Your chance to test the new Callaway Steelhead XR Fairway Wood

Published

on

Given WRXers respect for the history of golf equipment, we know you were eminently excited to see Callaway’s updated version of the Steelhead fairway wood hit the market.

Even more exciting news: Callaway is offering GolfWRX members the chance for exclusive testing of the new Steelhead XR 3+ and 4+ fairway woods.

We’re looking for 6 GolfWRX members to test the new Steelhead XR fairway woods. Each member will exclusively test either a Steelhead XR 3+ or Steelhead XR 4+ fairway wood. Shaft will be the Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK Series shaft.

Rather than replying to the associated forum post as you usually do for giveaways/testing, you’ll need to fill out the short application survey here.  The application period will end July 24, 2017.  Testers will be notified via the GolfWRX PM system shortly thereafter.

Callaway-Steelhead-Testing

Here’s the message the good folks in Carlsbad wanted us to pass along to the readership in conjunction with this awesome opportunity.

“If you’ve been around golf for a while and familiar with our brand, you probably remember the old iconic Steelhead Fairway Woods and particularly the that are still widely considered to be one of the best fairway woods of all time. Well… they’re back and more powerful than ever.

“The reason the original Steelhead gained so much popularity was its beautiful shape and innovative Hawkeye Sole which promoted solid contact from almost any lie. With the new Steelhead XR Fairway Wood, we have improved on that iconic shape to make the head even more forgiving and easy to launch as well as incorporated modern power-producing technologies to super charge the face and give you killer distance and maximum forgiveness from the tee as well as the turf.

“Basically, this club is a beautiful beast, but before we unleash it on the public, we NEED your feedback. As always, we’re looking for some eager community members to put this baby through the ringer and provide us with honest feedback before it hits the market. I know you’re interested… so hit the link below to register.”

    I’ll wait for 2 years when FT-i XR comes out. I need more launch and speed with less spin and twisting.

    Used to have the 3+ back in the day and saw one of the new ones in the proshop over the weekend. The club looks great! Wonder if it would sound the same. . . Little bit of nostalgia.

    You don’t even get to keep the club. For all the promotion Callaway & WRX is receiving from this promotion you’d think they could afford to part with 6 clubs. If they want them back because they’re prototypes then the 6 six golfers should at least get an official release version of the club for their trouble. That is, assuming they want one after testing. Just a thought…

      It took approximately 90 seconds to fill out. I’m someone that plays steelhead plus 5-7-9, so I’m excited for the opportunity.

      Mind you, mine all have modern shafts, but the heads are still great.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
