CALLAWAY X2 HOT/X2 HOT PRO/X2 HOT DEEP
STREET PRICE: $240

TECH TALK: To increase ball speed, the X2 Hot's Carpenter 455 cupface is thinner and lighter than last year's X Hot. The saved weight is used to lower the CG and move it forward for more consistent launch conditions. A 63-gram wave-shape piece has been positioned inside the head and closer to the face than the X Hot.
L: "You can really go after it without fear because this fairway wood consistently produces great results."
M: "The simplicity of the design belies the explosive feel you get."
HOT: With the thin cupface design, Callaway is incorporating more driver-like face properties into a fairway wood.
NOT: X Hot's red was fierce looking; X2 Hot's orange is weaker.
