|The Callaway FT-5 Driver is a titanium cup-face and carbon-composite body combine for a near-traditional shape. The lightweight frame enabled designers to move the center of gravity for the neutral, draw and fade versions. Callaway uses a 25-gram weight in the sole to lower the center of gravity.|
Callaway FT-5 Driver Description
FT-5 and FT-5 Tour Drivers are the latest evolution in clubhead design utilizing the revolutionary Fusion Technology. A huge 50 grams of discretionary weight has been created using a Carbon Fiber Body â€” creating the OptiFit Weighting System that produces three center of gravity configurations: Draw, Neutral and Fade, enabling golfers to choose a combination to best suit their individual game. The larger, more robust CT/VFT Titanium cup face is designed to the legal limit, as defined by the USGA Characteristic Time test, resulting in increased ball speed, distance and forgiveness â€” even on miss-hits. The FT-5 Tour Driver has a slightly open face for a look preferred by more accomplished players. The end result is exceptional distance, performance, confidence and accuracy.
The Fusion Technology
Proprietary Fusion Technology creates an unprecedented 50 grams of discretionary weight which is strategically positioned for a high Moment of Inertia and precise lateral location of the center of gravity. This provides exceptional stability on off-center hits, while enabling ball flight customization for optimal individual performance. The 25-gram weight located at the rear of the driver lowers the CG for optimal trajectory.
Enables golfers to customize their driver by giving them three CG locations to choose from in most lofts: Draw for promoting a draw or reducing a slice/fade; Neutral for maximum workability; or Fade for promoting a fade or reducing a hook/draw.
The CT/VFT Titanium Cup Face
Modified version of VFTÂ® Technology in which face thicknesses are designed specifically to maximize performance under the new USGA Characteristic Time test, resulting in a larger, more robust face for increased ball speed on shots hit all over the face.
The 460cc head design
460cc head volume is incorporated with a longer, wider and hotter face for more confidence at address, a higher MOI and increased ball speed for longer, straighter drives.
|The Carbon Composite Body
Materials used to make the body is significantly lighter than titanium, allowing Callaway Golf engineers to move 50 grams of discretionary weight where it is needed most, resulting in better stability and distance.
