I gotta admit it sucks to not have it yet. But there's things that could be far off worse. So far I'm loving all the reviews and can't wait to unleash the beast!
Keep it up Gentlemen
When I get some pictures tonight I am going to compare to my Mashie and my Razr X HL. I had alot of problems with pulling the Mashie because of the offset. The 20-30 swings I have put on the X-Hot on a LM have not been any pulls at all. It's something different about it at address for me and I dont quite know how to explain it. Going to try to hit the range tonight with it as well.Great start to this one guys, after hearing Tadashi say in TX that this is the "sleeper" or "hidden gem" of the X-Hot line, I have been eager to hear more about them.
As others have mentioned, I also really like the offset look at address. For some reason, I just have a bit more confidence looking down and seeing that face stepped back just a hair from the shaft. I also really like how PX is the stock shaft as I have become quite fond of them in my experiences.
The size of the head is just so deceiving. When I was at GG a week ago and I hit it, I was talking to a few people there about it and all of them said they didnt like it because of how small the head was. People don't realize that just because it is a "smaller" head doesnt mean it's not forgiving. It is designed to be a hybrid between an iron and a wood so why does it always have to be closer to the wood part of that equation? People don't want iron heads bigger do they? I hope that makes some semblance of sense.I hit a few of these with various shafts during my fitting and I am still amazed at the ball flight and how easy it is to hit them. Low spin with a high launch that can worked, hello tucked pins on long par 3s.
Again, the talk of the higher launch had me pretty dang excited.I hit a few of these with various shafts during my fitting and I am still amazed at the ball flight and how easy it is to hit them. Low spin with a high launch that can worked, hello tucked pins on long par 3s.
That's why I went with the Razr X HL hybrids last year. I think we both have the same ball flight issues. I cant tell you how excited I was to see the ball flight on this when I hit it on the LM. Cant wait to get it to the range tonight.Again, the talk of the higher launch had me pretty dang excited.
Sounds like a great combo!!!Just received my X Hot 19* hybrid with a Project X PXV 6.5 shaft. I really wasn't expecting to receive the "Pro" shaft in the non-Pro head, kudos to Callaway for that!! Looking forward to putting this little sucker up against the i20-20* and see just how they compare...
Rain here tomorrow and possibly Wednesday but I have a practice round scheduled for Thursday and a weekend tournament Saturday and Sunday. So I'll put it through its paces and report back as I can. Hopefully, I'll have a full review together by Monday (Sunday night, possibly).
Initial thoughts I'll hold off on but I'm cautiously optimistic. Love the sock...
I'll be in Branson. Feel free to give the XHOT a whirlI'm intrigued by this club, will any of you be in Branson? I would love to try this, and then let you try the RBZ Stage 2.
The offset isn't pleasing to my eye as much, and it looks like it's much smaller than the RBZ. But I've always had good luck with Callaway clubs and stock shafts.
Great initial write up guys.
It's a point I am trying to get across but unless you hold it at address its hard to describe. Yes, there is an offset but at address you don't really notice it.was at dicks tonight and was looking at the Hybrids at address i thought the pics online and even on here it look offset but in person i don't think it looked as bad. i wonder if the pro model looks any different at address something that might make my decision on what model i go with in my bag this year.
