CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY) today introduced the RAZR Fit Xtreme™ Driver, the longest fully adjustable driver the Company has ever measured. Available to golfers on January 18, 2013, the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver debuts new technologies to advance overall performance and promote distance gains over its predecessor, the award-winning, Tour-proven RAZR Fit® Driver.
Headlining the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is a powerful new Speed Frame™ Face Technology that optimizes stiffness and stress distribution across the face for more efficient energy transfer. This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-center contact. Among other improvements, Callaway's new driver features the lowest Center of Gravity (CG) of any adjustable driver, further fueling distance gains, and a new weighting system that offers golfers a greater range of shot shaping options.
"The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is worthy of its extreme designation," said Dr. Alan Hocknell, SVP, Research & Development, Callaway Golf. "We worked tirelessly to improve on the best distance characteristics of our longest drivers, and the result is incredibly fast ball speed off the Speed Frame Face, plus the lowest CG of any adjustable driver in golf. This driver is very long and consistent. It will not be matched."Callaway Staff Professionals like Luke List have already seen tremendous distance gains during player testing with RAZR Fit Xtreme. List, who this year led all six major professional Tours in driving distance with a 324 yard average off the tee, gained 16.6 yards in total distance over his current RAZR Fit gamer by adding .6 mph ball speed and reducing his backspin by nearly 500 rpm with the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver. The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is further differentiated by patented technologies that allow Callaway Research & Development, the largest team in the industry, to both design and configure the driver to promote optimal distance. These technologies and other features, which are outlined below, work in conjunction with two premium stock shaft offerings to deliver the longest fully adjustable driver in golf.
