Hi folks,

A simple question, just wondering what the lie angle is on the X Hot LD heads that Sellingers has for sale.

I've emailed them a couple of times but haven't had a response.

Does anyone have some inside info on these heads?

Cheers!

Adam

I've got a 5 degree on its way, got a little event lined up and one of my customers swings it at 135mph so I'm hoping he might tee it up and smack a few for a demonstration.

I'm interested to give it a shot too, I got my angle of attack to +8 yesterday when I was practising on Trackman so the 5 degree will be a fun toy!

Finally figured out how to hit this thing. I have the LH 6* version set to standard with a HOF shaft. Thing plays pretty well. I hit one yesterday with it that was in the ballpark of 375 carry. only rolled about 2 feet thanks to wet fairways. The LH version I have does not have the LDA logo on the face. Just the standard Callaway etching that is on the normal xhot and pro driver heads. No biggie though. I think it is a cleaner look than the LDA logo.

I'm awaiting my 6* left handed head ready to be shafted up with a matrix black tie 7m3 at 45.5 inches. Going to see how that goes and might tip it a inch and end up with a short beastly driver.

Can't wait.

Aside from the availability of low-loft options, do these Callaway X-HOT LDA heads have any other unique characteristics?

In other words, are they BUILT DIFFERENTLY than the standard retail driver?

Would an average golfer find hitting one of these to be a benefit .... one with "normal" loft, of course.

No benefit at all, they are USGA legal heads.

No, no.... there was never a doubt that they would be "legal" or USGA C.O.R. conforming heads (who uses "illegal" stuff anyway?)

I just want to know if they're 'better built' to withstand long drive competitor clubhead speeds.  (If not, why would Callaway create a head that I understand is actually labled "X-Hot LDA?)

Yap, they are built differently, the faces are thicker. And therefor a normal person would not benefit from such a driver. Only a long driver does, because he doenst have to buy a new driver every 500 hits.
Therefor they dont have such a forgiving face and not such a high trampoline effect. Which brings me to the point, whats the maximum smash factor on those LD drivers?
