The newest addition to Callaway’s XR family – the Steelhead XR Pro iron – is a player’s club that boasts a compact shape; a thinner top line and narrower sole width; a black, PVD finish; and technological improvements designed to bolster launch, distance, forgiveness and feel.
In developing this new line, company engineers looked to add as much ball speed as possible on off-center hits, so players could get more distance out of their shots. To do that, they upgraded Callaway’s 360 Face Cup technology, which allows the edges of the ultra-thin clubface to flex freely and release at impact with greater efficiency and force.
At the same time, those technicians used a Hollow Bore-Thru hosel design with the Steelhead XR Pros to remove weight from that part of the club and move it to other areas in the head in order to increase moment of inertia for even better forgiveness on mis-hits and also to position the center of gravity more strategically through the set.
Another feature of these sticks is a steel-infused polyurethane layer positioned low in the clubhead and just behind the lower portions of the face. It is made to absorb vibrations for enhanced sound and feel as it also beefs up ball speed and elevates launch.
