Before posting the pics, I have to toss a few thoughts out there:

This is Callaway's best looking hybrid line up........EVER. :good: :smilie_cally:

If for any reasons you didn't play a Callaway hybrid in the past for cosmetics, shaping, etc., you have to commit to at least picking one of the new ones up, set it down, heck even hit it, but the look alone may be enough to make you reach for your wallet!

The new influence and leadership at Callaway continues to be obvious through great product.

And the driver pics, X2Hot-

The Pro model is a great package for those that like a more compact look, and man this thing has a nice deep face!  Adjustable weight screw in back of head is a really nice addition for those wanting to manipulate swingweight when playing with various shafts.

Standard version real nice - more pear type shape.

I'm a lefty, hence why I was simply calling out the incredible cosmetics and shaping of these new clubs.  Full performance feedback will come once some LH models are available.

Yeah i was just asking if you were left handed. As a fellow lefty i remember you as the famous 9015 guy. I would have been heartbroken if i found out you were a righty.

Honestly, i was just asking. I wasn't trying to impeach your opinions of the club. I'm not sure why that got brought up

Either that's a mini golf ball, a bad camera angle, or else both the pro and standard hybrids look like they have humongous, almost fairway wood size heads.  Even worse, they both look to have deep faces.  I sure hope those are bad camera angles, because otherwise I can't imagine those selling very well.

Are the faces on these new hybrids deeper than the XH and XHP?

I have an XHP hybrid from last year and the face is super shallow. I hit some serious moon balls with it. I couldn't play it. I had to stay with my trusty Adams.

Yes, they are noticeably deeper.  I may be way off in reality, but to my eye, on par with Adams xtd and Mizuno jpx.

Yes, absolutely deeper, darn near perfect.  Wouldn't want any deeper, and last years XHot Pro face wasn't deep enough for my preference.

They look good.

Callaway shld have switched the color scheme of the big berthas and X2Hot. X2 hot shld have been blue. New berthas shlda been gray. From these pics, the gray looks like the classic original berthas. I like the blue used on the new berthas but this classic color wld have been better.

Once seeing in person, I couldn't agree more.  Seems to be getting quite a bit of interest and play on men's & women's tours......must work as good as it's looking!
