Sharpen up your driving: Callawayâ€™s Razr Hawk produces uncompromised distance and accuracy
Callawayâ€™s new Razr Hawk driver hasnâ€™t taken long since being introduced to start making it into the headlines.
Back-to-back wins by Alvaro Quiros and Thomas Bjorn during the European Tourâ€™s early season â€˜desert swingâ€™ really got tongues wagging, as has the Spaniardâ€™s 12-yard gain in average driving distance this year alone.
The secret of the Razr Hawkâ€™s success is undoubtedly Forged Composite, which is lighter, stronger and more precise than titanium. It has been used in the sole and crown, allowing engineers to control their thickness for a light, stable clubhead.
In the words of Callawayâ€™s senior vice president of R&D, Dr Alan Hocknell: â€œWith new materials and advances in technology, weâ€™ve been able to produce an uncompromised line that doesnâ€™t sacrifice one performance characteristic for another. This is the complete package.â€
â€¢ Available in lofts of 9.5Â°, 10.5Â°, 11.5Â° and 13Â°, with a 46â€ shaft, while the Tour version comes in 8.5Â°, 9.5Â° and 10.5Â° with a shaft length of 45.5â€.
â€¢ The streamlined surface contours reduce drag from the downswing by 43% compared to the FT-9, giving higher impact speeds.
â€¢ Features an Aldila RIP Graphite shaft with lower torque as standard to give better players the performance and feel they want from their shaft.
â€¢ Chemical milling has removed excess material for precision thickness across the clubface
â€¢ Each standard driver model is available in either a draw or neutral configuration
â€¢ Forged composite fibres reinforce 67% of the Razr Hawkâ€™s clubhead
â€¢ RRP: Â£329
