Best sleeper fairway wood of all time.

So true. But each can be the greatest of all time for that individual, so the possibilities are endless! I think the OP is just looking for various perspectives.
Callaway XHot2 Pro 3 wood, 15 degrees, Aldila Tour Green stiff shaft
Callaway XHot2 Pro 5 wood, 17 degrees, Aldila Tour Blue stiff shaft
Titleist 816 H1 hybrid, 19 degree set to 20, Diamana Blue 60S shaft
Miura CB57 5-PW, Nippon Modus 125 stiff shafts, soft-stepped
Ping i200, 4-PW, power spec lofts, Dynamic Gold 120 stiff shafts
Mizuno S5 50-degree gap wedge, Nippon 1150 stiff shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 2 54-degree wedge, S grind, DG wedge shaft
Callaway Mack Daddy 4 Raw, 58-degree wedge, X grind, DG S200 shaft
Edel Rogue putter (thick blade), 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip
Argolf Avalon (small, semi-circle mallet) 34 inch, 71 degree lie, 2 degrees loft, 100-gram round Pure grip.

I would say all of their older fairway woods were underrated, not a fan of the newer ones.

These were so much cleaner looking than the X Hots, and performed the same or better (which is high praise). Stock shaft was the only limiting factor. The head itself was/is perfect.

Give me a 55 or 56 degree lie angle and I won't hook it. Beyond that I don't go for shallow face or too deep. Like them moderate so I can like the look off turf or tee. That's why I am eyeing the new Steelhead 3+ or 4+, both of which are 1.5 to 2 degrees flatter than the standard 3 or 5. I bet I will have no trouble elevating that 13.5 degree 3+ because these clubs tend to get the ball up anyway. And I am a fan of the cambered sole.
I agree with this post (as you can tell by my sig, I've had an xhot2 in the bag for a very long time). Not sure the XRs are "under the radar" but for the xhots and xhot2s, back then it was all about Rocketballz and you saw Rocketballz in every single bag (not xhots). The xhot2 came with the Aldila tour series (Green, Blue, Red, etc...) *stock*. That was pretty good. I don't really know much about lie angles and all that here. I think those Aldila tour shafts have got to be up there with legit Blueboards and old Sasquatch Diamanas as some of the best stock shafts ever. Jon Lahm is playing a shaft in his driver right now that was stock in the x2hot wood.
I love the Xhot2, its probably my favorite club, and I play my irons +2.5* up (and have an extremely upright swing, on purpose). Just goes to show you how much golf is crazy and dependent on individual preference. You wrote a long thing about how you like it because it isn't upright. My Pro 3 feels incredibly upright, way more than the Rocketballz I've tried and *way* more than the M1/M2s I hit at a recent Taylormade tent day at my local range.
Probably a pretty good club if a guy who loves clubs flat swears by it and a guy who loves clubs upright swears by it.

I don't know if any Titleist products could be considered "sleepers". Great woods though!

I will concur with the above, as both are in the bag. I've had the BTY for ~4 years and it's probably the best golf club purchase I've made.
