"The FT Optiforce Fairways Woods are a powerful mix of the ball speeds of our X Hot Fairway woods and the trajectory of our RAZR Fit Xtreme Fairway Wood," said Hocknell.
The new fairway woods have a Forged Speed Frame Face Cup made of high strength Carpenter 455 stainless steel that produces significantly hotter responses all across the face. The optimized center of gravity (CG) in the fairway wood, accomplished in part through a proprietary design called the Internal Standing Wave, delivers a higher launch with slightly more spin than the X Hot Fairway Wood, resulting in consistent distances from everywhere on the course -- the tee, fairway or rough. The FT Optiforce Fairway Woods have a higher MOI as well, which contributes to the forgiveness and consistency that make these clubs easy to hit.
The FT Optiforce Fairway Woods is also available with two stock shaft offerings, a 53-gram Project X Velocity shaft and a secondary Mitsubishi Diamana S+ shaft.
The FT Optiforce Driver will be available for a new product introduction price of $399. The fairway woods will be available for a new product introduction price of $229.For more information about these new clubs from Callaway, please visit www.CallawayGolf.com To keep up with other Callaway original content, product news and Tour information please connect with Callaway on Twitter @CallawayGolf. *23% less drag claim based on calculated energy loss due to drag throughout the downswing of the 440 FT Optiforce model (9.5-degree) versus a Callaway X Hot Pro 9.5-degree driver.
