Now that the new year is here, it is a great time for 2012 golf club reviews. The major golf equipment manufacturers are coming out with drivers, fairway woods and irons they say will help us hit it longer and straighter.

Here’s an overview of some of the new clubs available this year and what you can expect from them.

2012 Golf Club Reviews RAZR Fit2012 Golf Club Reviews: Callaway RAZR Fit Clubs

Callaway is using technology on the RAZR Fit driver and fairway woods that allows you to change the ball flight by adjusting the face of the clubs into an open, square or closed position at address. Weights on the driver can be changed to promote a draw or straight tee shot.

The RAZR X Hybrid is designed to produce a higher launch angle the helps the ball land softer while increasing distance. The irons have a low center of gravity making it easier to hit the sweet spot.

The GolfWRX.com website reviews the RAZR Fit driver and gives it 4 1/2 out of five stars. The editor says Callaway delivers with a driver that combines the best combination of looks, forgiveness and distance performance.

Golf Monthly talks about the simplicity of Callaway’s adjustable weight mechanism in the video review below. The magazine says the club should match the Callaway Razr Hawk’s performance with the added benefit of adjustments.

2012 Golf Club Reviews R11S2012 Golf Club Reviews: TaylorMade R11S Clubs

TaylorMade has updated its R11S drivers and fairway woods with a new adjustable sole plate with five rather than three settings, moveable weights and the company’s Flight Control Technology. Players can hit the ball farther because the clubs are bigger, faster and more tunable, the company says.

Golf.com says the R11S driver has a bigger head than its predecessor, the R11. The club has a little larger sweet spot and will likely let golfers keep up ball speed even when they mishit a shot.

The testing team at Golf Monthly notes the added adjustments to the R11S and a louder impact sound in this video review.

Johnson Wagner used the new driver during his win at the Sony Open in Hawaii, according to GolfWRX.com.

2012 Golf Club Reviews RocketBallz2012 Golf Club Reviews: TaylorMade RocketBallz Clubs

The RocketBallz driver has built-in adjustments that allow the player to change the driver’s clubface by 3 degrees either way, and the loft by 1.5 degrees in either direction. The RBZ seems to be TaylorMade’s effort to provide a lower priced adjustable line of clubs.

The name of the clubs apparently can be traced to their testing period when engineers said they hit the ball like a rocket.

Golf Monthly says in the video below that the RocketBallz is meant to combine the adjustability of TaylorMade’s R11 series with the clubhead speed of the Burner 2.0, which the RBZ replaces.

PING’s i20 series includes a driver, fairway wood, hybrid and irons. The woods have a matte-black finish to absorb light and eliminate glare. The irons have non–glare chrome finish and black-and-silver color scheme.

The i20 driver is built for maximum distance, accuracy and workability, according to the company. The fairway wood and hybrid are meant to help the player launch the ball, even from difficult lies. The irons are forgiving, yet offer precision golf making opportunities.

GolfWRX.com says the i20 driver helps players with high swing speeds but also provides a more penetrating ball flight and less spin than PING’s G20 driver.

The folks at GolfWRX.com had a favorable impression of the i20 irons, as well.

Golf Monthly’s look at the irons below shows that the i20s have more forgiveness than the i15s even though they look like the s56 irons.

    Hi, great website you have here over golfing. I know golf is a multi-billion dollar industry, so this is a very lucrative business. My older step-brother gave me a set of golf clubs when I was younger, but I’m still not very good at it.
