I tried and tried dialing in the loft and lie, but to no avail, nothing worked. This allowed Callaway to modify everything from the head size, moment of inertia, center of gravity position, weight and even bulge radius to produce optimal conditions across the loft options in each head. Two different head options, a cc version and cc version, allow golfers to choose between a lower-launching, more penetrating flight, and a higher-launching, more forgiving option respectively. Generally quite high and a bit spinny at times. Takes a while to get my head around what the different settings.

The current strategy at Callaway is to focus on new innovation, not just iterative products, and the company has been willing to release ccallaway clubs more often this year. I hit the slider and it had no punch at all for me. Congrats on your win at the PGA. Thewith its more penetrating flight, will be going straight into my bag.

The forgiveness is also very good, particularly as the Optiforce seems to have a relatively compact face for the head size. Mishits with the resulted in slightly worse shots than thewhich was expected, but it still generated good speeds. On both versions there seems to be a lot of clubface above the grooves and towards the toe, which is a little odd. Actually, it created a bit too much draw bias for him, which is why the loft setting was lowered 1-click to 9 degrees.


The good news with this driver is that it sounds good, especially on center strikes. I rate it a solid 5 star driver.

Callaway FT Optiforce Drivers: Editor Review – GolfWRX

I mean that the Callaway FT-9 Tour is a brilliant club even if it feels like it was released ten years ago… but it takes time to find out which drivers are really great and which is just good or ok. Both clubs, once I ccallaway in the launch conditions, outperform my current gamer in total carry.

This is kind of nice, actually, as combined with the feel you can tell where you missed. At least if they are a mid-handicapper with 90mph-ish swings like me.

The Story Behind Callaway’s FT Optiforce Driver

Callaway engineers understand that trying to be everything to everyone in one driver head caklaway almost impossible. The FT Optiforce currently is the newest available driver from Callaway.

I have the OptiForce Both drivers live up to the marketing promise. In this driver, they have created a big stick that has a great, simple look at address and one that is easy to keep the ball in the fairway. I tend to believe that due to the shortened length of the shafts in the irons and fairway woods, they work great for my particular swing.

Great sounding club, easy to groove into the sweet spot. Write a Review Thank you, your review has been submitted successfully and will be included on the page once approved.

Put simply, there were too many choices. We dont want a club that goes an extra 7 yds if we cant keep it within 40 yds of the fairway. Performance The cc head launched quite high and although the spin numbers were high, the flight wasn’t overly ‘balloony’, carrying yards on average. Not my cup of tea.
