CALL­AWAY XR 16 OS

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.call­away­golf.com Lofts: 3/19°, 4/22°, 5/25°, 6/28°, 7/31°

Stock shaft: Mit­subishi Fubuki AT

Ad­justable hosel: No

TECH: De­signed for ex­treme for­give­ness, high launch, max­i­mum ball speeds and dis­tance. A forged hy­per cup face main­tains high ball speeds no mat­ter where shots are hit on the face.

WE SAY: How many times have we been told wider-body clubs im­prove MOI and ball speed per­for­mance? Well the OS data com­pletely backs that up. Thanks to the wider head the OS pro­tected ball speed along­side the very best on test. It was one of the high­est-launch­ing and fly­ing hy­brids which means ex­cel­lent drop-and-stop ca­pa­bil­ity on the greens. Post­ing our joint long­est av­er­age carry (222m) is se­ri­ously im­pres­sive.

VER­DICT: An ex­cel­lent hy­brid that de­liv­ers the ex­tra ball speed and dis­tance the ma­jor­ity of golfers need. Our test pro thought 80% of golfers would be bet­ter off with a wide body hy­brid like the OS com­pared to a nar­rower bod­ied model.
