|Callaway Golf Introduces the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver|
Headlining the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is a powerful new Speed Frame™ Face Technology that optimizes stiffness and stress distribution across the face for more efficient energy transfer. This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-center contact. Among other improvements, Callaway's new driver features the lowest Center 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.
"The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is worthy of its extreme designation," said Dr.

The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is further differentiated by patented technologies that allow
Speed 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 maximize MOI, which leads to optimized 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.
Forged Composite Crown
Callaway has been working with Forged Composite™ -- an advanced carbon fiber 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 Callaway 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.
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 center 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
Callaway's 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. Callaway has optimized the performance in each loft to suit the needs of the players that will use it. For example, the 8.5-, 9.5- and 10.5-degree clubheads are 440cc (versus 460cc for other lofts) and feature a more open face angle.
Stock Shaft Options
The RAZR Fit Xtreme will feature two tour grade shafts as stock offerings. The primary shaft, the Aldila Trinity, combines
For golfers who are interested in personalization 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 customizable with eight different color 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.
