Here's the secret to this thing...
on September 24, 2013
I've been a life-long golfer. My father put a club into my hands somewhere around 7 years old, and I am now 64.
I've played with a lot of drivers, and my shed unfortunately still has 5-6 lying around.
I've also had a lifelong fade, and I have to work at a draw. I have done a lot of research, and this driver has one thing going for it that a lot of full sized, (and even illegal 520 to 555CC drivers) do not. A slightly flatter face profile.
If you go to one of those digital ranges at a local sporting goods or golf store, take a few drivers and compare the face profiles. You will find that the Calloway RAZR X Black Ti, and some other Calloway models, have a slightly flatter face profile. Many drivers have more of a ballooned out profile, not so the Calloway. Especially lower priced clubs, in an effort to gain a little more rebound, will balloon out the face a little, making for more dramatic slices and hooks if you don't hit it exactly dead center.
Not so the Callaway. Being a bit flatter, they offer straighter hits on a wider section of the face. You may come through with your top speed somewhere slightly off center. I know from years of playing that my highest speed is a little towards the toe. I actually sometimes feel it hitting the toe as I can now, with my age, lose my grip a little if it is too far towards the toe. We're talking a couple millimeters based on hitting it with marking tape on the face. If you also have a high speed that is not perfectly dead center, then the Callaway is your driver. Also, the Callaway is a bit higher in profile, making it even more forgiving and allowing for a good amount of rebound.
This will be one great club for me and a lot of others who have tried it. Get on a digital range in a store and try it out. See what I mean by the flatter face. Great club, nice weight. For an old man, this is just what I needed. Regular flex, of course!
