It's because they play a trick on your mind and make you rotate your wrists faster and flip through the release.
You might like it for the look, for the shape of the face, for the sound, for the weight, for the shaft length, or for the set-up.  Or all of the above.  Probably not many other drivers share all of those attributes, but poring over the manufacturer specification sheets might help you narrow down the options.   One other option that might be the closest to a Callaway DOT is the Callaway FTiz Tour.  I think it might be a little more forgiving (and makes a neat "thwack"...
Pretty crazy, I know.  I got it from a prominent ebay seller (rhymes with malice golf) that seems to deal in a lot of Adams prototype gear.  It's a 5 wood, the head is nice, but the shaft, marked "s flex", felt like a senior or soft-regular at best.  The shaft has the Adams golf logo on one side and the other side says "Supershaft tight lies plus lightweight 70 gram FW".  So I started by pulling the grip off and found just a layer of regular one-sided masking tape under...
I recently pulled a shaft from a modern Adams fairway wood because it seemed WAY too flexible for a "stiff" (this was an Adams TL Supershaft, probably from a box set) and I discovered it was fiberglass!  No kidding, I had to cut it at the hosel and the soft glass fibers were all over the place.  No carbon in this one anywhere.  I get that they don't specify "graphite" anywhere on the club but I thought for sure that was obsolete tech.  I guess some factory in China figured...
Dunlop is better quality than Wilson (non-staff) and all the other department store brands.  I have a lot of their clubs in my backup bag.  Foremost irons (by Dunlop) are as good as any cast CB and are typically a ripoff of some well-known design (mine are basically a cleaner-looking Big Bertha).  I also have a beautiful "Hexsert" #9 putter and a 60 degree Vokey wannabe wedge.  One I thing I have always noticed is that the grips they put on are quality items so they feel...
Credit due for getting the speed right but that break at the end looked a little suspicious.  I can putt lights-out into a funnel too.
 This is one of the ways Patrick Reed cheats.  He uses a 2014 Pro V1 on par 5's for more distance and a 2012 Pro V1 on par 3's for more spin.  All his former college teammates know about it but the USGA hasn't caught on yet.
I still use a Wilson 1200LT 55 degree "SI" that my dad bought me in 1992 from Kmart to fill out my high school set.  I am convinced it is every bit the club as a Vokey wedge.  The design is timeless, as it looks just like a modern Vokey, and the finish is still excellent after well over a hundred rounds and just a re-grip.  Don't believe the hype (for wedges).
It's a tough question with all the options out there.  First, what is the best/easiest/most-accurate 3 wood off the tee in stock form?  Callaway 3deep would seem to fit the bill with it's massive head.  But this is also designed to be a low-spinning club so it could be more demanding than a high-lofted driver.  Next, what is the best/easiest/most-accurate driver off the tee in stock form?  That sounds like a 12 degree variant of some driver with a 45" length like a...
The trick is in the premise of the question, where the option to "switch" doors is thrown in as a "twist".  An equivalent proposal, worded differently, would be the following:   “Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors. Behind one door is a car, behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say #1, and the host says "Would you prefer to choose both of the other two doors instead of just the one you selected?  Switch and I will give you the...
