Which new drivers have the thinner face like the old TM Burner 580? Any clear cut choices out there?

I've had two drivers since passing forward my old Burner 580.  Currently have a TM RBZ Stage II 10.5 adjustable driver.  It doesn't go nearly as far as the old Burner did.

Had a discussion with an acquaintance who does club repair, buy/sell, regripping, builds, etc.  He was explaining to me the thinner face and 'trampoline effect' the older Burner drivers employed.  He said that's probably why I drove the ball farther with the old Burner compared to my last 2 drivers.

Question is then, are there current, new drivers out there with really thin faces to help launch the ball higher and farther than what I'm playing with today?  If so, what should I be looking at?  Honestly, I always thought my R7 and the RBZ were kind of 'clunky' feeling when I hit them.

Thanks if you can respond with general info and or experience.

All drivers the past few years are at the limit when it comes to face thickness or "trampoline effect".

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
