The Callaway Super Hybrid is unlike anything that golf has ever seen. This club is a true cross between a hybrid and a fairway wood.
If you don’t enjoy carrying fairway woods, but you want the longest possible hybrid on the market, the Super Hybrid will be there to save the day.
The new Callaway Super Hybrid brings superior distance and ball flight to players of all levels. This club has had some rave reviews, and we had to try it for ourselves.
We hope this Callaway Super Hybrid review gives you a better idea as to if this club is right for your golf bag.
Features and Benefits
The Super Hybrid is easy to hit, easy to launch, and incredibly long. If you are a player who enjoys any of these things, you could greatly benefit from making an equipment change at this point.
The one problem that some players have with this club is that it is a very low spin. If you don’t generate a lot of spin in your golf swing, this is one of those hybrids that will run forever once it lands. This can be a good or a bad thing, but it’s essential to be aware.
Since this option is highly adjustable, you can set it; however, you need to make it work for your game. You can adjust the face of this club to work as a neutral, fade, or draw to help if you struggle to keep the ball straight.
If you also have trouble with the launch angle, you will soon be seeing a much better ball flight with the Callaway.
The Callaway Super Hybrid is still being manufactured by Callaway so that you can get a variety of custom shafts.
However, the stock shaft, the Mitsubishi Tensei CK, is available in the Stiff, Regular and Light Flex options. This is a top of the line shaft that will work well for a vast majority of players.
You will likely not find a larger hybrid on the market. This club is almost as big as a fairway metal. It provides a huge sweet spot for off-center hits and allows some of the highest ball speed on the market.
For a club that looks this big, you may assume that it is also going to be quite loud. Surprisingly the Super Hybrid sounds just like iron when hit.
The Super Hybrids have a great feel, but they are not going to allow you as much workability as a players club might. You will have a hard time missing with this club, but when you can get distance comparable to a 3 wood out of your hybrid, it is hard to complain.
The Callaway Super Hybrid comes in a 17 degree, a 20 degree, and a 23-degree model. You will find that the higher lofted hybrids have a bit more forgiveness than the lower lofted.
The 17-degree option is going to be a bit harder to hit than the others, but we believe it is still easier out of a bad lie than a fairway wood would be.
The Super Hybrid is expensive. Priced higher than almost any other hybrid on the market, you will be paying for that ball speed, but it will likely be very much worth it.
The Callaway Super Hybrid has some key features that all golfers should be aware of. Let’s face it this is one of the most expensive hybrids on the market. If you are not sure this is right for you, it’s very important to understand and research the technology. The more you know about this golf club, the easier it will be to justify the pricing.
Fairway Wood Like Distance
A golf hybrid is often thought of as being forgiving and convenient, but it is not always known specifically for the distance. However, with the new Callaway Super Hybrid, distance is quite strong because of the titanium construction. The club head has fairway wood like qualities, but you can still get the forgiveness you need from the rough.
It may be a while before Callaway gives up on the Jailbreak technology. With all of the advancements through the years, the Jailbreak seems to make it from one season to the next. The Jailbreak Bars inside the Callaway Super Hybrid help to keep the face still but still allow for a trampoline-like effect at impact.
Titanium Face Insert
The titanium face insert is truly the feature that helps to increase the ball speed tremendously. As the ball speed increases, golfers can get a tremendous amount of distance. If you have ever felt that you cannot get the distance you want from your hybrids, the Callaway Super Hybrid can help fix this for you.
Center of Gravity
The center of gravity on the Callaway Super Hybrid is low. The lower center of gravity increases the overall ball flight and the accuracy that the club can offer. The Super Hybrid is a club that works well for the mid to high handicap player, and the moving around of the center of gravity is one important way to ensure that this happens. In addition, the new tungsten weighting is a great way to increase the overall feel and playability.
Pros & Cons of Callaway Super Hybrid
As with all golf clubs that are new to the market, there will be some positives and negatives involved. The Callaway Super Hybrid is equipped with quite a few positives, but there are some negatives that golfers need to consider as well. Fully analyzing these positives and negatives helps to ensure you are going to end up with the proper golf club for your needs.

- The Center of gravity is low and in the center
- Jailbreak bars for better face flexibility

If you are still unsure that the Super Hybrid is for you, there are some other great options on the market right now that could be just as good of a fit.
We will warn you from the start that none of them tend to be as long as the Callaway.
Callaway Mavrik Hybrid
- Priced lower
- Just as forgiving
- Not quite as long
The Callaway Mavrik is a new release that came out at the same time as the Super. This is a very forgiving club offered at a lower price point.
There is no question that the Mavrik is a long golf hybrid, in fact, one of the longest on the market, but it does not quite compare to the length of the Supers.
The flash face technology and jailbreak bars make this a really difficult one to miss. The shaft options in the Mavrik range from the Project X Catalyst to the UST Helium.
You can get this hybrid in whatever combination you need to succeed. It is available in 3, 4, 5, and 6.
TaylorMade Sim Max Hybrid
- Priced a bit lower
- Extremely forgiving
- Long, and available in lots of lofts
- Smaller club head that some may not like
Another brand new and high performing release is the TaylorMade Sim Max. The Sim Max has ball speeds that will compare to the Callaway Super.
We love that the TaylorMade is offered in so many lofts. It comes with the Fujikura Ventus Blue Shaft, and you will see some significant improvements in feel from the previous M6 version that TaylorMade has released.
The SIM Max has an ultra-strong steel face that the ball tends to launch off of. This is not an adjustable option, so you will need to choose a model that works for your swing right from the start.
If you struggle with hitting a fairway wood and a long iron, you can fill your bag with the SIM Max clubs and make golf much easier on yourself. With the twist face technology, TaylorMade makes it hard to miss, with this thing in your hands.
Cobra Speedzone Hybrid
- Priced lower
- Very forgiving
- Plenty of lengths
- Not adjustable
Similar to the SIM MAX and Mavrik, the Speedzone is designed to help players increase ball speed.
The Cobra features the baffler rail technology that Cobra has perfected through the years. Regardless of the lie you try and hit this out of; it will respond and perform at a very high level.
The Speedzone is not an adjustable option. The center of gravity is low, and in the center, so you will be able to get plenty of launch and forgiveness.
Overall the Speedzone makes some significant improvements on the F9 Speedback from 2019.
Callaway Epic Super Hybrid
- High ball speed
- Powerful launch
- Plenty of adjustability
- Premium components
- Priced almost as high as a driver
Since the release of the Callaway Super Hybrid, the entire line of Epic golf clubs has come to the market. The Epic clubs are designed to be faster and better than any previous Callaway club. If you purchased the 2020 Super Hybrid and compare it to the Callaway Epic Super Hybrid the differences are minimal. However, if you look back a few years and consider the differences since then, this may be an upgrade worth considering.
The Callaway Super Hybrid is one of the highest performing golf clubs that has ever been made. To get fairway type distance from a club that is easier to manage and handle is genuinely remarkable.
If you are in the market for a new favorite hybrid golf club, this could be the one.
