The Callaway X2 Hot Deep Fairway Woods are built to go deep. The new Deep Fairway Woods are an extension of last year’s X Hot 3Deep, featuring several key technology updates in a more complete lineup. Available in 2-Deep, 3-Deep and 5-Deep, these deep faced clubs are designed for players who want to predominantly hit fairway woods off the tee, with consistency and versatility off the fairway too.
They’ve raised the performance bar with a combination of distance and control.
This year, we’re bringing out X2 Hot 2-Deep, X2 Hot 3-Deep and X2 Hot 5-Deep with more volume progression through the lineup. Here are the short descriptions to give you a feel for each option:
X2 Hot 2-Deep: The focus of this club is mainly as an alternative off the tee, much like the original X Hot 3Deep. It has a larger volume head (almost 20cc bigger than the 13* X Hot 3 Deep) to give players higher MOI, and a larger face for a lot more consistency when it’s used on tee shots. You will currently find this club in Phil Mickelson’s bag.
X2 Hot 3-Deep: Relative to last year’s offering, it has a higher MOI for more consistency and also a flatter roll radius so that it launches higher off the fairway and tight lies. It’s more forgiving, with more versatility for players.
X2 Hot 5-Deep: A great choice for players who like looking at a deep face fairway wood to give them more confidence. You can use it off the tee (of course), and it delivers more spin (relative to the X2 Hot Pro FW) and control out of the fairway or rough.
5 Key Technologies Across the X2 Hot Deep line:
1. High Strength Carpenter 455 Forged Face Cup
An even deeper face design with a look that Tour players prefer, particularly when they want to use a fairway wood on tee shots. It’s built to be long and versatile from the fairway as well.
2. Hyper Speed Face Cup
The Hyper Speed Face Cup is thinner, lighter and more robust to deliver even faster ball speeds for more distance.
3. Higher MOI
Creates more consistent launch and spin. This all leads to longer, accurate shots more frequently.
4. Flatter Roll Radius
By creating a flatter roll radius, X2 Hot Fairway Woods deliver higher launch angles off fairway woods and tight lies.
5. Larger Volume Progression
We’ve developed a larger head volume progression in 2-Deep, 3-Deep and 5-Deep to give players a wider range of performance options from the lineup.
