ClubTest 2014: Callaway X2 Hot Driver

Callaway X2 Hot Driver

Callaway X2 Hot Driver
Category: Max Game-Improvement Drivers
Price: $329
WE TESTED:
9°, 10.5° with Aldila ATX 55 graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The adjustable hosel increases draw bias as you increase loft. A larger, lighter face than in the X Hot driver contributes to 1.5 mph faster ball speeds. Lie angle and loft adjustability (+2/-1 degrees). Lighter head allows for a longer shaft and increased swing speed.

PROS
DISTANCE:
For several testers, it’s the longest in the Max Game-Improvement category; consistent length—produces long, straight drive after long, straight drive.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Consistently accurate—it tolerates mis-hits on the heel and toe with acceptable results; so easy to hit it feels like cheating.
FEEL: Impact sensation is strong, firm and powerful; the ball pounds off the clubface; a light club but you can still feel the head through the swing; feel is exceptional compared with others in its category.
PLAYABILITY: Gets top marks among Max Game-Improvement drivers; testers able to repeat high, straight ball flight over and over; several panelists say hitting a draw comes easily.
LOOK: It inspires confidence; easy to set up and get comfortable with at address; matte black finish prevents glare; Callaway chevron is a useful alignment aid.

CONS
A few testers say that spin rate is higher than desired; a small minority of guys find that mishits lose significant distance.

BOTTOM LINE: X2 Hot is the top-ranked driver in its class. An impressive performer across all categories that excels in feel and playability.

HOT STIX'S TAKE: Launch - High; Spin - Mid
