NCG Tests: Callaway’s extremely powerful X Hot hybridMay, 2013
NCG's team of experts review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the Callaway X Hot hybrid...
JW: Fantastic. It feels quick off the face and is nice and light. There is loads of energy in the shaft and head and I like the silver/grey finish. An excellent all-rounder that performs in every category.
PC: The most appealing hybrid I hit. Even the bad shots were good! I’d love to pull one of these out of my bag because I’d be so confident of hitting a good shot in any situation.
DM: Very responsive and quick off the face. For me personally, it wouldn’t be my first choice but I know that for a mid-handicapper it is incredibly easy to use and watching Pete hit this convinced me it was worth the Gold medal. For all three of us, it seemed to require no effort to get the ball firing straight, high and very long.
TESTERS: James Whitaker (pro), Dan Murphy (4hcp), Pete Chippindale (12)
