Yeah-not sure what you hope to accomplish or discover with this poll. My favorite driver is a Nike, but I also own 2 Titleist drivers. So I should I vote Nike? But wait, my Dad uses a Cleveland Hibore XL Tour that I absolutely crush the ball with. Should I vote Cleveland? Bottom line-I have no idea what is best for anyone other than myself.
All companies make good stuff. A good starting point is to get on a launch monitor and see what your launch angles and spin are, a good clubfitter will be able to narrow it down a bit for you. Since I recently purchased a Titleist 910 D2, that's what I would recommend trying. Taylormade makes very nice drivers, as does Bridgestone, Callaway, Mizuno, Nike, Adams, etc etc. Pick a driver that looks good at setup for you and take it from there. If you get fitted, make sure you try out a bunch of different clubheads and them search for a shaft to you're liking. "The Best Driver in Golf" is so vague, it is really what you feel looks best, feels best, and gives you optimum results. Good luck in your search!
I don't disagree with you at all, Taylormade makes solid stuff. However, I feel that this is where they get a hold of shoppers, they make you believe their stuff is the best because of their innovations in the clubs. Personally, I have never been a fan of all this adjustment. I got an R7 Quad when they first came out, and I spent more time dinking with those darn weights than I did trying to correct my swingpath. I really was disappointed when Titleist brought the adjustment into their line, however, I bought one and love keeping it on a draw bias.
We know that TM's marketing team is doing a great job i guess. with customer service aside, i think the brand is the least important thing on the club. i had a TM r580 XD which i hit well, but bought an Adams Speedline Fast 10 with a matrix shaft for a good deal and i hit it well so i am happy.
buying new clubs is all about performance and preference...2 things which are not the same thing from player to player.
