Callaway X Hot/
X Hot Pro
LOFTS: 9.5, 10.5, 11.5, 13ht for X Hot; 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 for X Hot Pro (all adjustable)
TECH TALK: Callaway's X Hot line features a three-way adjustable hosel. Like the RAZR Fit Xtreme, every loft is designed to accommodate specific players. For instance, each one has a different bulge radius and draw bias based on the impact pattern of golfers most likely to play that version.
L: "Looks a little bland at address, but that was the only thing lacking. I could be aggressive, and it would make up for any mis-hits."
M: "The feel at impact is that the face is actually flexing. That was sweet."
HOT: Adjustable and lightweight with a draw bias: X Hot is the adjustable driver for the masses. The X Hot Pro's open face angles are what better players want.
NOT: Limited models for left-handers.
