I've been driver browsing for the last week or so and I'm seriously considering using a 13 degree Adams XTD as a driver and taking the "driver" completely out of the bag. For the last 5 years I've been playing a 9 degree Ping Rapture as my boomer. It's a wonderful driver when I hit it straight and absolutely brutal when I don't. On the screws I can put it out around 275 but in assessing my stats, I'm just not hitting enough fairways.
I hit the XTD again today and I'm carrying the thing 250 with an avg ball speed of around 160 mph. The ball just explodes off the face and just seems to hang forever. The best part is that the dispersion is far better than what I've seen with any driver I've tested.
My goal this season is to take the left side out of play. My league course is really tight and if I can hit 3 more fairways per round I'd gladly give up 20 yards in distance.
Anyone else contemplating something similar?
