Callaway XR Hybrid
Built For Outrageous Speed!
For Callaway’s new XR Hybrids, they changed their whole approach to make a hybrid that’s easier to hit and longer. From the ground up, Callaway engineers developed a completely new Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup that increases ball speed for much greater distance and forgiveness.
Increased Ball Speed For Greater Distance
The next generation of Callaway’s Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup increases ball speed all across the face so you get distance and forgiveness at every impact location, even on off center hits.
Higher MOI and Lower CG in a Hybrid Engineers have completely redesigned the head shape to reposition weight. This creates even more forgiveness and a CG that’s 46% lower than X2 Hot.
More MOI and Ball Speed The re-engineered Internal Standing Wave is the ultimate team player. It’s a refined way to increase MOI and still give the face cup the freedom to flex for more ball speed.
Callaway XR Hybrid Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The XR is sure one good looking hybrid, The clean, flat-black head, and Chevron alignment aid make this hybrid simple, yet effective looking. Sitting slightly closed, and with a slightly larger head, the XR has more offset compared to the Pro Version. Callaway claims that this head has a CG that is 46% lower than the X2 Hot version.
Who's It For?
The XR should meet the needs of a very large group of players that are looking for a hybrid that produces very good length, solid feel and is easy to elevate.
After finding a nice surprise with the XR Fairway Wood, I was excited to see what the hybrid would do for me. Again, I saw great results from the XR hybrid in distance, ball flight and feel. It did not sit as upright in my hands as the Pro version did, and something that baffled me was the huge difference in ball flight and spin compared to the Pro version. I did, however, see too much draw bias from the XR for my liking, but this is a positive for the majority of the players out there. There is just something about the XR hybrids and woods that have me scratching my head.
