Callaway RAZR Fit Driver Review
Hi Everyone – thanks for stopping by. Today we are reviewing the Callaway RAZR Fit Driver. This driver offers optimal adjustability and is perfect for the golfer who enjoys futzing with their clubs to find optimal situational performance.
The RAZR Fit catches your eye with a glossy black finish and has a slightly deeper face than previous models. It is loaded with technology for the player who likes to tinker with their equipment. The RAZR Fit features an OptiFit hosel that adjusts the face angle in an open, square, and closed position. In addition, on the sole there are two weight ports on the toe and heel. The OptiFit weights (12 grams and 2 grams) shift the center of gravity to promote a draw or neutral ball flight. The club I tested was a 10.5 degree driver with a stock Aldila Rip shaft in stiff flex. Callaway did an awesome job with the appearance of the club and I rate it 9 out of 10.
Currently, I play the RAZR Hawk driver so I was eager to try the RAZR Fit. After only a few swings, I realized the RAZR Fit is one of the longest drivers I have tested. The ball jumped off the club face and hit towering drives. The ball flight was extremely high, yet the ball just carried forever. I was hitting it easily 15 yards longer that my RAZR Hawk. It won’t be long before the RAZR Fit will make its way into my bag.
I tested the RAZR Fit in the square, open and closed position. The OptiFit weights stayed in the neutral position, 2 grams in the heel and 12 grams in the toe. In the closed position, the ball flight never produced a gentle draw. It was either a hook or straight shot. However, the trajectory did come down slightly in the closed position. In the open position I managed to still hit it straight or with a slight fade. Unlike the closed position, the open position never made a significant change in ball flight. Overall, I preferred the neutral position. In the neutral position, the ball flight started straight and finished straight. The RAZR Fit hit the ball great in the correct setting and therefore I rate it 10 out of 10.
Callaway did a great job with the RAZR Fit driver. Impact makes more of a crack than the dull sound produced by previous models. The ball just takes off at impact, regardless of where I struck the ball on the club face. The weighting of the club feels nice. In fact, the swing weight is a D6 and the Aldila shaft weighs 60 grams. The club feels great throughout the swing and impact giving it a rating of 9 out of 10.
The RAZR Fit is on the more expensive side with a price tag of $399. However, it is in line with the other adjustable drivers such as the R11s and the Titleist D2 and D3 drivers. The RAZR Fit outperformed the RAZR Hawk and it will most likely make it’s way into my bag. I really liked the RAZR Fit driver, it should be one of the top performing and selling drivers with a 10 out of 10 rating.
