I'm having a bit of trouble deciding on a used or closeout driver. I used to play a lot of golf and was about a 10-12 handicap. I would normally shoot in the 80s with one round in the 70s. I just picked the game back up after a 6 year hiatus and the few rounds I've played this summer were somewhere between 90-94. Currently I have a Titliest 905S 8.5 degrees that I hit pretty well. My buddy who is a former PGA teaching professional at a well respected private club convinced me that I would benefit from a new driver, even if it were used or a few years old. I went to a swing monitor and found my club head speed on my driver was averaging about 98 mph.
What are some good drivers that are 3-4 years old? Should I get a stiff shaft? I found a used Calloway FT 9 tour neutral that looks practically new for very cheap with a Fuji Z Com Stiff shaft. Would this be a decent driver for me? I hit a few TM Rocketballz Tours, R11, and Calloway Razr and they felt much better than my current driver. Would the FT 9 Tour be a good upgrade? I can't afford anything I can afford that has come out in the last year or two, even used.
Anyone play a FT 9 these days? I don't know if it's for low, mid or high handicappers. Thanks in advance.
