The XR Pro is sure one good looking hybrid. Its flat-black, clean head is simple, yet effective looking. The head sits pretty square, and I would guess it has less offset when compared to the non-Pro Version. Callaway claims that this head has the lowest CG ever for a hybrid, and I believe them because my ball flight was very high!
Who’s it for?
The XR Pro version is more for the player who prefers less offset (which can lead to less of a draw bias) and a higher grade shaft. I would also suggest that those looking to land the ball softly on the green like an iron will enjoy the XR Pro.
This head was a bit of a dilemma for me. First off, the head shape is small, and with a very tall toe area tapering off quite a bit towards the heel area gave me the illusion that the club was sitting in a very upright position in my hands. And secondly, the distance was quite a bit off compared to all the other clubs that I tried. The 23-degree head certainly looked to have more loft to my eye than the stamped amount. Not once did I get a semi-penetrating shot. Based on the results, I kept thinking twice about the actual loft since every shot was super high and had too much spin. Great looks, solid feel but something just did not work for me with this one.
