i've been on a quest for some time to get a new driver because i want LOW SPIN. current is a nike sq dymo 2009. i hit it 265y Avg, 105 swing speed, 9.5 loft, 3800rpm spin Avg. i have hit this on a launch monitor and had some inconsistent results, but generally i see spin always at least over 3200 and closer to 3800. i have tried every single mainstream driver on the market and nearly all have had comparable spin numbers to the nike. there have only been a few exceptions, one being the ping anser.
i hit the 8.5 anser today (weird i hit it better than the 9.5). the anser has given me either spin of ~3k or ~4k, even though all shots on the monitor traveled 235-250 AIR, plus 5-20y of roll depending on the spin. none of them felt like mishits, but a 1000 average rpm difference with the same club seems steep.
am i mishitting the ball to get these inconsistent spin numbers or is this normal? i feel like i need more evidence to buy a new driver. if i grow into the anser and a 3000 rpm spin becomes the norm, it's worth buying; if i'm still hitting it nearly 4k, i should stick with my nike since they both seem to travel similar distances.
FYI i play in windy conditions usually because of where i live. high spin + wind = ballooning, which is my main reason for wanting a new driver. 265y usually gets the job done otherwise.
