Callaway FT-iZ Driver
The 2010 Callaway FT-iZ Driver is a fantastic looking golf club that is aimed more at mid to higher handicap golfers. It's one of Callaway's most technologically advanced drivers and is designed to offer outstanding performance and reliability.
If you would like to know the full details of the technology involved in the manufacture of the FT-iZ Driver. You can follow this link to the official Callaway Golf website, which will open in a new window.
The available lofts for the Callaway FT-iZ Driver are 9, 10, 11 and 13 degrees respectively. All are available in right hand, with only the 10 and 11 degree models produced in left hand as well as right.
The model we tested was the 10 degree model, equipped with the Aldila Voodoo graphite shaft in regular flex, though light and stiff flex are also available.
Standing over the golf ball at address, the Callaway FT-iZ Driver does have a rather unconventional head shape, looking more triangular than anything else. This could perhaps put some players off who prefer the more usual pear shaped driver heads.
But if you can get past the shape, you will find that the FT-iZ driver generally launches the golf ball on a fairly high trajectory, with a lot of drives staying airborne for quite a long time.
A result of this is that the club isn't quite as powerful as some other newer Drivers available. But as long as your hitting the golf ball fairly well, you still get more than enough distance to take on most courses.
The accuracy and reliability of this club was where it really shone the most, the FT-iZ Driver is a very forgiving golf club. Miss-hits are rarely punished, and at times when you're playing this club off the tee, it can be harder to miss the fairway than to hit it.
So although you likely wont be winning any long drive contests, this is probably one of the safest drivers that you could own just now.
As such it's not a driver that players will be looking at if they like to work they're tee shots a lot of the time, but that isn't really what the club was made for.
Overall this golf club is an offering from Callaway that will certainly please the main target group. Despite the unconventional head shape, it's actually a very easy club to hit, and it's difficult to find a more forgiving driver right now.
Also brand new as of 2012, the club usually costs around £130 or $206.
