Dead face on a driver??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I bought a 9.5 razr fit from ebay and it just doesn't perform. I had a 10.5 that I was fitted for and bought new but I  cracked it with one too many crown hits, so I replaced it with a used 11.5. The 10.5 is hands down the longer club for my swing but the 11.5 is close, similar feel and with in 10 yards or so of my 10.5 razr. So, clubs being relatively cheap on ebay I thought I'd try a 9.5. The thing seams dead, I lose 20 yards. I can hit beautiful high trajectory shots that just go nowhere. 9.5 or adjusted to 10.5, makes no difference. dead club, feels dead too, you can just tell that the ball is slow off the face.

 

Beware ebay clubs. Lesson learned.

It could be the difference in the shaft.

 

Without that info, it's hard to say.

Yeah, could be the wrong shaft for you or possibly a counterfeit club.

In 2009 I started playing the Callaway HyperX Tour driver with an R-flex shaft. Soon afterward, I got a chance to hit the Diablo Octane driver, which was supposed to be the Next Big Thing.

 

I tried hitting Octanes two different times, but it always felt like hitting a plastic wiffle ball bat. Yet, other people loved it. Maybe Razr just doesn't Fit you.

 

You didn't mention what shaft it has. If it has low torque, it might not feel too lively for you. Or,   b1_ohmy.gif, it might be a fake?

I have a  Fuji EXS 6.1 that I can interchange between the heads and I've tried every combination. Maybe a counter fit. but a good one, I can't find any difference.

I know what you mean, Everybody likes the Xhot driver. I can't hit that thing at all. Like my razr, seams to be a good club for me. I demo stuff all the time and I like what I have, just wish I had not cracked my 10.5.

Could be a fake or it could have a crack thats so small you cant see it.

Have you tried contacting the seller of the club on eBay or even check with callaway and the serial number?
