Ryo was not supposed to be using this as he has his heart set on the Optiforce. however he got itchy, tried this and request that he uses this instead. no surprise as it may look the same but has a different disposition compared to the Optiforce.

in fact it will come in 3 versions:

1. TA (430cm3), 9deg – Strong trajectory driver with spinless. Deeper face, round shape, and shallow back head. Lowest CG, Semi-Fade bias

2. 440cm3 , 9.5deg – Mid trajectory driver with gaining carry and run. Traditional shape.  Neutral bias, Low CG

3. 460cm3, 10.5deg – High trajectory with carry. Slightly larger than the 440 and round shape. Semi- Draw bias, Low CG

Here's how it look up front and some info of its specs.

Adjustable Triangle weighting to have lower and forwarder CG
•   7g weight is installed in the head. Additional 2g and 12g weights are included.



Advanced OptiFit Technology
•   Advanced OptiFit Hosel allows you to increase or decrease loft to have optimum trajectory such as high launch angle and lower back spin.
•   CG bias can be adjusted to Draw or Neutral to optimize shot shape 



Speed Frame Forged Cup Face
A combination of VFT® and Hyperbolic Face Technology creates a larger sweet spot and increases ball speeds across the titanium face for longer, more consistent distance 


   
Sound rib construction inside of the head
•   Sound rib construction creates solid sound for TA and high pitch sound for 440 and 460.



Hope you will find the info useful in planning your next driver.

Legacy.....primarily for the Japan and Korean market....

i remember i was once "accused' by an american customer for fitting him a set of Callaway which was not found on the Cally US website. When he was pointed to the Japan website, he was very pleased cos his Japanese wife translated for us.

Phi will not be using these for the time being because of the wider market appeal that he is supposed to draw.

Ryo on the other hand is the perfect figure to do the honours. he turned down higher offers from 2 other brands because he tried their equipment and decided that he cannot get used to them. So its not just money talk......unlike another prominent player.

The old legacy is good. imagine this one is on steroids...... 

the 460 will fit most players but the 440 is more compact and has the advantage of weight adjustability over the Optiforce. The TA will be the muted version. 

Of course the Legacy Platinum uses a different grade of titanium known as 8-1-1 for its Speedframe. 8-1-1 Titanium has the highest tensile strength and lowest density of any of the titanium alloys today.

Eric

A question on the Advanced Optifit hosel found on the Optiforce and the Legacy Black

Previously, optifit as found in my Razr Fit was simply set to Open Face, Closed Face and Neutral Face. Next the fade/draw bias is influenced by the weight ports. However, I understood that when opening the face, the loft is reduced and vice versa, closed face increase the loft.

With the new advance optifit, now we have loft adjustability and lie adjustability. Fade/Draw adjustment and no face angle adjustment. It's almost like the Titleist Surefit.

So will the loft/face angle connection stays? i.e. If I reduce the loft, the face angle OPENS. and if the loft is increased, the face angle CLOSES?

Want a new driver for 2014 and this legacy black sure looks chio but Cally has so many choices drunken  I like the simplicity of old optifit. How about the Xhot Pro?
