Callaway claim the RAZR Fit Xtreme Driver will be the longest adjustable driver in the market when it launches. Compared to the previous model the lighter crown combines with the new speed frame face to lower the centre of gravity by 30%. The reduces the amount of backspin by around 300 rpm or more, resulting in distance gains of 6-12 yards, or a club or two less into the green. All good stuff.

There is also a new Adilia Trinity shaft that and combines the benefits of previous shafts like the consistent flex (Multilayer), core structure (S-Core) and tip flex (RIP). We found it felt very good indeed. It is a little heavier at 63-69 grams (depending on flex) and is not the widest looking or feeling shaft. However it is very stable and provides a solid engine for the forged composite head.

The RAZR Fit Xtreme head features 1 and 13 gram weights that are in a new location to improve the adjustability options. The hosel still only has 2 settings away from neutral which is a bit limiting. The open and closed settings can be enhanced with the weights and are a good fine tuning option if you need it.

The head size of the RAZR Fit Xtreme is 440cc in the lower lofts and 460cc in the higher lofts of 11 and 13.5 degrees. Apparently better (Tour) players like the smaller heads for looks and also for the ability to move the ball, but we fall into the better player (non-Tour) category and a 460cc 9.5 degree head would do us nicely, thank you very much.

Other than this minor oversite on Callaway's part, the RAZR Fit Xtreme driver sounds and feel very good at impact. The sound is more solid and slightly duller, as you would expect from a small headed composite driver. Distance-wise it was right up there with other drivers so the fine tuning and fitting service of a Callaway fitter will help you get the most from this driver.

There is also the option to use the optional udesign service to change the colour of the sole plate, crown and grip of your RAZR Fit Xtreme driver, as well as adding some other personalisation. This is a good fun option if you can afford it on top of the premium pricing to make your RAZR Fit Xtreme stand out even more.
