From all the talk from people who have seen next years stuff, even in pictures, it seems this will be major turning point for Callaway in 2013..can't wait to see it, hit it, etc...you get the idea...they need a good rebound year!

Just read through the entire thread. I want to welcome you to golfwrx.com and also want to thank you for taking time out of your busy days to answer some of our questions. Still have my X-prototypes and FT9 TA driver. Best clubs I feel Callaway ever made.

If you love the FT9, I will make a bet with you that you will be buying a new Callaway driver in 2013...

 

Oh MAN! MUSIC to my ears!! I honestly haven't found a driver longer than my Razr Hawk Tour with a Speeder 652 that Logan in Customer Service fit me into. Logan is a shaft genius.

How did I miss this post when it first came out :-| must have been on holiday or something.
Awesome initiative for coming out on this site!

Are you guys going to contract Nicolas Colsaerts? Seems like he's playing alot of cally's equipment but I believe he's not under contract right now.
Being form Belgium i'm interested in whether something is being set up or was or... :)

It's a big no-no to talk about guys currently under contract with other manufacturers, even if he or she has signed a new deal with someone else. A major manufacturer got in some hot water a few years by jumping the gun on announcing a guy when he was still being paid by a competitor. So I won't be able to tell you all who our new staff players are for 2013 until later this year when the 2012 season is officially over.

Makes sence! I will be anxiously looking forwards towards the official anouncement then!

Very curious to see the new forging coming out aswell, as the X forged proto's are still one of the most beautifull if not most beautifull irons ever!
Now if only I had the game to play them!

RazrFit Extreme is GREAT looking. 440cc head that isn't stepped on. A legit looking head. And the weights are farther back on the sole--where they should have been. As long as the face is equal to everybody else's, we know it'll be longer. Much better spin profiles, like always. Really glad to have Callaway back in the game. Now, about those new putters no one is talking about....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you bring those by my office, I will personally

help you remove the stickers on the shafts. C'mon Man! Peel those things off!

Yeah I tried that on my wedges and the sticker part come off but the sticky stays for ever. Some Goo Gone and elbow grease got it off but after a

few I just said screw it, let it fall off. It's just a sticker. Nothing better that getting ribbed for an all Callaway bag by the Callaway guy himself. Only on the WRX I guess...

 

Wow! You are Charmin soft!!!

Any planned changes to Callaway wedges for 2013?

Yessir.

Really?? Wow. The 2012 Forged Wedge is awesome. Super BITE and very versatile around the greens. The 58* is just plain silly out of bunkers. Really love the grinds on them. Wow. Can't to see the new one!

To be honest I never played any Callaway equipment in the past. I have hit my friend's Razr Fit driver but that's about it. I have always played TaylorMade or Ping. I am now hitting Yonex Ezone irons. I would be curious to see what you have in line for 2013. It's always fun to try new gear especially from a company that I have never tried before. What do you suggest that wold compare to my Yonex?

This thread has been very interesting so far. Lots of interesting information from you Callaway guys, thanks.

Chad, thanks to your Razorbacks for helping Rutgers make it to the top 25 again.
[/quote]

Glad we could help you guys out. We also paid Louisiana-Monroe $400k to come to our house and beat us. Our coach is $20 million in debt. It's been a pretty promising year for the Razorbacks.

I heard there's a new "adjustable" ball for next yr. any details u can mention?

Thanks for the kind words.

An adjustable ball? How, exactly, would that even work?

Unless Harry has something crazy up his sleeve that he's not telling anyone, I don't believe we'll be releasing any kind of adjustable golf ball.

Harry / Chad and the team at Callaway

Great to have you on here....

Quick question if I may: I have the original Forged Jaws 58/12 with MD grooves and RC grind and its a brilliant club, I particularly like the flexibility of the grind for links and non links turf. In the new range i am a bit put off by the size of the flange and the flexible grinds seem to have disappeared..

Which wedges do you guys view as the closest replacement for the 58/12 MB R Grind Jaws Forged?

Thanks so much.

G

My ball seems to go left and right quite happily, although mostly I am less happy about this.. Is this what he had in mind?

How many sets of irons can we expect this year? One criticism I have of Callaway is that their line up is too crowded. You guys have 8 different irons on sale versus Ping with 4, TM with 5, Mizuno with 6, Titleist with 4 etc.
[/quote]

A big focus for us going into 2012 was...well...Focus! I think from a range plan and presentation stand point, you'll find the line to be very simple, focused, and easy to understand. Depending on the retailer (some off course guys have products from every major brand across a bunch of different price points, of course) you'll see fewer products on the wall from which to choose and they will all be easily identified and easy to understand what they do. No more "forgiver," "player, etc.

I joked about this on Twitter. There aren't any "adjustable" balls coming per se in 2013.

Welcome aboard Callawayers!

My last Callaway club was a Great Big Bertha (circa 1997?), which my son's friend broke when he was driving rocks into the woods behind the house They ran out of balls.). Teens!? Since then, I have played Ping and Titleist clubs, with one Taylormade. I recently bought a Razr Fit TA driver and I'm flat out blown away! I am really looking forward to the 2013 line, especially the 440cc driver. I'm sure there will be other goodies that will tempt me as well!

Thanks for introducing yourselves and making your presence known. It means a lot to us regular schmoes when you industry folk step out of lurker mode and put yourselves out there. Yes, there will be some trolls, but the vast majority of us have the ability to behave like gentlemen...I think? I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about your new products.

I was wondering if callaway has been looking at moving away from the forged composite in the drivers. I have opened a few and the seal on all of them has popped and it definitely turned me of to buying more callaway clubs. Other than that I love the razr mb's and in the wedge department I really am looking for more of the teardrop shape that the current wedges. I used to be a HUGE Cally fan until I hade those drivers crap out on my. I have since switched to Titleist in the driver and woods.
