    The Callaway Steelhead XR Hybrids are built and designed with a very clear purpose in mind: to provide golf players with an unparalleled melange of forgiveness, distance and playability via the company’s industry leading technologies incorporated into their built. And if you don’t know what I am talking about, keep reading. Retailing from $219 (MSRP), the Callaway Steelhead XR Hybrids are created for more distance and speed due to their larger face and the next generation Hyper Speed Face Technology. These two features promote faster ball speed for increased distance, especially on hits which miss the sweet spot.

    The deep-back center of gravity works in tandem with the larger head for offering long carry, high flight and easy launch, while the Speed Step Technology is designed for the best aerodynamic quotient possible in order to improve airflow, thus making for more distance and faster clubhead speed. All this tech palaver aside, the Callaway Steelhead XR Hybrids are able to produce some of the most predictable and consistent shots out there, as they’re big and plenty long. Also, they make for some of the easiest to hit hybrids I’ve ever tried. The first thing that you’ll notice about the Callaway Steelhead XR Hybrids is that they’re big, yet on second look you’ll discover some pretty clever design touches that make the clubs to look and perform better than you’d have expected. And that’s pretty nice in my book, as it’s rare to see any of these things in a big hybrid like the SteelHead XR, and they do an awesome job in making these babies to look more player-ish than they really are. Bottom line, if you want to see how long you can really hit and you also want to produce almost identical shots over and over again, the Callaway Steelhead XR Hybrids will do the job.
