Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by. 2008 is fast approaching and that means new clubs will be on the way. We'll be taking a look at 2008 golf clubs over the next few weeks and will start with Callaway Golf.
The Callaway 2008 line looks very strong. The line features some technology that we've seen before but also offers some new ideas and designs.
FT-i LCG Driver – This driver looks a lot like the current FT-i on the outside. The differences lie inside… the company has found a way to position weight even deeper and further out on the corners of the clubhead. This produces straighter, lower spinning shots.
FT-i Squareway Wood – It was really just a matter of time before Callaway introduced a square fairway wood. The Squareway woods feature Fusion technology as they combine a steel face and sole with a carbon top. Same idea as the FT-i driver… square shape means high MOI which means straighter shots.
FT Irons – Consider these a "cleaned up" Fusion iron. Callaway has found a way to make the current Fusion iron look a lot better. The company hopes this new design will appeal to the better player.
FT i-Brids – And to think we thought irons couldn't get any more forgiving than the Fusion Wide Sole. This transition set feature bulky, hybrid-like clubs in the long irons, super game improvement mid and short irons. The FT i-Brids still offer all of the Fusion technology found in today's Fusion irons.
Tour i and Tour iX Golf Balls – Two different 4-piece golf balls. The iX is a softer ball… featuring a softer cover and core. Both balls feature a new design that pushes more weight to the outside of the ball for more distance.
Hyper X and Hyper X Tour Driver – Think of these as the driver match to the current X Hot fairway woods. These drivers feature Hyperbolic Face Technology… a technology that helps the ball leave the face faster. The Hyper X line comes with a Fujikura stock shaft.
There you go… a quick preview of the 2008 Callaway line. Be sure to check out some of the clubs on the Callaway Golf Australia site and watch for the North American one to be updated soon.
