GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 33 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS CALLAWAY STEELHEAD XR FAIRWAY WOODS The original Steelhead was one of the most popular fairway woods of all time because of its uniquely beautiful shape and innovative Hawkeye Sole. With the new Steelhead XR fairway wood, Callaway has improved that iconic shape. They’ve made the head more forgiving making it easy to launch. Engineers have refined the sole to make it even more versatile and playable than the original Steelhead fairway. And the company super-charged it with modern, power-producing technologies to promote more distance both off the turf and from the tee. Steelhead XR construction combines a steel face and body with a J-36 carbon crown, which weighs just 6 grams. The weight saved by the crown allows engineers to distribute more weight in strategic locations within the head to position the CG lower and more forward. This makes the Steelhead XR easy to launch with low spin. The modern Hawkeye Sole has been re-contoured to increase versatility by reducing friction with the turf to promote clean, square contact more often—even from tall grass. Next-generation Hyper Speed Face Cup technology incorporates an extremely thin and flexible boundary area. This encourages faster ball speed across a larger area of the face for long distance—even on mis- hits. Callaway’s proven Speed Step technology, developed from a unique collaboration with aerospace experts, improves the head’s aerodynamics to promote faster head speed for more distance. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au A wide variety of lofts are available including 3+wood (13.5°), 3-wood (15°), 4+wood (16°), 5-wood (18°), 7-wood (21°), 9-wood (24°) and Heavenwood (20.5°).
