Callaway launches X2 Hot golf club range

Callaway Golf has announced the launch of the X2 Hot golf club family, an all-encompassing new range comprising both woods and irons.

The new line includes the X2 Hot driver, X2 Hot fairway woods, X2 Hot hybrids and X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro irons.

The X2 Hot driver is purported to be 10 yards longer that its predecessor - the X Hot - thanks to a thinner and lighter titanium face that helps boost ball speeds.

Callaway has also improved the head shape, increased the sweet spot by 10% and introduced Advanced Adjustable Hosel Technology, which allows the golfer to modify loft (-1 - 2 degrees) and bias.

The X2 Hot fairway woods feature a thinner, lighter face for faster ball speeds across the face, improved internal weighting and a modified warbird sole design.

Callaway claims these innovations make the X2 Hot fairway wood seven yards longer than the X Hot fairway wood.

The same face is also employed in the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro hybrids, facilitating longer and more consistent distance in a range of models and lofts.


The wooden clubs are complemented by two new iron ranges: the X2 Hot and the X2 Hot Pro.

The former uses an undercut channel to increase the trampoline effect and face flex, while maximum perimeter weighting has enlargened the sweet spot.

These developments ensure the new easy-to-hit X2 Hot irons produce more distance, higher launch angles and increased stopping power.

The X2 Hot Pro version features a thinner, hotter face with a larger sweet spot and a Central Mass Bar for increased MOI and improved resistance to twisting.

According to Callaway, tests have shown the new X2 Hot irons to be 3-5 yards longer than the X Hot Pros.


X2 Hot driver: £279 X2 Hot fairway woods: £189 X2 Hot hybrid: £169 X2 Hot irons (steel - seven clubs): £549 X2 Hot irons (graphite - seven clubs): £699
