CALLAWAY XR 16 OS
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.
