For $120 you can get pretty much anything you want provided you're happy with last years model. I bought a Callaway BB Diablo for $138 at the end of the season, I believe the initial price was over $250.

Titleist 909. Usually, Titleist improves with each driver the bring out, and the 909 was a vast improvement over the 907. I don't think you can get a 910 for $120, but I think you'll still do well getting a 909.

Cobra s3, you can get them new for around that. Very forgiving, I hit mine well and I never used to hit a driver well. I like the blur shaft as well

Check out Callaway Preowned, and try to catch something on one of their frequent sales, I recently got a Diablo Octane driver in "Like New" condition (which as far as I could tell was brand new, still had factory plastic wrappings and stickers) for $111.99.

After breaking a few drivers since I had one last, I went back to the Taylormade R7 with a new shaft.  Still my favorite driver ever and can easily be had on eBay for less than $100.

Also, I recently got a used Tour Edge Exotics 3W from a few years ago that I easily hit 10-15 yards farther than any other 3W I've hit.  I haven't hit their drivers but I've heard from guys who have that their drivers also hit the ball a good 10-15 yards farther than other drivers with comparable lofts and shafts.  So consider their drivers from a few years back if you need some distance.

Adams F11. You can get new for around $100 on ebay. Adams offers a variety of shafts so you should be able to find something to your liking. Their "velocity slot" technology is one of the reasons Taylormade bought Adams this year (very similar tech to rocketballz and Taylormade wanted the patent that allows a slot on both the top and bottom of the club which Adamd owns).  You get a lot of technology bang for your buck.

I may be biased. But the 2009 Burner is pretty great, and you could get one new for that price. No adjustability or anything, but still a great club.

The Nickent 4DX Evolver Driver for $35 from rockbottomgolf.com so I would have $85 left over to spend on golf balls and a round or two of golf.

this! also the 07 burner was EASY to hit. i found i was longer with the 09 but the 07 was easier for me to draw and hit straight.

One of my teammates uses it and loves it. I really don't think they have changed much since 2009 except the looks and adjustability. My only dislike is the stock grip wears out really quick, but I guess I have used it for 6 months playing 4 times a week at least...

Mizuno JPX-800.  Id get a 10.5* in regular flex and have a driver that is very friendly and easy to hit but is still a cannon when you hit it flush.

JPX800 is an excellent low spin head. If your already a high spin guy avoid the '09 Burner. I just picked up a minty F11 for $65 delivered this week. The Nickent is a steal and a great head also. Many options to be had for well under your budget.

I agree with all the guys that said Callaway Diablo and Callaway Preowned.  Get one in like new condition.  You can't even tell it's been hit.

    • The Dan Plan - 10,000 Hours to Become a Pro Golfer (Dan McLaughlin)
      Yah but that didn't rhyme . In all seriousness, I think I wrote a similar post pages ago on this thread. My little rhyme was a bit unfair, but when I thought of a combo of words to go with Ericsson, I just had to flush it out. In what might be my final words on the whole thing (assuming the project is not resurrected!): Ericsson: Kinda like @mchepp, I find the whole thing vague about what he was asserting. That's much my fault, but partly his inability to communicate clearly. I doubt it was: "if you dedicate 10,000 hours, then you can be in the top of your field without any prior natural talent." That would certainly be preposterous. But he strikes me as basically a decent person and an academic type who can't organize a desk. I'm sure the media garbled the meaning of his work in various ways, because we wanted to turn it into a feel-good inspirational thing. Ericsson didn't help his cause by not being particularly clear in his media appearances (my opinion, of course).  That's why the line about him being erudite. He seems so academic and unable to explain himself in the real world. Gladwell: Great storyteller who took the general gist of Ericsson (and never even spoke to him, as we later learned) and weaved some great tales around it in Outliers. Beatles and Bill Gates come to mind, off the top of my head. They spent 10,000 hours on stuff (Hamburg bars and computer geek stuff) and THEN when the universe aligned and their skills suddenly were in demand, they were positioned to succeed. I thought that was a clever thesis, and he was a great writer. It was the stuff of cocktail parties for quite a while. But that's how I remember the thesis years later anyway, and the part about the world suddenly finding the skills to be in demand wouldn't have applied to Dan today with golf. We have enough golfers. But the world was looking for rock n roll (Beatles) and it was looking for computer expertise (Gates), so the 10,000 hours were part of their success since they were well-positioned. As the years have gone by since Outliers, Gladwell has generated quite of bit of criticism for his pomposity (easily searchable), so that was a fun line to stick in there. While I'm generally skeptical of a lot of Gladwell's theses, he is very thought-provoking which I enjoy (I do think he nailed the criticism of social media encouraging a lazy sort of activism-- but that's OT). Dan: What I think is "dead" is the idea that you can take the two people's writings above, and then turn that into your own little inspirational project to reinvent your life. So, yes, it's too harsh to say that the "10,000 Hour Theory" is dead (since I admitted I don't even know what precisely Ericsson meant). But I do hope the cottage industry of reinventing your life because of the academic paper on 10,000 hours has run its course. Reinvent your life, absolutely! Take risks. Be bold and passionate. Sure, go for it. But don't pretend you are a scientific experiment. That's the part, I think, should die a quick death. So while I agree with what you write in your post above, @Pretzel, there's my defense of the limerick.

      You're right. I don't know why I said bicep.
    • Jr Tournament play?
      Hello I have few questions? During tournament play with 13 year olds there is a dad who races cart to kids ball that looks fishy as hell very questionable. I'd hate to accuse but looks bad. Also if you get relief from roots of tree should player just approach his ball make free relief drop and play it? Without telling anyone? Or should they let someone know so they are sure what the players doing? Ready to make a scene over couple issues. My son counts every stroke no matter what and seeing disrespectful and dishonest play has really got me going.

      The tee marker isn't a "device" nor is it equipment.
