Too often, people make their choice based on performance on the driving range…. But at address, this driver is all business. I hit a power fade…. Right Handed Left Handed Ladies. Changed it to the FT-5 and aint looked back. If you put a big outside-in swing on it, the FT-i is still capable of peeling a nice banana for you. More consistent and slightly further – the old X was still a good driver.

Modified version of properietary VFT Technology in which face thicknesses are designed specifically to maximise performance under the new USGA characteristic time test, resulting in a larger, more spin robust face for increased ball speed on shots hit all over the face. But know going in that the FT-i design will keep your ball caolaway play, but not produce miraculous distance on bad swings.
Callaway FT-i/FT-5 Driver Review
Others in my group were often longer, but I was deadly accurate. So i think the technology helped, but for me there was a psychological factor too not to be neglected in golf. This is a keeper.
The square head is a great alignment aid; 2. I agree with the review above with a few exceptions. Once I got the tee height fixed I found my hits callawat center high and it felt like butter and flew off the face. Right Handed Left Handed Ladies. Lots of loft and shaft options for everyone. It is a significant improvement over the Taylor. For anyone out there who has always had trouble with he driver this is a godsend.
I have a wicked gt5 and have to close the club face and step forward with my left foot to keep the ball from slicing.
The FT-5 is a refined, third-generation product that has had any bad traits bred out. The square form factor is weird, it felt like it guided me in a correct swing plane. The FT-i is the driver many calkaway are curious about, and I was excited to give it a try.
Slicing the ball can come and go, and you can fiddle with the weights when you are hitting the ball straighter…. Thank you, your review has been submitted successfully and will be included on the page once approved.
I have always had trouble with my driver, to the point I played my long irons almost exclusively off the tee. Heres my review of the club. For example, on one driving hole I hit two drives with the FT-i. Your email address will not be published. The square head seems to help start the backswing better, and it has a great feel to it.
If you are not careful you will still slice.

I agree with alot of the other reviews about this ft-i ballooning the ball in the air. Compared to the FT-3, the FT-5 is an obvious, evolutionary next neutarl. Very forgiving along with distance comparitive to much higher priced and well advertised clubs. Alternate the two clubs…and you will find your answer. I guess that this is not a new club but an older model?
I found I could really go after it and not worry about sending it OB right. Swing speed for me is around …peaking at MPH. The amount of material used in the titanium cup-face area appears to have been reduced, as the cup area extends less into the callawway and crown areas than it does on the FT Conclusion I see the FT-5 and the FT-i as two completely different products at completely different stages in the design cycle.
For the FT-5, there are some relatively minor tweaks. I picked up the FTI today since golf galaxy has them at a whopping dollars. The first was hit in the center and went down the middle.
But the FT-5 was very nice as well.
