Callaway’s goal with the new X2 Hot driver
to offer more distance, control, and
forgiveness than the
previous X Hot driver. The X2 Hot offers four
new performance enhancing features: New
Hyper Speed Face,
Improved Head Shape and Construction, New
Advanced Adjustable Hosel, and New Tour
I’ve recently been in the market for a new
driver, but the the X2 Hot hadn't yet come
After hitting a few balls with it, however, I
started to reconsider my options. The
traditional matte grey finish,
black face and performance really helps the
Hot stand out amongst the competition.
SPECS & APPEARANCE
The X2 Hot driver is offered in three lofts: 9,
10.5, 13.5 (HT).
The Speed Frame face focuses on
performance, delivering everything from
forgiveness to increased ball
speeds. In addition, the new head construction
has increased playability, and MOI to create
Aldila has also partnered with Callaway to
provide a premium shaft to optimize
performance. The Aldila Tour
Blue shaft is stocked at 46-inches, 58 grams,
mid-torque, and mid-to-low kick-point to
performance and feedback.
The X2 Hot driver really delivers the “POP”
Callaway boasts about. Compared to the
received an average gain of seven yards.
Unlike most drivers with stock shafts that
geared towards performance, the Aldila Tour
Blue offered in the X2 Hot is a great high-
that delivers a mid-to-high ball flight without
the typical tip of most stock shafts that offer
a high launch.
Although this driver may not offer the most
adjustability on the market, the X2 Hot really
offers all a golfer
The new eight-way hosel and new Speed
Frame face is a deadly combination that will
sure to added
yards to your drives.
With adjustability being so important when
looking for the perfect driver, the X2 Hot has
introduced an all
new eight-way adjustable hosel . With two
easy steps, you can find the perfect
configuration for your
swing. Change lofts in one-degree increments.
After a 30-minute session at the range, I
found the perfect lie and loft adjustment and
picked up seven
yards with a simple click of a wrench.
The Callaway X2 Hot driver delivers the
forgiveness and workability that every golfer
wants. The addition of
the high-performance shaft and focus on
enhanced ball speeds and launch conditions,
makes the X2 Hot a
solid choice for a range of handicappers.
PRICING & AVAILABILITY
The X2 Hot is available now and retails at
$329. Callaway also released an X2 Hot Pro
Version with a more compact head size, which
also retails at $329.
