With its fast ball speeds and OptiFit® design, the Callaway X Hot driver provides explosive distance and enhanced adjustability for a wide range of swings. A lighter configuration, optimized center of gravity and larger sweetspot to maximize length, and the OptiFit hosel lets golfers set the speed frame face to fine tune their trajectory off the tee.
DISTANCE: It's lightweight (300 grams) yet powerful; it's long, too - the longest driver of the week for several testers.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Rewards smooth swings with straight shots; helps control fades and prevents them from becoming big slices.
FEEL: A real strength -- testers embrace the sweet sensation at impact; ball hugs the face briefly before exploding off as though it had been shot out of a cannon; plenty of zip and life to center contact.
PLAYABILITY: Repeatable straight or slight draw pattern with penetrating trajectory -- shots with 46" shaft tend to hit then scamper along the ground; loft adjustability works wonders.
LOOK: Matte gray crown with a black face is very businesslike in appearance; large, deep profile instills confidence at address.
