CALLAWAY FT5 TOUR DRIVER
I am a slicer and had been playing Cobra off sets and Taylor Burner with a draw bias. The FT-i is the driver many people are curious about, and I was excited to give it a try. This is similar to the FT-3, while the original Fusion driver had an exposed weave to its composite body which I still think looks cool. The only thing I can deduce is that the lighter weight in comparison to my old driver was causing me to close the face of the FT at impact. Swing speed for me is around …peaking at MPH. I am not used to hitting so straight so it took a couple rounds to adjust to hitting where I aim instead of planning for a small fade. The FT-i should help with your swing plane in the back and forward swing.

I never hit so many fairways in all my life. How about a review on the Taylormade Superquad?
Callaway FT-i/FT-5 Driver Review
Heel, toe, or square, you always get a good piece and it goes a long way. If you are not careful you will still slice.
Conclusion I see the FT-5 and the FT-i as two completely different products at completely different stages in the design cycle. In other words, fr5 should be forgiving not just on balls hit left or right of center, but also high and low on the face, so you get good results no matter where you make contact with the ball.
This is by far the worst driver i have evr had!! But would suggest getting fit for the right shaft.

However after having it just 4 months the shaft had worn away and snapped. You think it will say yes? As an FT-3 player, the FT-5 is a step forward, but probably not enough to justify buying a new driver if you still like the previous model which I really do. It forgiving calllaway well but you can tell when you miss.
However, the cqllaway of the clubface bothered me. By the 11th hole three of our foursome were hitting it. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. I went with the FT-i, because I just kept hitting it in the middle of the fairway so often. I switched to the FT-5 neutral face with a stiff shaft. Share this with your golf buddies: I wonder if it was a last-minute idea, and the headcovers and grips were already designed and ordered.

Graphite Available for ladies and left handed. I had my grip, my stance and even my swing changed with my old driver but with the same setup i was hooking everything with the ft-5 so I just lined up straight and the first one i hit went dead straight i was still hitting the ball off the heel all the time but i lined up with the toe of the club and that fixed that.

I think the FTi is a great club. Went to a 10 deg neutral and wow, is this thing forgiving and long. Compared to the FT-3, the FT-5 fallaway an obvious, evolutionary next step. Hook and shank have officially been erased from my vocab!!!!

With this club all you got to do is the basics. In wet conditions, or really humid conditions, the stock grip is no good.
The square form factor is weird, calllaway felt like it guided me in a correct swing plane. First, it is true that unless you hit this club in the toue spot it seems to loose a little distance over other clubs I have hit.
For a slicer or a golfer who has a probloem swing this may indeed help, but this driver is not for the better players. I purchased the draw version because i slice my drives sometimes. I feel confident with it most of the time.
