Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme Driver

Phil Mickelson might just be seeing a raise from Callaway after his win in Phoenix at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.  Mickelson switched drivers to Callaway's new 2013 Razr Fit Xtreme driver, dropped the name of the driver multiple times in interviews, and promptly went out to have his best driving week in years.  Mickelson was able to switch to a conventional lofted driver due to the extremely low spin produced by the Razr Fit Xtreme.

The Razr Fit Extreme features Callaway's Variable Face Technology and Hyperbolic Face Technology to enhance the stress distribution across the club's face and increases the efficiency of energy transfer to the ball.  It also makes for a larger, more consistent sweetspot and increased ball speed across the face.

The center of gravity of the club is optimized for launch and spin conditions that a good player would enjoy.  The Moment of inertia is also higher, leading to less twisting of the clubface on off-center hits and more consistent flight throughout.

The Razr Fit Xtreme is the second driver from Callaway to utilize adjustable technology.  The OptiFit hosel allows for open, neutral, or closed face angle at address, while the OptiFit weights, at 13 and 1 gram, allow the player to set his driver to draw or neutral bias.  The higher lofts have more draw bias than the lower lofts.

The driver comes in 8.5, 9.5, and 10.5 degree lofts and is 440cc, which is 20cc less than last year's Razr Fit.  It features 2 tour-grade shaft offerings, in the Aldila Trinity and the Matrix 7M3 Black Tie. 

The driver was released on January 18th and has a retail price of $399.
