I've been playing golf for nearly a year now and have been using a regular flex Callaway Diablo 10 degree driver that I grabbed out of the $99 bucket at a local golf shop. It did well but now that my swing speed is at a 100 now and the regular flex was just super whippy, which meant some short, some long bombs and that they were genreally all over the place.
I tested the Superfast 2.0, R11 and the Diablo Octane all with Stiff shafts. My control club had a mean total distance of 245.4 w/ the best being 256 w/ a clustering diameter of 63 yards. Those numbers were right in line with what I see on the course.
Diablo octane 9.5 - hated it. never got situated right, club head spread was lower, shot dispersion was all over the place. I jsut did not like it at all.
R11 9 - liked it better mean total yardage jumped to 263 w/ the best being 268 with a shot cluster of 40 yards. better but still felt like I would need to tinker to get it right.
Then the clear winner was the Superfast 2.0 9* w/ Fujikura Blur which I believe is the stock shaft. Right away I was comfortable at set up and I jsut wanted to get after the ball and I had the confidence to do it. Mean total distance was 273 w/ the best coming in at 277 and the best part shot dispersion cluster of 15.4 yards.
I can really use a 275 drive right down the middle in my game.
He pushed to get a 4W and 3 hybrid to round it out. I've been wanting a 3 hybrid for a while. I have been playing with 4i and then go to a 5W and 3W which I am not confident with. Some days I crush it and others I slice really bad.
I didnt order the FW but I hit the new Rescue 11 and new I needed it in my bag.
I'll get around to the FW down the road a little bit.
All in all it was a good experience. I didn't feel like I was getting bullshitted. The driver felt great right away. He did measure my hands and is having hte grips built up a little. I hope thats not weird to get used to. oh also the fitting was free and he beat the local guys price by a few dollars.
