Summary: This was Callaway's premiere driver back in 2002. The driver head is 360 cc, which is small by today's standards, but when the ball is hit on the sweet spot, it drives as long as any driver out there. The driver head is carbon composite, so the sound at impact is not the same as titanium drivers, and it takes some getting used to.
Summary: i bought a callaway driver and i was impressed in the quality of the product i which i received it was AAAA+ its a very nice hitting driver i would recomend it for the exspericend golfer i have no complaints about it i would like to buy another one as a back up
Summary: I'm a 3 handicap and play alot of golf. I bought this club and instantly loved the trajectory. It's straight, but without alot of pop. I could not figure out why there were so many different opinions. I think it's a great club if you swing smooth and want to hit alot of fairways.
Conclusion: I am a high handicapper when I don’t get the chance to play often. When I play weekly it gets down to mid teens. I used to use a Nike Ignite 450 9’ and hit fairly long, not terribly accurate. I was lucky enough to get the last new 9’stiff flex at demo pricing ($150!) of the FTiQ and have come to love it. I had trouble at first, think I was trying too hard, but have now started to get used to being on the fairway more often than not.
Conclusion: As a high handicapper who plays with a social club on different courses every 2 weeks I was really struggling to get decent drives away. My wife bought me a tour version 10 deg with imix regular shaft. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I have been using it now for 6 months so around 10 rounds of golf, my drives are longer, and definately straighter, I can get a slight fade to the right by opening the head a mm but I can’t get this culb to hook left at all.
Conclusion: Been using the FT-iQ for a few months now, and am thoroughly enjoying the accuracy and confidence. My previous driver was the 2008 Cleveland Launcher XLS (damn loud) which gets me slightly longer distance but with much more shot dispersion…and it was non-conforming… While addressing over the ball, the FT-iQ inspires confidence. You can shape your shots, but the occurence of big slices and hooks are all but history.
Excerpt: As some of you may have noticed, I left a review for this club back in June 2009 praising this club. Well, 12 months on I felt I had to change my review. I still feel that the original grip was the worst grip ever put onto a golf club, but my opinion regarding the rest of the driver has changed, I originally stated that this driver won't cure a slice or a hook.
Conclusion: I’ve used a TM R5 Dual for the last 5 years and have been pretty happy with it, but I decided I wasn’t hitting enough fairways and something straighter would be a good idea. Not really looking for extra distance, but then who can resist a few extra meters? All the mag reviews seemed to reckon the FTiq was "straighter" than anything else, so I picked one up – 9.0 degrees with a stiff shaft. Worked well on the launch monitor, but a morning at the DR told a different story.
