Martin Hopley

The Callaway FT-9 driver is one of the best composite material drivers we have tested.

Unlike most other composite drivers, the sound was very solid and the flight of the ball was excellent. Unlike past FT models, the FT-9 looks very good and more 'powerful' at address.

The thick titanium top line has been reduced and we think this is a style that will appeal to a wider audience than Callaway diehards. What might not appeal though is the price which is at the premium end of the market and the performance of the club does just enough to justify it, so make sure you get it custom fitted to make the most of your money.

If you find the flight a little high for you try the Tour or Tour Draw version where the weight is slightly further back, although the face is that extra degree open which better players will like.
