2013 Callaway X Hot and X Hot Pro Hybrids

Callaway X Hot Pro Hybrid

Callaway’s X Hot and X Hot Pro Hybrids offer longer distances and more playability from a variety of lies thanks to thinner faces and a redesigned version of Callaway’s warbird sole.

Engineers were able to make the faces of the new hybrids 15 percent thinner than Callaway’s previous version, the 2012 RAZR X, thanks to a heat treatment called precipitation hardening, which means that the 17-4 stainless steel cup faces were essentially baked in the oven for a little while.

According to Callaway, the thinner faces are more forgiving on mishits and add an average of 3 yards of distance when compared to the RAZR X hybrids.

The reworked Warbird sole of the X Hot hybrids features relief in the heel and toe (see how it makes the sole more “u shaped” in the pictures below), which makes the X Hot hybrids more playable from a wide variety of lies.

Callaway also made the lofts 2 degrees stronger than last year’s standard-model hybrids to fill in the gaps between the company’s longer-flying X Hot irons and soon-to-be-released X Hot fairway woods. In the Pro version, the company added a 16-degree model, and while the loft of the 18-degree model did not change, the 20-degree and 23-degree models are 1 degree stronger than the company’s offering from last year.

“We had to reconstitute these to fit the right spots in the bag,” said Dr. Alan Hocknell, vice president of R&D for Callaway.

Both models feature square face angles at address, but the Pro model offers smaller heads, less offset and shafts that are 0.75-inches shorter.

    Very nice looking club. It sets up well to my eye and the matte black crown is smart looking. The only negative is the industry wide trend of going low profile with clubhead designs… I HATE LOW PROFILE!!!

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK Orange Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
