Callaway have unveiled a new XR Speed Driver and XR Speed fairway wood, which Callaway say are the longest and most forgiving clubs that have ever been introduced to the XR.
With both a driver and fairway wood that replace the previous models in the XR series, Callaway say the XR Speed driver and fairway woods combine everything the brand know about aerodynamics and face technology to produce their longest and most forgiving XR models yet.
Both models are available on the 8th May.

Callaway XR Speed Driver: Key Features
➤ New X Face VFT
X Face VFT is the very latest evolution of Callaway’s VFT (Variable Face Thickness) designed to maximise ball speeds across the entire face. X Face VFT is the lightest, most flexible and hottest face we have ever designed.
➤ Carbon Composite Crown To Increase MOI
The inclusion of a carbon composite crown on XR Speed is 45% lighter vs the XR 16
titanium crown, which significantly improves the mass properties and lowers the centre of
gravity for improved forgiveness with increased distance.
➤ Faster head speed from a refined Speed Step
Refined aerodynamic efficiency with improved airflow over and around the head thanks to
the latest Speed Step for faster club head speeds.
➤ Ultra-premium shaft as standard
One of the most premium aftermarket shafts available (used in the super-premium Epic
Driver), the Project X HZRDUS shaft is now available in the new XR Speed Driver.

Geared for more distance, the XR Speed Fairway benefits from a re-engineered Next-Gen Hyper Speed Face Cup over the previous XR fairways, which turns impact energy into an increase in ball speed across the whole face. Meanwhile, a refined Speed Step promotes faster swing speeds with no additional effort.
Callaway have also made forgiveness a key feature of their latest XR Speed fairway, making it playable for all levels of golf thanks to a new shallow face deisgn that is coupled with with their Hawkeye sole configuration.
