Tour Authentic RAZR Fit: The combination of Forged Composite and OptiFit Technology makes Callaway’s first driver featuring adjustability the performance leader. The OptiFit Tour Hosel offers nine unique face angles to choose from and the six OptiFit Tour Weights allow for a more finely tuned ball flight and trajectory. Golfers can dial in their ideal settings with Tour Authentic Technology and hit drives with distance and accuracy like never before.

Project X Black: The new Project X Black features a 10% weight reduction from the original Project X graphite for explosive power while preserving critical tip stability and low spin performance. With proprietary Dual Torsional Control, Project X Black reduces spin rates at impact for optimized peak trajectory with flatter descent angles for maximum carry and roll.

With the Razr Fit Tour Authentic hosel, do the +/- on the second cog simply open or close the face more or does it adjust the lie? For a right-handed golfer, is there a way to play a draw with a lower ball flight? It is my understanding that closing the face would increase the actual loft, thus not correcting the high ball flight issue.

Chad, What was the release strategy around the RF, The RF TA and the Custom RF all being staggered so much? Was there a reason they couldn't all be released in February so that a buyer could have his choice of the newest option, rather than have to buy the RF on 2/15, then uprgade to a TA or a Custom later?


I bought a RF on 2/15, but wished I was able to get a TA....or maybe an Orange....or maybe an Orange TA...

Chad,

What viability, if any, is there in coatings and paints that reduce friction in order to increase impact speeds? We have seen that the shaft used for the Cobra Long Tom supposedly has a paint that reduces friction through the air can we expect to see Callaway (or any club maker) utilizing similar technology in the future?

Also the Razr name lends it self so well to a simple blade putter... possibly with the Odyssey Metal X Insert anything in the works?

Luke: The RAZR Fit TA is creating some buzz, and the RAZR Fit is a good seller. What does Callaway see as the next evolution of the RAZR Fit concept.

Chad: The RAZR Black irons feature the True Temper Memphis 10 shafts. This is not the first time that Callaway has used this shaft in previous irons (X-14s and earlier). What made Callaway choose this shaft for the RAZR Black iron, is the shaft updated, and what are the properties of the Memphis 10 shaft?

Luke- I have a lot of friends and family in the military and Callaway has always shown great character with their support for Birdies for the Brave. I was wondering if you were going to release anything this year (possibly not in camo but still sharing a portion of proceeds to the cause)? Maybe even a camo or red/white/blue accent RAZR Fit head?

Thank you Luke and Chad for your time.

How much directional difference (in yards left or right) would a consistent player see between the open, square, and closed settings on the RAZR Fit driver with similar swings? Or what is the difference that Callaway has determined from robotic testing?

Mr Williams what do you believe will be Callaways next break through technology? You have had many advancements from the original Big Berthas to the new RAZR Fit with adjustable weights, a super light crown, and adjustable shaft technology. I am curious to know where the next breakthrough will come from. Thank you for your time.

Mr Hall, I am a huge fan of the Project X graphite shafts ( was using an early prototype until I lent it to my brother in as and I haven't seen it since). My question is it yours or True Tempers philosophy that lighter is better? There are a lot of manufacturers who are going to very light shafts I was hoping forward to your opinons on these ultra light shafts and their effect on distance and accuracy. Thank you for your time as well.

To GolfWRX thanks for the giveaway and forputting this all together.

With Callaway now becoming a leader in the personal customization trend that has hit golf with the new "custom color" RAZR Fit, has True Temper talked to Callaway about possibly offering "custom color" project X driver shafts or even custom color labeled iron shafts? Obviously this has no affect on performance, but do Callaway and True Temper currently talk about teaming up to be the pioneer in a truly fully custom driver?

Hi guys. Thanks for the chance to win. Do you feel that with the new CEO there will be any fundamental changes in the strategy Callaway employs its product lineup? Will there be more emphasis on "players" stuff or game improvement products, or no change at all?

Seems like every OEM, Callaway included, has several iron models that offer various True Temper steel shafts as stock options. But its more difficult to find stock graphite shafts with True Temper logos on them. I'm sure there are a ton of reasons for that, but I am excited to see the Project X Black as a stock option for the Razr Fit TA. What characteristics of the Project X Black stand out, and helped Callaway choose it as its go to shaft?

Hey Guys,

Thanks for taking the time out of your day.

1) How does Callaway decide what to use for a stock shaft?
--------> (I hit the RHT w/ the RIP, and the RZR Fit with the Stock RIP'D NV and both were really solid, props!!)

2) Please explain Callaway's marketing strategy with their irons, are so many models really necessary?


THANKS GUYS AND WRX!!

How did Callaway decide to offer adjustment for face angle and heel/toe weighting but not lie or loft? Do you feel that some adjustment systems are too overwhelming in their options?

Luke, (my name too by the way) can you go more into the exact adjustability of the TA vs. Retail and any differences? I was told the TA may have a slightly deeper face or appear shorter front to back. Are there any differences in the head aside from the pvd finish and green accents? Is the greater adjustability the only change structurally?

Also, I would love to know more about the decision making process you guys go through regarding what the product released to the public will be. How do you choose shafts especially? What about the rather high swingweight on these clubs?

Thanks so much, I have been itching to try a Razr Fit TA. Now would be a great chance! Would go well w/ my X-proto's, razr x tour hybrid and hex black tour balls. Wonder if it can finally knock out the FT Tour...
