Adjustability in a 3 wood that might be one to take note for 2012. 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.
Like the RAZR Fit Driver, the RAZR Fit Fairway Woods feature three address positions—Open, Square and Closed. They will be available in a 3-Wood (15°) and a 5-Wood (18°), and allow players to adjust based on their preferred look at address and to minimize tendencies to hook or slice the ball. Callaway’s staff of Tour players helped inspire the club design, which features a traditional shape in a compact head size, as well as a shallow face with a low leading edge.
The Company’s engineers have also applied aggressive Variable Face™ Thickness Technology® to precisely shape the face thickness in each fairway wood, increasing the sweet spot to promote consistent trajectories and hotter ball speeds. RAZR Fit Fairway Woods will be available at the new product introduction price of $249 (U.S.).
“The RAZR Fit Fairway Wood was designed for players seeking the ultimate in performance and optimization,” said Dr. Alan Hocknell, Sr. Vice President of Research & Development, Callaway Golf. “Whether a golfer is advancing the ball in a fairway or getting out of trouble, RAZR Fit Fairway Woods will inspire the confidence to hit great shots.”
