The Callaway Razr Fit Driver is the latest design from the Callaway stable. The Razr Fit is Callaway’s first adjustable driver with both swing weight and face angle settings. The club looks great, sleek and futuristic with what looks like a supercar spoiler on the back of the clubhead.
From the folks at Callaway: “The combination of Forged Composite and OptiFit Technology makes Callaway’s first driver featuring adjustability the performance leader. The OptiFit Hosel allows players to adjust the face angle for improved accuracy and trajectory while the OptiFit Weights can be adjusted to promote either Draw or Neutral ball flights. Golfers can dial in their ideal settings and hit drives like never before with simple adjustability that matters”
On the driving range
Went to a recent Callaway Demo Day at my local course where I took the Callaway Razr Fit for a test drive. I currently have a Callaway Hyper X in my bag, which has been my driver of choice for the last 4 years. But its time for an upgrade! At address the club feels great, there are no alignment markers or strange colors, just plain and simple black. It also doesnt look as though you are staring down at a letterbox, the clubhead looks decidedly small compared to some of the massive drivers of recent years.
Took a few swings with the club face set square with a draw bias. Hit the ball well, but was hooking too much (probably more to do with my swing than the club!). But the Callaway rep then showed my how simple it was to adjust the clubface and weights, Ikea simple, just a flick on an Allen key, and I had an open clubface. Hit a couple of drives sweetly that flew off the clubface, straight and long, this is a driver I could get to like, very easily.

Birdie. There is a very good chance I could have this driver in my bag in the next few weeks! Golf Digest also recently awarded the Razr Fit the editors choice award in the 2012 Hot List review of latest golf equipment.
Update – April 2012
The Callaway Razr Fit now sits in my golf bag having purchased from the local course Pro Shop. Definitely no regrets. Have stuck with the open face and draw settings which suit my swing and game. The feedback from the driver is excellent and I have increased distance on the drives. Confidence on the tee is crucial and the Razr Fit has bought back confidence to attack the ball off the tee.
