Welcome to Devil Ball's Proving Ground, where we put the latest golf equipment through its paces. Today we take a look at Callaway's RAZR Fit driver.
Testers -- Jonathan Wall -- Handicap: 2.4 / Jay Busbee -- Old enough to drive but not drink
Target Golf Audience -- All Players
Instead of the typical Proving Ground, we're going to change things up for the RAZR Fit.
Usually the reviews on this site are one-sided. One of us gets a club, tests it out and we give our take on it. While there's no problem with that, Busbee and I don't exactly have the same handicap, so it feels like we're only give you a review from one angle.
So we're going to try a dual review this time around. That way you get a review from a both sides of the spectrum. Will it help you make a decision on this club? Who knows. But hopefully this gives you a comprehensive look at one of the most talked-about drivers on the market.
Wall: If there's one thing you never have to worry about with Callaway, it's a busy golf club. I don't know about you, but when I step up over a tee shot, the last thing I want is to be distracted by some funky design staring me in the face. As usual, the RAZR Fit is clean as clean can be. Callaway ditched the two-piece crown design, going back to a one piece that looks good to a traditionalist like yours truly. Throw in some simple red and black paint on the bottom of the club and your have a what I'd consider to be an ideal driver in the looks department.
Also, whoever made the call to nix the I-MIX connector for the OptiFit deserves a serious raise. Not to knock the old design, but the I-MIX connector was bulky and the ferrule broke easily when you tried to adjust (at least in my case). The OptiFit is more inline with a lot of the other adjustable drivers (you adjust from the sole, not the hosel) on the market. The new connector is incredibly sturdy, and when I tested it out to see how easy it was to adjust, I went from open to closed in as little as 20 seconds. Not bad, Callaway.
Busbee: This is just a damn pretty club. Really. I mean, this club is prettier than some of my dates back in college. What, that's not the kind of initial impression you're looking for? All right, this: the RAZR Fit is exceptionally well-balanced, with a feel right out of the sleeve that it's an extension of your arm. This is the kind of club that demands you take it to the range, NOW, and put it to use.Read More »from Devil Ball Proving Ground: Callaway’s RAZR Fit driver
