The FT-5 Driver is engineered to be the worlds fatest driver. So within the Fusion family, you have red, orange, yellow, and grey on different products. The FT-5 is a refined, evolutionary update to the FT-3 driver from mid I played with this driver on Thursday 5th May two days after I bought it and drove yards and scored 40 stableford for the first time. I think it is forgiving but still efficient, like most of my clubs nike sumo irons, mizuno mx hybrid.. Distance wise both similar maybe the ft5 has a slight edge ; Ball does seem to explode more off the club face. Already had Callaway FT3 draw with 10 degree loft with regular shaft but found it very hard to get the ball up and over certain trees on my course.

So far, my distance has increased by 20 yards but far more importantly, I am hitting far more fairways. The Callaway Fusion FT-5 Driver is a traditionally-shaped titanium and carbon composite driver, with 50g of discretionary weight and Opti-Fit weighting system.
But know going in that the FT-i design will keep your ball in play, but not produce miraculous distance on bad swings.
Callaway FT-i/FT-5 Driver Review (Clubs, Review) – The Sand Trap
I wuld rate the driver as average at best. This has totally changed my game. I wonder if it was a last-minute idea, and the headcovers and grips were already designed and ordered. Today, you can buy them just about anywhere for bucks.
The FT-5 and FT-i again share several similar touches. Hi All- Since purchasing my FT-5 Callaway see aboveone disappointment this summer was the stock grip of the club. On the course today, I hit some monster drives with seemingly minimal effort.
However, a bucket of balls, changes to my set up, a few explatives and alas I began to see a flicker of light at the palatable end of the range. I have been using callasay stock TaylorMade Burner for the last 2 months, and even though when I nail one straight, I can get to maybe one or two every 5 drivesI find that I am nowhere near consistent enough or have the control at a faster swing to warrant using this — more than anything, the driver is killing my scores.
The only thing fuxion could be tweaked is the sound, too much like an aluminum baseball bat, but hey I can live with it based on the performance. I must retract my earlier comments about the newly purchased FT It has the performance you expect from a top-of-the-line driver, and has enough options to make it appeal to nearly any level of golfer. Hit it square and it goes, and with off center hits, less mileage lost as compared to the FT-i. Rt5 sound at impact is better, with a louder metallic smack and only the slight hint of the plastic sound that plagued the original Fusion driver and lingered a bit with the FT I hit a power fade….
I never liked Callaway products until I tried this driver. I love the clubhead but hate the stock shaft. Get yourself a Matrix Shaft. Got my FT5 13 degree regular lub today and rushed to the club to use it.
I gave the straight FT-i a try on a callawzy day a few weeks ago. I have tried other drivers since then, but kept this one.
Excellent club for anyone like me who tends to fade the ball – helps straighten drives. Creating a massive 50gms of discretionary weight for increased distance, accuracy and shot-shaping. It would also be a lot easier on my pocket.
Callaway Fusion Ft-5 10 Degree Driver Graphite Stiff Flex Good 236229 Golf
The 9 Degree Stiff, Draw version seemed to fit my swing better than the Neutral, which had a more consistent slice. What I hear from retailers is that the FT-i gets a lot of interest, but that more golfers end up buying the FT-5 due to the price and performance. I hope I caplaway the right decision.
I bought the FT-i 9. Had the tp last season changed it to the superquad at the start of this season.
The ball is so hot of the face it vusion unreal. The sound took a little getting used tosimilar to whacking a 59 Buick hub-cap with a cresent wrench. The FT-i should help with your swing plane in the back and forward swing.
