Callaway RAZR Fit Driver- Tech Video & Pictures

Published

on

GolfWRX Visits the Ely Callaway Performance Center in Carlsbad. We made the journey to get the inside scoop from Luke Williams – Sr. Director, Global Woods & Irons at Callaway Golf.

The 2012 RAZR Fit Driver and RAZR Fit Fairway Woods both feature Callaway’s renowned OptiFit adjustability system—designed for easy use and noticeable changes in trajectory for each of the settings. The system allows golfers to adjust the club’s face angle to three address positions: Open, Square and Closed. This adjustment is controlled within the “cog,” a rotatable element of the hosel that changes the angle of the shaft axis relative to the head. Rotating the cog enables golfers to choose a preferred look at address while also minimizing a slice or hook generated by the club’s delivery to the ball. Because the shaft does not rotate with the cog, shaft graphics and grip reminders remain consistent to the player’s eye when they adjust the face angle. In the driverhead, OptiFit weights (12 grams and 2 grams) are included in the clubhead’s sole and are also adjustable, allowing golfers to shift the center of gravity to promote a perceivable draw or neutral ball flight.

Callaway RAZR Fit Driver for 2012

The crown of the RAZR Fit Driver 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 RAZR Fit Driver a lower center of gravity, making it more forgiving on off-center hits.

Callaway’s RAZR Fit Driver also incorporates a proprietary innovation in aerodynamic shaping called Streamlined Surface Technology, which 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 offer 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 RAZR Fit Driver comes standard with a 45.5″ Aldila® RIP’d™ NV shaft and a premium Golf Pride® New Decade Multi Compound grip. Already in the bags of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Alvaro Quiros and other tour professionals around the world, the RAZR Fit Driver will be available for all golfers for the new product introduction price of $399 (U.S.).

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
