ūüĎÄ Callaway XR Speed: Coming 8.5.2018

Replacing the popular XR16 range, Callaway XR Speed is set to take aerodynamic performance and club-face effectiveness to new levels.

The XR Speed Driver sits nicely in the market of a¬†simple, hot-faced, high-speed Driver that’s also affordable.¬†Priced at ¬£299, the XR Speed is fully adjustable and comes with bundles of technology.

Callaway claim the XR Speed is the longest and most forgiving Callaway XR Driver to date. Big statement? We put it to the test.


Using FlightScope technology, our guys tested the XR Driver against their own Drivers at the Golfgeardirect Weald of Kent РPerformance Fitting Centre.

On average, Three Golfgeardirect staff were +8 yards longer with the XR Speed Driver.

The feedback from the guys was that the club has great looks and feel, along with the obvious bonus of 8 added yards.

It has that classic Callaway look that will appeal to many fans of the Californian giants.

Where does this extra distance comes from?


XR Speed benefits from a brand new VFT (Variable Face Thickness) design to maximise ball speeds across the entire face.

The company claim that the New XR Speed is the lightest, most flexible and the Hottest club-face ever designed in a Callaway Golf Driver


A Carbon Composite Crown is 45% lighter than the titanium crown on the previous XR16 model. Weight saving in the crown significantly improves the mass properties of XR Speed and lowers the COG (centre of gravity) for improved forgiveness with increased distance.


Refined aerodynamics and an improved airflow comes from the latest Speed Step on the crown, near the driver face, for faster club-head speeds and more distance.

¬†A trademark of many Callaway¬†Drivers, the¬†shallow face design makes XR Speed forgiving and easy-to-use for all levels.¬†Callaway added the popular Project X HZRDUS shaft as a standard option and is available at 45.5‚ÄĚ as standard length.

XR Speed Drivers (¬£299) and Fairway Woods (¬£199) are now available to PRE-ORDER¬†in both Men’s and Ladies at Golfgeardirect.co.uk, Golfgeardirect – Rainham and the Weald of Kent Golf Course & Hotel¬†
