Strata Ultimate Men's 18-Piece Set
Great Beginner Set
This set is great for beginners given the price range. The driver is very lightweight, and has a very forgiving sweet spot. The fairway woods and hybrids are decent, although the hybrids take some getting used to. The irons have very sturdy steel shafts and good heft. The wedges and putter are also decent. The grips on all the clubs are excellent, even for those with sweaty hands.
Overall, these clubs make a decent buy for someone who is just starting out, or doesn't play often.

Nice complete set
I only hope my game can catch up! Spring comes late in northern Vermont, I'm trying to make the best of it. Each club in this set does exactly what I expect it to. Nice value, nice set.

Head of 9 iron flew off during play. Club was used less than 15 swings. Twice at driving range, once on golf course. Club was never abused or mishandled in any fashion.

Black and White Bag will discolor
I am surprised that Callaway went with a black and white bag for the Men's Strata Ultimate Set. The white will discolor easily.
A solid black bag would be great!
The website does not show any pictures of the headcovers, probably because they are also white.
The other Men's Strata Sets do not have white on the bags.

I just got my clubs from Golfsmith today and I love them. I have been out of golfing for about 10 years and don't want to spend thousands of dollars that are required to go with an expensive set. These clubs are comparable to high end golf clubs and I'm very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend them for anybody that's looking for great clubs at a wonderful price. Thanks Callaway

Bought these for my father for his birthday. He loves them! He lost his 2 years back in a house fire and had yet to replace them. He said he loves everything about them. From the look to the balance, he cannot say enough about these clubs.

Good clubs for the money
I love the driver, woods, hybrids and putter, but am not so fond of the irons as they seem to have a steeper angle (not loft the ball as high) as my old irons did. They seem to be one number off of my old clubs, so a 7 old club is a 8 in the new set. I am now starting to get used to that and they are working fine there was a just a transition time where I was hitting a lot of balls long!

Tried the clubs out
I tried the clubs out right out of the box. The graphite shaft on one of the woods (3-wood) splintered after a few hits. Putter came out of the box with a small indentation - not a big deal since it doesn't affect game play. The bag is of mediocre quality. Overall, the package is good value but not ideal.
