The Callaway Fusion FT-5 Driver is a traditionally-shaped titanium and carbon composite driver, with 50g of discretionary weight and Opti-Fit weighting system. Which one is easier to shape the ball? Once I got to the range I warmed up and then hit probably 20 balls all dead straight right to my target… BUT my ball flight was lower than I would of liked. Benefits to the High Handicapper: So I tee it a little lower and back a little in my stace and problem fixed. Found the Golfbidder site and located a callaway FT5 HT driver which they said was in good condition. The price has now dropped due to the new IQ coming out but I will be thrilled to try my club in the spring.

I had purchased an FT-3 from ebay and received an FT-i by mistake. Well worth the money. So, it could be the new shaft you are using, the draw bias, or both.
With this club all you got to do is the basics. Would have been a great day except for the rest of my game was poo. Both are well worth the hefty price-tags. Played my first round with it, and I made the right decision. Interesting side-effect of playing the fti for a month or so, I find when I get my old driver out at the range, I hit it much better than I used to. I will trade this driver in for a loss I am afraid for something else.
Used the Ft 5 draw twice out-drove my Callaway by 30 yds.

But more importantly, now consistently hitting even more fairways. Better than other drivers including hi-boreXL, titleist d series, nike sumo and Taylor made quad.
The headcovers are different. I was fuson an older I think that is a great shaft so you might want to consider it before trying any of the other more expensive shafts.
Today, you can buy them just about anywhere for bucks. However, the FT-i has a slightly longer shaft, which is not a good thing to have when one struggles with control. The guy I play with looked at it and laughed. I do the slice thing regularly. So far, my distance has increased by 20 yards but far more importantly, I am hitting far more callawqy.
If you put a big outside-in swing on it, the FT-i is still capable of peeling a nice banana for you. Much more confidence on the tee. Lighter than titanium, this construction improves stability and distance. The draw bias allows me to really slug the ball and maintain great controll re-gaining the minimum loss of distance.
There were little complaints about the 9 degree GBB besides low trajectory. The FT-5 went longer, but I could really spray them wildly offline with a poor swing. Will it cure your slice? I hit the second on the heel and the ball leaked a bit to the right. Fsuion back to my old soundless 11 degree Callaway Fusion and started to launch the ball again but my outside in swing sends many good hits to the right.
In sum, have it measured.
I could not stop smiling. On the plus side it hits very, very, long. But at address, this driver is all business. I traded in my old Callaway X for the T5 13 deg loft, draw bias.

But the FT-5 was very nice as well. As advertised, it does want to hit a straight ball. If you have suggestions or more to say about the FT-i…let me know.
