Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme: Key featuresNovember, 2012 Competitions
Learn more about this exciting new release
Here are some of the key features and technologies behind Callaway’s new Razr Fit Xtreme driver.
Speed Frame Face technology
Speed Frame Face Technology is a combination of VFT and Hyperbolic Face Technology, resulting in stress distribution across the titanium face for a larger, more consistent hitting area and increased ball speed. The Speed Frame Face also saves weight that is redistributed in the clubhead to improve the CG position and maximise MOI, which leads to optimised ball flight and forgiveness. A tighter bulge radius offers a more preferred look at address, along with more consistent sidespin and dispersion.
Forged composite crown
Callaway have worked with Forged Composite – an advanced carbon fibre material – for more than four years. Using this patented, lightweight material in the crown of the driver, which weighs only 12.1g, allows Callaway engineers to position saved weight to achieve the lowest CG in any fully adjustable driver. This lower CG promotes higher ball speed and less spin off the tee for more distance.
The lower CG promotes higher ball speed and less spin off the tee for more distance.
The OptiFit hosel adjusts the face angle to Open, Square or Closed positions to improve accuracy and trajectory while allowing golfers to dial in their preferred look at address. The 13g and 1g weights shift the clubhead’s centre of gravity to promote noticeable Draw or Neutral ball flights. Higher lofts have more draw bias than lower lofts.
Broader trajectory and shot-shaping options
The Xtreme comes in more lofts that incorporate a greater range of face angle options, CG bias options and CG height differences than the RAZR Fit driver it succeeds. Callaway have optimised the performance in each loft to suit the needs of the players that will use it. For example, the 8.5º, 9.5º and 10.5º clubheads are 440cc (versus 460cc for other lofts) and feature a more open face angle.
Stock shaft options
Two tour grade shafts are stock offerings. The Aldila Trinity combines three patented design technologies (RIP, S-Core, Micro Laminate) into a single shaft design. A secondary offering, the Matrix 7M3 Black Tie, is a heavier, lower-launching, lower-spinning option for higher head speed and higher spin players. Neither shaft will be modified from the product available in the aftermarket.
Both the crown and the sole are separately customisable with eight different colour options. For the first time, custom laser engraving will also be available on the sole.
