New Callaway X Hot 3Deep Fairway Wood

Posted at 10:34 AM by Michael Chwasky | Categories: Callaway, Fairway Woods

Callaway's brand new X Hot 3Deep fairway wood is the direct result of Tour player demand. Featuring a deep face design aimed at producing a more boring ballflight, the X Hot 3Deep is built with a forged speed frame face for higher ballspeeds and an internal weighting system that creates a lower CG for optimal launch conditions. An improved version of the famous Warbird sole allows for better playability from a variety of lies.

According to Randy Peterson, Callaway director of fitting & instruction, the new model is an extension of the existing X Hot Pro model but with design changes made to suit none other than Callaway staffer Phil Mickelson. 

"Initially the X Hot Pro came about when Phil asked for a fairway wood that he could hit off the tee with a little more distance and workability but could also hit from the fairway. The Pro has great ballspeeds but works better for players who contact the ball a bit lower on the face. Phil tends to hit it a little higher on the face so we made the clubface on the 3Deep about 10-percent higher. This change produces both higher ballspeed and more optimal spin rates for players who strike the ball a bit higher on the clubface." 

The X Hot 3Deep fairway wood ($229) is available in 13- and 14.5-degree models (only 13-degree for southpaws) and comes standard with a lightweight Project X Velocity shaft.
