Love the look of this new Callaway driver:

It got me thinking that I'd seen this shape done by Callaway before, so I've just bought one of these:

Let us know how it goes. Interesting club. Was over on The Hackers Paradise and those guys are all big Callaway homers because Callaway does so much sponsorship and advertising there.

They were talking about how amazing it was they moved 36 grams of weight low and back. I kinda wanted to bring up that the original Ryoma put 60g in the back and didn't even have to use carbon! But I let it lie. 😁

Nice eh it.

Apparently it comes with a 44" shaft as standard, which is a pleasant surprise. A couple of reviews:

Callaway offers 2 different stock lengths for the Fusion. With 45.5" you get the 5g weight in the head, 44.5" will get you the 12g weight.

Doesn't do much for me either stew,but seems to be a really good driver for many. Hope to see one in person soon and give it a hit to see what the hype is all about.

found  those m1/m2  driver things the other day,  or thatther nearl got  suffocated by them , it seems theres  20 billion of them over here now on sale run out deals, everywhere !!!


er..,
 so whats  the consensus over there out of these 2 , they the newest ,latest  OEM  drivers  I suspect ?
my  JDM shop  looks like a run out for TM M1/2  whatever the y are  branch office,   seriously there is about 300 of them  to go with mainly speeder shafts, and callways with a huge bolt In the middle of the sole. I have to wade thru the plethora of  spam to get to the meat these days
