Hello all!

Would like to pick your brains on a new driver..The Cleveland in currently using is about to retired!

Im looking at the following Nak,Titleist,Mizuno and maybe SNT. What are your recomendations. I am also putting in a Fuji ZCOM. As I swing alot from the top of the swing and this shaft gives me alot of confidence. Current swing speed 110mph.

Cheers.

My rec is the Nakashima! Ever hit one? It reeks of feel and as for looks....phew! Mate it with the right shaft and its lights out!

i like the talyormade 580xd. large face allows for easy contact and boy do the balls sail off of these. The r7 is great too but for 500 bucks not worth the difference of the 580xd for around 250 bucks

Well, according to my thread on shafts, I just ordered a Titleist 983K. With the new 905 being eventually available you get the 983K at a very good price and it's still a pretty nice driver, IMHO.

Anyone had any long-term experience with a new Titleist 905s or T ?

400cc isnt it ? How big is the 983k cc wise ?


Also is the 905 noise at impact really that dull ? .......my 983 is conforming (.830 COR),and thats pretty dull sounding.I cant believe the 905 can be much "worse".Mine sounds like a persimmon at times.


Anyone remember those.........or brave enough to admit it

I belive the 983 is 365cc's. The 905 does have a different ping to it than the 983. I play a 983 as do about 20 of my friends. I know when any of them has hit it on the sweet spot cause I know the sound.

My friend who is a BIG hitter just bought a 905t. He's still getting used to it I'm sure, but he's nowhere near as accurate with this club yet.

I dont find my 983k the longest driver ive ever used distance-wise by any means (it aint the shortest either),but as i barely possess a dead straight shot in my bag,i do find it incredibly easy to shape as required,and hit it as straight (relatively) as anything in my bag.Its gotta be a damn tight hole before i get searching in my bag for a 3 wood etc......

IF the 905 is more difficult to control/shape at the expense of a few extra yards its an offer i'll definately pass on.

Thanks for the info.Keep me posted

Try Krank Golf's RHCP 460cc driver. I tried it out last weekend
at a charity tournament and it out performed my G2 in both distance
and accuracy. Incredible!!!

I've hit the following and liked them but haven't purchased them
Mizuno 460
Cleveland Comp
Titleist 905's
TaylorMade 510 TP

I own 3 and will use them depending on my mood
TaylorMade R7
Ping G2
Callaway Prototype - not allowed to discuss more until they release it :(

Definately spend some time on a launch monitor to see which combination of head and shaft work. And do it over several visits because you're swing will vary from day to day (hopefully not though)
