Titleist 907D2

15 posts in this topic

Anyone have any experience with this driver, or a thorough review? Looks really nice at adress, and they are cheap as all get out on eBay. I don't ever recall hitting one, but have heard from people that still think this is Titleist's best driver ever produced.....?

I think I would want a 9.5 stiff.
Thanks for all replies.

It's a really good driver, a couple of my lowest rounds were with the 907D2. For my swing it was a little bit high-spin, but a $15 Prolite 35 Xstiff fixed that problem. I'd still have it but I stumbled on a 907D1 w/ a genuine Blueboard, and I gave the D2 to my brother.

Search for it on the main site, I'm sure there was one a few years ago.

I have actually heard the opposite.... that the 907D2 wasn't a highly recieved driver. I have heard the "best driver" comment made about the 909 though. I played a 10.5 905R and then went to a 9.5 907D2. I really dig the 907D2 and haven't had a reason to seriously consider buying a new driver.

i have heard the same..the D2 series was not Titleist's best product

to date the 905 series has been the best, up till the 910....right from a Titleist rep 909 series is really good, but i guess the 905 was the shiz.... i have owned the 905T and 907D2 and now the 909D3 (havent hit the D3 yet tho) i will tell you this.......IF you are getting the 907D2 you MUST try it with a Graphite Designs Aura RED Shaft i hit this combo the year before last most of the year....and it is a great combo most didnt like the 907 series, but i really did there was a tour only D4 that was released that i really wanted...but it was like $400 plus w a premium shaft so long story short, yes i liked the 907D2 (it has more spin than the 905 series) but w a low spin shaft, its a good driver i have tried a brands of drivers and i have convinced myself that Titleist makes the best drivers on the market...hands down

I had one and didn't like it, but I think the V2 shaft was too much for me.
I am pretty sure that Iacas likes his.
But generally speaking, they were not a big hit on theTour, and guys went back to their 905 drivers almost immediately.
Having said that, if you find the right head/shaft combination, it could work well for you.

Back to your original question, though, the 907D2 would probably (almost certainly) be the least successful of any Titleist driver, certainly in the last decade or so.
Are you sure you aren't confusing it with a 983k or 905R or T?
The 909 drivers are very good and the 910 will probably be extremely successful. Good looks and adjustability.

Yes you must be correct, I think I was mixing the 907 for the 905. Anyways, I hit the 907D2 with a Diamana Blueboard today, and it was really nice, and I was hitting it 10 yards farther than my FT-9, i think due to the reg vs. stiff shaft. I really liked it, and it was only $87, and it had some mild chatter, but nothing affecting the performance. I also hit the 910 today, and that thing was just amazing. It was a 9.5 D3 with the RIP stiff, but it wasn't any longer than the 907 that I compared it to. I personally, enjoyed the 907, and for $87, why not right?

I had one (907D2) as my first driver (bought it second hand). While the results were ok (bit too much spin though), the shape and the sound were annoying me to no end. It was Titleist first attempt at a 460cc driver (afaik) and the triangular shaped head looks just huge at address. It sounded kinda tinny to my ears and I resold it a few weeks later.
From the 907 series, my vote goes for the D1. Otherwise, as the other guys said, the 905 series is awesome and the 909 was a big success.

i think your confusing the D1 and D2

the 2 was a more traditional pear shape and the D1 was the triangle

I played the 905R for over a year and loved it. It was stolen (along with the rest of my bag) so I decided to upgrade to the 907D2. I tried to give this driver a fair chance but I was never happy with it. I played the stock shaft for a month, produced too much spin, so I put a custom shaft in. Same result. I talked to a few reps and the consensus was that Titleist missed the mark with the 907 series. After Titleist came out with the 909 series, I switched to the 909DComp and immediately saw an improvement off the tee. Better sound, trajectory, feel, spin rate, etc. I recently hit the 910D2 and enjoyed it but didn't get to spend enough time with it to recommend for a purchase. However, if I were in your shoes looking for a driver, (if used) I would definitely try the 905 or 909 series over the 907.

Oh, that's right! sorry about that and thanks for the correction

Either way, that says a lot about the impression that driver left me ! (The 907D1, that is. The big triangular one)

Again, just being devil's advocate here-I played the 907D2 for about a year, and I've currently got the 907D1 in the bag. I think the key for D2 is a shaft change if you put a lot of spin on the ball. Something tip stiff/low launching. The D1 just flat out works for me, and a small tungsten weight on the back removes any of the hollow, tinny sound. My friend has one with a Xstiff Proforce V2 and it's the most accurate driver I've ever used.

I have been playing the 907D2 for 2 years now and am happy with the driver, mostly however because I really like the shaft that I have in it. If there are any negatives on the 907, it will certainly have to be the high spin numbers with higer swing speeds. You can tame this with the shaft but it still isn't optimal. That said, I play it because it's comfortable and didn't feel the need to dish out money for a new driver over the last two years. For the price point that you are looking for on eBay, you can't lose.

That said, I demoed the new 910 yesterday and placed my order in today. The spin numbers I had with the D3 version of the 910 were amazing and matched my higher swing speed. Not only was the carry 5 yards more than of 907, the estimated roll was 10-15 yards more; plus, the ability the adjust loft is a great move for titleist.

A buddy of mine has played the pga and nationwide tours for along time and has been sponsored by titleist for many years and his opinion of that driver was the worst driver titleist has ever made!

    • It's now 8 months since I started playing golf.  I'm fairly happy with the progress I've made so far... ...I've (mostly) got past the impulse to try and whack the ball really hard ...I've (mostly) learned not to overswing and start standing up in the backswing ...I get the concept of the hips starting the downswing rather than the arms, and can see how this causes the club head to rocket through at the bottom of the swing AND I seem to end in a good finish position ...that said, I have also learnt to move my hips at a moderate pace rather than too fast, as that was making me slice it - confused me for a bit but I get it now ...fat shots are now a rarity rather than a constant plague - tend to now only occur on uneven lies but not too often ...I'm not yet as consistent as I would like to be, but I hit the ball cleanish and straight most of the time ...chipping and putting is reasonable compared with my playing partners ...I would expect to get 4 or 5 pars in a round, mentally before each hole my target is a bogey, but a double bogey or worse is a disappointment I am also starting to get a reasonably good idea of my distances for each club.  What I have noticed, however, is that my distances are much shorter than my friends.  I can hit straight drives about 210 yards, a straight 4 iron about 150 yards, a 7 iron about 120 yards.  Now, I'm ok with this, I'm not bothered about outdriving them or being a big hitter - I know that trying to match them club for club will not end well for me. My question is, will my distances increase as my swing develops and gets more consistent?  Looking at some of the swing speed charts online - for what they're worth - maybe my driver swing speed is around 80mph for those distances?  My irons are Callaway X-16 with new Dynamic Gold R300 shafts.  Are these a heavier shaft, and would I see an improvement with different shafts?  I've no intention of changing them just now, but have my 40th birthday next year so a new set might be in the cards then. Im really enjoying my golf at the moment, and am quite content with my progress, but the desire to improve is very strong - I guess this happens to a lot of new golfers.  How might I expect things to go from here on?  I've been working it out by myself and with the help of YouTube videos and books, and lessons are not an option - the nearest pro is two hours away. Cheers, Joe
    • Umm, the penalty he took is directly related to that. It would be strange not to emphasize the reason why he took the penalty. 
    • Does anyone have a picture of the pin chart for this course? It's usually on the back of the carts but I can't find it online.  Thanks. 
    • If the fitter did not give you an idea of what shaft you need, you did not get full service.
    • Played in our B-Team interclub March at Heritage Hunt G&CC, 6500/132 Par 72 shot best round of year. 36-35-71 (1 under)) 3 birdies and 2 bogeys, with one bogey was hitting into hazard on Par 5 and the other was a bogey on another Par 5 where I short sided myself .  Even with that we only won 2 up.  But not bad for first time seeing the course.
