The Callaway X460 Driver is a uniquely-balanced, all-titanium driver designed to deliver greater ball speed, deeper drives and more stability – from setup through impact. At 460cc, the Callaway X460 drivers are the largest allowable under the Rules of Golf. They combine a new CT/VFT face, a distinctly designed and patented Consistent Alignment Sole and proven and patented Callaway Golf technologies. Extensive testing at the Callaway Golf Test Center in Carlsbad, California, show the X460 to be the longest conforming all-titanium drivers Callaway Golf has ever made. The new CT/VFT face, the Company’s next-generation patented Variable Face Thickness (VFT) Technology, takes ball speed to the edge of the legal limit as defined by the United States Golf Association’s Characteristic Time (CT) test.The Callaway X460’s titanium face is robotically plasma-welded to the body, utilising a precision manufacturing process. This ensures face thickness is controlled to tight tolerances for robust performance over a larger face area. Result: more distance, more often. Another key feature of the X460 Driver is it’s distinctively designed “Consistent Alignment Sole.” At address, the subtle keels of the soleplate rest on the turf for ease in aiming the club face and stabilising the club head. And the unique configuration of the Callaway X460’s larger face area – more than 10 percent larger than the Big Bertha Titanium 454 Driver – allowed Callaway Golf engineers to move even more weight to resist twisting from heel to toe and from sole to crown. This delivers a more consistent trajectory and more accuracy off the tee. Finally, the Callaway X460 Driver features two other core Callaway Golf technologies that have helped make the Company’s drivers the choice of golfers of all skill levels for years: S2H2 (short, straight, hollow hosel) the breakthrough design that dramatically shortens the traditional hosel length, allowing weight to be moved lower and to the perimeter of the clubhead for significantly greater forgiveness; and Tru-Bore bore-through construction, which improves feel and control by extending the shaft completely through the hosel and clubhead to the sole.
Average rating for this product from 1 reviews
Although the Callaway X460 driver is only 10% bigger than the 454 predecessor, the club head does seem a lot bigger. This is due mainly to the fact that the head is slightly longer from front to bag to move the weight lower and further back. The unique design of the Callaway X460 sole does make it very 'stable' at address and you can't move the club around as much as you can with other models. The club was very forgiving across all the clubface and it was easy to shape shots and hit the ball high and low. With the increase in head size the sound at impact is a little duller than normal for a Callaway, but that is just nit-picking as the X460 driver is a very competent club from Callaway.
