Open at Oakmont Journal: Now I haven’t given this club 5 stars as a it’s quite expensive and b I think the grip is awful. In fact it has a really meaty, solid sound at impact, I love it. Bought my FT-5 last season, and continue to like it. But know going in that the FT-i design will keep your ball in play, but not produce miraculous distance on bad swings. Again, I swing about MPH on the radar.

This may bother some better players who want more feedback at impact. Bought the FT-i 9 degree with a Graphite Design stiff shaft. My god, was i impressed. The club was pricey which makes the results I am getting a bit saltier. Of course, only an opinion; but consider saving dollars of your money. The FT-5 right looks larger at address than the FT-3 left despite having the same clubhead volume. The sound of the FT-i was loud but not offensive, and the feel was uniformly meaty on every shot no matter where on the face the ball was struck.
Callaway FT-i/FT-5 Driver Review (Clubs, Review) – The Sand Trap
If you can get fit into the right setup to eliminate some of the distance loss on gt-5 hits and get a hotter ball flight, the FT-i could be a real distance monster.
The only thing I can deduce is that the lighter weight in comparison to my old driver was causing me to close the face of the FT at impact.
More refinements More refinements First, the composite body on each has been painted glossy black to match the top of goolf cup face area, making it look like a traditional driver instead of a multi-material affair.
What can I say? Just put a nice tempo swing on fueion and this club works really well. The drive was straight and long. There’s also the glaring fact that when you pay this much for a driver, the grip should be much better.
Ratings out of imkx We take actual images of the item you are buying! I must retract my earlier comments about the newly purchased FT I highly recommend that shaft if your in that speed range. I did also notice that on mishits the ball was no where near as long a regular drives.
Hook and shank have officially been erased from my vocab!!!! Bought my FT-5 last season, and continue to like it.
Callaway FT-IQ Driver
Its Hyperbolic Face Technology creates We also cannot declare the item as a gift. I am consistently hitting flight drives. For the FT-5, there are some relatively minor tweaks. That said, clean shots travelled yards for me. I just picked one up and I gained 25 yards carry. The only thing that could be tweaked is the sound, too much like an aluminum baseball bat, but hey I can live with it based on the performance. High handicappers might alternately be glad that every shot will feel good, even if their swing was bad.
So now, onto my rating.
I bought a new FTi after demoing one during callaaay scramble. Better than other drivers including hi-boreXL, titleist d series, nike sumo and Taylor made quad. I am not an avid golfer and have a swing speed of about But while off- center hits go generally in a good direction, they lose a fair bit of distance.
