I think Cnosil may have been playing the 765 driver on Saturday, I kept meaning to ask him, he had a 355 head cover but he could have just been going low profile, but I swear i saw the bottom of a 765, but then again my eyes are getting old and bad. Whichever one it was, he was pounding it. Long and straight!!

Nope. I play the game improvement 355. I tried both the 5 and 7 when I participated in the most wanted. Been to long to give a side by side comparison I liked the 565 better but the shafts weren't really my favorite and I had low launch angle with them. Both solid drivers would just need to be properly fit.

LOL...Now I see it in the signatre..ha   Yeah, I meant to actually ask you about it, but forgot.  I can't believe how horrible I am for such a club geek, of forgetting to check out what the exact bag of the other players are..Especially the ones in the same cart.   I did notice the X Hot Pro irons though and the RTX wedge.

So just wanted to come in and update this thread now that my year is pretty much winding down.

 

I didn't get to play as much as I wanted to this year but played enough to give the Z565 a full run for it's money.  I feel like the Z565 does nothing amazing, but is just an amazing driver.  Admittedly, this was the first year of me playing a shorter driver (44") and in the past usually stayed around 45" or 44.5".  

 

Distance - I would say this was my best year ever distance wise (I'm talking 10-15 yards on average).  I think there were a few variables that helped, more center strikes, shorter club is easier for me to swing harder, and...

 

Spin - I attribute this as the main factor of my distance gain.  I swing in the 110 range, but often spin the heck out of a golf ball with the driver (talking 4k-5k).  I think between working on a swing flaw and the shorter shaft, I was delivering the head in a much better position.  Also, I think this head while not super low spin, has some very nice low spin characteristics

 

Forgiveness - I'd say Ping G/G LS Tec and M2 type forgiveness.  Just a great head top to bottom and heel to toe

 

Launch - I'd call it mid flightish, not high and not low.

 

Accuracy - I hit a ton of fairways this year and very rarely if ever lost a ball OB.  Probably my best accuracy year as well in a very long time.  Again, is it the head or the 44" playing length, IDK, but I loved it.

 

Overall, I think in a few years this will kind of be a mythical beast.  Not many people played it, those who did gave it great reviews, and in 2-4 years someone will find one and this will become a cult classic.  Who knows though!!

So I haven't had a chance to play since my last post, but I have to keep coming back to read my own review to scratch the itch that is winter+new clubs being released. If I do buy a new driver, I'll definitely try and come back and do a head to head review. The F8 line has piqued my interest

I'm a bit of a Cobra ho when it comes to clubs admittedly and just got a smoking deal on a F8+ with HZRDUS Yellow.  My buddy as an M3 and G400 Max.  Gonna take those three, my Z565, and my other buddy's M1 '17 onto his launch monitor in a couple weeks.  May do our own Most Wanted Driver article

So I'm late to the game in posting this, but I bought one of these not too long after it was named the "Most Wanted" last year.  Bought it online, with no prior testing, strictly on the basis of its Most Wanted win, and the fact that I'd owned Cleveland drivers in the past, with Miyazaki shafts, and had good luck with them.   I got a 10.5 and stock R-Flex Miyazaki shaft.  I'm 60 years old and swing in the 95-100mph range.  I have it set to standard 10.5* loft.

I've had this driver in play ever since getting it, and have never looked elsewhere.  It's by far the most accurate driver I've hit in years, and I hit it for good (for me) distance as well.  Average in the 250-260 area.  I feel no need to look to Ping G400, Taylormade Mx, Rogue, etc.  This thing flat-out works.  

Thanks, MGS!    (UPDATE to say I've changed the loft setting to the standard 10.5 degree after some swing and setup changes. Working out even better for distance and accuracy.)

So far, so good!

The ball is definitely coming off hotter than my 2007 Cleveland HiBore. I hit two of my longest drives on a couple of holes. My only really bad miss was an over-the-top pull that'd go bad with any club. Heel misses are better than toe, however, unless your face is totally shut.

Yup love mine. I might try the new Hogan driver when they add it to their demo program but other than that, not interested in anything else.
