Difficult steering, no racket/pinion

Don't want any options. I'll never want to change anything

Not interested in any technology that has been put in to improve fuel efficiency or handling.

I want to go from hack to scratch.

i dont see an issue with playing and being recommended older drivers? What is the point of your post?

I never said technology was bad or against it, just wanted to try out some older tech stuff and want some recommendations of people who have favorites.

Yeah, I was just messing' with ya. It's all good my friend. Not too old, but I can tell you I really liked the Ping G20 driver. I wore it out good. Probably would've kept it longer but I accidentally snapped it getting it into my silly car trunk which was too small.

I can completely understand the "small head" idea. A buddy of mine absolutely cannot stand the "grapefruit on a broomstick" look of today's Drivers! I've told him that there are mini-Drivers, but you can't find them in our local golf shops. I guess you have to go online. He'd prefer something just slightly larger than his 3 wood, which is what he tees off with now.

Until recently*, a 2004 Big Bertha Titanium was my baby for many, many years (10+). 360cc clubhead, great feel, easy to swing fast and hit far. It always seemed like the "harder" I swung, the more she rewarded me. I tried a couple larger drivers through the years, but always made my way back to Bertha. No half sizes, though, you'd have to settle for a 10o or 11o.

* Coincidentally, and oddly enough, I just gave her to my son about a month ago after receiving a TaylorMade AeroBurner for my b-day...and I'm never going back. :whistle:

Here's a couple from Callaway which you might like. Only drawback: both are 460 cc heads; otherwise they fit your critical items.

RazrX Black* (circa 2012) - 10.5*, composite head, D5 | Fuji Motore F8 stock shaft, 46" |
  Face angle -  8.5*, 9.5* = 1* open // 10.5* = square // 13.5* = closed.
 *non-adjustable brother of RazrFit ... early high launch, low spin offering.

HyperX Tour  (circa 2008) -10.5*, D5, square face // 68 gr. Fuji Fit-On 360 shaft as stock, 45.5" (Circa 2008).   Hot, mid-level trajectory; used it in R-flex for four seasons.

so many options! I might have to buy them all! I got a used club store locally and can pick up any one of these drivers for 10-30 bucks

You can have my old TaylorMade Burner Bubble driver. It's in very good condition, though it's a 9.5deg with a stiff shaft. You can have the matching 3 & 5 too.

TaylorMade Aeroburner Mini Driver has a small head and is readily available new. It's not expensive.

I actually liked the Taylormade 360 driver. I thought it was big at the time. 

I'm a little biased... But the original Exotics Tour Proto driver from Tour Edge fits your specs a bit. I'm not sure if it came in 10.5° but most early Exotics drivers came with lofts in 9°, 10.5°, and 12°. 

Also the Nike Ignite 380 was a good driver with the right shaft in it... I actually had one in my "mutt" set.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
