I like the Cleveland HiBore that came out Saturday.

I hit Ben Hogan.

Callaway Fusion.

To be Vijay you need to spend all available time at the range hitting 14,231 balls per day (except on tournement days where you will only hit about 1500). Wry sense of humor, and an occasionally pissy attitude and you can be #2 in the world.

titleist 975D

If you know what you're doing, this is the club for you.

If you can't square your clubface, this club is your worst nightmare. It will magnify errors

Golf club exchange. Taylor Made R7 TP Fugi. shaft. <--- get the TP. $800 new, GCE $300 or less. Unless you just want to hit it short and all over the course.

Ping G5 in my bag...

Taylormade R7 Quad. 9.5 degree with Graffaloy blue stiff.
If Im on my game I can mash the ball.
Although I average around 300yards

I did hit the new R7 425 though a couple weeks ago, Stock stiff shaft and I conected with it from an elevated tee, I hit it 390yards.
The local driving range has a demo day coming up on April 22, Im gonna take a long look at the new R7460. That should make me more accurate

I have last years model King Cobra SZ 400. 9.0 I love the thing. I'm playing in a tourney on saturday with my boss and he just got a Nike Sasquatch. That thing is ginormus!

If anybody needs any clubs, let me know. I run a golf shop down here in Fort Myers. I'll get you the best deals out there. Especially since you're all AR15.com members.

Taylor Made R7 baby! Best driver I've ever owned. The only driver I have ever been able to "aim" down the fairway.

I play a Cobra SS that's 3 years old now. The new Cobra speed series drivers look like a good setup.

I have a Cleveland Launcher 460 that is the most forgiving driver I have ever hit.
Link Posted: 3/30/2006 6:16:12 PM EST
I just tested all the drivers you guys mentioned.

THe r7 was nice. I almost bought it.

Then I tried a new one: Cleveland Hi bore.

It's weird looking, but holy hell, I was crushing it. Every drive was straight and far. I tried to hit bad shots and just got some good fades and draws. It was awesome.

I bought it.

Big Bertha Steelhead.

His name is Mustafa, but it's hard to stuff him in the bag.

Taylor Made R360d

I was playing a Taylormade R540xd 9.5 degree w/Aldila NVS X-stiff shaft. I just bought a Taylormade R5 neutral w/Graphite Designs YS-6+ stiff shaft.

I have my dad's and granddad's old clubs. They were new back in the 1950s. I'm not good enough at golf so that club style would make any difference.

As long as it fits you and is of even reasonable quality, you are the problem not the driver.

I average 290 yards with a $90 Pal Joey 390cc head....and I seldom miss a fairway. It's in your head.....repeat until you believe it. 95% of golf is in your head, providing your clubs fit.

A properly fitted $40 club will be more beneficial than a $650 Ping that doesn't swing well in your hands.

Drivers? I have a Callaway and a Taylor Made but until lately I was hitting it best with the Warrior Custom I got last summer. I thought it would suck but the thing is magic.

Of course, since I blew my ACL out last month, my summer golf is probably screwed so it doesn't matter what clubs I have sitting in the garage. I was planning on breaking in a new forged set of irons I got that are still new in the wrapper, but I should probably think about selling them with all the medical bills that are going to pile up.

King Cobra - good driver

And some Titleist R580 driver? That sucks donkey balls.

Ping G2, 10 degree.

Because I need all the help I can get.
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 6:32:35 PM EST
I've been driving the ball about 425 or so. What driver can I get to reign in some of those really long, like over the green, tee shots?
