On the driving range at last week’s Frys.com Open, Colt Knost tested Callaway Golf’s first fully adjustable driver, the RAZR FIT.
Competitors like TaylorMade and Titleist have already released fully adjustable drivers, but Callaway hopes to prove that being first is not always best.
Like the latest Titleist and TaylorMade offerings, the RAZR FIT includes an interchangeable shaft connection, as well as an adjustable hosel that allows golfers to set the face angle as either opened, square or closed. It also features two moveable weight ports that can be changed to either neutral and draw settings.
The driver’s modest grey crown masks Callaway’s Forged Composite Technology, a material that is lighter and stronger than titanium and allows for better weight optimization in the 440cc clubhead.
Forged Composite Technology is a staple of Callaway’s 2011 RAZR HAWK driver that has been a hit among Callaway staff members like Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els.
Photos indicated that Knost was testing a 10.5 degree model, with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI shaft. (Click here for more pictures and discussion.)
The RAZR FIT driver is part of Callaway’s 2012 lineup that will include RAZR FIT fairway woods. It will be available in 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 degree lofts, and is expected to retail for $399 with a 45.5 inch Aldila RIP NV Shaft. – Zak Kozuchowski, GolfWRX Staff Writer
