Warmed up using PW through 3 wood. Pulled driver out, hit about 15 balls st the range and….. well see photo. Guess I’m glad I got the warranty. Will be sending back.
UPDATE. Insurance policy was next to impossible to use. Called Amazon and they were a great help. The supervisor was able to understand my frustrations and able to make the return label for me. A+ for Amazon customer service.
There is a reason you don’t see the Callaway name anywhere on these clubs or bag. I wouldn’t want to have my name on them either. These clubs look great but are just poorly made and dangerous. I bought these for my 18 year old son and the first time at the range the 3 wood head flew off a full swing. This could have seriously injured someone. Needless to say these are junk and are going right back to Amazon. The Callaway Golf company should be ashamed of themselves for putting such a dangerous inferior product out on the market.
This review is for the RIGHT hand Callaway Men’t Strata Set – I’m sure there is no difference for lefties.
I’m an experienced golfer that plays with fairly high-end equipment that seems to get partially upgraded every season or two whether I plan to, or not. It’s not uncommon for me to spend $1,000-$1,400 annually on upgrading equipment.
Recently, I attended a 5 day golf clinic (all day, 5 days) more aimed at beginning golfers to work on some fundamentals since there are a couple things about my swing that I’m not happy with.One of the adult male beginners had this set of clubs he’d just purchased after using loaners on the range for about a month. I wasn’t familiar with them, and had no idea what they cost him. My assumption from just looking at them was that they were a boxed set in the $700-$900 range probably competing with the Adam’s brand. I had no idea these clubs could be had for around $200.
I was partnered up with this guy for a 9 hole scramble on the second day of camp. For kicks, I asked if I could hit his driver. I hit a very low spin 240 yard drive right down the fairway with one practice swing – this is a normal drive for me distance-wise. I was impressed – again, still not knowing the price tag.
For the rest of the round, I hit his clubs. They were fine… they really were. I thought the putter was a little light, and the woods were a little light at the club head (but honestly, they just felt like the Ping G30’s to me… hit like ’em too). I don’t think using his clubs for that round cost me a single stroke – in fact, I think I probably lost a couple strokes because all 5 of my drives were essentially straight. The irons and hybrids carried well… no issues at all. I’ve messed around with starter clubs before, and years ago (many), I burned through a few sets myself. The quality of these clubs surpasses other starter sets I’ve played.
I’m surprised that these clubs can be had for around $200. It seems to me that they’re quite the bargain at that price.

My five star rating is based on knowing this is a starter set and comparing to similar products, not higher end club sets.
This is a great bang for the buck set. I played a few rounds nearly twenty years ago (play is a strong word) and back then my clubs were old. A recent job change required me to spend some time on the course (feel sorry for me) and I needed a new set of clubs that didnât break the bank. Read a lot of reviews, talked to a lot of golfers and watched a lot of video reviews before settling on this set. Canât beat it. Donât see myself upgrading for a while.
My only gripe is the putter but I canât fault the set for that- I just prefer an older style and still use my prior one. Just a matter of personal preference.
Now, I only have myself to blame for the bad shot…
This is a great value for a beginner’s set. The irons are excellent; as well as the putter. The driver and 3 is a little weak; but I like the hybrid included. Great bag…also includes 2 head covers. I replaced the driver with an upgrade, as soon as I got it…grips are good. I don’t see too many sets in the $200 range that offer this much. If you’re just starting out and/or don’t play a whole lot of golf, this is a great value…I will be upgrading my fairway wood and adding a few more clubs, but this is a great set.
Really glad I bought these clubs. Even though I’m not a beginner, I have not played in quite sometime, much less owned my own clubs ever. Yes I read alot of reviews on this set along with the bigger sets. I chose these due to they are cheaper than the others. Although I have only played 9 holes with them so far, I did not experience any of my clubs breaking or have any other unusual damage to them, they have just a couple scuffs from my lack of experience with the game. I would recommend these to anyone! As for the fitting, at first it felt like these might be a bit short, but that was due to my improper stance which was fixed over this past weekend, so yes they do fit someone that is 5’10”.

I played golf years ago with a set of clubs I picked up at the military exchange, couldn’t keep the ball in the fairway to save my life. The ad for these clubs said they were designed to help new players hit correctly and were more forgiving than other clubs, they are. Had the best 18 of my life the first time I played with them! Made me actually enjoy playing. I would recommend them to any new player!

I am 6.1ft and these clubs were short by 2″. However, i was able to manage and did ok at an 18 hole course (my first course), while sharing the clubs with two others (considerably shorter than I am). If you can afford, get the 18 piece set instead. After the game (the ground was very wet) cleaning was a breeze. Just soak the clubs for 30 mins in a bucket with warm water and dish soap, rinse, and dry and all the mud will come right off. I bought a golf range finder but didnt need it at all. I also bought a dozen golf balls but had only 4 of mine left over since we all had bad ball slice and they were ending up in areas we could not retrieve from. Nevertheless, i ended up finding golf balls all over the full course that I could keep (left the place with 18 balls). Overall, we had fun without any of the clubs breaking.
