It looks like the best of the Titleist Driver and the best of the Taylormade Driver in one.

Amazing looking club!!!

On another note, it's interesting that he has Nike pants on, a Footjoy glove, and is hitting Titleist golf balls.

Well, I'll try it.  I try everything.  It looks decent at least, but as a former Callaway acolyte, it needs to do a lot to supplant my R11 to even attempt to win me back.  Sadly, for me in recent years, there's been nothing to get excited about.

It does look at lot like the Titleist driver...

Congrats to Callaway with this new mind blowing technology....lol. It does pay tribute to Titleist, immatation is the best form of flattery.

Sweet looking club, I wonder what it sounds like? ala ft-9 would be awesome

I do find it interesting that it looks so much like the Titleist system, you would think there would be patents galore on that.

Sure looks like a copy of the Titleist shaft adjust system...  The good part is it looks like they finally got rid of that hideous seam on the top.

LOL!  Like I said, it needs to do a lot, but they always seem to fall...about 15 yards short!

Looking at the adjustable ferrule, is there one more layer of adjustability over the Titleist?

Looks very similar to the Titty tip, I'm sure this will be a sweet driver. Seems like the Adjustables are improving rapidly, I've been totally impressed with my 910 and R11 this season...BB

I'm in for it. I hope Callaway will have some great stock shafts and keep the ball speeds from some of the other drivers.

Wonder if you can use 910 shafts? That would be nice and make dumping money into shafts easier knowing you could use them in different oem heads.

A local Cleveland, Ohio boy showing off the RAZR Fit driver.  I like it!  
It's going to be really hard choosing between the Fit and the Black.  

Or maybe not.  Both.   :pimp:

If that's the case, then why bother if it's bringing less adjustability than a Titty or a TM?  It's like bringing a knife to a gun fight!

Understand your point. I'm told Cally is claiming adjustabilty with  the shaft without actually turning the shaft. Also the weights, do to location and carbon technology, have a greater effect on ball flight than anything TaylorMade offers.

Pretty cool. So instead of the only one band rotating like on the 910, both bands rotate on the adjustable hosel, so no matter the setting you can graphics face down or at all point you would like? Am I understanding this correctly?

Is all of this true, or just marketing speak?

Thats how I understand it. One band alters loft, one alters lie and the 3rd just spins the shaft so it can be set up with graphics/spine how you want it no matter how the playing positions are set up.
