Review Summary:

Callaway is a leader and a pacesetter when it comes to the manufacture of golf drivers and the company is always trying to come up with clubs that are better than what they have. For the XR 16, the company works with Boeing to give it a more aerodynamic head shape. The club head is also lighter than the Callaway drivers that come before it, but the extreme forgiveness is what golfers will love most. It uses RMOTO tech to increase the speed, and the club has a graphite shaft and a light titanium head. And you also get to choose from different shaft flex options and loft.

Features and Design

  • Forgiveness: The center of gravity of this club is Low and Back. It also has a large club head that creates an MOI with a massive footprint and all these features work together to make this the most forgiving driver from Callaway.
  • Speed: Club Speed is one of the things that define a top golf driver, but this should be the least of your worries when using the XR 16. Callaway uses next generation RMOTO Tech for the face to make it thinner than most others and it is also lighter than all the other drivers from Callaway. And so when you combine the extreme forgiveness of the clubhead and faster face you can always be confident of impressive speeds.
  • Flex: This driver has as graphite shaft, and you get to choose from three different flexes that are Stiff, Regular, and Senior.
  • Loft: Loft makes a huge difference, and it determines how well a driver will work for you. The XR 16 gives you the opportunity to choose from different loft options, and so you can be sure of finding a club that will give you impressive ball speed and distances.

Conclusion

Callaway is famous for its fantastic golf clubs, and the XR 16 continues with the trend. It is a beautiful club in appearance with some cool graphics, but there is more to the club than its appearance. The XR 16 ensures that you get impressive distances and it also has a fantastic club speed.

It has a massive sweet spot that will always make a golfer happy when they hit the face of the head, but it is also very forgiving with mishits. The steady feel and lightweight are some of the other things that golfers will love about this club. However, it also has some demerits, and they include the spin and the fact that some shots get lost in the wind. But, taking into account the positive and negative factors the bottom line is that this is a top notch driver.
