    Callaway XR Pro Hybrid Review

    If you’re an above average golfer, the Callaway Golf XR Pro hybrid can be regarded as a choice made in heaven, the golden path or whatever you want to call it. Long story short, this baby is a real gem and it will definitely improve your game, being a tad heavier than the regular XR hybrid, hence way more consistent, especially at superior swing speeds.

    Despite having a smaller/more compact head than the regular (XR), the Callaway XR Pro is built with performance in mind and if you were wondering about its apparent aggressive design, this club is way more forgiving than you would have imagined at a first glance. And as you probably know, forgiveness in a professional golf club is something that must be taken very seriously, especially when it comes to those bad golfing days; I bet even Tiger Woods has them, so figure that out for yourself. Another significant improvement when compared to the old X2 Hot Pro is that XR Pro’s CG is now 77 percent lower and comes with a 22 percent higher MOI; be aware of the fact that these figures really make a difference when using the XR Pro in real-life scenarios, they’re not just statistics. Callaway did an awesome job with the XR Pro, which is really an evolution in terms of performance and the club feels exactly as a high-quality hybrid should.

    Bottom line, the Callaway XR Pro hybrid comes with awesome looks, an improved/balanced head and a relatively smaller package than the regular XR; also, it’s very competitively priced (it retails for $229,99), so if it really fits your budget, go for it, you won’t regret it a bit.
