The next generation of Callaway irons and hybrids for the improving golfer will be available from tomorrow at its UK stockists.

The Callaway RAZR X HL (High Loft) clubs, say the makers, have been engineered to delivery a confidence-inspiring trajectory, combined with the distance and forgiveness club golfers are demanding.

Made from cast stainless steel with the combination of a low centre of gravity and wider sole to get the ball airborne more cleanly, the iron heads feature a medallion on the back made from aluminium and thermoplastic polyurethane to enhance the feel at impact and help deliver both accuracy and increased ball speed.

For a eight-piece iron set - seven only in Europe - expect to pay £549 with steels shafts and £699 with graphite, custom-fitted at your local Callaway dealer. Irons are available in right- or left-handed from 4-SW, including attack wedge, in three flex options. ?

?Golfers looking to fill distance gaps in their game, says Callaway, can customise their set by integrating RAZR X HL hybrids - £145 each - in place of more difficult to hit longer irons. The hybrids have moderate offset with a ‘Zero Roll’ design to produce a higher launch angle and softer landing on shots hit low on the face.

Says Callaway’s Luke Williams: “When designing the RAZR X HL irons, our goal was to provide a club that would inspire confidence and make the game more enjoyable.

“The low centre of gravity, large sweet spot and wide-sole work together to help get the ball airborne and add distance.

“The hybrids were to compliment the RAZR X HL irons in, deliver distance with a high trajectory that makes it easier to land the ball softly on the green.”

Hybrids are available in 3H (21-degrees), 4H (24), 5H (27) in right- or left-handed with three graphite-shafted flex options.
