Hey everyone – thanks for stopping by, we’ve got some older news to share with you – the details on the Callaway XR driver line. We realized after already taking these drivers out and testing them out that we hadn’t even posted the details on them!
We’ll get to the details shortly, but we wanted to get to our initial feedback on the clubs themselves. The driver feels incredibly solid and makes a great sound off the face, not dull like the FT3 model, but more like a driver should sound. We were quite pleasantly surprised as to the distance this driver produced, despite us constantly fighting our post-winter hook. We were particular impressed with the low spin and roll we got after landing. On average we noticed nearly a 10 yard boost on the range. The driver responded well, when we amped up the speed, and could easily handle a smoother tempo. We tested the Pro model set to 9.5 with a Stiff shaft. We’d definitely recommend checking this driver out if you haven’t already.
These new models by Callaway, features a 460CC, all-titanium Speed Step Crown that is specifically designed for aerodynamics, efficiency – and is said to improve swing speed. This driver features the R-Moto technology face design – that somehow combines two magical and elusive ingredients of forgiveness and low spin together in a driver. This new tech makes the face 10% lighter and the sweet spot 16% larger than the X2. Of course, the Opti-Fit hosel system is built in and can change the loft and lie angle of the driver. Shaft comes stock with the Project X LZ in a variety of flexes.
Callaway is also launching a XR Pro model, which is 440cc’s, and is made of a lighter carbon-fibre. It helped Callaway lower the center of gravity by 53 percent and decrease spin by 300 rpm compared to last season’s X2 Hot Pro driver. This version of the driver was recently released into stores near you.
This driver was released in February, and is in shops now waiting for your to test. We highly recommend it.
