This is the driver the shot makers turn to. Versatility, distance and control all in one space-age package. The cheap Callaway FT-9 Driver was designed to deliver the most creative shot-making you can think of. Fade it. Draw it. Or take it over the trees. With the addition of Hyperbolic Face Technology, ball speeds across the entire face have been dramatically improved to generate even more distance. Choose between Draw or Neutral configurations with the help of external web weighting that helps precisely position the center of gravity to promote the desired trajectory and ball flight for the desired shot shape.
The Callaway FT-9 Tour Driver features a slightly open face angle and produces stronger, more penetrating trajectories preferred by highly accomplished players. The big push by Callaway for the FT-9 is the ability to shape your shots, "the shot makers return" is the blurb in the commercial, fade, draw or anything in between. Of course it's nice to have Phil Mickelson be your spokesman when promoting creativity. What's behind it? The Hyperbolic Face Technology where ball speeds are purported to dramatically increase across the entire face generated more distance.
Coupled with the Fusion Technology that creates maximum perimeter weighting and you have a very high tech driver waiting for action. While all FT-5 drivers have swing weights of D2, all FT-9 drivers have swing weights of D3 as cheap Callaway golf clubs. These specifications indicate that the FT-9 has a greater swing weight then the FT-5. While greater swing weights allow for longer drives, they make it more difficult to hit. For this reason, beginners will likely find the FT-5 more effective, whereas experienced golfers will likely enjoy the distance advantage that the FT-9 affords.
