CALLAWAY MEN’S STRATA 12 PIECE GOLF CLUB
If you are looking to purchase a new set of golf clubs now that warmer weather is upon us, you are probably trying to find the perfect set for yourself. The Callaway Men’s Strata 12 piece golf club may very well be on your list. But don’t be fooled by the name. Strata is a sub-brand of Callaway, but not actual Callaway clubs. Strata was officially licensed by a company by the name of Spalding and Top Flight, but held on to the Callaway trademark.
Things to take note of before purchasing your any golf club set are what kind of material the shafts are made out of. If the shaft if made of all iron this means a lot of metal and this will cause them to be heavier than the graphite club that Strata produces. The reason this is important is that the heavier the club, the more your arms will tire out before you reach the end of your golf game , and possibly make your game suffer at the end. Golfers tend to take their clubs as a very personal thing. There is more to consider than just what brand of clubs to buy, but also to make sure they are buying the clubs that fit them. For instance taller men or women will want longer clubs and vice versa, which is what makes this set so popular. It is very versatile. Now on to the specifics of this set.
This golf set comes with the following: the driver, which is great for teeing off because it offers more forgiveness that allows you to rip the golf ball right off the tee. The three wood is also very forgiving with its aerodynamic head shape for those high flying shots. The driver and three wood boast a graphite shaft for longer putting distance.
The hybrid, such as the 5H is also made of graphite can be a great alternative to longer irons which are heavier and is designed to give you more confidence for wider variety of shots, with less strain on your arm muscles. This club is great for replacing the more difficult long iron club, especially for those who are new to golf.
Irons & Wedges are stainless steel, which are slightly heavier than the graphite, but offer more control combined with forgiveness, after being redesigned with progressive sole width technology.
The putter in this set is more of a mallet T style alignment which was designed for more accuracy. The bag that comes with this set is very lightweight, but durable and comes with 5 extra pockets, a cooler pocket and a rainhood. Its design is that of a backpack strap. In addition to all the amenities that these clubs offer, they are also very stylish.
The Callaway Strata Golf Club set is relatively inexpensive, but durable and long lasting. Some purchasers used these clubs and were so impressed by the way they handled, that they bought this set, and retired the old set they had.
