Callaway Driver Comparison: X Hot N14 vs X Hot


When it comes to trying to decide on a driver within the same line of clubs, things can be difficult and differences can sometimes blend together. While both the Callaway X Hot and X Hot N14 drivers share some of the same features, there are still some key differences to keep in mind when trying to select the best fit for you. Let’s take a look at the main features and benefits of both.

X Hot N14 Driver

The Callaway X Hot N14 driver can be best described as a scaled down version of the X Hot driver. The N14 driver features Callaway’s Speed Face connected to a lightweight, 460cc all titanium designed club head. This thin face delivers excellent ball speed due to a large sweet spot and increased forgiveness. Additionally, the internal club weighting helps reduce side spin on hooks and slices while producing a high launch, low-spin characteristic for optimal ball flight. It features the same grey color crown of the X Hot, but the face has a traditional steel color. Finally, it has a fixed hosel design with a fixed loft and no adjustability.

  • It’s easy to swing and has updated technology for delivering more distance and accuracy compared to what may be in the bag now.
  • This is a great choice for the weekend golfer that isn’t trying to break the bank.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Callaway X Hot driver is a fully adjustable, lightweight, 460cc driver built to deliver fast ball speeds and an aggressive ball flight for maximum distance and forgiveness. The Opti-Fit hosel technology used in this driver allows you to adjust the clubface to an open, square, or closed position to reduce the side spin generated by your mishits or traditional side-to-side trajectory, whether it is a slice, face, hook, or draw. If you adjust the clubface to open or closed, you’ll also change the effective loft of the driver. The loft will be higher (if on a Closed setting) or lower (if on an Open setting) from the standard loft written on the club. The Speed Frame Technology incorporates variable face thickness with a hyperbolic face pattern to create a larger sweet spot which increases ball speeds across the entire face for longer, straighter, and more consistent distance. The overall weight of the club head of the X Hot driver was reduced by using an Ultra-Thin Wall casting design, which is the thinnest technology Callaway has ever used in a driver. The paint design of the club features a dark grey crown with a black colored face, which aids in aligning the clubface to your intended target.

  • Take advantage of the shot-shaping adjustability and next generation face technology to increase distance and impact ball flight.
  • This is the perfect fit for a large majority of golfers, from single digit to high handicappers alike.
