable Face Thickness seen in the driver to deliver more forgiveness for game-improvers but it is still small and versatile enough for better players to use.
