Callaway RAZR Tour Irons Review

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Nice Construction,  Above Average Balance and Feel, Good Distance

Cons:"Same Old Same Old" on the shafts, and the new look isn't for everybody

The Bottom Line: A worthy succesor to the old "X" line, but I would've liked to have seen better shafts on a club labeled "TOUR."


As with The RAZR X Irons, getting a hold of demoes on these has not proven too easy for your's truly. FOr openers, Callaway has opened the floodgates on these and all other RAZR products, but only after a veritable lockdown thanks to some serious leakage of corporate secrets. Sadly, many clones  and pirated copies of RAZR Irons were showing up in the marketplace as far back as September, when they weren't even due for release to the general public until February 18th of this year. Hang on to your hats folks, because much more of this type of shennanigans coming out of China, and it's going to be hard to get an objective and timely review on anything. All that aside, however, and we can move onto this reviewwith eyes wide open,.
 
Balance and Fee
l--As these Irons are labeled "Tour", I figured balance and feel would be a great place to start. THese clubs feel rather nice actually, and bll/face location at impact is easily judged. The feel isn't quite as buttery as the forged version of these, but it's very li9vely, and far from dead or vague. That's also well communicated throughout the swing as far as balance goes. At address you can look down at the cleaner top line of this club vs. that of the RAZR X. That sense of clean lines, though far from svelte, thanks to the ever present fluted sole attachment on all three versions of these irons, is accompanied by a strong sense of control throughout the backswing.  The club never telegraphs where the head is, but it doesn't leave you wanting for awareness either. Definitely a solid 4 out of five star rating here.

Distance
--with these clubs is above average for these mid-level type clubs. I'd say they are just a shade longer than the "X" line of irons which they replace. I'd go as far to say that I could legitimately say the demo 6 iron offered up a solid 3 more yards than the X-24 6 iron did on the simulator. In regular field conditions the difference was negligible at best. Sometimes I wonderi f those swing simulators are just fancy bar code readers. Even so, when one considers how hot the X-24's were, the fact that these can match them and offer up just a tad more forgiveness is quite an accomplishment.

Forgiveness --on these is pretty huge. That's a Callaway trademark that hasn't always translated to the previous "X" line of clubs. I found that the long irons in this set are a lot more forgiving than the X-24 Long Irons. That's a very important thing to note if you still haven't bought into the hybrid/rescue club craze that's been going on for roughly 8 years now. If you still like your old 3 and 4 Irons, these are definitely some of the easiest to hit in this category.

Technology--is still pretty much a matter of taste. I'm not sure I really like the fluted sole attachment yet, but it does offer up some very creative bevelling of the sole of the club. If you tend to dig up divots the size of beaver pelts, these will help you cure that, without having to hit a sole as bulbous as WC Field's legendary proboscus. The shafts are still pretty much standard issue Dynamic Golds, and that would be my only real knock on these clubs. Some flited Rifles would've been a nice touch.

Overall--you get a lot of the same things Callaway Irons are noted for. You get a very large safe hitting zone, a better than average sense of feeling and balance, accompanied by a dollop of the latest techno kitsch.  Callaway fans will be very exited by these, as they are a very worthy succesor to the old "X" line of Irons. It's interesting to note that the old "Ben Hogan" division is still showing up in the improved quality control, but Callaway is definitely steering away from the old tradiditioanl staid look, and moving more towards a more modern almost edgy type of image.
