New for 2011 - Callaway RAZR X hybrids
by Dominic Pedler
Available in two versions, starting with the standard head that might at first sight seem similar to Callaway’s existing popular Diablo Edge hybrids. But the special heat treatment process of the RAZR allows the face to be some 18% thinner which improves ball speed and also allows for a far better weight distribution. The RAZR X Tour model has the same face technology but emerges as a more compact version of the old FT Hybrid it replaces and delivers a more penetrating ball flight.
Both heads use a Zero Roll Design which, in practice, aims to create a more consistent launch angle irrespective of the vertical strike point. Typically, shots hit low on the face can suffer from a slightly steeper loft towards the leading edge but this has been compensated for in the new design.
