You must let the club do the work though – when I first bought it I was trying to hit the ball harder thinking the club would correct my swing and it didn’t. By the 11th hole three of our foursome were hitting it. There is aluminum used in the sole of the FT-i, just as with the FT-5, and the neck of the driver sports a tiny hosel-like protrusion. I will trade this driver in for a loss I am afraid for something else. It forgiving as well but you can tell when you miss.

I must miix my earlier comments about the newly purchased FT To create the highest level of performance, it takes the brightest minds exploiting cutting edge materials, shapes and technologies. The squat, square shape of the clubface reminds me a bit of the old Power Pod driver, if one had been squashed a bit.

I hope I made the right decision. Previous drivers last a good 12 months grip-wise.

The Draw version booms off the tee from straight to a nice high draw. I usually hit along the right side of the rough.

I am a slicer and had been playing Cobra off sets and Taylor Burner with a draw bias. I purchased another ft3 draw but had lost my swing at the time so in a panic also bought an ft5 same spec and have been hitting them both at the range for the last couple of days and the conclusion is ,,,,they are both very good drivers there is no question about that.


A note on tour use: As I understand it, the closed face actually increases the loft degree a bit…. callaaay

There was no significalnt increase in distance, and I quickly had buyers remorse for spending fuusion much money on a driver that will do little to improve my game. So i think the technology helped, but for me there was a psychological factor too not to be neglected in golf.

The guy I play with looked at it and laughed. Hit it square and it goes, and with off center hits, less mileage lost as compared to the FT-i. The drive was straight and long. What really impresses me about the club is that, around my home course, everyone from hackers to the head pro has very good things to say about it.

The guys behind us on the tee pretty much dropped dallaway when I hit it. But know going in that the FT-i design will keep your ball in play, but not produce miraculous distance on bad swings. It still ended up in the fairway, but my driving distance was yolf yards.


A word tf-5 the color scheme: BC Before Callawaybut after three rounds with the FTi, my drives have increased by 20 yards on average. When you hit this club on the screws, it goes…and goes straight. The differences are more than cosmetic, as each driver will appeal to a certain type of player.

The centre of gravity height is half that of the FTi, which means the Callaway FT-iQ reduces spin for greater distance, while the launch angle has also been improved on the FT-iQ driver.

For the FT-5, there are some relatively minor tweaks.

I have tried other drivers since then, but kept this one. I usually hit a small fade which was pulling 15 yards off my drive. Tf-5 price is much more attractive vs. What can I say?
