Golf Australia Express : GA Express 211
C ALLAWAY extends its major-winning XR family of products with tomorrow’s launch of the STEELHEAD XR IRONS AND HYBRIDS. Steelhead XR irons combine the iconic shaping and playability that madeely flex and release at impact with greater efficiency, adding ball speed that promotes more distance, especially on off-centre hits. The boost in face speed is so significant that it has increased the co-efficient of restitution (spring-like effect of the ball leaving the face) close to what is permitted under the Rules of Golf. More speed and distance on mis-hits is possible due to a modern Hollow Bore-Thru hosel design, which allowed Callaway’s engineers to remove weight from the hosel and reposition it in strategic areas within the clubhead. This increases moment of inertia (MOI) for more forgiveness on mis-hits and precisely positions the centre of gravity (CG) strategically in the long, middle and short irons. The progressive CG positioning helps launch longer irons higher for more carry and distance, and the scoring irons lower for added control and accuracy. The design of the new Steelhead XR hybrids takes hybrid design to the next level. Compared to XR hybrids, the head is longer from heel to toe and deeper from front to back, with a deep back CG, all of which combines to make Steelhead XR hybrids even more forgiving and easier to launch. Likewise, the face of each Steelhead XR hybrid is larger and incorporates next-generation Hyper Speed Face Cup technology that allows the edges of the face to flex and release faster at impact, raising ball speeds on both centre and off-centre hits to promote more distance. With Callaway’s Speed Step Technology, designed with the assistance of aerospace experts, airflow has been improved to promote faster clubhead speed for more distance.
