Excerpt: I have the Callaway FT-9 Driver with 10* loft and the stock regular shaft in neutral set up in my bag now for the past 10 weeks and I can honestly say that I am now hitting the ball at least 5-10 yds further than my older Ping G10 driver. The Ft-9 I feel sits more square at address and promotes a very good flight of the ball both into the wind and wnd assisted.
Summary: Great looking driver, great stiff shaft. I was a little worried about the built in draw. Sure enough, if I lose form, I end up w/a snap hook. This is of course my fault. Overall an above avg. driver and a great price.
Do yourself a favor...Buy an FT-9. I will never go back to another Brand

Summary: I had a "Knock-off" 7.5 driver (Taylor Made with Blue Pro-Launch -- Low Kick) for a couple years that was never consistent, usually I skied it too high and often ended on the right side of the fairway or worse. My swing speed isn't crazy fast, but I could pop it out there 250 yards. BUT only if my swing was "perfect" every time. I suspected I needed a stiff lower-launch shaft with a quality Head. I just needed a more forgiving Driver.
Summary: The FT-9, although an older model, still performs at a high level. The club I purchased was/is in excellent shape and the ball flies off the face. I'm glad I made the purchase and am always excited to step up to the first tee and let 'er fly.
Summary: I bought the Callaway FT-9 draw bias driver, with the iMix shaft by Fugikura. I had an Ft-IQ that I had to close the face to eliminate my slice. But this FT -9 draw is great. I wanted a draw bias to make it easier for me to hit it straight. I am hitting the ball straighter and farther than ever. I gained at least 20 yards. My worst shot is a little pull if I. Reach for the ball. The club cost me $36 including shipping.
Summary: This driver is scary long and very playable. I can work this club left and right at ease or simply just pound the ball straight down the middle. It has very nice balance and a pleasing sound at impact, but buy it for the way it plays and you won't be dissapointed.
