Callaway XR16 Driver Preview

“Forgiveness Meets Fast” in the Callaway XR and XR Pro Diver offerings, available in retail on January 29th. Callaway has made a clear effort to have better understanding of aerodynamics by working directly with the experts from Boeing, finding new ways to reduce drag and increase headspeed with a better airflow as the driver head travels through the swing. This means a new look on the crown with a unique “trip step” design, lighter face dispersing weight to the perimeter, and a new titanium chassis which equates to higher MOI, faster clubhead speed, and more forgiveness.

Features & Benefits
Forgiveness Meets Fast From Our Most Aerodynamic Head Shape And A Speed Step Crown – We worked with the aerodynamics experts at Boeing to reach a completely new threshold of ball speed. We made this a high head speed design with low drag, and we did it by pinpointing the size and placement of our re-engineered Speed Step Crown to save weight and add more ball speed. XR16 is designed to set the standard in aerodynamics for fast speed and more distance.

Extreme Forgiveness – This driver is extremely forgiving, and we’ve developed a larger shape for MOI, stretched out the crown with a bigger footprint, and put in a Center of Gravity that’s lower and deeper. All this forgiveness leads to more ball speed at every impact location, which can add more distance for all golfers.

Even More Ball Speed With A Faster Face – It features our next generation R*MOTO Face Technology that’s up to 19% thinner and the body is lighter too, which leads to more ball speed across the face. We’ve taken this saved weight and redistributed it in the clubhead for even more MOI. When you combine the faster face with the extreme forgiveness in this driver, you can pick up a lot of ball speed, whether you hit it dead center, off the heel, or off the toe.

Choose Your Shaft – The XR16 comes stock with a Fujikura Speeder Evolution 565 Shaft, and we have premium no-upcharge shafts to fit your swing speed.

XR16 Pro Driver
• Available Lofts: 9*, 10.5*
• Pricing: $399.99

Distance From Speed and Aerodynamics – We worked with the aerodynamics experts at Boeing to reach a completely new threshold of ball speed in a deeper face. We made this a high head speed design with low drag in a 450cc head, and we did it by pinpointing the size and placement of our re-engineered shape and a lighter Speed Step Crown to save weight and add more ball speed. And with lower spin and a more neutral CG bias, XR Pro 16 is built for the distance and workability that better players are looking for.

Forgiveness For Better Players – This driver has the forgiveness that better players can use to their advantage, and that’s what happens when you add MOI, provide a bigger footprint, and put in a Center of Gravity that’s lower and deeper. All this forgiveness leads to more ball speed at every impact location, which can add more distance for all golfers.

Even More Ball Speed With A Faster Face – We’ve stepped up our game with next generation R*MOTO Face Technology that’s lighter and thinner to deliver more ball speed across the face. When you combine the faster face with the forgiveness in this driver, you can pick up a lot of ball speed, whether you hit it dead center, off the heel, or off the toe.

Choose Your Shaft – The XR16 Pro comes stock with a Tour Proven Fujikura Evolution II TS 665 Shaft, and you can choose from our great selection of shaft options to find the one that fits your swing speed.
