So who better to poll to get an initial indication of the best performing drivers so far in ? As George loosened up, however, his slice turned into a gentle fade. Shawn Aug 13, at 2: One fitting doesnt give all the answers. Overall though, great driver, but for same price as Titleist with this shaft, that gets beat in every way to me.

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.

However, that is a very minor complaint. It also features an advanced OptiFit hosel that allows golfers to adjust the loft and directional bias from draw to neutral. It was early morning and not enough coffee!

It also helped him eliminate his miss to the right and optiofrce execute his preferred right-to-left ball flight. Well, that’s all I have to say about this driver. Finding the right shaft was a faster process that Chris expected. The final piece of the Optiforce designed involved further reducing the club’s weight by pairing it with premium, lightweight shaft options. Guess we all know who is paying who to say what.

The Story Behind Callaway’s FT Optiforce Driver – Golfalot

Does anyone know if a Razr Fit shaft wil fit in an Optiforce head? The head is faster through the air and the feel, sound and forgiveness are out of the top drawer.


Even at a higher loft, he was able to reduce his spin rate an average of rpm. The guy selling the shaft a had similar problem, except this shaft was too stiff for him.

As I said earlier, I use to use one of those big, ugly square things that sounded like you were at a college baseball game when it was it. It seems that Callaway is starting to go back that way already, as they have introduced a third line of drivers, the FT Optiforce. The reason is the TW74 has 2.

Long and straight all day long. But overall, a classy-looking club. The driver can also be set to neutral or draw, which makes the lie angle of the driver more upright and encourages a more leftward starting trajectory for right-handed golfers. He tried several low-launching shafts that proved to have too little torque for his optifroce, exacerbating his rightward miss. At least if they are a mid-handicapper with 90mph-ish swings like me. The ball seems ooptiforce jump off the face and the sound at impact is among the best out there right now.

This allowed Callaway to modify everything from the head size, moment of inertia, center of gravity position, weight and even bulge radius to produce optimal conditions across the loft options in each head. Just a note, for me its the oppossite, optiforce is straight like an arrow, sldr had the hights sound ever but not much of it resulted in distance.

Once optkforce M2 Smooth ezy to launch, Acccccurate, lite draw! However, the hosel has been upgraded for the Optiforce. Did he want to continue to chase more distance or did he want a driver that would help him hit more fairways? Bought Razr Hawk 4400 for a punt! The shaft is an inch vt than usual at 45 inches, but did not feel that way at address or when swinging.


Especially with thethe driver almost felt too light until I actually took my first swing. I do want readers to keep in mind that this was a one-person test and I hit a limited amount of balls.

The was significantly longer yards with my measly swing speed. It also has a slightly higher centre of gravity making it an easy launch club that creates a slightly higher flying shot, compared to the smaller headed option.

Today’s Golfer

Unlike the Titleist driver, both rings rotate on opitforce shaft instead of just one so those of you who like the shaft logo in a certain place or to align the shaft for technical reasons can do so.

Cleveland had the same lightweight fad a couple of years back, introducing the same ct but with different overall weights of, and grams. Both clubs, once I dialed in the launch conditions, outperform my current gamer in total carry.
