Just for fun and curiosity, I thought a poll on what drivers are used by the fellow sand trappers would be nice and it would be interesting to see a percentage.  I'm sure something like this has been done before but I couldn't find it. Please vote!

I use a 2006 Cleveland Hi-Bore.  I picked it up used, in near mint condition, about six years ago.  It set me back 20-30 bucks.

My driver, and fairway metals are all components, fitted, and tweaked to my swing. I voted "other".

I do own a a couple of Tour Edge drivers, but very rarely ever use them. When I do, it's usually for practice purposes. 

I found out a long time ago that component metal woods were just as good as the big name brands. Price wise I could have a driver, and 3 metal woods built to my specs for just a little more than a big name driver, saving me hundreds of dollars.

I like my Callaway RazrFit.  I demoed the Ping G400max briefly while they were writing up paperwork on my new Ping irons a few months ago (so not a real fitting), and results were similar.

Ping G20. I always hit the new clubs, but there isn't enough difference to justify spending the money.

Yeah the improvement is slim to none but I still want new ones...

Curious...do you feel the same about shafts? I’m wondering if everybody who gets juiced to buy the newest driver would instead see how a $300 shaft would feel compared to shelling out $500 for a new driver.

Not sure about that. It’s possible that a newer driver head could be more forgiving in a way that helps my shots?

Just got fitted into a Ping G400 LST 8.5º last week.  Wow.  Never would've thought I'd be put on an 8.5º head, but it was a heck of a fitting.  Surprisingly, going down a shaft flex (I think to a regular) was a key piece, too.  My SS is right around 100mph, yet, on the scope I was carrying 260-264 and rolling out to 275-278 consistently (my old R7 was 245-250 carry with short rollouts).

It has carried to the course...overall, a huge upgrade from my R7 Quad.  In addition to the distance gains, the forgiveness has been fantastic--making me rip at them even more, and getting some really long drives.

I would say the gain was from ~14 years of tech, but I saw only minimal gains with the M4 and Rogue SZ.  I have to give huge props to the fitter...guy swapped me through about 10-12 head/shaft combos, then got me into something that's giving me shots I didn't think I was capable of.

    • 99% of the time when I'm playing my home club, I'm walking and carrying, so don't drink alcohol (too bothersome to walk with it).  But when I'm on vacation or on a golf trip/round with buds, we're almost always on carts, and I'll get a beer or two throughout the round at least half the time.  I don't order cocktails on the course, though...like to keep it light. I've never noticed it affecting me negatively, but I'm convinced it helps me from time to time.  When I'm not playing my best, it's usually my flaw of getting a little fast with my hands and out of tempo.  A beer or two seems to help slow me down.  In FL a few years ago, I was playing at a resort with my son and just kinda grinding through the round, but not scoring.  At the turn I got a couple of fairly light local summer brews to take along, then birdied 10, 11, and 13 (nearly an ace!).  Playing on HHI a couple of weeks ago I was in the same scenario--hitting it pretty decent but just grinding and not making birdies.  Tried the beer method.  Sadly, this time--no difference at all.    One thing I NEVER do anymore is drink caffeine before a round (no coffee if my round is morning or early afternoon, or just my morning coffee and nothing else if my round is late afternoon).  I can absolutely see its impact on my game--really struggling with rushing the hands and keeping a smooth tempo...full swing, putting, everything.  Heck, on caffeine, I notice I talk faster than normal (saying a lot), and am a little jumpy.  So if I'm gonna do drugs (the legal ones) before golf, it's gonna be the one that slows me down.  
    • Day 108 (7/23/21) - Aggravated my Tennis elbow yesterday to will be taking it easy for the next few days. Since my low point control has been poor lately, I worked on set up positions with my 7-wood and 7-iron, taking short swings focused on getting my low point in front of the ball.
