In addition to new offerings in drivers, fairway metals and irons, Callaway has released a pair of hybrid models this year. One is a member of the high-performance X Hot family, while the other is a part of the RAZR line-up, which resides in the game-improvement realm. The X Hot is distinguished by the compact look of its grayish clubhead and the utilization of a so-called Speed Frame Face. That feature is designed to produce faster ball speeds all across the clubface, for longer, more consistent distance and improved forgiveness. These hybrids also employ a modern Warbird sole, to make it easier to hit shots from a variety of lies, and come with a premium Project X Velocity shaft stock, to bolster clubhead speed – and distance. According to Callaway engineers, those combined features give the X Hot the distance and forgiveness of a fairway wood with the accuracy and control of an iron. As for the RAZR HL hybrids, they are made to provide maximum forgive- ness while providing extra distance and improved accuracy, even on mis-hits. The clubs employ what the equipment maker calls Zero Roll design, to produce higher launch angles, for greater distance and softer landings, on shots struck low on the clubface.
