X2 Hot Deep Fairway Woods
Callaway X2 Hot 5 Deep
To be honest I was talking with a friend about this new deep series. I'm more of a Driver, 3 Wood kind of guy, after I hit the 5 Deep a few times, I changed my whole opinion. With the new 5 Deep I'm getting about 250-260 carry and 275-285 total!! Isn't that just insane with a 5 Wood!!! So needless to say I feel in love with it and at those distances I will never need a 3 Wood now! I mean really the 5 Deep is what any golfer would want. You can hit it high and land soft, hit low stingers with it, hit it off the deck, off the tee, I mean whatever you want, you can do with it!

Compared it to the taylormade mini-driver before purchase
Face size of both clubs very equal. 3 deep (14) went straighter and further both off the tee and an uphill lie off the deck.
Easier to swing as the mini-driver's club head swung "heavy". Used the 3 deep for 2 rounds and love the accuracy off the tee on 200yard+ par 3's and tight drives on short par 4's.

Off the rack, no tweaks needed...
Bought it off the rack. Hit several shots with it at the range, before heading to the course with it. Match play tourney. Used off the the tee for 8 out of 14 holes. Won match 5 and 4. +2 my own ball, great club. Part II today.

What a missle launcher
Ball comes of hot and straight to slight draw. Ball flight has a boring ball flight and long. Just seems to find the fairway with ease. Easily out performs my driver of a different brand. I am thinking about this Aldila green tour shaft for my x hot 5 wood. I will also be looking at the new X2 hot Driver as well. I just don't remember a single club improving my game so much or cause so much excitement to get back to the course. If you don't give this club a test drive you are missing out.

Who needs a driver now?

I gotten a lot of the distance I lost over the last couple of year back!
Received my X2 Hot 2 Deep 12.5 with the Oban Devotion 6 in a 04 Flex a few weeks ago and decided to wait till I played it quite a few times before writing the review and all I can still say is WOW! The first shot with it on course didn't come until #9, a 350yd par 4 fronted by water at about 240 out depending on pin placement. I normally hit my old Callaway Big Bertha Fusion 13* wood and would be 5-15 yds short of the water depending on how good I hit it, well I pulled out the 2 Deep and popped a good one(not great, just a good one) and flew it into the pond! I went to my bag to get an older ball(don't like losing the good ones) and tee'd it up and miss hit it a bit towards the toe and it hit 5-7yds short of the pond and one hopped into it. The club is GREAT off of the tee, a mid flighted bomber that fires rockets down the fairway, but I'm still having a little bit of a time getting it up off of the deck but it's gotten a lot better the more I hit it than it was to start with and even the shots I don't get up rocket off of the face and scream 15'-20' off of the ground and still go 215-220 and then get another 20-30 yds of roll. I'm a changed man after going with all Callaway (Razr Fit Extreme Driver X2 Hot Deep 12.5* 3 wood and 16.5* 4 wood) woods after using TaylorMade for 10 years. I found out the Taylormade's were punishing me on my miss hits and I'd be 5-15yds off of the fairway, but with the Callaways' I'm still in the fairway or the first cut. What a grea line of clubs Callaway has been coming out with the last few years and now I'm a Callaway fan for life! KUDO'S CALLAWAY, GREAT JOB!!! BTW I was a 15-16 handicap and I'm now just slighty over a 10 and getting ready to move to single digit. And everyone of those 5-6 strokes I took off of my handicap I credit to the Callaway woods I added to my bag starting this year.

Not for average golfers
Currently, I use Callaway, irons, driver and woods, I have purchased this one based on reviews as well as i was using x hot 3 wood (last year version). This is club is only for the teebox. NOT for the fairway. Goes left too much. 85% time miss hits. No wonder this is selling with reduced price. I think this is NOT the right fit for regular golfers.
Finally I have exchanged with regular x hot 2 3 wood. That is slightly goes right, I think I can correct that in the future.

Good driver replacement option
I purchased the X2Hot 2 Deep as a driver replacement option for when I play tighter courses. While it offers a decent amount of forgiveness this club is LONG. My first round out with it I was paired up with a guy who was hammering his driver. On average I was only 10-15 yards behind him and on several holes I was right by his ball. I opted for the Aldila Tour Blue shaft to get a higher trajectory compared to the Tour Green, but the ball flight with this club is still a bit lower than I'd prefer. That said, it's still a really solid option when I don't need to carry driver and it's nice knowing that I'm not sacrificing much distance off the tee box.
