They say: Taking accuracy, distance and forgiveness to new highs, Razr X HL irons have a low centre of gravity so that lady golfers can launch shots higher, even on impacts low on the clubface, so golf balls fly consistently longer and land softer on the greens. Razr technology makes the sweet spot more accessible at lower impacts, where most golfers tend to hit the ball. Customised set options are available for golfers who want to substitute Razr X HL hybrids into their set.

I say: The first thing that strikes you about the Razr X HL irons is the enormous size of the clubheads - they look impossible to miss! They remind me a little of the old driving irons that were popular a few years ago and had the same large clubhead size that made them very easy to use. Then when you hit them you realise just how fantastic these irons are. Even the highest handicapper will love the ease with which shots get airborne. The beauty of the design is that you don't need to swing hard or fast to make them work as all the technology does that for you. The HL stands for high launch and the irons are certainly true to their name. My shots flew very high with a soft landing, a blessing for most lady players but not at the sacrifice of distance. The ball positively propelled off the clubface with a fanstastic sound. Looks-wise they are not my personal cup of tea. The pretty pattern on the back of the clubhead and at the top of the shaft added a feminine touch to what was otherwise quite a dull, dark club. I do like the fact that the designers have really thought about the detrimental effects on glare from the topline of the golf club on a sunny day by giving it a matt finish. This stops the sun reflecting up into your eyes. The irons are offset to help you hit shots straight or even better with a lovely right-to-left draw shape.
