Keeps the ball in play with greater distance.
Impact sound and Price.
My index right now is 14. I am coming to the FT-i from the Great Big Bertha (GBB) (1995) version. There were little complaints about the 9 degree GBB besides low trajectory. I went to Demo days last week, and hit the FT-i Neutral and Draw. The 9 Degree Stiff, Draw version seemed to fit my swing better than the Neutral, which had a more consistent slice. The Draw version booms off the tee from straight to a nice high draw. I have not seen the distance loss as some people have seen. My tendency is to hit it square to off-the-toe. Over all, I am hoping to drop a few shots from being closer to the hole off the tee. I noticed that teeing the ball higher with the FT-i has also helped compared to teeing very low with with the GBB. I also enjoy the higher trajectory of the FT-i. This club is a solid "A" for my swing and handicap. I saw no need for the tour version since my handicap will probably never go below 10. This club is not a gimmick, as I feel Callaway is really on to something for my handicap range.
