Designed by Roger Cleveland, the new Callaway Razr X Muscleback Irons are a design that will surely stand the test of time. These irons are formerly known as the X-Forged Prototypes, and Callaway decided to not change the design one bit. The only difference between the X-Prototypes and the Razr X musclebacks is the Razr X logo and that is fine by me! From address, these musclebacks set up prefectly. They feature a thin topline and sole and a squared off toe that frames the ball wonderfully. The thin soles with a moderate leading edge grind glide through the turf effortlessly making them very versatile from a wide variety of turf conditions. Besides being extremely playable, perhaps the best thing about the Razr X muscleback irons is the feel. I have hit some of the best forgings from Japan and these irons are right up there in terms of feel and even slight miss-hits feel buttery smooth. Rifle Project X iron shats come stock in the Razr X musclebacks and the set is available in both right and left hand.

If you want the ultimate performance iron designed to take your game to the next level, definitely check out the new Callaway RAZR X Irons. The new RAZR X Irons are designed for the average golfer who wants a club that is forgiving and long without sacrificing playability and looks. The RAZR X Iron is the first iron of its kind that will encompass all of these attributes. Callaway’s RAZR technology is a breakthrough in iron design. This club delivers distance and accuracy while still maintaining a good look from address as well as moderate sole width for better turf interaction. The patented RAZR Technology shifts the center of gravity 12% lower and 15% deeper in the clubhead for more shot-making power and increased forgiveness on off-center strikes. The famed VFT Power System is used in the RAZR X to maximize ball speed by precisely positioning the center of gravity for each individual iron. We have already taken quite a few pre-orders for this iron set and it is not hard to see why. The clubs look great from all angles and they are loaded with technology to improve your iron game. Golf Digest awarded the RAZR X Irons a Gold Medal in this year’s Hot List and we have also seen this club in play on all professional tours.
Last fall it was the Diablo Octane Driver and this spring it will be the new RAZR X Forged Irons that will make serious waves throughout the golf industry. The new RAZR X Forged Irons are the latest forged offering from Callaway and they will replace the tired Forged X-Prototypes that achieved cult status amongst better players over the last few years. Although I am not crazy about the “RAZR” name, from a technology and aesthetic standpoint the RAZR X Forged irons are nothing short of amazing. From the thin topline to the higher heel and squared-off toe, these irons set up beautifully. A narrow sole with a sharp leading edge and a shortened blade length makes this iron extremely versatile from a wide variety of turf conditions. As far as feel is concerned, the RAZR X over delivers thanks in large part to the premium 1020 carbon steel and Callaway’s patented Triple Net Forging process which helps to ensure the tightest of tolerances which cannot be achieved through the standard forging process. In an effort to combat the new groove rule, the RAZR X features Callaway’s Tour CC Grooves which maximize spin by tightly spacing up to 30% more conforming grooves. The RAZR X Forged irons are stocked with Rifle Project X steel shafts, however more custom shafts options are available through Callaway. So far, this is the iron we are the most excited for this season. It is already being heavily played on the PGA Tour and it was recently awarded a Gold Medal in Golf Digest’s 2011 Hot List.
