Summary: This is the first new oversized driver I've purchased. Mine has a slight draw which works perfectly with my swing (most of the time). makes an unusual "ping" sound when hit square in the sweet spot ... grown to love that sound.
Summary: Fantastic club. This Callaway is solid and long when you hit it right. Off center hits spray a little bit but, as in most of golf, it's operator error. The club sets up well and looks great at address. Probably 10 yards longer than my FT-5 that it replaced. Great addition to my bag.
Summary: This driver and callaway both rock I had a happy gilmour moment go bad at the range end with an exploded clubhead but callaway was nice enough to replace it for me custom shaft and all anyway I've been Hitting the deepest drives ever since thanks callaway
Good club for intermediate golfers still struggling to cure a slice.
10 May 2012
Summary: I have both the 11 and 10.5 loft FT-5 LH drivers. I bought this club based on golfdigest reviews for the year they came out. I have a pretty nasty slice and this club has made a world of difference allowing me to keep the ball in the fairway on a consistent basis. I favor the 10.5 over the 11 to help me control the lower flight path. It does make a difference. My previous driver was a Taylormade R5 - older club, less forgiving.
Summary: I absolutely love the FT-5. I switched over to it right when it came out and right now I average over 330 yards and on my miss hits I am still averaging over 300. I have tried alot of other drivers and I just did not feel many lived up to this club. I have had many people try this club and we've all noticed it is made for the faster swing speed and the more aggressive golfer.
