Meet Callaway’s RAZR Fit Xtreme™ Driver, the longest fully adjustable driver we’ve ever measured. Available to golfers across Europe on 25th January 2013, the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver debuts new technologies to advance overall performance and promote distance gains over its predecessor, the award-winning, Tour-proven RAZR Fit® Driver.

Headlining the RAZR Fit Xtreme is a powerful new Speed Frame™ Face Technology that optimises stiffness and stress distribution across the face for more efficient energy transfer. This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-centre contact. Among other improvements, the new driver features the lowest Centre of Gravity (CG) of any adjustable driver, further fueling distance gains, and a new weighting system that offers golfers a greater range of shot shaping options.

Callaway Staff Professionals like Luke List have already seen tremendous distance gains during player testing with RAZR Fit Xtreme. List, who this year led all six major professional Tours in driving distance with a 324 yard average off the tee, gained 16.6 yards in total distance over his current RAZR Fit gamer by adding .6 mph ball speed and reducing his backspin by nearly 500 rpm with the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver.

The RAZR Fit Xtreme is further differentiated by patented technologies that allow our Research & Development Dept., the largest team in the industry, to both design and configure the driver to promote optimal distance. These technologies and other features, which are outlined below, work in conjunction with two premium stock shaft offerings to deliver the longest fully adjustable driver in golf.

RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver - Speed Frame FaceSpeed 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 sweet spot 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. Additionally, the Speed Frame Face on the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver features a tighter bulge radius than the RAZR Fit Driver for a more preferred look at address, along with more consistent sidespin and dispersion.

Stock Shaft Options
The RAZR Fit Xtreme will feature two tour grade shafts as stock offerings. The primary shaft, the Aldila Trinity, combines Aldila’s 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.

Forged Composite Crown
We have been working 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 12.1 grams and is the lightest crown in golf, allows our engineers to precisely 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.

RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver - ExpandedOptiFit Technology
Two OptiFit® Technology elements make up the RAZR Fit Xtreme’s improved adjustability: the OptiFit Hosel and OptiFit Weights. The 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 13- and 1-gram OptiFit 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 RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver 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. We 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.

RAZR Fit Xtreme udesign - Orange/WhiteFor golfers who are interested in personalisation options, udesign™ by Callaway will be expanded for the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver when it debuts in January. Both the crown and the sole of the clubhead are now separately customisable with eight different colour options. For the first time, custom laser engraving will also be available on the sole of the driver.

The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver was unveiled today through an innovative, user-driven “Tweet to Unleash” campaign powered by the hashtag #LongestDriverInGolf. Tweets mentioning the dedicated hashtag contributed to a dynamic revealing of the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver image and videos highlighting key technologies.

PLEASE NOTE: For those wanting to be custom fitted for a RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver, the new driver will be available in the Callaway Performance Centres from mid-January.
