Over 5 years ago I reviewed the original Callaway X-Hot fairway wood. I was drawn to it's length off the tee due to an extra inch on the shaft and a larger and more forgiving face. Since that time I've tried at least one fairway wood a year to see if I could replace it. Each time I felt like I was giving something up.
When the new Callaway X-Hot clubs were announced I jumped at the opportunity to take a few swings with the new version. While the shaft is a half-inch shorter, I felt like technology would make up the difference and also gain a bit in accuracy.
After a few sessions on the range and a handful of rounds all I can say is that I can guarantee that there will be an X-Hot in my bag the rest of the foreseeable future. Which one? Read on to find out.
