Tried at least 15 combinations of drivers....

By a landslide I hit the Callaway HyperX Tour 8.5 360 Fit on Stiff the best.... 300 straight 8/10 times. Was slicing/fading every other club I hit. I think it's the shaft.

The club head was extremely forgiving. Now I just need to find someone who has it in an 8.5.

Sounds great.....you've found a weapon for sure.

I hit one of those clubs today at Dick's Sporting Goods in their simulator. Very nice feel to it. Sounded and felt flush...even on swings that I know were not great.

Good luck in your hunt for the 8.5.

How does a demo day work? Do they have a bunch of clubs with different shaft/head combinations so you are able to grab one give it some whacks, put it back and grab another? In addition, is there a professional club fitter on site to analyze and give advice as to what club he thinks would work best.
If it isn’t too crowded it sounds like a lot of fun.

Yes there are reps from the manufacturer there. This particular demo day had Nike, Callaway, Cleveland, Taylor Made, Callaway, and Cobra there (yep it was sweet).

Every manufacturer had every club in every shaft. It was ridiculously cool. I probably hit 15-20 clubs, 200 balls, and had a lot of advice how to fix my slice.

But the HyperX 460 stole it for me.... followed by the Ping G10 and then the Burner Tour.

I recently purchased the hyper x driver and do like it, but i have a problem not turning my hands enough (i think) during my swing and this along with the 1* open face causes a bad slice for me, but my fault not the drivers and will be corrected as soon as i get round to a few lessons. But the driver is very good and i can feel it trying to straighten my shots when i hit it with the heel of the club. Want to get a ping g5 driver and 3 wood to see what they are like. Have a 5 wood and its class but would like to try out the other two and see how they play.

I hit the Hyper X 10 degree with a stock regular shaft on a monitor yesterday. Holy crap! That thing is amazing. The forgiveness is great, and I need that. It feels like it's in a slot coming through the down swing. Then there's the distance: anywhere from 15 to 30 yards longer than I can hit my current driver

I really want this club. Maybe Golfsmith has a slightly used one...

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
