What Driver Will I Be Purchasing?

I’ve advised my golfing mates to change the heads because they like their shafts but want a little more pop, well worked for me...

Well, if their shaft is correct, then change your head.  What I am saying is if neither is correct and you need to change only one, the shaft is more important.

Yeah I have that. I’ve been really satisfied with it. But I’m not a bomber at all. I average about 230-40 carry.

I haven't hit the new Ping or Callaway drivers, but it's hard to see them as being much better than the Max, at least for me. The Max is very solid and forgiving. My distance is similar to yours.

I hit the G425 a few times. It felt nice but nothing noticeably different than my Mavrik driver.

Ok, if neither is any good then I would try another shaft or new driver...

Vitamin M would determine this.  If it isn't a problem, the new driver.  But understand the shaft is 75 percent, maybe more, of what you need to get correct.  Obviously a very bad head (say wrong loft fir example) needs to be changed

I'm thinking about changing the head because it's more than 10 years old, particularly if you like the shaft your using just want a little more pop...

You should get fitted, only way to go if you want to benefit the latest tech. You just got to make sure the clubs suit your profile. 

I still use my Titleist 917 woods I tried a fitting but well I don't get much better results, I mean I can go up by 4 yards that's about it.

not worth the change I think.

When i picked up my new irons from the shop the owner said he got some new drivers for me to test. So i went for a new fitting. I was suprised  about a driver i didn’t even expect but it is an amazing one. One we all should have a go with. It is the cobra radspeed, as i am seeking more forgiveness in a driver i ended up with the XB version. I got to say i love that one i still hit it about 15 yards further with a decent spin ( about 2800 rpm ) and my dispersion is way better.

    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.  
    • Welcome to the club    I recognize that I'm an objectively bad putter, too, and while I'm trying to fix that, it really shows is the discrepancy of my GIR vs birdies made stat. Then again, I think someone (I am going from memory here) had some data that among better amateurs (I am not in the category of "better amateurs" by any stretch), there was an inverse correlation between birdies made and score.  I would take comfort in that if I didn't have a 9 GIR / 0 birdies / scored 90 round in recent memory.
