Callaway Golf 2021 REVA Complete Golf Set Review

One of the coolest things about the Callaway Reva golf club set for women is that it was made by women, for women. The set was an initiative by some of the women who actually work at Callaway. The architecture of the Callaway Reva clubs is built from the basis of their Big Bertha line.

But these are not Big Bertha’s. Instead, the Callaway Reva clubs are a culmination of extensive research into the game of the average women, and input from hundreds of female golf authorities which has resulted in a premium quality club set optimized for the way that women play the game with forgiving lofts, light flexible shafts, low center of gravity and large forgiving faces.

So we wanted to take a firsthand look at the Callaway Reva clubs to see what they were all about and if they delivered on quality and performance. Take a look at what we found.

 

First Impressions

The first thing that we (and anyone else would) noticed about the Callaway Reva clubs was that they were very lightweight and comfortable. 

This is an exciting set of clubs and when you heard the name Callaway, you are always going to be expecting class.

The weight that they do bare is very evenly-distributed.

The first club we took out of the bag was the driver, it has 13.5 degrees of loft which is perfect for average swing speeds in Ladies, and it will allow you to get the ball in the air and straight without too much difficulty.

Next Thing I notice was how large and forgiving the heads were on the cavity back irons. the irons scream game improvement in a set that oozes quality.

The few practice swings we took excited us very much. The swings felt fluid and light. We couldn’t wait to get these clubs out on the course.

 

 

Set Composition (8 Piece Version)

 

  • Driver
  • 5 wood – set to 23 degrees of loft
  • 5 Hybrid
  • 7 Iron
  • 9 Iron
  • Sand Wedge
  • Putter

 

Set Composition (11 Piece Version)

Please note that the features contained in the following set breakdown are also present in the 8-piece version.

 

Driver 

This is a 12.5 or 13.5 degree driver, depending on what size of clubs you go for.

The head is the legal limit of 460cc and the screw weight, keeps the center of gravity low and in the back. You are going to have no problem getting an impressive launch angle off the tee with these clubs and the club is also light to generate and impressive club head speed and get good distances consistently while hitting the fairways too. 

The club is very effective for getting far down the fairway and hitting the Fairways in regulation more often.

The drive is premium quality and one of the best clubs in the bag for sure.

 

 

3 Wood

 

The 11-piece set comes with a 3 wood instead of a 5 and is set to 20 degrees of loft. The club is easy to get in the air off the deck or even off the tee on shorter holes. 

Its got the same light, low weighting for good launch angles and forgiveness.

 

5 Hybrid

The 5 hybrid in is set to 27 degrees of loft (as is the 5H in the 8-piece set). The perfect club for when you do veer to the left or right and have to play out of a lie in the rough.

 The dynamic head of the hybrid can easily cut through the longer grass and give you an excellent stroke even when the lie isn’t so favourable.

 

6 Hybrid

You also get a 6 hybrid set to 30 degrees of loft, the club is great for approach shots where you want to get the ball to land on the green and stop pretty quickly.

The club is lovely to hit and highly accurate.

 

 

7 Iron

When you get closer to the green, you can start pin hunting with these large headed, cavity back irons that have a low centre of gravity and are easy to get in the air, consistently.

The 7 iron is set to 33 degrees of loft and they are not so game improvement that you cant get a little spin and workability on them if you are a better player.

 

8 Iron

 

The 8 iron is set to 38 degrees, the irons are as good as any on the market and you are getting you moneys worth with the set.

 

9 Iron

 

The 9 iron is set to 42 degrees, one of our go to clubs in the bag. 

Having played with 9 irons I couldn’t hit consistently in the past, this club is a relief more than anything with its consistent performance.

 

Pitching Wedge

 

The 11-piece version comes with an additional pitching wedge that helps with the really tough lies and is set to 48 degrees loft.

Its easy to get the ball into the clouds with this one, even with slower swing speeds.

 

Sand Wedge

The sand wedge is set to 56 degrees.

This is one reason why we favor the 11 piece set. Its very hard to play a full round without a sand wedge. Unless you want to buy a Wilson sand wedge for $30 to complete the 8 piece set.

 

Putter

The innovative putter helps improve tempo and keeps your stroke more consistent on follow-through.

 

Club Composition

 

Both versions of the Callaway Reva complete club set come with graphite shafts. The driver has a carbon fiber crown and Callaway’s innovative Flash Face design. The stock shaft is a Callaway RCH and comes fitted with Lamkin ST soft grips.

The fairway woods also feature a carbon crown which helps keep the head weight down and minimizes ball speed loss on strikes. You also get Lamkin grips on the fairway woods.

The hybrids feature Tungsten weighting to help minimize draw and fade. The irons also feature the Flash Face technology but with added urethane microspheres to dampen unwanted vibration.

 

Set Options

Of course, you can choose between a more basic 8-piece set (including bag) and the complete 11-piece set (also including bag).

Both versions are available in right and left-hand orientations.

Both are available in attractive black or blue color schemes and both can be fitted to long, regular or short lengths.
