Callaway Tour Authentic RAZR Fit Adjustable Driver

Published

on

.

This latest version of the award-winning RAZR Fit features an even greater level of adjustability in the hosel and additional movable weight offerings to dial in the center of gravity and ball flight characteristics, all with a sleek black PVD finish and striking green accents on the sole of the club head.

“The standard offering of our RAZR Fit driver brings straightforward adjustability to golfers who want to see noticeable changes in their ball flight by making simple changes to their driver set-up,” said Alan Hocknell, Senior Vice President, Research & Development, Callaway Golf. “Now, with the release of this Tour Authentic version of the RAZR Fit, golfers who are looking for more detailed ball flight optimization can make smaller, incremental changes to their driver configuration and will have access to the same detailed adjustability options that tour professionals work with.”

The RAZR Fit driver, which was named Editor’s Choice on the Golf Digest Hot List and launched at retail with great success on February 17, features a straightforward adjustable “cog” that allows golfers to alter the face angle to three address positions: Open, Square and Closed. The new Tour Authentic version of the RAZR Fit driver takes that adjustability to another level, with an OptiFit Tour Hosel that features three sub-positions within the Square, Open, and Closed settings, totaling nine unique face angles to choose from. The OptiFit Tour Hosel is the same one used in the drivers of tour professionals like Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and many others.

While the standard RAZR Fit driver comes with 12-gram and 2-gram OptiFit weights that can be moved from the heel and toe positions to promote a neutral or draw weighting, the Tour Authentic RAZR Fit driver offers a greater variety of OptiFit Tour Weights (2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 grams), allowing golfers to shift the club head’s center of gravity to more finely tune ball flight and trajectory. A further benefit of the OptiFit Tour Weights is the ability to additionally optimize the total weight and swing weight of the driver. Separate kits containing 4, 6, 8 and 10 gram weights are now available for purchase separately for golfers that already own the standard RAZR Fit driver, but would like more moveable weight options.

“By adding a second cog to the hosel and additional OptiFit Tour Weights, the Tour Authentic RAZR Fit driver will allow golfers the opportunity to dial in their desired ball flight and trajectory to the most precise level,” Hocknell said. “With this enhanced versatility, the Tour Authentic RAZR Fit delivers on our goal of offering meaningful adjustability to better players in an easy-to-understand design.”

The club head of the Tour Authentic RAZR Fit driver features a black Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) Finish with green accents that match the Golf Pride New Decade grip and premium, magnetized head cover. The club comes with a Project X Black shaft-a Tour-level offering that delivers explosive power and optimized trajectory for maximum carry and roll.

The crown of the RAZR Fit and Tour Authentic RAZR Fit drivers is comprised of Forged Composite, an advanced carbon composite material that Callaway developed over several years in partnership with Automobili Lamborghini. Lighter, stronger, more precise than titanium (the material used in more than 90% of the current drivers in the market), Forged Composite allows Callaway engineers to save crucial weight and precisely control the thickness of the crown. These benefits give the drivers a lower center of gravity, lowering backspin to optimize distance.

Callaway’s RAZR Fit and Tour Authentic RAZR Fit drivers also incorporate a proprietary innovation in aerodynamic shaping called Streamlined Surface Technology that addresses the complex variations in aerodynamic flow during a driver’s entire downswing-from transition through impact. More than four years in the making, Streamlined Surface Technology has reduced RAZR Fit’s energy loss due to drag by 14% (relative to its predecessor, the RAZR Hawk Driver), despite the addition of an adjustable hosel. This contributes to increased ball speed at impact, a critical element of driving distance. This aerodynamics technology is accompanied by the debut of the Company’s new Speed Frame Face Technology, which combines hyperbolic shaping of the clubface with precision thickness control to achieve a larger sweet spot. This new technology optimizes stress distribution and increases ball speeds across the face. Callaway engineers were also able to save weight by implementing this new face technology.

The Tour Authentic RAZR Fit driver will be available for all golfers for the new product introduction retail price of $499 (US).

    Just received my ta razr fit driver this morning got a chance to hit a few balls this afternoon and I must admit so far I’m very impressed driver feels solid and the shaft seems incredible giving a mid to high penetrating flight no ballooning, balls seem to fly off the face and keep going. As I said only got to hit a few balls on the range would still like a bit of coarse time to get a proper gauge on it but first impressions are great.

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
