I am between these 3 drivers right now, this weekend I am going to hit them all on the launch monitor and see what the numbers look like. What do you guys think between these 3? At address, I like the look of the Hyper X a lot...I was surprised. I was originally just interested in the TB and G10, but the Hyper is now in the mix. My SS is around 95 and I usually play a reg shaft. If anyone has experience with any or maybe ALL of the above drivers, let me know what you think!

Well, I haven't gotten any responses on here yet...but on some of the other sites people have been saying that the Hyper is longer than the Tour Burner. If that is the case, why hasn't the Hyper X gotten more attention? It seems like it has slipped by un-noticed.

I messed around with the Hyper X and the G10 a bit on the ranges before making my decision to go with the G10.

It has been a super club for me. I can't begin to stress the difference in how I drive now vs. prior. Wonderful improvement. More carry, straighter, greater overall distance, etc.

Much of this could also be attributed to the fact that I went from a 300cc head to my first 460cc head with this G10. Also the V2 HL shaft is perfect for me in the stiff flex.


This doesn't mean I didn't like the Hyper X.....it did well for me....but the V2shaft option sold me on the G10.

I really like the 4 & 7 woods as well. I'm happy with my current wood arsenal.

Good luck on your hunt. It sure felt nice getting a great driver / shaft for under $300 new. Some of the new Callaway and Taylor Made sticks are $150-$200 more....that's a couple of new wedges....ouch.

One aggravating thing about Callaway and Taylor Made is how they'll bring a new stick to the market....charge the premium price.....then discount it hugely in short order and then bring out the next "best" thing, again at a premium.

It could just be me but it seems that folks jump on board with these only to feel like they are playing "yesterday's sticks" less than a year later....again...just my feel on it. Over the years I've owned several Callaway & Taylor Made drivers, 3 woods, 5 woods and other. Probabably will at some point again, too. Don't know if I'll jump on the R9 train.....never know, though....it could be the best thing since the invention of the wheel.

Well bought the TB and returned it. Just didnt like it much. No exp w/ hyper X. Have hit the G10 but didnt like it cause it just didnt have that sweet fell at imact like my 909 D2. Id have to go w/ the G10 as the lesser of 3 evils. Hope this helps.

The TB has a longer shaft, so in theory it should be slightly longer, yet harder to control. I really like the TB. I believe the G10 is more forgiving though. Try the 09 burner if you wanted more forgiveness from TM.

I was in Vegas yesterday and had a chance to try the new Callaway Diablo. Hold off your purchase until you have a chance to try it. 10/10 straight up the middle and not having hit a ball in almost 2 months. I don't like any factory equipment but I am impressed with this.

I bought the Hyper X last year and have loved it ever since.
I also got to demo both the TB and the G10, and still like the X better.
The only thing to warn you is the fugikura fit-on shaft is built for a high launch, if you don't need that.

I play the G10 with a V2hl xstiff shaft. Best driver I have had. It's super long and really forgiving. I increased my driving distance by at least 15 yds and hit a lot more fairways. I recently switched from a taylormade r7 425 and the ping was considerable longer and straighter. I highly recommend the g10.

Does it all pretty much come down to the shafts though? I mean, I know there are people who like 1 of these 3 drivers more than the others...but they are all pretty good, right?

Interesting. Their Diablo hybrids were recieving high praise in recent golfing magazine club reviews.

I wonder when the release dates are???

    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
    • I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height. In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy. Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing. Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.
    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
    • Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.
    • My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃. Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.   Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.
