XR Deep Fairway Woods
Callaway XR Deep 14 Degree 3 Wood
Solid feel at impact, more forgiving than my Big Bertha 3 wood from last year. Feels like is really spring loads the ball of the face.
This 3 wood is 4-5 yards longer than my Big Bertha 3 wood from last year. The deeper face makes this club ideal for teeing off on tight holes and provides a boring trajectory off the the turf. I don't hit this 3 wood as high as the standard or pro model, but I do like that the added face height on the deep allows me to hit more balls out of the rough when the ball is sitting up an inch or so. I don't have to worry about going right underneath a perched lie where the ball is sitting up.
I swing at 109-112 mph with the driver, and I went with the stock Project X LZ 6.5 77 gram 3 wood shaft. The shaft feels great and explodes through impact when the Loading Zone (LZ) kicks through the ball. I should mention, I haven't been a fan of the Project X shaft in previous years, but this new LZ shaft is absolutely amazing.
This 3 wood looks like a stealth bomber with the gun metal matte charcoal/black finish. There is absolutely no glare whatsoever in the sun. I love the black face as well, it's easier to see where I hit the ball on the face.
I've demo'd Titleist, Taylormade, Ping, and the Big Bertha 3 Wood, and this one stood out above the rest for length and accuracy. I strongly recommend giving this 3 wood a try if you are looking for a 3 wood you can keep in your bag for a few years. Excellent work Callaway on improving the 3 deep line of fairway woods, great club, great results!

I have used many different makes and by far Callaway is the best.
The clubs feel is great and the the way they improve your game is for real.

First use today. Very good off the Tee.
Used the club for the first time today. Up fitted shaft with an Aldia 44 mag shaft.
Played two short par 4's and the club was wacellent. Solid and very good trajectory. Drove the first 290 yd par 4 to 70 yards of the center of the green. The second was a 280 yd par 4. Had a 50 yard chip. Really like the deep face.

Great off the tee
Like the deeper face for use as an alternative to driver on
tight tee shots. Longer than my previous 3 wood but you will
need good clubhead speed to use out of rough.

Long and solid
I decided to quit using a driver and tried the 3 Deep. What a
difference. I actually hit it further than any driver I have used.
Feels solid when hit. Feels heavier in the head than a driver.
The only drawback is hard to use on the fairway but from the
tee is great. Recommend if you have trouble with a driver
switch to this club for better results.

Haven't got it dialed in yet
I like it a lot. Purchased it as an alternate driver.
Still not consistent with it and not sure why.
At times I'm seeing numbers better than my driver.
Will keep trying

very long ex to hit
Deep face makes it good to drive with or out of rough.
