Callaway RAZR FIT Lightning Review
I played 9 holes with Callaway RAZR FIT driver and I was really impressed with how easy it is to hit. The Variable Face Technology and Hyperbolic face give the RAZR FIT a large sweet spot that’s easy to hit. The RAZR FIT produces a nice medium-high trajectory on your drives, that explode off the face.
The Forged Composite crown helps reduce weight and create an optimal center of gravity, which makes for a high MOI driver that is very forgiving. Even on shots not hit squarely on the face, like the toe of the driver, my drives resulted in more of a fade, than a slice.
In terms of adjustability, you can set the face square/neutral, open, or closed. So your options are limited in terms of adjusting the face, but I prefer a simple setup like this, because you don’t have to mess around with so many settings. This in my opinion is where Callaway got it right. Changing the face is a snap, with the torque wrench that’s included. The RAZR FIT comes with a stock ALDILA RIP’D NV 458 CC 45.5″ shaft, that has a D5 swing weight, and Golf Pride, New Decade grip.
If your looking to purchase an adjustable face driver, you really should consider the Callaway RAZR FIT. It’s simple setup and forgiving face make it a great driver for all types of golfers.
The Callaway RAZR FIT driver will be available February 17, 2012.
