The body of the Callaway RAZR XF irons is forged from carbon steel to offer the improving player responsive feel through impact. The steel face is, Callaway says, stronger than traditional stainless steel that should help generate quicker ball speed for added distance.

Callaway was given its new RAZR XF iron a black PVD finish to provide a sleek finish that will attract the mid handicapper. However, it is the forgiveness provided by the perimeter weighting that is the headline performance promise here.

Callaway RAZR XF irons will be available with a stock RAZR XF graphite shaft or with the stock steel option of True Temper's GS95 Parrallel Tip. The Callaway RARZ XF irons will hit the shelves on October 1st.

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
