Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero driver has lowest CG company has ever created in a driver

Callaway Golf’s new XR 16 Sub Zero driver will be available April 15 with a suggested retail price of $449.99. Callaway says the XR 16 Sub Zero “represents the lowest Center of Gravity we’ve ever engineered’’ in a driver. The 440cc driver will only be offered in a loft of 9.5 degrees, so it’s basically aimed at better players with higher swing speeds.

Callaway says it used a new proprietary Carbon Triax Crown in the XR 16 Sub Zero – the lowest carbon crown ever to redistribute weight below the neutral axis – then added two interchangeable weights in the head (10g and 2g) to fine tune the launch and spin needed to maximize distance.

For example, according to the company, a player can move the heavy weight forward for the lowest spinning, flattest trajectory or move the heavy weight back to promote a slightly higher trajectory and more forgiveness. A player also can choose from 20 premium, no upcharge shafts to your swing speed.
