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.
