And they're being sold for US$150 online due to Nike's recent departure from golf club manufacturing. 

 

I'd also suggest the Titliest 915D which will be discounted soon due to it's replacement (917 - imaginative name I know) coming out soon.

I used to game a Callaway X HOT Pro. It was an absolute weapon, used to average about 290yd off the tee with low spin. Any of the XR/X2 pro range would produce similar numbers so worth a look.

 

The XR16 Pro and X Hot Pro both have 440cc heads, so if you're looking for a smaller head give them a try.

The 917 is already out. I finally replaced my gamer after 51 tries this year. TaylorMade M1 430 was the one to finally dethrone the champ.

I feel your pain! I'm going to be trying out the Nike Vapor Fly Pro in stiff/tour stiff shafts - tried it with a regular shaft (my swing speed is 108-111mph) and it was a rocket launcher!

start with the list as mentioned by PlaidJacket. You can also get brand new Cobra F6+ with upgraded shaft for ~$200 these days as well. 

I have a 20% off bombtech driver code if you wanna "pull the pin"

Dont waste your money on the bombtech unles you want the all chinese product Sully claims is made in america... no wait, assembled in america... no, not that either. He finally come clean theyre not made or assembled here any more. The shaft ... let's not even start on that.... Its awful on offcenter hits as well. And if you buy it head onky (which they sell), but theres no warranty. They only honor full club purchases. The shaft is a noodle.It also spins like a top...

I purchased the 4 hybrid from Bombtech ($69 less 15%)......got to use it today and hit it 4 times.....all four hits were straight, with a nice launch and felt good when struck. Not sure where they are made or assembled but I will take it with me to Hilton Head for additional trials.

I've been somewhat interested in bomb tech but same time I'm a bit skeptical. I believe that when they first came out they built a good product but now that they have dabbled into other clubs the quality has dipped. The 72 wedge is a gimmick which I believe has transpired into the driver as well unfortunately

They say a lot of stuff that's untrue. I'll leave it at that. The original selling point was made in the USA. Then it became assembled in the USA. Then none of that. Their warranty program is a joke how they handle it. You can buy the head only but as soon as you or any builder, certified or not, installs a shaft in it, the warranty is gone because they "don't know the quality of the build". When pressed I asked what certifications Silly has and he has none. So his work is fine as a non-certified builder but if someone certified builds it it's not... Ooooookay.

 

Next point, Silly says the shaft does not matter (right about the time they got blew up for not using Matrix shafts when they said they were). He says that their wet noodle will work as well as a properly fitted shaft for anyone.... Ooooookay.

 

He loves berating people questioning the product. He also enjoys trying to be abrasive when, in his position, he should say nothing. The 50-100 yard gains his sheeple, I mean customers, claim he backs up or says stuff like it's easily possible.... No, it's not. When the swing speed is 97 and folks are claiming 320+... Yeah... He can barely crack 3 bills. And he used to do LD... Allegedly.

 

The last thing? He said Rick Shiels is unqualified to review his driver and that it wasn't a fair review when he put it head to head. Then he talked crap about Rick and finished up by saying "we should've sent him ladies flex". First of all, you refused to send him anything. He got one and reviewed it. It reviewed well on center face contact. His only complaint, and one any golfer worth a damned has also said is it's not very good on off center strikes. The average golf company takes that constructive criticism and improves their product or knows what to improve. Silly instead chooses to blast the reviewer, one of the most qualified and best out there.

 

That company is a joke. Warrior Golf 2.0

As good as it gets with a properly fitted, premium shaft!  (I put a Miyazaki Kusala Black 61s shaft in mine).

 

Long, straight, forgiving, good-looking and solid feeling!   I find it to be the a perfect 'blend' of ALL those performance attributes!  No need to 'loft up' with this one either, I suggest you go with the 9.5* loft.  Last, but not least, I think you'll even like the price!.. :rolleyes:

 

Think of it as the 'M2' of the SLDR Family!  You could spend a lot more but would likely get less in solid all-around performance!
