Re: Differences between Titleist drivers;975d 975j 983kHad the 975D and 983K for quite a while at times. Liked them both. 983K bigger than 975D. Both excellent though. 983K a bit easier to hit. Personally, I don't like either of them as much as my lovely 983E which I've had for a while and will take to the grave .
Re: Differences between Titleist drivers;975d 975j 983kIt looks like some of the 983K's are nonconforming while most should still conform. Here's a photo that should help.
Re: Differences between Titleist drivers;975d 975j 983kI think maybe the 983 line was one of the first Titleist offerings to use a different type of metal in the head but wouldn't swear to it. It has been so long it is hard to keep track. The 975 is a good club, but probably not as good or as easy to hit as a 983. You could probably get either real cheap. With a little patience, you could probably get both a 975 and 983 for under $100 combined so it is almost worth it to buy both and see which one you like best.
I have a 983E, agree with previous posters that it's not going anywhere. It's not my #1 driver, but it still gets played quite a bit. I've hit the different 975 versions, nice drivers, but I think the biggest jump in Titleist driver playability (is that a word?) occurred with the 983 series (since then they've all been relatively forgiving).
My 907 is a little longer on average, and a little more forgiving. But the 983 is just as long if not longer on a perfectly struck shot, and it has a lower trajectory.
