The return of an icon with modern power (Shared from GolfPunk)

Callaway has launched the Steelhead XR Fairway Woods, a modern and powerful interpretation of the iconic shape that made the original Steelhead one of the best–selling fairway woods of all time.

Engineered with a modern Hawkeye Sole, it has been re-contoured to increase versatility and smooth turf interaction to promote a clean, square contact from every type of lie. Steelhead XR features a steel face, a 6–gram J–36 carbon crown (20g lighter than the previous XR Fairway crowns), and a low and forward CG, promoting easy launch and low spin, like the original model.
