Golf club construction and technology is forever changing. As the game becomes more mainstream, manufacturers realize the need to build clubs to appeal to more than just accomplished players. Game-improvement clubs, hybrid ironwoods and big drivers are commonplace. While forged blades and aerodynamic woods are still made for the accomplished players, many irons and woods are made to fit recreational and pro-level players alike.
Callaway FT irons (3-iron through pitching wedge, right-handed) include elements of a game-improvement clubs and the workability of a player's irons. They contain Callaway's special cavity insert and signature hosel/shaft construction and are regarded as some of the hottest clubs on the market. Though no longer in production, preowned Callaway FT irons are still available on the secondary market.
Callaway FT iron heads are made with a three-piece design: stainless steel, notch-weighted body, Callaway's special thermoplastic urethane cavity insert and titanium face. Heads also contain a modern version of the signature Bore-Through hosel design, where shafts extend through the hosels to the rear of the soles. The set is slightly strong-lofted: a 21-degree 3-iron through a 45-degree pitching wedge.
Off the rack, FT irons are fitted with Nippon NS Pro 1100 steel shafts, available in Uniflex, or the Callaway Golf FT Iron Graphite shaft with light, regular or stiff flex. Custom steel shafts from True Temper, Royal Precision and Nippon, as well as CG M75i Tour Graphite, are available.
Light Flex Option
Callaway's Light Flex option comes by way of the Callaway Golf FT Iron Graphite shaft. The Light Flex version offers a D-0 to D-1 swing weight (D-0 3-iron to 9-iron and D-1 on the pitching wedge). The option is aimed at seniors and players with slow swing speeds needing a low kick point and torque to move through impact without straining their backs, arms and shoulders.
Callaway FT irons are unique clubs. Each is comfortable and produces low and penetrating ball flights. FTs are small enough to provide solid workability for players who like to shape shots and large and forgiving enough to help mid-handicappers enjoy the game. Notch-weighting and the thermoplastic urethane insert (TPU SenSert) contain a low center of gravity behind the sweet spot, getting the ball up quickly.
Clubs fitted with Callaway Golf FT Iron Graphite in Light Flex are easy to hit. Slower, more controlled players can rely on an extremely active and responsive kick-point, which allows the titanium face to spring the ball into action.
