Love the all black look of the club
Grip is great, the feel is great, set up looks terrific, like the black a lot.
The weakness in my game is hitting my long hybrids between 180 yards and the 220 yard range consistanly...
I have work extemely hard trying to solve this part of my game. Unable to solve this yardage...I recently pull out of a tourneyment because the tourneyment coarse I was to play required at least 8 shots to these distances.
I realize only thing stopping me from inproving,/lowering my handicap from my present a nine handicap is inablity to make 180 to 220 yard shots and I needed to check out other clubs to see if they help me with these distances..
Just by chance at local golf coarse, Callaway rep was holding a demo of Callaway products..I watch others swinging demo clubs.., I demo tested the XR 4 hybrid, regular flex, graphite shaft.
The next day I talk with the head pro and he recommended me try the XR in 4 hybrid...regular flex, graphite shaft..
All my clubs are steel, stift shafts except my driver which is graphite and regular flex.. I am not fond of graphite shafts as they feel too light for me except in my driver which I hit very well...
I took the demo club from the pro, immediately found it to be totally different feel, swing, amazing.....after demo the club, I bought it, what I have to lose...
With one week of practicing with it, then playing in two evening leagues, every shot I made with this club was on the mark..
I am absolutely thrill with it...can not believe I have solved my 180 to 200 yard distances.
My shot goal for 180 to 220 yards is to have the ball land in a 20 yard diameter circle. With my existing hybids this may happen 1 out of 6 shots, be in that 20 yard circle I shoot for.
I learn to be a great scrambler because inability not able to make these long shots with my existing hybids...
With this club, I have the confidence to get the ball in a 10 yard diameter circle and do it consistanly out to 180 to 220 yard range..
What a great find...

I got about 5 yards more distance than the Taylormade hybrid it replaced. However, because the shot it produces also goes higher, it lands more softly on the green with less roll-out.

I've almost reached my first year of golf since retiring. I'm a fast learner and doing fairly well with my game, and do have much still to learn. But, I went ahead and got the XR Hybrids along with the irons. Great choice for me. Hitting much longer and accurate, landing the greens more frequently. Or, allowing me a 40-50 yd wedge shot. Lotta fun!

These clubs deliver in a big way
Had x2 hot hybrids but after getting a chance to hit an XR I could not believe how much better it felt. These are the best hybrids I've ever hit. It's almost impossible to hit a bad shot with these. The callaway pre owned service is second to none. 10 stars to the product and the service

The club (hybrid 6) is OK, but the head cover is unacceptable.
The head cover does not fit tight enough and as a result I am constantly re-adjusting it so I don't lose it. The knit covers on my previous hybrids are much better.

The XR hybrids feel great and are very long.
The XR feels great, is easy to draw, and is very long -- the longest I've hit by far. I hit the 5 hybrid as far as prior 3 hybrids. The XR 3 hybrid is great for second shots into par 5s and as an option off of the tee on par 4s.

It works for me and when I do my part right, the club does it's part flawlessly
When the big hitter days came to an end for my father (a 2 handicap guy in his day), he was distraught. My suggestion to him is that it really made little difference at the amateur level how long you hit it, the important thing was knowing how far you could hit each club. The nice thing about the XR 19 degree hybrid is that when I do my part right, I know I can count on it to travel 190 yards (I'm 68 years old, my son hits his 5 wood as far as I hit my driver 260 on my best days) most consistently. That works for me. I love my 3 XR and my 4 Diablo hybrid (actually my most reliable club until I get to the 6 iron.
I'm a Callaway guy all the way-clubs, balls, hats, golf bags, even a pullover. I'm seldom that loyal to any product, so that speaks volume for my trust in your products

Distance and feel
Not a great player but feel these new fitted hybrids are another major step on the way.
Increased length and control plus the sound and feel are awesome. added 30 yards to my hybrids.
Who needs a Fairway wood.... lol
