For those that have followed the equipment industry for any number of years, the name Super Hybrid is one you might remember. The moniker was popular for a number of years with Adams Golf, but they never had something quite like this.
Touted as having the power of a fairway wood, in the body of a hybrid, the Callaway Super Hybrid has a look that says “distance”. When you think fully loaded, technology package, you think automobiles, but running through what this hybrid offers, it definitely doesn’t hold anything back.
It all begins with construction. Starting with a high strength Titanium face insert to promote ball speed combined with Callaway’s Jailbreak Technology. First introduced in the Epic driver, Jailbreak brings two internal bars that stiffen the body placing more impact load on the face. Using titanium throughout the body of the Super Hybrid, Callaway was able to redistribute the weight a little bit better. The lighter weight titanium design allowed a higher volume of tungsten into the heel and toe areas of the club head for an increased moment of inertia (MOI).
Getting the center of gravity (CG) low and deep was a goal. Using T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown more weight was saved allowing for Metal Injection Molded Tungsten to be placed where necessary. This is all done to promote launch and control.
Adjustable in loft and face angle using the new OptiFit 3 adapter, the final package is what Callaway calls the Super Hybrid. What are your thoughts on the new Super Hybrid tech? Leave a comment below or join us in the THP Forum thread here and jump into the conversation.
