What their pow wow with Boeing gave them was an insight into the airflow over their head, which was almost the opposite to an aerodynamic wing because they need to keep the air flow attached to the head for longer before it disperses. Using the raised Speed Step on the leading edge of the crown seems a bit counterintuitive to keep the airflow attached, but that is what it does. Its Polar Weighting system uses a heavy face and an in-line power source in the back of the head to increase stability, consistency and linear acceleration of the ball. I work in the golf industry and am able to hit all the new stuff that comes out and they all go to the same spots until I hit this club. Lie Angle 4 Par: The strategically placed low-forward CG position in the SLDR head promotes a faster ball speed, high launch and low spin for extraordinary distance.

This 11g weight saving is then used to move the CG back in a deeper head, that is longer back to front than the previous XR head in order to make it more forgiving.

They are now sorry I bought one too. Used but in fantastic shape. In order to make it lower spinning, the Callaway XR Pro 16 driver has a more traditional shape with a taller face than the standard model to make it more compact.

It does look a little stretched when you first put it down in the same way as other drivers of this style do, but you get used to it pretty quickly as the shape is not as extreme as other models. Lie Angle 4 Par: But this is not all, as one of the other tenets of driver design is that a bigger head is more forgiving, but slower through the air due to the extra mass.

Callaway FT-IZ Driver

Head has seen use, in fair to good condition, marks on face and and sole is a bit worn, used to be an i-mix but was fitted with permanent shaft, can not be changed dgree removedAldila NVS sport low ki All the 7 longest drivers at my country club had been using and bragging about their XR 16 driver and love this driver too.

I’ve been using my Callaway X16 in conjunction with my Big Berth and am very pleased with both.

However with drivers you are moving a flat face through the air and as it accelerates into impact it also rotates. There is also a draw setting that will close the face a little too, which could czlaway useful as thankfully the XR 16 sits a little less closed than the previous XR and for this reason I can see it appealing to more single figure golfers than before.

Number of bids and bid amounts may be slightly out of date. We cannot change amounts for declared value. This is really the trade off between the two models of lower spin and a squarer set up versus a larger head with more forgiveness. Good condition with normal use.

When a fellow golfer tries a GX-7 and decides it’s not for them, we test it to see whether it qualifies for the Certified Pre-Owned program. My club head speed is around and am hitting not so good ones around and good ones around I’ve been hitting the SLDR for about 3 years and love how long it is when you pure it but the sweet spot is soooo small!


As you can see the Speed Step is a little shorter in length and also closer to the leader edge of the crown.

Callaway XR 16 Driver Review – Golfalot

I use Callaway X2 irons with 2 degrees higher loft and stiff shaft and l Iove them too. I’m finding the XR16 is also super long but you don’t have to hit it right in the middle to get a lot out of it!!

The first drive I hit it off the toe and it ended in the middle of the fairway with a slight draw yards. My swing speed is mph.

Boeing had researched this for their planes and use dots along the front of the wings to break up the airflow to reduce drag and make their planes more fuel efficient.
