Which Driver would you choose.

14 posts in this topic

I have  choice between 2 drivers and I'm unsure of which one to get. I have hit both and each have their own pros and cons.

1st Driver -  Taylor Made R9 Super Tri .

2nd Driver - Callaway Razr Fit.

Both are 10.5 with regular flex shafts.

All input is welcome.

I would go with the Callaway. I think it is more forgiving than the TM.

Ditch them both and get a geek FS3 head and a shaft to suit your swing! I did and never looked back!

It doesn't matter which I would get, because I'm not you.......honestly, neither would work well for me.

That's not to say that we might not be able to help in your decision though.  Tell us a little about your game.  Why are you looking for a new driver in the first place, and what are the pros and cons of each from your perspective.

Honestly all drivers are forgiving. The MOI for drivers is crazy high, there isn't much difference. Maybe if your looking at a mizuno it might be a bit lower, or a Titleist, but there all very super forgiving.

i have gamed both and would have to say either one is great. i ended up with the razer hawk not the fit in the end due my buddy buying the fit out from under me lol i dont blame him real nice club. but the r9 is very strong in my heart i gamed that for a couple years before moving on to the cally. the only reason i ditched the r9 was the loft i went to a 9.5 from a 10.5 i was hitting a little to high for my liking

Cally has had "better" stock shafts than TM for at least a couple of years, but again "better" in the general sense means nothing to an individual golfer.

i like the Cleveland classic for my game. the sweet spot is big and it cut my slice to a bit more of a fade or straight. i also have a issue of coming across the ball so if i can get a handle on that i would probably be more of a draw player. i prefer the lighter drivers with a shorter shaft also. i will give yards up all day to play from the short grass. I had the razer hawk before this club and hit it decent but missed right a lot. favorite driver all time was the r7 super quad.

Why are you limited to those 2? I loved my SuperTri although it was not the longest head. The Geek DCT is the longest head I've tried I think.

Nice head although I prefer the DotComThis. I've owned 4 FS3, but still have the 1st DCT I ever owned. I've heard much good about the No Brainer also.

Yeah, I currently own and use both the fs3 and the no brainer, both solid heads! I was gonna buy the DCT but then the NB came out so I got that built instead, my next driver will definitely be the DCT though! I've yet to read a bad word about it!

    • Modern course design. Do they really expect us to walk these things?
      Thanks to Whistling Straits there is now a move in Wisconsin to build courses that are walking-only. Erin Hills, the site of the 2017 U.S. Open, has to be walked. http://erinhills.com/ And now, Ben Crenshaw is trying to re-create Bandon Dunes ... http://www.sandvalleygolfresort.com/      
    • 2016 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth
      Many years ago while on a business trip to London I got a chance to play Wentworth West - even back then in 1991 it was a tremendous course that made great use of the rolling woodlands in Surrey. Its a bit sad that the course has now become the architectural plaything of Ernie Els and the European tour - some of the holes now resort to certain modern tricks like artificial water features or shaved greenside banks leading to hazards or chipping areas - perhaps in the next round of changes Ernie and his design elfs will come a bit more to their senses and let the design return a bit more to the features that were there in the original HS Colt design. As far as the tournament goes, it seems like there is a real problem in terms of when to fit it in a place in the schedule where you can get the cream of the European tour to show up.  The Players Championship with its huge reward of 10 years of exemptions for the US tour makes it a bit more compelling as an event and the Nelson and Colonial and Memorial tournaments are all big events on the US tour leading up to the US Open so taking the two weeks time to travel over to England in the start of the summer is perhaps not something a lot of European pros who live in the US are willing to make.  Was exciting to see if Chris Wood was going to choke the event away but nice to see him win - he did have a great front nine but seemed on the verge of letting it get away on the back nine.

      Oh, good Lord! I can't believe that you entered such a completely off the mark reply! I thought you had some smarts. Valuable eyeballs? There are no such things! There are only eyeballs. Advertising rates are established on "number of impressions", in other words the number of people who see your ad. The only "value" established for those "eyeballs" is what age they are, what demographic they belong to. If you're seeking to market to a particular demographic, you might pay more to place an ad on "this" show rather than "that" show. And who said anything about "left and right"? You did! You used the phrase "industry supported research", which is a code phrase of the left to indicate research that is suspect! When have you ever heard "Entertainment Industry supported research", or "Actor supported research" in reply! And please don't try to tell me that government sponsored research is as pure as the wind driven snow. I've just realized that you may be confining your remarks to the field of physics. In that realm, they might be valid. Besides you, me, and a couple of guys behind the tree, who the hell cares? I'm referring more to "agendized" science, like climatology, nutrition, and prescription drugs. As for blind funding, that doesn't mean throwing money at any bunch of yahoos who cook up some hare brained scheme. All it means is that the people who are doing the research don't know where the money is.coming from. So they don't know who is buttering their bread! Let's face it, scientists are people, and they need to make a living. There was a line from "The Big Bang Theory" that, while fictional, makes real world sense. In one episode another physicist, Barry Kripke, is asked why he's still studying string theory. He says, "Hey, I study a theory that can't be proven, I apply for grants, and I spend the money on booze and broads!"
    • "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson
      I will apologize in advance if this post winds up being long. I went out for my first round of golf in 2015, shot a 110, went home, put my clubs on Craigslist, sold them within a day and decided to quit the game. I had been playing for 25 years but only felt I was getting worse. Then, while planning a summer trip to Las Vegas I stumbled upon Paul Wilson's golf videos. I watched a few and couldn't believe how simple he made the golf swing look. I picked up an extra driver from my garage, started trying to swing free and easy and went to the range 2-3 times a week to see if this method would really work. My first time out I shot 97. The second was a 92. The next was an 85. Then, I booked a pair of lessons with Wilson during my vacation. Long story short, Paul Wilson's teaching methods kept me from quitting the game. My handicap is down to an 11, and I am scheduled for two more lessons with him in July so I can confirm somebody who reads this forum is a Wilson disciple. While he can get pretty technical when describing his approach for me it's pretty simple - turn to the top, start the downswing with the lower body and let my arms swing loosely. I expect to break 80 for the first time in my life by the end of the year.               One more thing, which has been noted previously in this thread - if I get off track I immediately go to YouTube, que up a couple of Paul's videos and know exactly what I'm doing wrong. His web site is an incredible resource for me, and I assume it's the same for many others.
