Features and customization
Callaway has found the right way to address golfers` needs. They manufactured options for both right-handed and left handed players and have made it a priority to have a choice of men`s and women`s irons. Callaway has managed to use some of the most recognized technologies to provide the Steelhead XR irons the best possible user experience.
Another unique and innovative feature is given by the use of the Steel Infused Polyurethane Layer. This technology follows the trend of lowering the center of gravity. This has been done using various methods. For the Steelhead XR irons, Callaway has used a steel-infused soft urethane layer positioned, as expected, in the lower section of the face. The result of this weight redistribution is the improved center of gravity which is now lower.
By lowering the center of gravity, the manufacturer managed to increase performance. In theory, you can expect better long-range results with less force. Bu the lower center of gravity with the Steel Infused Polyurethane Layer also comes to improve vibrations. When you hit the ball you can expect fewer vibrations, even on off-center shots. This is turn improves the mechanics of the ball movement for a smoother, consistent air flow. But fewer vibrations can also mean the comfort level of the golfer is increased.
There is less force sent into the shaft which increases overall steadiness and comfort. Judging by the use of these technologies together, Callaway has found that reducing vibrations can work together with lowering the center of gravity for improved performance. Reduce vibrations also means that consolidation of the products in the niche of advanced and professional players which can benefits the most from these fine tuning. The reduced vibrations also allowed for the development of other engineering techniques, such as the hollow hosel.
Some of the most innovative features of the Callaway Steelhead XR series come with further improved technologies. The reduced vibrations allow the hollowing of the hosel which improves the overall playing experience. If you are an advanced or professional player you would benefit the most from these models. New players can also use the XR series as the level of forgiveness is also improved and comes with easier launch.
