I am glad I purchased this driver, It gave me a lot more yardage and I am always glad to use this Driver, If you are looking to get a cheap great driver, Here is on for you. All Callaway Drivers are Great including the DIABLO EDGE. MY opinion the FT-I is a great Driver. Although If I slice the ball I may be more extreme than others. Overall GREAT GREAT CLUB. (read more)

My buddies didn't like the sound nor the shape of this Callaway FT-i driver but who cares as long as I hit the fairways most of the time. I didn't have to swing any harder with a stiff regular Graphite Design shaft than I would with a regular. I am happy to hit better and straighter shots now. I am a 15 handicapper and with this 10 degree loft driver carving out a nice trajectory and respectable distance, my game is up a notch. (read more)

I either hit straight (1 in 3 games) or have a nice slice that goes onto the next fairway or further...
I have hit about 300 drives with this club ( 2 rounds plus driving range) and probably 290 have been dead straight. I even tried to slice a shot, opening up my stance completely and still it went dead straight. I did manage to hook though when I closed it.
The confidence you have with this Callaway FT-i club in your hand is worth the money alone. It feels like cheating now knowing that all... (read more)

Even with a bad shot I still get good distance from my Callaway FT-i and a straight drive with this club moreso than any other I have tried. Because I get good results even with my bad shots it gives confidence so therefore end up with fewer poor shots. Only bad point is the cost (read more)

Tried the 10.5 regular shaft (the white one !). Whilst it appeared to be consistent I reckoned I lost 30-40 yards on the drive compared to my regular Burner driver and the Tour Burner that I was also experimenting with. I was trying to find a reason to justify the very high price for the Callaway FT-i driver and could not. Other drivers at half this cost perform as well. (read more)

Over all a great club to have in your bag. I'm a little older now so I can't swing as hard. I use a Adams Driver ( insight ) and purchased the FT-1 13 HT at an cheap price. You don't get the distance that the Adams gives you but it is at least on the fairway. The FT-1 is for my 160-220 Draw & straight drives. Try it you will love it. Chow (read more)

By far the straightest and most consistent driver i have hit in all my years of golf. I usually suffer from slice when i try too hard but with this driver i can push the ball as hard as i like without ending up on the next fairway to the right, almost every drive lands bang in the middle of the fairway. a definite mustttttt buy for Christmas!! Distance is not as much as the cleveland xls etc but in the middle of the fairway u cant complain about the Callaway FT-i driver (read more)

I was looking for a new driver so set about my usual search of big names and latest equipment. Im a big fan of Callaway anyway so when I came across the Callaway FT-i I was excited just form looking at it. Its looks great, clean and new. Then I hit it. So long, so straight, so sweet. Ive been playing golf for nearly 10 years and the driver has always been one club thats Ive struggled with. This club, for now anyway seems to have solved that problem. I used to use a Callaway Warbird and Big... (read more)

This Callaway FT-i cured my slice by the second hole the very first time I used it.Sure , its a little less distance than my D-1 and G10 .However, 275 on the fairway is better than 300 in the rough or OOB !I have the 10.5 draw,slower swing is needed otherwise I MAY push left. (read more)

I brought the FT i last month from callaway, snaped the shaft, twice on it, each with the same callaway stiff flex, if you get the driver change the shaft straight away, or else youll find out when you dont have a driver for a week, appart from that not a great deal of improvment from this club. i get less spin and extra roll, but aprt from that i only carry this driver about 280-290 where as i carry my cobra in acess of 300. have to put the hours in with the club if you want to use it!

Its a very good club someone that launches the ball low and long but not very consistent. (note that i did not try this club on the range or a course i only tried it on a golf simulator)

Why do I like this driver?
Accuracy: It is really straight, even off-centre hits go very straight with minimal shape
Launch Angle: This club launches the ball very high with low spin. Consider trying a lower loft than you would usually try.
Looks: Many people may differ, but I love the square look. It feels to my like the square flat face encourages a nice sweeping driver swing
Shaft: I chose the standard fit Fujikura Speeder Stiff shaft and it has improved my accuracy dramatically. There are... (read more)

The driver took some time to get used to. I brought it to the driving range for a couple of weeks, twice per week and used it on 2 Saturday's golf game. It was on the third week that I noticed an improvement in distance and target line, driving an average of 270 yards and was usually on the left center of the fairway. My driver is the tour 9.5 stiff.

I had read a number of reviews regarding this driver and thought I'd give it a go. Took it out for one round and then sent it back. It seems to be more of a novelty club than a class driver.
Might have just been my swing but it felt as though it was top heavy and so lost control through the swing.

I have a ping g2 and was going to buy the g10.
My swing pushed the ball right and faded with the g2 and g10.
This surprised me, but he fti went straight this was the most important thing in a driver rather than distance and am off 8 handicap, play your second shot from the rough is not an option.

Much straigher, not as long as G5 but in play. Play of 16 with swingspeed about 95mph. Bought the 586 9degree FTI neutral stiff, like playing with licqourice stick, no control or distance compared with old G5, Aldila NV75 stiff. Switched to 9.5 degree Stiff FTI TOUR, super, super long and straight. Headcover very annoying with magnetic fastener. Not sure it fits great. (read more)

I am an 18 handicap, was trying G10 at the heated launch range in toronto winter - getting about 210 carry, guy next to me a 8 handicap was making a lot of noise and blasting FTi neutral 11 degrees - we exchanged our clubs and I hit 10 shots with the FTi all straight with 220 - 240 carry amazing! - he in turn hit my G10 and he was hitting longer and straighter with G10.
Conclusion : if your handicap is 14 and above you can not go wrong with the FTi.

I play off 15 and have a swing rate of 117 as on 2/12/07. I tended to slice the ball using my nike sumo on a regular flex shaft.

Would suggest you get correctly fitted out for this kit to make it worth your while. (read more)

I am a 15 handicap player who has always struggled with consistency off the tee. Since I bought my Callaway FTi I am hitting the ball straighter and longer and getting the ball in play far more often. It has given me tremendous confidence off the tee and I am knocking 4-5 shots off each round. I even find that off center hits go much straighter and there is less of a tendency for the ball to 'slice'.
I have the 10 degree, stiff shaft, draw which I find I hit better than the regular shaft... (read more)

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... (read more)

I found the Callaway FT-i a breath of fresh air to use, i borrowed one from my partner and i am now planning to buy one myself. Its technology and design speak for itself i think. I read that the pro's cannot use the Callaway as its banned for pro use as gives an unfair advantage i believe?

With all the hype surrounding this club I just had to voice my opinion... I purchased a 9.5 degree, stiff flex, tour, left-handed, neutral bias model for $559 at Golf Town in Langley B.C. ( yikes, $559 ?, nobody said I was bright). Firstly, this thing isn't the answer for all the Slicer's and Duck-hookers out there, if you don't put a good swing on it you can still spray your shots, off center hits carry very well though with out a great loss of distance. This club is difficult to work... (read more)

My friend checked out a demo FT-i and we both played 18 with it. We both have swing speeds of about 80...we wanted a regular flex with a draw setup on the head but all that was available was a neutral with a stiff shaft...speeder 586...so we gave it a try. It took a few swings to get used to the square head but after that it was great. We both normally hit drives of about 180 with fades and slices. On the 3rd tee I hit it 250 and my friend 240 , straight down the middle. The rest of... (read more)

If you can pound it, but need some accuracy the Callaway FT-i is the stick for you. I have made some deplorable swings and yet have not lost ONE ball out of bounds. I hate to say that....we all know what may happen now.
I went from a 9.5 degree to 10 degree and am absolutely launching the ball; I lose sight of the ball in the air, which is all good since it's mostly down the middle. The club has this uncanny ability to straighten out my shots. Balls I start a little left or right of target... (read more)
