[b]Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Look forward to the special suprise shortly. The Hex tour just doesnt feel as good as the old ball. It just feels different in a negative way for me. [/b]

[b]Again, thanks for taking some of your marketing time to be on this site answering questions and taking our feedback.[/b]

[b]I have a funny feeling Calloway is changing many things, looking at the market in different ways and trying to be the best it can be[/b]

[b]Good luck[/b]

Harry- first of all welcome to our great community! I was all callaway at one point up until about 2 years ago, then so many iron sets started coming out and some with such ridiculous names . I loved it when there was x20 was sgi x20 tour was gi and then a blade and a forged players cb. Any chance next years line is not so muddled? Please don't take this as a knock on callaway I love the equipment and please don't change the hex black it is outstanding! Thanks

Harry and Chad

Quick golf ball question. I have played Calloway balls since your introduction Rule 35 blue and red. Your latest ball just doesnt work for me. I had to go to the Pro V1x and Penta 5. Any plans on releasing a new version? I believe I read on this site that Phil was using an i ball at the PGA. What are your plans for this segment of the business? One other big guy is going all in on their new ball this year?

Thanks for thinking different

Goooal (by the way, I'm a big Andres Cantor fan. He's the Gus Johnson of Univision. But I digress), depending on what your issue with Hex Black Tour is, we do in fact have something a little special up our sleeves for 2013. We still think Hex Black Tour is the best ball in golf, but we have something that's kind of niche that we think will really thrill certain players...

You might have answered this earlier Harry, but will there be a matte black finish option for the Razr Fit Xtreme whether it be standard in the driver or available as a Udesign option?

I just signed up but have visited your site on numerous occasions. i am a teaching Pro and Callaway Staffer. I just saw new pictures of the Callaway line up for 2013. The new forged iron looks awesome. The utility iron that Els is currently using looks good as well. Cant wait to hit them. Anyways nice to have a Callaway rep on the site to talk to.

No knock taken. I know exactly what you mean and I think I speak for Harry (I'm within earshot of his office, so I basically know everything about his life now) when I say that there will be a 0% chance of muddle with next year's line.

You guys on the board is awesomeness in a box.

Reading through what has been posted I see talk of more forged offerings coming soon to a course near me. Playing the RAZR MBs which I still can't believe are MBs. They have forgiveness. How can you make such magic even more magic? I say it's impossible.

Nothing's impossible with our R&D team, Darth. Case in point: wait until you get your hands on an X Utility...

Pretty cool you guys are on here. I hit the MB and thought it was great. Also a huge Ernie fan. Then again, who doesn't like butter?

Any chance this new social media thing will translate into some videos about behind the scenes and maybe test days, etc. I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys seeing behind the scenes, tours of facilities, and even more in depth about how things work, how you have pros testing clubs, etc, custom fittings, etc. And not just the "woa 30 yards longer lemme change that weight..." that a certain ivory colored manufacturer throws at us.

Yup, great idea - always good to see behind the scenes. I play guitar too and the boys at Fender & Gibson have been great at this for a few years.
Good shout.

Great for you guys to be on here, I've played Mizuno irons for the past ten years and never really liked Callaways line with all the plastic and graphics and names etc etc, but walked past a Callaway fitting day at our club over here in London England a few weeks ago. Could not believe the shots i was producing with the RAZR X Tours with PX flighted. I've held off pulling the trigger to see what else is coming out soon.

You need to show us the new irons very soon or I'm off to buy the new Mizuno JPX 825 Pros!!!!! I'm hoping for a cross between the RAZR X Tour and RAZR X Forged, or just the tour iron to be forged.

Callaway Harry or Chad,

I was sad when I walked into a Dicks and saw the Warbird last year reduced to a store specific exclusive (cheapo crapville) To soil the name of Warbird was heartbreaking and that person who made that decision should be shown the door. I grew up on Warbird woods and was genuinely pissed when I saw this. To take clubs that built your company and disrespect it like this just doesn't make sense. And again I say this because I care ?

With that off my chest I think the Warbird needs to come back and i mean really come back. Imagine the commercials and marketing pieces you could design. Especially with the "reintroduction" of the company. "We're Baaaaaaaack"

Wow, this is cool. Nice to see you guys here.

 

I just bought the Razr Fit driver and I couldn't be more pleased. So much more consistent than my Ping I20 that I had before. The thing is that I want a similar 3wood to replace the i20 I have right now. Right now I am playing the Razr Fit at standard with 8,5 of loft and Diamana Kai'li 70X. Any suggestions on what setup to get in the 3wood?

 

Also, I've been looking for this fitted hat that Alex Noren is using EVERYWHERE! Do you know where I can get it? Tired of the Titleist hats...

Interesting, not quite sure what to make of those, just judging by the press release they will market these as ultra premium etc. and want more money than the normal line. Really they are just standard irons that mizuno have been making for years. Really want to see their new standard range of irons will be, I think there are a lot of people in the market like me that have played the MP52, MP53 forged cavity that are not now catered for by Mizuno, it's either blade like or down to the JPX line. Tmag also could do well in this catagory if they could put out some non gimmicky irons.
