Looking for classic/older driver for backup

5 posts in this topic

Just like the title says.

I'm looking for a classic driver, with 460 cc head, quite easy to hit, something that 3-7 years old, cost about $100 or less, just for a backup or traveling set. Thinking about Ping G/I-series, Titleist 909/905 or Callaway.

Any good ideas?

How old?  $100 would likely buy you a 2 year old driver off of ebay.

Do you want to look at one of the square drivers that were popular at that time?  The 910 from Titleist is out of your price range, but I would think the surefit adjustable hosel would be worth the $50 over your $100 budget.

Ping golf clubs typically always have a resale value higher than everybody else.  But the G15 is available for around $100

The G20 is closer to $150

Callaways' FTiZ can be had for around $75

My point is, scour EBAY.  Drivers have a terrible resale value, and people tend to upgrade every 2 years or less, so generally speaking a $300 driver 2 years old can be had for 1/4~1/2 of its first run price.

Many thanks for your recommendations.

G15/20 and 910D2 seems interesting.

and go to the local courses and look in the clearance bins (the retail stores have used racks)  some golf websites have used gear areas

I have a Nike Sasquatch that I keep because I just won't get any money for it and it's a good driver.  So it's my backup.

I think if you look you can get a Ping G20 to your spec new for $160 from Carls Golfland.

I am also going to guess you might like it better than your current driver.
