What Driver Will I Be Purchasing?

Recommended Posts

With the 2020 season ending for most, it may be time for a driver change. My swing speed is in the low 90's and my hc is 14.2 . Right now I am playing a Callaway XR16, which is approaching 5 yo now, and I think the technology is such that I could benefit from an upgrade. My biggest consideration is dispersion, as distance is only good when the ball is playable, and much more playable in the fairway. My considerations include:

Mavik Max


Ping G410 Plus

Ping G425 Max 

I am curious to what others have to say about these drivers and whether you are considering a new driver purchase yourself.

I bought the b21 about a month ago and love it. At the store it gave me the best consistent spin numbers compared to the Sim and Mav maxs. Im a reformed slice which I cured 10 years ago. My big miss with my M 2 was a push to fade that would creep in once or twice a round. With the b21 lower spin my push shots wouldn't fade as bad or even become some really nice draw back to fairway shots. Which ever way you go with it really helps to get fitted so you get the right head shaft combo. I have the stock light 45 shaft that on the monitor and real life gave me a lot better dispersion and ball speed over the regular shafts.

Pretty much any driver made right now is going to be really good. The best thing you could do is go get fit, but if you don't want to or can't do that, I would at least go and try hitting them all on your own and seeing if any stand out above the rest.

    • 20 year break!  ... Let me guess, you got married? ...  You had kids? ... Or had a career change? ... Maybe did a little time in the pokey? 🤪 Anyway, welcome back to the game and welcome to the forum.  
    • Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!! Don't go away. Take a step back for a second. Listen, I know quite a few of the folks on this forum personally and they are all really good people, who love discussing golf. It seems you've become very upset because the title of your thread was changed. Think of it this way, when searching for this thread the rest of us need a way to recognize it. The moderator who changed it just tried to make it easier for the rest of us to find your thread.  Over the years I've had many thread titles changed. I've started other threads which have been merged with similar threads as well. This is a huge form. It's been around for 20 years. The moderators are just trying to keep thing tidy to help us all out.  Give us a chance. I think you'll find this really is a great place for golf talk. I'd suggest "The Numbers Thread", "The would you rather" thread, and the "General COVID-19" thread. Go in there and poke around. There's good stuff in there.  Remember a forum is a collection of personalities just like any forum that gets together in "real life". Some folks are better communicators than others. Some folks are wittier than others. (I'm looking at you @Double Mocha Man. I promise you if you hang around here you'll find stuff that will help your son's game. You'll find stuff that will challenge what you thought about some situations. You'll likely even make some friends. Besides if you go, who's going to teach me new words? I had to look up pedantic.... I had no idea what that meant. I was pretty sure it wasn't positive. But I went to Chicago Public Schools so my vocabulary isn't the strongest. 
    • I saw him hit his last home run in Milwaukee in 1976.  I had just graduated high school. A great talent.  RIP.
    • Sticking with the same stuff, left leg slider feel and maintaining the right ankle dorsiflexion. Hitting it well, taken a lot of the left miss out of play, misses recently have been pushes. Went to PING last week to get fit for the new woods, some changes from my last trip which I think is reflective of the swing trending in the right direction. Don't need to tweak the loft lower with the driver anymore and they recommend I hard-step my iron shafts. I like how stable the right foot is on the backswing and how the left foot is rolling to the outstep much less with the face-on.  
    • Day 18 - simple chips and pitches in the backyard along with full swings with the 5i and foam balls.  Focused on trail hand grip position.
