I get about the same distance with the same swing but with much less accuracy and always, a pronounced fade, regardless of my set up. Both drivers feature a flash of deep red on the sole, along with a bit of aluminum for durability. The ball is so hot of the face it is unreal.

I think that is a great shaft so you might want to consider it before trying any of the other more expensive shafts.

Callaway FT-5 Draw Driver Reviews – Golf Club Reviews – Golfbidder

I played a GBB 7. This leads to a bit more roll and overall distance.

The 9 Degree Stiff, Draw version seemed to fit my swing better than the Neutral, which had a more consistent slice. Well worth the money. I fusuon about the same distance with the same swing but with much less accuracy and always, a pronounced fade, regardless of my set up. Changed it to the FT-5 and aint looked back. Where the driver is very corrective is on high and low misses.

Callaway FT-i/FT-5 Driver Review

The FT-5 right looks larger at xallaway than the FT-3 left despite having the same clubhead volume. I agree with alot of the other reviews about this ft-i ballooning the ball in the air.


I have been having difficulty using a driver for some time, instead using a 3 wood off the tee to avoid costly slices fksion hooks. I would recommend this club to anyone who needs a little forgiveness off the tee and the draw edition will do wonders.

The FT-i draw is absolutely amazing. The FT-5 headcover left has a long sock attachment, while the FT-i headcover right is shorter and has a magnetic closure. The sound at impact is better, with a louder metallic smack and only the slight hint of the plastic sound that plagued the original Fusion driver and lingered a bit with the FT Never got it going.

The FT-i is the driver many people are curious about, and I was excited to give it a try. The use of titanium and carbon combine to form a composite which save a massive 50gms of discretionary weight. Probably just the improved confidence I guess. As a better than average golger I gave the new Callaway a tryout.

Both Tour versions have a small Callaway chevron the V-shaped logo on the face to help set them apart from dallaway standard versions. But know going in that the FT-i design fusioon keep your ball in play, but not produce miraculous distance on bad swings. I was killing the ball with the Ft-i last weekend, outdriving the other in my foursome by 30 — 40 yards consistently.

I hope that it plays like most of the reviews say. The draw bias allows me to really slug the ball and maintain great controll re-gaining the minimum loss of distance.


More consistent and slightly further – the old X was still a good driver. If you can get fit into the right setup to eliminate some of the distance loss on off-center hits and get a hotter ball flight, the FT-i could be a real distance monster. Make sure you try it before you buy it though. I shot a 41 for 9 holes with the FTi as I hit 6 of 9 fairways and had good fairway shots to the green. The amount of material used in the titanium cup-face area appears to have been reduced, as the cup area extends less into the sole and crown areas than it does on the FT It still ended up in the fairway, callawayy my driving distance was only yards.

I used to have an FT3 driver which I exchanged for a G10 driver a year ago.

I saw no need for the tour version since my handicap will probably never go below Thanks to some expert advice I purchased the FT5 and it has been the best piece of advice I have ever had. On order, so stay tuned for my review.
