Hey everyone,

I am looking to piece together my own bag so I no longer have to share (my first word was "mine").

I have decided to get giga irons but now I need to decide on what driver I want.

I have been looking around for a driver for my bag.

A few that have caught my eye have been the old Nike Machspeed black and the Cobra s3 adjustable.

I know that I want a more modern own because I demoed an r11 on the course this weekend and holy crap!

When I hit it right on my drives flew 30-40 yards further than my budget driver that I am using now.

I really need a new driver!

I would prefer to get an adjustable one.

Are the r11's really so good that it would be worth saving a little more to get a used one of these instead of those aforementioned?

I am open to any suggestions, looking to spend around 150.

What would you guys recommend?

Thanks,

Sebastian

I like the Adams Speedline 9064LS. It's model year is 2010 and has some really strong reviews on the interwebs.

You can find one for 100 shipped on Ebay easily...

I checked it out on their website, it looks like its adjustable, is this true?

Yes there is a DFS (fitting system) version available, along with the Standard edition.

It's a very long driver, highly recommended.

If you like Callaway: http://www.callawaygolfpreowned.com/drivers-diablo-octane/drivers-diablo-octane,default,pd.html?cgid=diablo-family-drivers

They're running a 25% off all Diablo stuff.

It a nice sale.  Just picked up a fairway wood for $55.  Couldn't resist the deal.

You said "new" but im not sure if that means brand new or just new to you, if you dont mind pre-owned I would check out golfsmith, i got a Nike VR STR-8 FIT driver from there for $65 and it was literally almost brand new!

Craigslist allllll day. Most people are nice enough to meet up and just pick a range close to them and you will even be able to take a few practice swings and see how the club really feels/reacts.

Thanks for all the advice guys,

I am torn between the Nike Machspeed/VR, Cobra s3, and the Adams 9064LS.

I will only buy them if they are new or a minimum of excellent condition.

Also, I am choosing solely among adjustable drivers, is this a good idea?

Absolutely! some will say it's a crutch but they are uneducated.

An adjustable will allow the club to grow with you.
