Callaway launches extension to Steelhead XR family
With new Steelhead XR Pro Irons
Words: Daniel Owen Photography: Callaway Golf
Callaway Golf is introducing a new addition to their hugely successful Steelhead XR family with the launch of the new Steelhead XR Pro Irons.
The new Steelhead XR Pro Irons are packed with the same technology as the Steelhead XR Irons, but feature a more compact head with a thinner top line and narrower sole width. A sleek, non–glare black PVD finish also gives these Steelhead XR Pro Irons a great look.
Combining this, with the key technology features outlined below, means Callaway has added a player’s iron to the Steelhead XR family that delivers a fine combination of speed, forgiveness, distance and shot–shaping control.
More Speed and Distance from Next-Generation 360 Face Cup™ Technology
Increases ball speed with greater efficiency on both centre hits and mishits for more distance on every swing.
Consistent Launch and Better Feel from Steel-Infused Polyurethane Layer
Absorbs unwanted vibration for great feel. Integrating steel into the urethane adds weight to lower the head’s Centre of Gravity for faster ball speed and consistent launch.
More Forgiveness from Hollow Bore-Thru Hosel Design
Hollow Bore-Thru hosel design saves significant weight that’s repositioned in strategic places in the head to create more forgiveness and workability.
More Control and Distance from Progressive Centre of Gravity Positioning
Positioned strategically in each iron to promote consistent launch and long carry in the long irons, great workability and control in the middle irons, and lower and high spinning shots in the short irons.
The stock shaft offering is True Temper XP 105 Stepless Steel in Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff, whilst a wide array of premium aftermarket steel and graphite shafts and grips will also be available.
The irons are offered from 3-AW with an RRP of £759 and in-store across Europe from 17th March 2017.
