I mean that the Callaway FT-9 Tour is a brilliant club even if it feels like it was released ten years ago… but it takes time to find out which drivers are really great and which is just good or ok.

On the head, the black and red graphics on the crown, primary and secondary surfaces all tie together to create a sense of motion even when the driver is just sitting in your bag. Callaways latest offerings are much better than the TaylorMade offerings. Desmond Aug 10, at 9: For the first time Callaway have optifrce a light 43 gram Project X shaft as a stock option that performed very well and was light, stable and provided a good level of feel. Both shafts are available as stock options with either head in several flexes — 5.
Callaway launches new Mack Daddy 4 wedges.
As George loosened up, however, his slice turned into a gentle fade. Flight was high and for me, a little spinny. The former college golfer, now 34, has an ability to consistently contact drives in the center of the club face.
Published 2 years ago on Mar 6, My usual fault had been considerable heel hits, whereas for some unknown reason, pure centre or slight toe mishits are all I can get with this.

Cleveland had the same optifirce fad a couple of years back, introducing the same model but with different overall weights of, and grams. Manufactured by Grafalloy, the Project X Velocity weighing just 43g, is a slightly modified version stronger in the tip of the Project X Velocity 39g shaft that the company has been promoting on Tour.
I would like to give the Optiforce driver full marks as I do like playing with it, but a couple of things hold me back.

I agree, the Hit’em long and straight. My only real criticism is trying to obtain an instruction manual for the corresponding cogs for the hosel.
