Callaway XR 16 Driver and Fairway Woods

The fast, forgiving outcome of a collaborative effort between Callaway and Boeing aerodynamics experts
Callaway’s renowned Research & Development team worked closely with aerodynamics experts at Boeing to achieve a new threshold in ball speed with the XR 16 Driver. By pinpointing the size and placement of the re-engineered Speed Step Crown, engineers saved weight and lowered drag. That result is an increase in clubhead speed and, in turn, more ball speed. The extreme forgiveness of the XR 16 Driver was accomplished thanks to the larger, high MOI shape with a stretched crown, and a lower and deeper center of gravity. All that forgiveness leads to more ball speed at every impact location, which can add more distance for golfers of all ability levels. Callaway’s next-generation R*MOTO Face Technology is nine grams lighter and thinner than in previous models, yet still stronger due to the use of new 8-1-1 titanium. The body is lighter, too, which leads to more ball speed across the entire face.
Shaft: The XR 16 Driver comes standard with a Fujikura Speeder Evolution 565 Shaft, or choose a custom shaft to best suit your swing.

XR 16 Pro Driver
Fast and forgiving for better players  
The new XR 16 Pro Driver is the result of a collaborative effort between Callaway’s Research & Development team and Boeing’s aerodynamics experts to redefine ball speed possibilities in a deeper face design. Engineered for more advanced players who desire workability in their long game, the XR 16 Pro has a 450 cc stretched head design, lower spin and a more neutral center of gravity bias that is low and deep in the club head. The re-engineered shape helps reduce drag, and a lighter Speed Step Crown helps save weight. Next-generation R*MOTO Face Technology is lighter and thinner to deliver more ball speed across the face.
Shaft: The standard shaft offering in the XR 16 Pro is the Tour-proven Fujikura Evolution II TS 665 Shaft, or choose from Callaway’s extensive selection of shaft options to find the one that fits your swing.

Bigger, hotter, and more forgiving, with a new face cup and lightweight crown for even more speed and distance
Callaway’s recent fairway wood advances have helped the company become the #1 Fairway Wood in Golf. In 2016, the company continues its innovative streak in the category with the launch of the new XR 16 Fairway Woods. Designed with a bigger, more forgiving head shape, they combine Callaway’s highest MOI, a low center of gravity, and the highest COR (a technical term for face hotness) in a fairway wood. The XR 16 Fairway Woods also boast Callaway’s lightest fairway wood crown ever, which has allowed engineers to move club head weight where you need it most. The company’s industry-leading Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup has been made hotter and thinner for even more speed and a large sweet spot, while a more aerodynamic head shape helps create even more head speed, which translates into greater ball speed and distance. As easy to hit as they look to be, the XR 16 Fairway Woods are also highly versatile, thanks to a cambered sole that helps make them more playable from all lies.

XR 16 Pro Fairway Wood
Hotter and more forgiving in a compact shape, with a new face cup for even more speed and distance
Callaway’s XR 16 Pro Fairway Woods represent a huge leap in the company’s industry-leading fairway wood technology. The compact, aerodynamic head shape is designed to appeal to better players while delivering more head speed, fantastic turf interaction and low-spinning shots. Callaway’s forged Hyper Speed Face Cup is hotter and thinner to deliver more ball speed and a greater sweet spot. The thin crown design has allowed Callaway engineers to move weight to where it’s needed most, improving forgiveness, and the lower center of gravity makes for a highly versatile fairway wood that can be relied upon to pull off any shot you can conjure up.
