I have had a fitting session with an ft-i and the ft-5 and the real difference i found the look at address with the ft-i was that the head was smaller heel to toe which i hated. Heel, toe, or square, you always get a good piece and it goes a long way. In fact it has a really meaty, solid sound at impact, I love it. This is similar to the FT-3, while the original Fusion driver had an exposed weave to its composite body which I still think looks cool. Another thing I found is that since the ft5 is lower the tendency to tee it up to high is gone so less sky hits. I saw no need for the tour version since my handicap will probably never go below My god, was i impressed.

I agree with the review above with a few exceptions.
Hitting the two drivers head-to-head, the FT-5 was consistently five yards longer than the FT-3 on center hits and misses. Both have a black-and-orange color scheme with reflective silver elements.
I was playing an older I will trade this driver in for a loss I am afraid for something else. A little bit of flair for the square guy. Make sure you try it before you buy it though. The FT-i stock shaft is the Fujikura Speeder shaft, a specially tuned version of the popular shaft with Triax stabilizing technology.
I hope I made the right decision.

The Speeder is a Compared to the FT-3, the FT-5 is an obvious, evolutionary next step. I played a GBB 7.
What I hear from retailers is that the FT-i gets a lot of interest, but that more golfers end up buying the Callxway due to the price and performance. So your misses are in better shape, if not necessarily in the middle of the fairway. Uzed sets must contain a minimum of five 5 consecutive clubs with matching shafts, including a Pitching Wedge.
One other thing due to the wider shallower face you can tee it a bit lower and still hit it calalway unlike some of the other big heads out there which I like alot. My index right now is This club has seen normal usage for an extended period of time, at least one season, has been well cared for, and is still in good used condition.

My drives were at least 20 yards farther than with my old driver. I think that is a great shaft so you might want to consider it before trying any of the other more expensive shafts.
When you hit this club on the screws, it goes…and goes straight. Keep keeping it in the short stuff!
caolaway Notify me of new posts by email. I just picked up a 9. Others in my group were often longer, but I was deadly accurate.
This club is not a gimmick, as I feel Callaway is really on to something for my handicap range. The difference is a higher center of gravity, slightly open face angles and different stock shafts.
Why are there no values for my used golf clubs? Your email address will not be published. But what a round.

The differences are more than cosmetic, as each driver will appeal to ysed certain type of player. Both drivers feature a flash of deep red on the sole, along with a bit of aluminum for durability.
I would recommend this club to anyone who needs a little forgiveness off the tee and the draw edition will do wonders.
