Callaway debuts RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver
Callaway Golf Company has introduced the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver, the longest fully adjustable driver the Company has ever measured.
Available to golfers on January 9, 2013, the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver debuts new technologies to advance overall performance and promote distance gains over its predecessor, the award-winning, Tour-proven RAZR Fit Driver.
Headlining the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is a powerful new Speed Frame Face Technology that optimises stiffness and stress distribution across the face for more efficient energy transfer.
This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-centre contact.
Among other improvements, Callaway’s new driver features the lowest Centre of Gravity (CG) of any adjustable driver, further fuelling distance gains, and a new weighting system that offers golfers a greater range of shot shaping options.
The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is further differentiated by patented technologies that allow Callaway Research & Development, the largest team in the industry, to both design and configure the driver to promote optimal distance.
These technologies and other features, which are outlined below, work in conjunction with two premium stock shaft offerings to deliver the longest fully adjustable driver in golf.
Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver
Speed Frame Face Technology
Speed Frame Face Technology is a combination of VFT and Hyperbolic Face Technology, resulting in stress distribution across the titanium face for a larger, more consistent sweet spot and increased ball speed.
The Speed Frame Face also saves weight that is redistributed in the clubhead to improve the CG position and maximise MOI, which leads to optimised ball flight and forgiveness. Additionally, the Speed Frame Face on the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver features a tighter bulge radius than the RAZR Fit Driver for a more preferred look at address, along with more consistent sidespin and dispersion.
Forged Composite Crown
Callaway has been working with Forged Composite — an advanced carbon fibre material — for more than four years. Using this patented, lightweight material in the crown of the driver, which weighs only 12.1 grams and is the lightest crown in golf, allows Callaway engineers to precisely position saved weight to achieve the lowest CG in any fully adjustable driver. This Lower CG promotes higher ball speed and less spin off the tee for more distance.
Two OptiFit Technology elements make up the RAZR Fit Xtreme’s improved adjustability: the OptiFit Hosel and OptiFit Weights. The hosel adjusts the face angle to Open, Square or Closed positions to improve accuracy and trajectory while allowing golfers to dial in their preferred look at address. The 13- and 1-gram OptiFit Weights shift the clubhead’s centre of gravity to promote noticeable Draw or Neutral ball flights.
Broader Trajectory and Shot Shaping Options
Callaway’s RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver comes in more lofts that incorporate a greater range of face angle options, CG bias options and CG height differences than the RAZR Fit Driver.
Callaway has optimised the performance in each loft to suit the needs of the players that will use it.
For example, the 8.5-, 9.5- and 10.5-degree clubheads are 440cc (versus 460cc for other lofts) and feature a more open face angle.
Stock Shaft Options
The RAZR Fit Xtreme will feature two tour grade shafts as stock offerings. The primary shaft, the Aldila Trinity, combines Aldila’s three patented design technologies (RIP, S-Core, Micro Laminate) into a single shaft design.
A secondary offering, the Matrix 7M3 Black Tie, is a heavier, lower launching, lower spinning option for higher head speed and higher spin players. Neither shaft will be modified from the product available in the aftermarket.
The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver will be available for the new product introduction retail price of AUD$499 in Australia on January 9th, 2013.
