|• Forged Composite is a revolutionary new material that is one-third the density of titanium, yet it is lighter and stronger than titanium. The sole and crown contains more than 23 million turbostratic carbon fibers that reinforce 67 percent of the clubhead. • Precise thickness control, resulting in a clubhead that's lighter, stronger than titanium but still has an extremely high moment of inertia. • A longer club configuration for faster head speed, ball speed and greater distance without compromising forgiveness.• A chemical milling process selectively removes excess material for precision thickness control across the face, producing consistently high ball speeds for extreme distance• Streamlined surface contours to reduce energy loss from drag during the downswing by 43 percent • RAZR Weighting System• 450cc, 1 degree open clubhead|

I went from the FT Tour/Aldila Voodoo to the Razr Tour/Aldila RIP. Both same degrees and both Stiff Flex.
The club sounds great, and is marginally easier to hit and longer than the club it replaces. This is more a "players" club (shorter/taller) and comes with an open face. Great choice for a 12 handicapper or better. It really allows you to swing/rotate aggressively through the ball without the worry of the snap hook.
Bonus about Callaway's "Tour" clubs - they had the longest running driver. Not changing every year (Adams) or every other (Taylor Made) which drives the price of your current stick to nothing. I hated the fact that on my R9 with a Custom Shaft, I simply could not by the Head. I had to blow another $500.
Excellent piece of equipment!
I tested this club and the RAZR Fit driver at a Callaway Tour Van fitting day in Northern Virginia in May 2012. This club launches fairly high, so the fitter had me use an 8.5 degree model. I am very pleased with the ball flight and carry!
This club replaces a 10 year old Callaway 454 driver, 9 degrees, and I could not be more pleased with the new technology.
Rather than buy a RAZR Fit directly from Callaway, I bought the RAZR Hawk from a reseller on eBay for about half the price.
- Large 'sweet spot'
- I consistently get over 250 yards from the tee
- Tends to 'self-correct' heel shots with fades back to fairway
- Aldila RIP stiff shaft is appropriate for my 100 mph swing speed
- Has a nice sound when I hit it 'on the screws'
- The club works best when I swing easy and let the club do the work.
- None of the problems are club-related, they are the result of an occasional 'loose nut behind the grip'
The Razr Hawk Tour Driver is one of the finest clubs of it's generation. For the money, I would put it up against the highly marketed R11 or the R11s. Go for the i-mix version if you want to be able to dial in on your swing type.
In my household, we have had the 9.5 Draw, 8.5 Tour, 9.5 Neutral, and my daughter had the 11.5 Neutral. If you're wondering if the Draw weight works... Yes! I used to play a very slight fade. It had me drawing the ball right away. Over the year, as my lessons with the PGA pro progressed, I had to move out of the Draw weight and into the Tour version. The Tour heads are ALL 1 degree open. If you slice: stay away from the tour head. I went back to hitting a nice fade with the Tour. I bought into the i-mix system back in the FT-iQ generation and had a few shafts to swap around. Because of that, I bought the 9.5 neutral. Fade GONE! Dead straight and bombing it. I encourage you to just try the Hawk. I also encourage most golfers to try it with the Aldila RIP or VooDoo shafts. They fit so many swing types. If you aren't going to get a fitting, it's the way to go.
I have demoed and owned many of the clubs on the market over the last few years. I have found that the real secret is in the SHAFT! It is the engine that connects your swing to the clubhead... Get fit for your driver so you are getting the most at impact. It's OK to get a fitting then buy your combo on eBay. You can rest assured that people do it everyday. They walk into G*lfsm*th and hit balls on the launch monitor for 45 minutes, the sales guy drops by and gives advice and then the person leaves with purchasing anything. Knowing what shaft you need is 90% of what it takes to love your next club. Not knowing leads to buying and finding out the hard way. I hope this helps!
This is a hot face driver.The tour versionsits open .I changed the shaft to PX 7.0 x stiff with 9.5 *. This is a rocket launcher . The club sits nicely sounds great ,mishits are very respectable .The ball hangs in the air forever if you nail the sweet spot. All in all a winner from Callaway . The longest driver of the year.
Loved my FT Tour 8.5 and thought that this newer model might be even better. If it is it's not by much and not worth the cost versus the difference. Didn't want to but I tried a Taylor Made RBZ with the HD 6 Matric Ozick and have to say that it performs much better than either Callaway. I bought the 9 degree tour head and dialed it down all the way to 7.5 degrees to open the face and don't doubt that this will be my driver for quite a while. Very long and much straighter than either Callaway. Hope this helps.
