What we say...
Callaway tell us the fairway woods are the longest they’ve ever made, thanks in part to the Forged Speed Frame Face Cup that has been constructed from stronger steel. According to Callaway’s testing the clubs are at the USGA limit for spring-like effect.
The Carpenter 455 forged cupface design is 40 per cent thinner than Callaway’s RAZR X Black fairway from last year. According to Callaway, the new face is as thin as .047 inches.
In addition to the face design, Callaway has redesigned the internal weighting of the sole to push the centre of gravity slightly forward and low, for less spin.
There is also a X-Hot Pro version where the shafts are a half-an-inch shorter and lie angles are 2° flatter than the corresponding X-Hots.
