A hybrid’s combination of compact head, perimeter weighting and low CG is intended to make it easy to launch high and long shots from a variety of lies. Callaway’s Steelhead XR Hybrids take all of that to the next level. Compared to XR Hybrids, the head is longer from heel to toe and deeper from front to back, with a deep back CG. This combines to make Steelhead XR Hybrids even more forgiving and easier to launch. Likewise, the face of each Steelhead XR Hybrid is larger and incorporates next- generation Hyper Speed Face Cup technology. This allows the edges of the face to flex and release faster at impact, raising ball speed on both centre and off- centre hits to promote more distance, swing after swing. With Callaway’s Speed Step Technology, designed with the assistance of aerospace experts, airflow has been improved to promote faster clubhead speed for more distance. Just as the original Steelhead X-14 Irons were renowned for their extremely playable and versatile sole design, so are Steelhead XR Hybrids. In terms of total performance, the convergence of the Steelhead XR’s advanced technologies and shaping allow it to deliver exactly what golfers want from a hybrid: massive forgiveness, easy launch, high and long flight, and exceptional versatility and playability.
