Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero Driver Review
The recently unveiled Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero Driver retails for $499,99 (MSRP) and it's aimed at better players. This baby was designed and built for delivering amazingly low spin and Callaway really hit the nail on the head with this one, as the driver is already Tour proven by golf players such as Phil Mickelson. The Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero features the company's lowest center of gravity (CG) ever, using a proprietary Carbon Triax Crown, and this high-tech gizmo works wonders when it comes to helping high speed swing golfers to control and reduce spin. Obviously, reduced spin when it comes to high speed swings translates into more distance, and that's awesome. The exceptional distance levels offered by the Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero are a direct consequence of the below the neutral axis center of gravity of the driver, which is due to the aforementioned Carbon Triax Crown. The lowest CG driver in the company's history was made possible by the state of the art ultra-light carbon made crown.
Now, all you have to do is to swing this baby as fast as you can, and you'll definitely benefit from tons of distance, like never before! But speed isn't everything, right? For fine tuning the trajectory in order to achieve the best results, Callaway put 2 interchangeable weights in the driver's head, in order to fully control both the trajectory and the spin. While the distance of the Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero is awesome, the same thing is true about workability, i.e. you'll be able to take on any tee shot with this driver! Talking about adjustability, if you put the heavy weight forward, you'll achieve extremely low spin, while moving it back, the end result will be a flat trajectory and increased forgiveness. Very interesting from my point of view, the Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero doesn't come with the iconic Speed Step Crown, a feature that improves aerodynamics and increases the club head's speed. In my opinion, the driver is so good already, that the Speed Step Crown was unnecessary, and that's outstanding, don't you think? The Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero will become available in stores starting with April 15'th and you'll be able to choose from twenty premium shafts to fit your desired swing speed for no up-charge.
