Okay. So I haven't demo'd the FT-iz nor the FT Tour yet. But they've got some serious shoes to fill. I've been playing the FT-9 Tour for a few rounds now and it's unreal!! I've got it with the Fubuki Tour 63 and it's amazing!! Just amazing!! This driver is just so straight. Just SO forgiving. I missed it on the heel and it gave me a cut shot that still hit the fwy. When I finally got warmed up, dang!!

 

Well. I've been hitting a ton of fairways with this thing and can't wait for the weather to get warmer!

They have definitely hit on a winner for sure.

I can't agree with you more, it is by far the best Callaway driver, let alone driver on the market....it scares me what the ft-tour is capable of. no doubt will try it.

I can't see how the FT Tour will be any better. Seriously. It's more forgiving than the Pope, it's incredibly stable with the Fubuki Tour 63, and I love the sound!

I've seen Phil hit it on person. Whoa. He hit it a country mile high and a country mile long!! Best sound I've ever heard!! Including my FT9 Tour

I hit it yesterday into a net and it felt good and looked good. That's one of my problems with most Callaway drivers, they just look odd (and usually hooded). I think Callaway finally got it right.

While I currently play a Titleist 909D3, I must agree that the FT-9 Tour is one of the most solid drivers out there today. A buddy of mine plays one and he absolutely loves it and he is consistently long and straight with that club.

Well. I thought the FT5 Tour was horrible. Didn't care for the sound. The forgiveness was just okay. I was sorely disappointed as I dearly loved the FT-3 Tour. The FT9 Tour has brought the glory back and it seems like the FT Tour may have gone the extra step!

My other buddy plays one with the Diamana Whiteboard 73x and it's just sick!

I've heard fubuki's are the way to go with the FTs but whatever works.

I will concur with that. Dang. It's just so straight. I can hit a baby fade too when I want too nthe Fubuki 63 dispersion and feel is superb.

I am still playing my FT-3 Tour. I tried the FT-9 Tour and just could not find the right head/shaft combo. I am going to try the FT-Tour but have hit the J38 from Bridgestone and have one of them on the way as soon as they get them in at Bridgestone.

What shaft in the FT3 Tour?? I had the NVS 65 and smoked it. Hit three of the longest drives of my life with it. Still don't know why I sold it. Prolly 'cause I was stupid. LOL

IMO, the FT Tours are the best looking driver on the market. Small head, open face, delicious! Excellent pop at impact too.

Anybody go with the I-MIX? if so what shafts are you using?

 

 

Yes, mine is the i-mix. I have the Fubuki Tour 63 stiff in there now. And will eventually get a real Diamana Whiteboard (unlike that fake-a$$ TP Diamana WB65 that sure doesn't feel like a real Diamana Whiteboard), and I was even thinking about the Protopype too. I like hitting a dependable baby fade.

I'm playing an FT-9 Tour IMix right now with an Ion Whiteboard and it's fantastic. That being said the FT Tours are out now and they look incredible. Reminded me a lot of the 983E only blown up a little bit. Deep face, nice pear shape, long hosel. Can't wait to hit it although I'll probably wait until after my trip to Bandon Dunes in April.
