Limited Edition Callaway Golf Clubs 2011

While some golf clubs went all white this season Callaway took the opposite approach. With the launch of their limited edition golf clubs they went for a look of their own.

Why did Callaway go all black instead of all white? The black finish gives golfers the same non-glare that the white clubs do but with a more durable finish that won’t show dings and scratches.

First their driver went all black. Callaway produced 5,000 limited editions of their Diablo Octane Tour Driver donned in an all black finish. Expect it to perform just like their regular Diablo Octane Driver, made with Callaway’s innovative Forged Composite lightweight carbon material. The Tour model is of course for those skilled golfers out there. The difference between the Tour model and the regular driver is it’s slightly smaller head and a design specifically created to deliver increased workability with low, penetrating trajectories.

What makes this Limited Edition driver special? Aside from the obvious all black club head; the driver also comes with a black 45 ½ inch Project X 7C7 graphite shaft and a black and white Golf Pride new decade grip.

Callaway also revealed a redesign of one of their Odyssey putters. The Odyssey PT 10 is the all black special edition all black follow up to their PT 82, which was released last October. You may recognize the PT 10 putter because it is the same design that Ernie Els used to win the South African Open back in 2010. Expected to only release 2,000 to golf retail stores. This limited edition putter was milled from 1025 carbon steel with heel toe weighting and a classic blade style. This putter is also designed for Tour advanced players.

Callaway also announced that they will be turning their popular aid assisting putter into a black model as well. Odysseys White Ice D.A.R.T Tour Black putter still has all the technical advances but now with a dark nickel finish instead of the chrome. The darker finish is supposed to create that contrast and enhance your aim.

Online Golf Shopping: Tips List

We all understand the woes of online shopping that’s what blogs like try to do. Finding you the best equipment at the best prices from the best places with reviews of the equipment. We have helped you learn how to choose the right driver, wedge, putter, shoes, etc but what about when it comes down to actually purchasing the club? Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

  • Looks for a secure checkout
  • Search out customer reviews of both the product and the online store
  • Compare the prices
  • Authorized dealer of the equipment (golf manufactures sometimes take a while to update their lists online so take them with a grain of salt)
  • If the deal looks too good to be true it probably is- most prices of golf clubs are regulated by the manufacturers and can’t be sold under a certain amount if their advertising waaaay lower it’s probably a fake.
  • Check out the privacy policy (keep your data safe) and the return policy (one thing we like about GolfClubs.com is they have a 30 day playability guarantee)
  • Look for discount code online (they all have them floating around)
  • Best thing about shopping online you can always find the club in stock somewhere!
  • Good Luck

TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 and R11 Review

TaylorMade R11 Driver Burner Superfast 2.0

TaylorMade highly anticipated series returns from both the Burner Superfast 2.0 and R11. TaylorMade took the approach of all white and didn’t look back. This design feature quickly became the popular item this season and they lead the way. The all white design change helps reduce glare. The R11 series follows the R9 by having an adjustable hosel and rotating soleplate, which allows players 48 possible settings. This club was designed to give golfers forgiveness and added distance and speed. This is a driver for a serious golfer who is looking to gain more distance from their driver. The Burner series uses a lightweight club as their selling point for this club. They did this for added distance; we would suggest this club to golfers who want to increase speed. Testers agree that accuracy was a main selling point for this club. Head over to GolfClubs.com this week and catch the r11 on the weekly specials-shipping starts today!

Callaway RAZR Hawk Driver Review

Callaway Golf Company is always trying to push the edge of technology. Their latest club the Callaway RAZR Hawk line is unprecedented. They have yet again used their Forged Composite and groundbreaking aerodynamic design to reduce energy and drag on the downswing. The innovative aerodynamics they are calling Streamlined Surface Technology.

This has allowed them to create this club that has both increased in accuracy and precision. It was a gold medal finalist in Golf Digest 2011 Hot List. Already a crowd favorite even before it hit the shelves.

Update: If you are shopping for this driver or any others this month check out GolfClubs.com they have free shipping on all golf clubs.

Nike VR Pro Driver Review

Nike created an all-new driver with the latest in technology and advanced design. The VR Pro was created with a pear shape for more weight at the optimal CG locations. With it’s new Variable Compression Channels players are able to get more ball speed and greater distance. An added feature that we particularly liked was the adjustability; with the STR8-Fit Face Angles you can shape you shots and get the best workability out of the club.  This club gave us a great feel and responsive sound. If you stop by GolfClubs.com this week you will find this as their weekly special!
