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 PRO Orange 80 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

    I don’t get it

    A hybrid is an iron replacement with some wood technology.

    So A super hybrid is an iron replacement with some wood technology with some more wood technology.

    Hmmm!?!

    How long are these things? Specs missing length and can’t find anything on Callaway’s site…….if they’re making the head bigger, I’m suspecting they’ll make it longer too and achieve distance gains they can sell by marketing a pseudo-fairway wood under the guise of a hybrid. I hope the 17 degree isn’t longer than 41″

      41.75″

        41.75? hahahahahahahah….

        That’s where the distance is coming from. I’m sure it’s the standard 0.83 CoR.

    I don’t understand. If I want fairway distance, I’ll hit a fairway, because it’s more forgiving.

    If I’m hitting a hybrid, it’s either as an iron replacement, or as a rescue.

    This is just another version of “17 more yards”. Ugh.

    You don’t see too many 17-degree hybrids available for lefties so I might be willing to give this a try next fall or in 2021 when it doesn’t cost $320.

      Yeah true, way too much negativity in forums.

      For what it’s worth, I do like the look of these hybrids and am in particular interested in the 17 degree one to replace broken 16 degree I loved. The 17 and 23 would sort my long game nicely!

      I will probably pick the 17* up. I’ve never gotten along with fairway woods and could use the additional distance. Every forum is the same regarding this stick. People haven’t hit it or researched the club. They just come on a post their opinions without experience or data. I’ve been in the club repair and fitting industry for 35+ years. This club has me intrigued.

    Callaway irons are looking better and better and the woods/hybrids are going the exact opposite way.

      i told that to my rep. Burnt orange is not a good color. Callaway might be in for a rough year

    I’m gonna hit the 17 degrees longer than my current 14 degree 3wood, fer surrrrr

    $319 for a hybrid? Are they nuts?!?
    .
    Will they continue to copy Adams with the “Super” line of hybrids & fairway metals?

    • nope

      Oct 22, 2019 at 11:12 am

      what? Yonex was using super in it’s naming conventions before Adams even existed

    • Moosejaw McWilligher

      Oct 22, 2019 at 2:01 pm

      I did not realize Adams invented and trademarked the word “Super”. Seems more likely that the folks at Callaway who named this are young enough to not even remember Adams golf – I certainly don’t!

      Hardly the first $300+ hybrid in the world.

      Fake news!

        Well then, keep quiet until you grow up.

        Most of the people who work at Callaway worked at Adams golf, including the CEO Chip Brewer.

      If you took all mentions of Callaway out of the article, i’d think it’s 2010-2013 and it was about Adams. Reminds me a lot of the XTD Super Hybrid.

        My super DHy might be my favorite club in the bag.

What GolfWRXers are saying about TaylorMade’s SIM fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, WRXer Hotdocta created a thread to discuss the new SIM fairway woods and wants to hear from fellow members who have experienced them. Plenty of WRXers give their thoughts on the 2020 additions from TaylorMade, with the vast majority mightily impressed with what they have seen.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • DNice26: “I bought the 5 wood based on reports the Sim is silly long and low spin, and after my first round today, it absolutely delivered. The 5 wood isn’t too big, and I found it to flight excellently off the tee and off the fairway. It set me up today for birdies on all the par 5s. I have mine shafted with an 80X diamana blue, and it is fantastic.”
  • JoeFrigo: “The SIM is the hottest 3w I have ever hit. Had the m6 all last year and absolutely loved it. I said all last year it was the best fairway I’ve ever played….the SIM is even better. I love the profile at address, and there are times the SIM 3w gets within 1mph of my driver ball speed. I honestly went back to PGA store for playability and grabbed the 5w instead because the face is so hot. I had about 5 launch monitor sessions and 1 round on the course and was killing it, but gaps were way off now. Decided id wait and get more course time with it, but then the Coronavirus came.”
  • tyusg: “The SIM fairways are extremely hot off the face. Was hitting off the trackman at my work, and was reaching smash factors of 1.51 and 1.52. The shape of them do remind me of the M6, a little bigger, and a pretty deep face. But the V Steel tech they put back in I believe is why the smash was so high. Even on off center hits, the ball speed was pretty much all there still.”
  • Polly509109: “I have hit both SIM ti/ SIM Max. They were both very good. Tried all the Mavrik 3W offerings and SIM fit my swing better. Switched from TS3 fairway. Into the SIM ti with my old shaft from the Titleist. 82X Diamana Whiteboard. Don’t have any numbers for you, not really a launch monitor guy. But was getting 255-269 carry and 275-288 overall with the stock Diamana 75S shaft when I was fitted. 104-108 ss. Don’t know what kinda monitor.”

What GolfWRXers have bought since ‘lockdown’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their golfing purchases since lockdown began in many areas of the world. WRXer ‘lvmike’ created the thread and has purchased a Ping putter as well as a TaylorMade driver and our members have been getting involved with plenty of WRXers investing in new equipment from clubs to hitting mats and beyond.

Here are a few posts from the thread but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JoeFrigo: “Other than a mat and net, unfortunately, I haven’t bought any clubs…courses are closed here so I can’t hit anything anyways. I’m now really looking into a personal launch monitor since ill have a month at least of no range time. But the temptation is strong for more clubs! particularly putters since I can do that in my basement green.”
  • manima1: “Purchased an EXPUTT putting simulator – perfect for lock-down. Review so far is this is an excellent tool in dialing in putting distances and developing a consistent stroke at a given distance – similar to how you can dial in irons and wedges on a typical full simulator.”
  • pmang: “In the past week I’ve bought a SIM Max, a TS2 and a hot melt gun. Come to think of it I bought a Garmin clip-on GPS/Rangefinder… oh, and some Adidas golf shoes…. and I’m sure there will be more.”
  • pgetzen: “Bought a Stitch SL1 bag and two Cleveland RTX4 wedges on the Walmart deal, as well as 3 knit headcovers.”
  • 1PuttTutt: “Full basement simulator setup, including hitting mat, screen/enclosure, mevo+ launch monitor, projector, gaming laptop, etc. Unfortunately only the hitting mat has arrived so far, but I was able to set up some blankets and padding so I can hit balls in the basement. I also bought four dozen balls and a pushcart. I was thinking the pushcart was a genius idea, being that courses would limit to one person per cart, and courses would run out. But then they shut courses down before I could use it.”
  • uglande: “Two Vokey SM8 wedges and a Scotty Special Select putter. I’m wearing out my basement carpet with all of this chipping and putting, so my short game should be good to go when we’re released again to the outdoors. I also bought some sweet Titleist black leather (noir) head covers.”
  • Kye123: “Me, my dad and my little bro bought a Swingcaddie S300 and an industrial net from a fishing company… was going great until my little bro sailed a 60 straight into the conservatory two houses down, wedges are now banned.”
