Golf Monthly Verdict

The original Callaway FT-i was undoubtedly one of the straightest drivers the Golf Monthly team had ever seen. The criticism was that it lacked distance. This modified shape promises to be more aerodynamic and we certainly noticed the extra yards. We reckon the modified shape is also better to look down on and the weighting helps square the face at impact. The Callaway FT-iQ is not a driver for those who see shaping the ball as a priority, but the majority of players will be impressed by the straight drives it helps to produce. Where next?

Callaway FT-iQ driver video review 

Inspired by a fighter plane and a supercar, the Callaway FT-iQ is the company's next generation square driver. The futuristic head is made from a combination of materials a carbon composite, titanium, aluminium and a dense metal alloy. This lightweight design means that 18% of the club's weight is made up of the external weight unit (that you can see attached to the back of the head).

The head shape has been made more aerodynamic, which helps to increase clubhead speed for added distance and the centre of gravity is lower and deeper. The standard model has draw weighting to help minimise slices while an FT-iQ Tour version is also available with neutral weighting in the head.
