Callaway X Hot Drivers

Callaway Golf's newest driver is the X Hot, and the company touts its ball speed and distance performances. As in the claim that the X Hot driver may provide an additional 13 yards of distance (based on the average result in testing against the Callaway RAZR X Black driver).

The X Hot driver incorporates some of Callaway's well-known technology, such as Speed Frame Face Technology, to address not just efficient energy transfer from club to ball, but also weight savings.

The thin, all-titanium head helps create a lighter swingweight and lighter overall clubweight, while the clubface has a tighter curvature to create a look preferred by better players at address.

Something new from Callaway is the X Hot Driver's "Draw Bias Progression." What that means is that as the driver loft increases, so does the draw bias: more draw bias in higher lofts, less in lower lofts.

The X Hot driver is also adjustable through Callaway's OptiFit Hosel. Golfers can move the face angle to open, square or closed positions to affect ball flight.

The stock shaft is the Project X Velocity. The Standard Callaway X Hot Driver comes in lofts of 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 13 degrees, with a 460cc, matte-grey clubhead. The MSRP is $299, with retail availability beginning on Jan. 25, 2013.

A Pro model will also be offered, beginning on Feb. 15, 2013. The Pro Callaway X Hot driver has a slightly smaller clubhead (440cc), more open face angles relative to the Standard model, and lofts of 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees. It, too, will have an MSRP of $299. callawaygolf.com
