Callaway XJ Junior Sets - small in size, big in technology
August 3, 2010
The wizard-like shot making of Phil Mickelson can make you wonder if he has some sort of 'secret weapon', equipment that maybe isn't available to us ordinary golfers. Wrong.
'Lefty' pulls off those towering flop-shots and amazing bananas round trees using Callaway X Series clubs, and now Callaway has put some of those same innovative technological advancements from the adult clubs into a range tailored for kids. It's the ultimate set for junior golfers looking to jump-start their golfing life.
The XJ Series Clubs provide the perfect combination of performance and forgiveness, so junior golfers can play confidently and aggressively. Kids can play with golf clubs designed specifically for them and their unique swing needs.
With four sets, 5-8 years old for boys and girls and 9-12 years old for boys and girls, every child from 41 inches up to 59 inches tall can build a swing with clubs that will help their game and protect their growing body.
The 8-piece XJ Junior Set for 9-12 year olds, or 50-59 inches tall, offers:
• 360cc All-titanium Driver (16° - 40 inches): a smaller version of the X460 Driver, made of titanium and featuring the consistent alignment sole and large effective hitting area for outstanding forgiveness and longer drives
• Stainless Steel Fairway Wood (24°): with X-Sole Design for consistent alignment and perimeter weighting to increase the Moment of Inertia and help get the ball in the air quickly and easily
• Stainless Steel 5-, 7- and 9-Irons, as well as a Sand Wedge: cavity-back irons with Precision Notch Weighting for extra forgiveness and stability and a 56-degree wedge with Mack Daddy Junior Grooves for shot-stopping control
• XJ Odyssey 2-Ball Putter (30 inches): the 2-Ball alignment system makes lining up putts easier so more putts find their way into the hole
• Lightweight Stand Bag: with a 3-way triangular top, seven zippered pockets, a double strap, an MP3 player holder and a rain hood
The 7-piece XJ Junior Set for kids 5-8 years old, or between 41–50 inches tall, features all the same technology and comes with the following:
• 320cc aluminium Driver (18° - 34 inches)
• Stainless Steel Fairway Wood (27°)
• Stainless Steel #5 Hybrid (36° - picture right): the “go-to” club that can be hit from almost anywhere on the course, extremely versatile!
• Stainless Steel 9-Iron and Sand Wedge
• XJ Odyssey 2-Ball Putter (25 inches)
• Lightweight Stand Bag
Graphite shafts are fitted as standard, and the sets come in both right- and left-handed versions. Good news for budding Leftys...
Even better news is that all this technology comes at a very reasonable price, with an RRP of just £169 for the 5-8 year old sets and £219 for the 9-12 year old sets.
