Haha, gross! I would hate that driver. If anything, I like a driver that doesn't want to go left so I can try to hit a nice draw without fearing the duck hook. To each his own...

If I were in the market for a new driver I would be looking at either a Ping G15 or i15.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

I've always been a big fan of Ping drivers and I used a TiSi Tec 8.5 for a number of years. I finally decided to get a new driver this year and looked at both the G15 and the Rapture. My brother suggested I demo the Callaway Diablo and although I was skeptical I tried it. The Diablo was the one I ended up buying. For me it had better feedback than the G15. Aesthetically, the shape of the Diablo is very disconcerting (reminds of the head of one of those aliens from the movie "Alien"), but I buy a golf club for what it can do for my game, not for what it looks like.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

After trying a number, I finally found one that I can hit with some consistancy. Callaway Big Bertha 2007 460. I aso use the 3w from the same line. Love em both.

LBlack14, that thing looks menacing. Coincidently, I watched Caddyshack 2 last Friday where Jackie Mason used his "12 guage" driver.


I need one of these......

Hit the diablo yesterday during a round. I really didn't like the way it looked, an alien head describes it well. The feel was awesome though.

I have been using TaylorMade drivers exclusively for the last 4-5 years, this year I went on a hunt for something else. I tried several drivers including the FT-iZ, Diablo Edge Tour, Ping G15 and I15, Cleveland DST and the Cobra ZL. For me, the ZL was the best fit, launch angle and direction were great, the sound is much better than in past years. I have never been a fan of Cobra drivers until now.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

I've kind of settled into the Adams 9015d as my favorite driver. I like the look at address and taller clubface. The muted sound and feel is awesome, I can feel the face rebound when I hit one well. The low spin, mid flight is the best I've found for my swing as well, when well hit this thing seems to give me a solid 10yds over other combos.

I have been playing a 9.5* with Harrison Saga 70s shaft, I just today received the 9.5* Axivcore Black 79s that I picked up on Ebay...can't wait to hit it.

I'll probably start fiddling around with my i15/Axivcore Red as well, I think if I cut .5"-.75" off the shaft it could rival the 9015.

I'm still hunting for a head with the same characteristics as the 9015/i15 that isn't open face or weighted for fade bias, my miss is left so I need a low spin/square setup.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

My first two drivers were the Nike Ignite and SQ I hit them far but not very straight. I then switched to a TaylorMade driver and between the two i really like how I hit the TaylorMade. I have been curious about the Titleist drivers. I was wondering if anyone has hit both the Titleist and Taylormade drivers and which did you pick and why thanks.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

To me the Titleist drivers are very traditional, nothing special. Its got the basic head shape and they have different shafts you can use. Some people really like them but to me they werent anything special like how much I like their irons.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

My Titleist 905R driver is the best and longest driver I have ever hit. I have always been a decent driver of the golf ball...but this one took me to a new level. I can shape it both ways or just hit it straight. Very long. Best thing is, found it in the used section at Golf Galaxy for $65. Looked like it had never been hit.

I've tried just about everything and this is what keeps the top spot.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

I still have my Yonex Super ADX Titanium driver from circa 1997. It is not as forgiving as my current driver, but when I am hitting dead center of the face, that thing is freaky long - longer than my 07 Burner. Yonex is the most underrated club company, IMHO. Big in Japan but not so much anymore here in the U.S. I'd consider their current offerings if I could find a place that sells them.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

loving my DYMO Str8-fit... getting plenty of distance on off center hits.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

Bought the dymo sq^2 this winter. Loved it for the first few months out. Now cant seem to hit it for anything. None the less by far the straightest driver ive hit in years

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

I have 4 drivers in the arsenal:

My current favorite, the Ping I15 11 degree in my sig line, which goes high with a draw and is very, very hard to hook.

Last year's model, the G10 9.5 degree with a Grafalloy stiff shift that works very well some days until an occasional hook appears.

A Titleist 983 (traditional head, squared club face) with aGrafalloy regular shaft which, if hit on the screws, goes 9 miles, but which might go left if given the chance.

An ancient Ping i3 steelhead, 13 degree with a JZ Extra Shift steel shaft that is the straightest one I own and which I can hit off the deck like a mad man.

Sometimes I carry the I15 and the i3 instead of my 3 wood just in case I feel like launching a second shot on a par 5.

Re: Driver? Your Favorite

I've had the Ping G10 for just over two years now and I can't get rid of it. I am afraid I won't hit my next driver as straight. It's been through a lot of rounds, and I could probably use a new driver but I just can't dish out 300 dollars on something that won't be an improvement.

So right now I'd have to say I'm certainly satisfied with my G10.
