Following an innovative, user-driven "Tweet to Unleash" social media campaign, Callaway Golf unveiled the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver, the longest fully adjustable driver the Company has ever measured.
A key feature of the new driver is the Speed Frame Face Technology which optimizes stiffness and stress distribution across the titanium face for a larger, more consistent sweet spot and increased ball speed. Among other improvements, Callaway's new driver features the lowest Center of Gravity (CG) of any adjustable driver, further fueling distance gains, and a new weighting system that offers golfers a greater range of shot shaping options. Additionally, the Speed Frame Face features a tighter bulge radius than its predecessor for a more preferred look at address, along with more consistent sidespin and dispersion.
Using its patented lightweight Forged Composite material, Callaway has managed to come up with the lightest crown in golf at only 12.1 grams, allowing them to precisely position saved weight to achieve the lowest CG in any fully adjustable driver
The OptiFit Hosel and OptiFit Weights are key to the RAZR Fit Xtreme's improved adjustability. The hosel adjusts the face angle to Open, Square or Closed positions to improve accuracy and trajectory while the 13- and 1-gram OptiFit Weights shift the clubhead's center of gravity to promote noticeable Draw or Neutral ball flights.
The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver comes in more lofts that incorporate a greater range of face angle options, CG bias options and CG height differences than the RAZR Fit Driver. Callaway has optimized the performance in each loft to suit the needs of the players that will use it. For example, the 8.5-, 9.5- and 10.5-degree clubheads are 440cc (versus 460cc for other lofts) and feature a more open face angle.
The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver will be available in January 2013 with a suggested retail price of $399.99 (US).
