X-Hot is 13 yards longer
Last updated: 21st February 2013
Callaway's newest driver, the X-Hot, has been hitting the ball some 13 yards further than any of this iconic clubmakers' previous drivers.
This claim, Callaway are saying, is based on the average results from tests that compare the X-Hot with their RAZR X Black driver.
The Hot-X incorporates some of Callaway's best, established technology with an exciting new feature - 'Draw Bias Progression'.
What this means is that along with it's respected 'Speed Frame Face Technology' and 'Optifit Hosel', it's new 'Draw Bias Progression' ensures that as the driver's loft increases, so does its draw bias which in short, 'gives you more draw bias in higher lofts, but less bias in lower lofts".
To remind our readers of what Callaway's established Speed Frame Face technology is all about, we repeat that its thin, all-titanium head helps create a lighter swing-weight and lighter overall club-weight which addresses both efficient energy transfer from club to ball, but also brings with it weight savings.
Also the actual clubface has a tighter curvature to create a better look of the kind preferred by better players at address.
The X Hot driver is also adjustable through Callaway's OptiFit Hosel which has been giving golfers the option of moving the face angle to open, square or closed positions in order to provide the best ball flight possible
The standard shaft is the Project X Velocity and the standard Callaway X Hot Driver comes in lofts of 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 13 degrees, with a 460cc, matte-grey clubhead.
Its MSRP is $299 and it has been available in the UK since January.
A Pro model version of the X-hot driver, however, has only just started arriving in the shops.
The Pro X-Hot driver, which also has a MSRP of $299, has a slightly smaller clubhead (440cc), more open face angles than the Standard model and comes in lofts of 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees.
