Best Value on a new driver?

5 posts in this topic

Just looking for some thoughts on what everyone thinks the best VALUE on a 2-3 year old driver would be?  I was think the Callaway FT-3 Tour driver or the Bridgestone J33R?  Anyone others out there??  Thanks!

Check out the Cobra stuff. Their S2 driver is a monster, and can be had very cheap with a great stock shaft.

I still love my TM R7 TP from 2006.  Nothing wrong with 'old' gear.

Im quite happy with my Nickent 4DX Driver. Its from 08 and while it doesn't have all the hype of taylormades or callaways in my hunt for a driver I swung the Callway FT i driver as well as the Callway FT-iQ driver and then finally the Ping G10. I ended up going with the 4DX mostly because of price but now that I have it, while it is not as long as the FT-i or as strait as the FT-iQ it is a nice balance. It is easy to control, has a large sweet spot has good distance and good forgiveness but it not very much swayed into either category and feels very similar to me to the G10 Driver from ping. The 4DX got very good reviews and when it was new saw quite a bit of use on the Nationwide tour. The huge difference for me between the G10 and the 4DX.. price. A brand spanking new 4dx is about $50-$70 a used G10 even in the worst of playable Condition is at least $100 and more likely closer to $130 or $140.

Thanks for the reply's, I had a R5 TP a while back and wish I would have kept it.  I will have to take a look at the S2's and the 4DX.  T

Adams 9015D, still in my bag but the Bridgestone J33R is not a bad choice.

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
