New for January 2014, Callaway's X2 Hot is a new line of distanced-focused woods and irons - including drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. Each club has distance, speed and forgiveness in common.
The X2 Hot products, including drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons - each with a Standard and Pro version - have been developed to be longer, faster and more forgiving for a broad range of golfers. The X2 Hot line of products will be available worldwide on January 17, 2014.
X2 Hot Drivers
Emphasising the focus on distance, the X2 Hot Drivers debut Callaway's Hyper Speed Face technology, with a large overall design based on player impact probability and stress distribution across the face, resulting in high average ball speeds and a lighter weight construction.
Players can independently adjust the driver’s loft and lie with the Advanced Optifit Hosel. Loft can either be decreased by 1-degree or increased by up to 2-degrees to help optimise the launch angle and backspin. The lie angle can also be adjusted between Neutral and Draw. Eight total settings are available to help golfers adjust their trajectory and shot shape and unearth maximum distance gains for their game.
Callaway offers options in the X2 Hot line to promote optimal distance gains for all swings. The standard version of the X2 Hot Driver is 460cc, available in 9°, 10.5° and 13.5°HT lofts, and comes stock with an Aldila Tour Blue shaft. The Pro version, available in an 8.5° offering, is 440cc, features a lower, more neutral center of gravity, and includes a 7 gram external weight. The Pro model will be available with the Aldila Tour Green shaft as the stock offering.
X2 Hot Fairway Woods | X2 Hot Pro Fairway Woods
Features new Hyper Speed Face Cup technology that incorporates a thinner face for added ball speed, particularly on impacts low in the face - and an mproved the Internal Standing Wave, a weighting system that allows an ideal CG position for distance from all impact locations on the face.
Callaway will offer a host of options in the X2 Hot Fairway Wood, expanding the distance and versatility offerings for various player types and playing conditions. This includes new options of the Deep Fairway Woods, which gained notoriety with Phil Mickelson’s incredible birdie on the Par 5 17 en route to his 2013 Open Championship victory. Options include a 3-, 4-, 5-, 7-, 9- and 11-wood in the Standard model; a 13.5°, 15°, 17° and 19° in the Pro model, and Callaway will add to its Deep series with an X2 Hot Pro 2Deep, a 3Deep and a 5Deep offering. Stocks shafts are the same as the driver.
X2 Hot Hybrids | X2 Hot Pro Hybrids
The X2 Hot Hybrids add the Hyper Speed Face Cup and the Internal Standing Wave in a hybrid for the first time. These technologies and others have resulted in a sweet spot that is 13 times larger than its predecessor’s (not a misprint), CT that is up to 22% higher on center hits and up to 30-40% higher on off-center hits. A new, more contemporary head shape, the X2 Hot Hybrids feature a larger face area, a straighter, flatter leading edge and less offset.
Callaway will offer a 3, 4, 5 and 6-Hybrid in the Standard model and a 16°, 18°, 20° and 23° Hybrid in the Pro model. Same stock shafts as the other woods products.
X2 Hot Irons | X2 Hot Pro Irons
The Standard X2 Hot Iron, features a new Deep Central Undercut that increases the face compliance to boost ball speeds and distance. A stabilising arch optimises the stiffness distribution across the face for a great sound and feel, while moving the hot spot lower on the face (and therefore more in line with a player’s impact location). High MOI along with a repositioned centre of gravity and improved turf interaction - easily making these the most accurate long distance irons Callaway has ever designed.
The Pro model, with a thinner face and a uniquely designed stabilising arch that moves the weight low and central - retains high ball speeds and distance advantages, but without an undercut cavity and in a compact shape that is more appealing to discerning players. The X2 Hot Pro Iron is further differentiated through a greater progression in offset and CG height, which helps retain some forgiveness in the longer irons while making the short irons more controllable and more appealing to the eyes for better players.
In the Standard model, the stock steel shaft is a True Temper Speed Step 85 and the stock graphite shaft is a lighter-weight offering than has been offered before. In the Pro model, the standard steel shaft is the Project X 95 Flighted shaft.
