I'm Harry Arnett, the EVP of Marketing for Callaway. I've been at Callaway since July. I'm an avid golfer, have been in the industry for a while, and have been a lurker on this particular site and a big fan for quite some time. As part of introducing the new Callaway Golf Company to everyone, we spoke with the Golfwrx powers-that-be and thought it'd be a cool idea to have an official presence on the site (and others, potentially, as well). We'll be here in case there's anything that we'd like to clear up in the chatter amongst Golfwrx as well as answer any Callaway specific questions anybody might have. I'll be on here in person and you'll see an official Callaway username pop up here too.

We know this is really unconventional and our goal here is just give you guys some access to our company, our products, and our coming attractions...We're trying to do things differently, obviously, and we believe that being available and a part of the community of people that are most passionate about our game is necessary and critical. We'll see how it goes. If it's lame, we'll stop!

Looking forward to it.

Harry

What will be the "official" date of when you will be able to release all info/pics for the 2013 for both Cally and Odyssey?

Some things I think we'll be ready to share in November.

Welcome Harry and Chad!! Welcome to WRX!! This is outstanding!! Welcome to the board!!

Can you tell us anything about the new forged cavity back iron offering to be released in 2013??

Will they be similar for a combo set with the new X Prototype Utility irons??
[/quote]
Hold that question for a little while and we can answer (or will get our iron team on here) all your iron questions.
[/quote]

Sweet!! I've drooled over your Legacy Black forged irons for years. I so wish that they would be available here in the States. Such a gorgeous iron.

Harry and Chad welcome officially. ;)

 

Great to see your here and reaching out like this. Touch of class. Look forward to all the buzzz we are hearing in regards to the new lines and a new beginning. Harry I met you when you were at TMag and great to see you on board at Cally.

Very Cool. Have you seen the newest piece of hardware to Koske's office?

And we'll also be chatting with you guys from this account (my name is Chad Coleman and I'm the Social Media Manager at Callaway). Like Harry said, we're not here to police or persuade anyone - just want to get to know you guys a little better and answer any questions you might have about Callaway and where we're heading as a company.

If you're on Twitter, feel free to follow us there as well (fair warning - Harry is know to go on rants about the Braves and/or Falcons and/or Georgia Bulldogs from time to time):

Hey Cally boys,

Great to see you on the Wrx.

I'm a big fan and I think now that golf guys are running the joint, a lot of guys here are looking forward to some great stuff.

Keep us posted.
[/quote]

Appreciate it, Lefty. We definitely have a renewed focus and are ready to bring it in 2013. Great to see you guys are with us.

That is AWESOME to hear. Seriously awesome to hear. When I went from another driver to the FT-3 Tour, it's was a quantum leap in performance. Same goes with going to the FT-9 Tour and Razr Hawk Tour as well. Huge fan of your composite drivers. The FIT is no exception.

Same goes with the irons. The X Tours were SO SO soft, amazing technology in such a tiny forged clubhead. And my Diablo Forged helped me break 80 for the first time! Thx for being a part of WRX!!

I know I'm hoping for a banner year in 2013.

Welcome to the site guys! Good to see some SEC guys joining up here!

I am in the bandwagon with the others that are hoping to see the Utility Irons that Ernie had in his bag at the Open.
[/quote]

Thank you, sir. As I'm sure you know, we're bringing the X Utility to retail in early December. May have to try and do another giveaway on here before then, though. That's if we can convince the guys on Tour to spare an extra one for us - those irons are in such high demand right now that as soon as we get more in, they go straight to the guys on Tour.

I'll see what we can do!

Harry and Chad welcome to the board. Going back to your roots or should I say grassroots I think it's a great idea. Getting us insane equipment nuts passionate and invested in your brand is exactly what you should do. Kudo's for reintroducing us to a NEW Callaway company. Can't wait as I used to be all callaway back in the big bertha days. I'm now razr fit driver and an odyssey putter. Help me help you haha. GIve me no choice but to fill my bag again!

Welcome Gents. Played Callaway X 16 Pro's for several years. Loved them. I tried to like the RAZR X TOUR irons, but there was just something about them I could not adjust to coming from Mizuno irons, Will you have an upgrade to the RAZR X Tour soon?

Greetings gentlemen and welcome!

Can you please tell me the difference between the Callaway Tour Authentic X-Protos and the RAZR X MB's?

Thanks!

Sean

Sean-The only substantive difference between the two irons is cosmetic. They are essentially the same design.
