XR 16 Fairway Wood
Bigger, Hotter, and More Forgiving.
For the XR 16 Fairway Wood, Callaway made huge leaps in their industry-leading technology and they came away with a design that’s bigger, hotter, and more forgiving with their lightest crown for even more ball speed and distance.
Bigger, More Forgiving and Easier to Hit
The head shape is bigger, and Callaway engineers built in an awesome combination of their highest MOI, low Center of Gravity, and highest COR in a fairway wood. The forgiveness from the lightest crown ever allows Callaway to move the weight where it should be. This fairway wood looks easy to hit because it IS easy hit, and it’s highly versatile with a cambered sole for the shots that you want to play. It’s longer and more playable from all lies.
Higher Ball Speed from a Hotter Face
Callaway has taken their industry-leading Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup and made it hotter and thinner for even more speed and a large sweet spot.
Even More Speed
Engineers improved the aerodynamics on this head shape to create even more head speed for you to go along with all that ball speed. By now you probably get that this fairway wood is designed for ultimate ball speed.

Callaway XR16 Fairway Wood Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
With a bigger head shape, higher MOI, lower CG, and highest COR the new XR16 fairway wood will look easy to hit because it is. The Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup is now hotter and thinner and the cambered sole makes this larger head highly versatile and playable out of all lies. And an improved aerodynamics increases head speed through impact for ultimate ball speeds.
Who's It For?
The larger more forgiving XR16 fairway woods will be a great fit for mid to higher handicap players who have issues getting the ball airborne from tighter fairway lies or deep lies in the rough. Slower swing speeds will also benefit from the very light shafts.
The XR16 fairway wood is matte black and has a larger footprint than I personally prefer at address. However, the crown graphics do a great job framing the head to appear smaller than it really is. The ball flight was high, as expected from a slightly shallower face size and lighter stock shaft. The face looked slightly closed at address and my dispersion definitely confirmed this. While this wasn’t the best fit for me, golfers with slower swing speeds should enjoy the playability from these woods and possibly gain some distance at the same time.
