FT Tour Drivers
In short, this is the best driver I've ever used. The shaft and head combination is amazing.
Shots go exactly where you tell them to go. High draw, no problem; low stinger, you got it; oops I didn't mean to hit a fade into that lake, too bad. Not the most forgiving as far as direction but the hyberbolic cup face keeps the distance penalty to a surprising minimum. This is great for those who can control their shots but could spell trouble for those who can't (errant shots go further into trouble).
Feedback is very good. I know where I made contact thanks to feedback from the grip and a muted sound thanks to the carbon fiber body. Very soft feeling for a driver. Pured shots almost feel forged. Good flight. If you tend to hit high, this club will lower your ball flight. The ball will just cut through the wind.
Again, awesome club but definitely for better players.

I was looking for a Driver with a Graffaloy Prolaunch Red shaft. This has got it. Very glad I bought it.

I buy new drivers often. I currently have recent Callaway, Taylor, and Ping Drivers. I have been a huge Callaway fan for years now, and I love my FT-9 Tour (probably the best I've owned. But, I really wanted to try the FT-Tour. I read several reviews and was excited about receiving it as the best of the pre-Razor Callaways. I found it to be a disappointment compared to my FT-9 Tour with Diamana Red Board. The small head and Matrix Ozik X-con - 5 shaft on my FT-Tour have nothing over the FT-9 Tour. I was especially disappointed with the grip. It was much smaller than any Callaway Driver I've ever owned (many). I just don't get the hype for this driver. FT-9 Tour is a much better buy in my opinion.

First day i used i hit a 350 yd drive i was like wow! Went from a stiff shaft to a x-stiff with the ft-tour and it feels amazing

I would buy this product again and again
This shaft is as stiff as a piece of steel, but if your swing speed is up there, boom out of here! It is so stiff that without my golf glove I can't keep it from moving in my hands. Great Driver shaft combo! I am back up to 330 yard drives with this club, I was down to 300 with my old FT-3 w/ 757 Speeder and thought it was just cause I was getting old.

Bit Heavy but Wow!
Bought the FT-Tour after much consideration and having tried the FT-9. The FT-9 was more forgiving and I needed the draw, however, after playing the Tour along with my new Cobra irons, my game is GAME!...I get great distance when I hit the ball right and this club (8.5) forces me to concentate more off the drive, which I needed. I was tired of coming up short on my drives and second 3 wood. This summer I won two tournaments, and cut my handicap in half...Thanks Callaway!! The club is a bit heavy, but this also forces me to swing a little slower and straigher...

Huge off the tee! A well hit drive with the Stiff flex shaft and mid to high swing speed is very capable of 300+ yard drives landing in the fairway. Makes the iron shot into the green much easier with a 9 iron rather than a 6 iron. Should lower your handicap several strokes if you have the right swing speed.

Great club but cracked after only 1.5 mo
The club cracked after only 1.5 months and 5 rounds. I read a similar post on here about the exact same thing happening so Im hoping I have a better experience with customer service then they did.On a positive note, I hit this club more accurately (due to the x stiff shaft) and farther then ever. I just hope Callaway steps up and replaces it asap.
