Longest driver ever -- way out there
I am 12 hc and 63 yrs old. Swing speed on launch monitor was 90 - 97 mph, average about 94. Hit the Ping G30 LS and G30; both carried about 220 yards. The Callaway XR carried 233-240, total distance about 258-265. Spin on XR dropped below 3000, on the Pings it spun over 4000. The XR was also just plain easier to hit than the Pings. My old drivet was TaylorMade RocketBall Stage 2. On the monitor and the course, carry was about 220 and total distance 240. I traded in my RB S2 and for $349 less trade, got the newest most advanced driver out there-- way, way out there.

I purchased a XR Driver about one month ago. I purchased this club in a like new condition and when I received it it did in fact look brand new. I have purchased other clubs from Callaway Pre-Owned and I am always happy with my purchase. It is easy ordering and always has fast shipping. This club replaced my X2 Hot Driver. It seems that I am in the fairway a little more and my distance has improved by about 10 yards. It is not a lot but every little bit helps. I would recommend this club to anyone.

Increased swing speed, less backspin, more accuracy
I love the look and feel of this club. During my fitting, my swing speed instantly improved by 4 mph and backspin dropped 30%.
I have played two rounds with this club so far and I am getting more carry distance, more roll, and improved accuracy over every club I have tried. The ball flies off of the face, and the sound is very satisfying. My confidence off of the has never been higher. Thanks Callawy for what is probably the best driver you have ever made!

BEST YET FROM CALLAWAY
Been playing Callaway since Eli was a pup. I am 72 year old , 10 handicap. Just replaced my BB Alpha head with XR on my Myazaki
shaft. On monitor yesterday My swing speed was CONSISTENTLY 7-8 mph faster. Needless to say, drive 10-14 yards further.
This completes set (Apex irons, BB fairway and hybrids, SCOR wedges nad Odyssey TANK counterbalance all in a Callaway 25th
Anniversary staff bag)

I played 18 holes today with my New XR driver, did not miss one fairway. It is very smooth, even on off center hits the ball felt good off the face with a draw. I let my buddy try it and he also was very impressed. This club does what it says, hot off the face and goes further than my X Hot Driver.

I tested XR driver against the new Cobra's the new Taylor R15 on the simulater at Dick's. I also tested it against my Cobra Bio. They are all great but I have been having ball spin issues to the right when the ball hits the ground. On the simulater the XR had one third less ball spin in all measurements. Will it work in real life? To me along with spin reduction the feel and swing speed felt awesome so i'm the owner of one also the first one sold at Dick's on the 20th. I didn't know it came out that day. However the feel and overall performane when comparing it made the difference. You must at least try it. As a senoir with a slow swing speed I selected the light shaft the ball just came off nicely and no feel back.

distance by far
great driver, added about 20-30 yards to my game. In fact hit one drive 306 yards, Never did that even when I was young. based the yardage on what the golf cart monitor said, so you can take it from there. Buy one if you are looking for distance and accuracy.

this product is great very hot of the face and very adjustable.
I'm crushing this driver 280 only swinging 98. That's not even my 100% 108 swing speed so I can't wait till I really decide to open up on this club. Tuned in very easy. Great driver.
