My current driver, a Cobra L4V 9-degree, seems like it doesn't have enough loft for my swing. I have a relatively high swing speed (drives I hit well go 270-280), but my most solid drives don't seem to have enough hang-time to get all the yardage they should get.
I know getting a fitting is probably the answer I'll get from a lot of you, but I'm not entirely happy with that idea because I change my swing a lot; I'm a bit of a tinkerer. I'd like my driver to fit me better, but I don't want to pay to get it fit only to find out next season that I've improved my swing enough that I no longer have the right fit.
Are adjustable drivers the answer? I don't mind an expensive driver, provided it lasts me more than two or three seasons. I don't have much interest in changing the face angle; I don't see how closing the face to turn a slice into a pull (or opening to turn a hook into a push) would be a good thing; instead I like to tweak my mechanics until my swing path is right. But I do want the ability to change the loft to tweak my trajectory.
Are my reservations about a driver fitting vs. adjustable drivers unfounded?
Among adjustable drivers, any recommendations? I have a pretty conventional, fundamentally-solid swing for a high-handicapper (short game's horrendous), but forgiveness in the form of a large sweet spot is something I value. Any input is appreciated.
