Callaway Hybrid Golf Clubs - Articles Surfing

There are three different product lines in the Callaway hybrid golf clubs lineup. These align with their sets of woods and irons. They are the FT-Hybrids, X-Hybrids, and Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrid lines. The attributes of each will be discussed separately.

FT-Hybrids
These clubs fit into the Fusion Technology line in which different materials are fused together to alter the club head characteristics. In this way weight can be redistributed to achieve certain goals. More weight is placed around the periphery of the club to both lower the center of gravity (CG) and place it farther back in the club head. This makes for more forgiving off-center hits and allows the ball to get into the air easier. One distinguishing feature of the FT-Hybrid line is the opportunity to choose hybrids with a hook bias. This helps golfers who slice the ball most or all of the time to hit straighter shots. This is an option on some of the clubs offered and will be discussed in more detail shortly. Other distinguishing features in Callaway hybrid golf clubs are VFT and S2H2 technologies. VFT stands for Variable Face Technology, and this makes the face thicker in the center and creates more distance. S2H2 takes weight out of the hosel which is redistributed to the club head perimeter. S2H2 means short, straight, hollow, hosel. Five different clubs are available, 1-5H, although the 1H is not produced in a left-handed version. The draw bias option is available in the 2-4H clubs as is a neutral version. The 5H only comes in the draw option and thus there is no neutral version for that club. There are a number of standard graphite shafts to choose from, and of course the clubs can be made with steel shafts. The FT-Hybrid line is the most expensive, and the clubs retail for $179 with steel shafts and $199 with graphite.

X-Hybrids
The X-Hybrid product line is a bit less expensive, retailing for $139 with steel shafts and $159 with graphite. Both the VFT and S2H2 technologies described above are utilized in the X-Hybrids as well. These clubs also have a unique sole design which is meant to cut through tall grass in rough areas easier. The clubs also have perimeter weighting and a low and deep center of gravity. Four clubs are available, 2-5H, but the 5H is not made for lefties. A good selection of standard graphite shafts can be chosen from as well as a standard Callaway brand steel shaft.

Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids
These clubs are the least expensive in the Callaway hybrid golf clubs product line, selling for $99 with steel shafts and $129 with graphite. Some of the core Callaway technologies are in this clubs as well, like S2H2. The clubs use a modified War Bird sole and have an elongated and low-profile face which is said to inspire a confident feel. They also feature a high Moment of Inertia, which helps with off-center hits. There are a lot of clubs offered in this line, 1-7H, so one could eliminate most irons except for 8, 9 and wedges. Left handed versions are only available in 2-5H, however. Once again there are a half dozen standard graphite shafts to choose from, as well as a Callaway designed steel shaft.

It should be noted that all three members of the Callaway hybrid golf club product lines are available in women's versions. Of course there are differences from the men's offerings described above, and these can be easily seen by visiting the company's web site.
