I hit a power fade…. This item doesn’t belong on this page. People thought I was swinging a Volkswagon on a shaft and now that club looks so small…and the two ball putter was thought to be an odd looking club, too. Anything that helps make the game more enjoyable for the average higher handicap player has to be a good thing. The Ft-i is straight and long. Yes, the FTi is pricey, but there are good deals on ebay from reputable e-retailers. A word about the color scheme:

I’d rather be in the fairway than long. On order, so stay tuned for my review. In wet conditions, or really humid conditions, the stock grip is no good. Once I got the tee height fixed I found my hits were center high and it felt like butter d5 flew off the face.

Callaway Big Bertha Fusion Driver Review – Golfalot

The sound at impact is better, with a louder metallic smack and only the slight hint of the plastic sound that plagued the original Fusion driver and lingered a bit with the FT The gram weight located at the rear of the driver lowers the CG for optimal trajectory. I purchased another ft3 draw but had lost my swing at fuskon time so in a panic also bought an ft5 same spec and have been hitting them both at the range for the last couple of days and the conclusion is ,,,,they are both very good drivers there is no question about that.

Creating a massive 50gms of discretionary weight for increased distance, accuracy and shot-shaping. Went to a 10 deg neutral and wow, is this thing forgiving and long.


What is the difference between the two years? The Big Bertha name is gone from the FT-5 and FT-i more on that bit of identity crisis laterbut the design basics remain. If you catch one flush with the driver, it is nearly as long as the FT-5, thanks to that extra three-quarters of an inch in shaft length. The FT-5 went longer, but I c5 really spray them wildly offline with a poor swing.

Callaway FT-5 Drivers

From the very 1st shot I hit with it, filled me with confidence. But my old driver was also a regular flex srixon so… I would recomend this driver to anyone even a 20 handicapper. Visually it is not far removed from the Callaway FT-iZ driver ofwhich in turn was the successor of the square Callaway FT-i driver.

A Larger, high velocity face enable you to choose a powerful combination of accuracy and distance to get the best out of your game. I will trade this driver in for a loss I am afraid for something else. For anyone out there who has always had trouble with he driver this is a godsend. I have been using a stock TaylorMade Burner for the last 2 months, and even though when I nail one straight, I can get to maybe one or two every 5 drivesI find that I am nowhere near consistent enough or have the control at a faster swing to warrant using this — more than anything, the driver is killing my scores.

I had been using a Hibore 9. What I hear from retailers is that the FT-i gets a lot of interest, but that more golfers end up buying the FT-5 due to the price and performance. I found very little between the two in terms of forgiveness as well, so try the XR 16 if you want to save fusin a few quid.


This has totally changed my game. Calpaway have an FT-5 draw for about 3 years now after I tried a number of drivers by the time. In sum, have it measured.

I played a GBB 7. The guys behind us on the tee pretty much dropped jaw when I hit it. I have had a fitting session with an ft-i and the ft-5 and the real difference i found the look at address with the ft-i was that the head was smaller heel to toe which callaeay hated.

The Callaway Big Bertha Fusion may cost a little more than the XR 16, but for that you get cutting edge materials in a distinctive head shape with all the latest aerodynamic technology and if it enables fksion to hit more fairways then it will be a worthwhile investment. Any Condition Any Condition.
