Summary: I purchased the driver because it was a 9.5 degree as I was getting to much height from my 10.5 I did not know how much I would love it. It has straighten out my fade and added about 20 yards to my drives. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH IT. I would not accept 4 times the amount I paid for it.
Great for golfers wanting a straight, high shot, great value for money

Summary: I have the 13 degree driver and I love it. As a beginner golfer it was great. I get constant flight, its always straight even though I manage to normally slice the ball when using other drivers. Distance is average but this club is not so much about distance as it is about accuracy. For a very amateur golfer the ball lands in the middle of the airway every time and thats why I brought it. The shaft and grip are both fantastic.
Summary: Okay, I want to say this is not the longest driver I've hit. It isn't the best looking nor is it the newest driver out there. Matter-of-fact, it is a few model cycles behind the newest offerings from Callaway. So, what is so great about it? I am nearly always in the fairways and that is about 270-280 yds. from the tee box. Ball flight? It takes off like a Saturn V rocket and climbs to a huge arching point then lands softly.
Summary: Have only tried the club at the driving range,(Michigan). Took the FT-IQ and my Taylormade 2009 Burner Draw. Got a medium bucket,, 60 balls. Hit about 40 with the Callaway. All went dead straight or a slight draw when hit anywhere near the center. Hit one slice, but that was right on the toe. Very happy with the ball flight, sound and feel of the club. Like all Callaway clubs, you need a smooth swing.
Confidently drop handicap. See the short grass. End mis-hits!

Summary: Bought a 13 degree FT-IQ with the Bassara 43 A (lite flex shaft for my wife. She has a lovely, smooth, fluid swing and is a great driver with her 11 degree FT-9 and Fubuki 60 reg flex shaft but was dogged by a slice/fade that was putting her in the right side of the fairway too much. The light and powerful Bassara shaft allows her to square the club face at impact and has taken the slice out of her game.
Summary: This club marks the peak of technological growth in drivers. It's as good as any driver made in the last 5 years. Being able to alter loft and lie with a hosel adjustment is nice, but a gimmick. You know that they've run out of ideas when they paint the head white and try to pass it off as an 'improvement.' The Nike SQ series is pretty much the same thing, but both clubs, hell, all clubs depend on a quality shaft for success.
Summary: I am a new golfer at age 66. I did quite a bit of research into drivers that would help me play and enjoy this challenging game. This club has given me confidence in my ability to drive the ball off the tee and straight down the fairway. I was initially concerned about the non-tradition shape but the effectiveness of this driver has long since put that concern behind me. I like the weight, the feel, and the result of using this driver.
