  • (1888PressRelease) November 24, 2012 - New Delhi - Callaway Golf today introduced the RAZR Fit Xtreme™ Driver globally, the longest fully adjustable driver the Company has ever measured.In India, the RAZR Fit Xtreme™ Driver was introduced by the legendary golfer Gary Player, also known as the Black Knight, amidst corporate honchos and HNIs at Hotel Crowne Plaza Today, Gurgaon. It was truly an incredible evening with Gary Player as he spoke about how this driver gives an outstanding performance on the greens. Available to golfers on January 04, 2013, the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver debuts new technologies to advance overall performance and promote distance gains over its predecessor, the award-winning, Tour-provenRAZR Fit® Driver.

    Headlining the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver is a powerful new Speed Frame™ Face Technology that optimizes stiffness and stress distribution across the face for more efficient energy transfer. This produces more ball speed and consistent distance, even on off-center contact. Among other improvements, Callaway's new driver features the lowest Center of Gravity (CG) of any adjustable driver, further fueling distance gains, and a new weighting system that offers golfers a greater range of shot shaping options.

    Expressing his excitement about the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver, Gary Player said, "If I had to choose between my wife and this driver, I would miss her. It is truly surprising that Callaway comes up with such great innovations every time and the RAZR Fit Xtreme gives the fastest ball speed resulting in an excellent and smooth performance on the course."

    "The RAZR Fit XtremeDriver is worthy of its extreme designation," said Dr. Alan Hocknell, SVP, Research & Development, Callaway Golf. "We worked tirelessly to improve on the best distance characteristics of our longest drivers, and the result is incredibly fast ball speed off the Speed Frame Face, plus the lowest CG of any adjustable driver in golf. This driver is very long and consistent. It will not be matched."

    "The Razr Fit Xtreme Driver is the longest adjustable driver that Callaway has ever measured that has overtaken the Razr Fit in terms of distance, consistency and overall performance. Callaway's continued investment in R&D has led to this latest development that helps the average golfer find more enjoyment from the game. 2013 marks an extremely exciting year for Callaway in terms of new products that are set to hit the market with a bang! New Looks, New Improvements, Unmatchable Performance and No Compromises." said Vivek Mehta, Country Head, Callaway Golf India.

    Callaway Staff Professionals like Luke List have already seen tremendous distance gains during player testing with RAZR Fit Xtreme. List, who this year led all six major professional Tours in driving distance with a 324 yard average off the tee, gained 16.6 yards in total distance over his current RAZR Fit gamer by adding .6 mph ball speed and reducing his backspin by nearly 500 rpm with the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver.

    The RAZR Fit XtremeDriver is further differentiated by patented technologies that allow Callaway Research & Development, the largest team in the industry, to both design and configure the driver to promote optimal distance. These technologies and other features, which are outlined below, work in conjunction with two premium stock shaft offerings to deliver the longest fully adjustable driver in golf.

    Speed Frame Face Technology

    Speed Frame Face Technology is a combination of VFT® and Hyperbolic Face™ Technology, resulting in stress distribution across the titanium face for a larger, more consistent sweet spot and increased ball speed. The Speed Frame Face also saves weight that is redistributed in the clubhead to improve the CG position and maximize MOI, which leads to optimized ball flight and forgiveness. Additionally, the Speed Frame Face on the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver features a tighter bulge radius than the RAZR Fit Driver for a more preferred look at address, along with more consistent sidespin and dispersion.

    Forged Composite Crown
    Callaway has been working with Forged Composite™ -- an advanced carbon fiber material -- for more than four years. Using this patented, lightweight material in the crown of the driver, which weighs only 12.1 grams and is the lightest crown in golf, allows Callaway engineers to precisely position saved weight to achieve the lowest CG in any fully adjustable driver.This Lower CG promotes higher ball speed and less spin off the tee for more distance.

    OptiFit Technology
    Two OptiFit® Technology elements make up the RAZR Fit Xtreme's improved adjustability: the OptiFitHosel and OptiFit Weights. The hosel adjusts the face angle to Open, Square or Closed positions to improve accuracy and trajectory while allowing golfers to dial in their preferred look at address. The 13- and 1-gram OptiFit Weights shift the clubhead's center of gravity to promote noticeable Draw or Neutral ball flights.
    (Higher lofts have more draw bias than lower lofts.)

    Broader Trajectory and Shot Shaping Options
    Callaway's RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver comes in more lofts that incorporate a greater range of face angle options, CG bias options and CG height differences than the RAZR Fit Driver. Callaway has optimized the performance in each loft to suit the needs of the players that will use it. For example, the 8.5-, 9.5- and 10.5-degree clubheads are 440cc (versus 460cc for other lofts) and feature a more open face angle.

    Stock Shaft Options
    The RAZR Fit Xtreme will feature two tour grade shafts as stock offerings. The primary shaft, the Aldila Trinity, combines Aldila's three patented design technologies (RIP, S-Core, Micro Laminate) into a single shaft design. A secondary offering, the Matrix 7M3 Black Tie, is a heavier, lower launching, lower spinning option for higher head speed and higher spin players. Neither shaft will be modified from the product available in the aftermarket.

    The RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver will be available for the new product introduction retail price of INR 25990.
