The Callaway Strata Club Set can also be a great addition for any beginner who wants to add some good clubs to their golf arsenal. The truth is: you just can’t get any better at this price range.
I have always been passionate about golf. However, after having my focus shifted towards family and career, I can’t say I managed to get out there much over the last years. That is why, this year, after things settled a bit, I wanted to resume my hobby. That is when I realized that after years of storage, my old golf set just wouldn’t do anymore. So, I went online and started browsing and evaluating products as well as prices. I have to admit that I was a bit stunned as to the variety of options put out there by the producers. At that point, I knew that a simple beginner’s set would not be appropriate but I was also a little apprehensive in acquiring a pro, ultra-expensive golf set. After agonizing over the final decision, the solution came in the form of the Callaway Men’s Strata Ultimate Complete Golf Set, 18-Piece, which I, now, own proudly.
A 5 Star Look to Boost Your Image as a Golfer
My initial choice was based on the brand name and the extremely affordable price they were advertising. Foolish or not, the gamble paid off. My first impression about the set was that it’s stunning. Featuring a carefully designed, well-polished, sturdy look, this set, in my opinion, is a great addition to any golfer’s style. The set contains all the drivers, irons, and hybrids, I as a golfer, would ever need. Overall, the 18 pieces are quite qualitative and smartly picked to cover all the bases with great performance.
Great Overall Performance – The Set
My second opinion was after I hit the range. Perfectly crafted, with a nice weight and a perfect balance that supports performance, the clubs boosted my performance well above what I thought I could achieve after years of staying away from the game. The 18 piece Callaway- Strata ultimate set did exactly what they promised: it enabled, long, straight, accurate hits. The clubs are perfect in reaching all the sweet spots. With extremely nice grips and forgiving drivers, I was able to score well under 50 in a 9. And just like that, it was like I never left the green. I enjoyed my game so much that I couldn’t believe how time was flying.
Update for the review: After a few weeks of intensive use, I managed to break the driver, which was somewhat of a disappointment. Because I was in my 1-year-manufacturer-warranty period, I called straight to Callaway-Strata. Their customer service was beyond my expectation, and my faulty club was replaced ASAP. I can’t say I mind the incident very much considering that the customer service I was met with was flawless with a splendid reaction time.
Set Composition – A Harmonious Blend of All the Hybrids, Irons and Drivers You could Ever Need
The set consists of 18 pieces: 12 well-crafted, carefully polished clubs, 5 matching headcovers, and 1 bag.
The 12 clubs come in a perfect assortment of hybrids, faraway woods, and irons. The set also includes a driver and a putter. After trying them out, I have to say that Callaway, or in this case Strata, went out of their way to create some pretty amazing irons and faraway woods. They feature a well-polished, exquisitely designed look and drive longer, more accurate shots for an overall better performance.
In addition to that, the clubs feature an outstanding grip, which I enjoy the most. The driver is a beautiful fully titanium club, which unfortunately, I still managed to break quite easily. Callaway rose to its brand’s name and showed irreproachable customer service. They replaced it quite fast. It worked pretty well since but its sweet-spot is a little too small for my taste.
- Stylish, well-polished set.
- Lovely pick of clubs; this ultimate set includes all the clubs you need to go out there and ace your game.
- The set includes well-balanced, high-qualitative, forgiving clubs which are featured with an exquisite grip. A particular shout-out goes to the well-crafted irons and woods which are truly well performing clubs.
- These clubs are performance orientated. Just like advertised, you will be able to make longer, more accurate shots. 300+ yards won’t be a problem.
- The set is unexpectedly light in weight, hence easy to carry around the golf course.
- Customer service is impeccable, and their attitude towards the client is irreproachable.
- Best quality you can get at this price-range.
- The bag could have benefitted from more qualitative zippers; however, as a freestanding-bag, it has shown its usefulness on the course fully. Will probably replace it with something nicer, which better suits the rest of the set.
- The sweet-spot on the driver is not big enough for my taste. Maybe that is also why I broke it so easily. Even if I had it immediately replaced, I am considering buying a replacement.
- Watch out for faulty clubs. If you by any chance have the bad-luck of noticing that your set includes a faulty item, call the manufacturer. Mercifully, their customer service is outstanding.
The Callaway Men’s Strata Ultimate Complete Golf Set, 18-Piece set was like a breath of fresh air to dust-off my golf experience. Even if it is not pro-level equipment, it did its job quite fabulously. Its top performance helped me get my game back in no time. I am overall extremely pleased with the quality, the performance, and the price of this set. For sure, I would recommend it to any other amateur golfer. It can also be a great addition for any beginner who wants to add some good clubs to their golf arsenal. The truth is: you just can’t get any better at this price range. Good job Callaway-Strata! 4.5 stars.
