Depends on if the 10 yards puts you in the fairway or not.  If I'm 10 yards off line and this 10 yards can move me back to the right or left I'm all in!

 

Honestly though... I recently trimmed the length of my driver shaft from 46 to 44 and I might have actually given up 10 yards and I couldn't be happier.  Majority of my drives are now in the fairway.  :)

I'd give up buying a $500 driver for an extra 10 yards and put that money on better irons or wedges.

10 yards is about what companies tell us we'll gain every year with their model, so I'd say most of us are willing to pay $300-$500. :D

 

**Results may vary, yardage not guaranteed.

Had a discussion on this before. Look at the fine print the yardage claim is generally against a driver that is 3-5 years old.

Probably would pay $50 over trade in value for my current driver. Happy with my distance now. I'd much rather narrow iron dispersion or fix my short game.

 

 

Carolina Golfer....$70 could be a lot of things but I will go with cost of a lesson to improve your swing which would get you the 10 yards with current equipment.

This is exactly what I'm getting at. The marketing is usually about distance but it seems like most of the folks here claim to not be that interested in "10 more yards". Which is interesting given the marketing trends. That said, MGS forum goers really aren't a representative population of the average golfer - in my opinion anyways.

Ok. So since it sounds like ten yards is not in demand and I'll take it. If it's a guaranteed 10 more yards on every drive going forward, I'll pony up $70 for it.

 

Instead of saying why, I'll offer up a small prize for the first person that can tell me why I came up with $70. Go!!!

 

I don't want to hijack Samson's thread. So make sure you answer the original question as well.

You have a $70 gift card?  lol

 

I would not be willing to pay much for 10 more yards, 230 vs 220 is really not very much different.  I would still have to play the senior tees.

... I would buy a new driver for 10 more yards guaranteed for $499 in a heartbeat. At 64 I figure that is just about the yardage I have lost from my 40's when hitting it the longest. I can still reach some par 5's in two but that extra 10 yds would mean a lot to me as I am usually in the fairway. I think it would be worth about 1.5 - 2 strokes a round. PayPal OK?  ;)

10 yards means something but with adjustable drivers it's pretty easy to max a person out. I don't believe that there's 10 yards available through equipment at this point.

 

I recently laid out 100 for a driver fitting. I was swinging well that day and we tried several combos and found the most yardage by adjusting what I have currently up a notch. It was about a 4 yard gain in carry.

 

Since then I've hit a couple of career drives at my course but I've only been a member there for a couple of years and it's been a very dry spring. Still I've touched 250 at least once in 3 of my last 4 rounds. I also had a 75 from tees that have a course rating of 73 and slope of 138. So that's something. It's the equivalent of one under where I play for league.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

i mean if it was just as consistant and accurate as anything else, but went 10 yards further, i would spend maybe 50-100 more than the next driver. that being said i chopped an inch off my driver a couple months ago knowing i would lose 5-10 to hit more fairways. extra distance is nice though for sure all else being the same.
