Exo-Cage weight repo­si­tioned for more for­give­ness Golfers seek­ing both dis­tance and ac­cu­racy off the tee HOW MUCH £369 (driver) and £229 (fairway) KEY TECH AIMED AT

Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

Twelve years on from the orig­i­nal Fu­sion woods, Call­away has rein­vented the line via an aerospace­grade ti­ta­nium ex­oskele­ton called an Exo-Cage. This has been paired with a crown and sole made from tri­ax­ial car­bon, which is over 65 per cent less dense than ti­ta­nium and more than 35 per cent thin­ner than Call­away’s pre­vi­ous com­pos­ite ma­te­rial, to re­lo­cate 35g in­side the Big Bertha Fu­sion driver.

The cen­tre of grav­ity (CG) has there­fore been op­ti­mised and the mo­ment of in­er­tia (MOI) in­creased by 17 per cent com­pared to XR16 – a huge jump that in­creases for­give­ness.

This driver also in­cor­po­rates Speed Step tech­nol­ogy for a more aero­dy­namic head and comes in two shaft-length op­tions: 44.5” for en­hanced con­trol or 45.5” for greater dis­tance po­ten­tial.

A for­giv­ing Big Bertha Fu­sion fairway joins the driver, shar­ing its ex­tremely high MOI de­sign to boost off-cen­tre per­for­mance. Its crown is also made from tri­ax­ial car­bon and is 78 per cent lighter than a ti­ta­nium crown.

Avail­able from Septem­ber 30, the driver comes in 9˚, 10.5˚ and 13.5˚ and costs £369. The fairway comes in 15˚, 18˚ and 21˚ at £229.
