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
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 with steel and graphite shafts.
X-Hybrid product line is a bit less expensive, retailing with steel and
graphite shafts. 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
clubs are the least expensive in the Callaway hybrid golf clubs product
line, selling with steel shafts and 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.
should be noted that all three members of the Callaway hybrid golf club
product lines are available in womenís versions. Of course there are
differences from the menís offerings described above, and these can be
easily seen by visiting the companyís web site.
