The best driver I've ever hit is the one I got fit for a month ago. A Ping i15.

975J

905s

9015d

9032ls Tour Issued

 

Best ones I've hit in progression. They all found a spot in my bag for a while. I'm debating doing a throwback bag with a steel shafted 975J, DCI 990's, 975 fairways and the TeI3 Longneck.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x
3 Hybrid: Adams PRO 18* w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams PRO 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4-AW: TaylorMade P770 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black Onyx S400

SW: 56* Scratch Tour Dept(CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Scratch Tour Department (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
XW: 64* Cally XForged Vintage w/ DG X100 8 iron tiger stepped
Putter: Nike Method Prototype 006 at 34"

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

There have been a lot of them...but which driver was the best you have ever hit?

My previous driver which I used for over 6 years was a King Cobra SS 350 but I had to find a replacement recently when I realised a serious drop in performance in the driver. Only then I realised the driver face must have flattend over the years and lost much of it's trampoline effect. Fact that it remained in my bag for so long was because I could not find any modern driver that performed substantially better in term of distance and workability.

 

So I got a TM Superfast which was a hook machine, before I got my current Cleveland DST Tour. What's good about DST Tour is it doesn't hook for me, it hits a nice fade by default, but I can draw it slightly, never in danger of the left side. It is a driver / shaft combo that begs to be hit hard, unlike many of the over sized/length drivers in the market, that I had to baby it to avoid hooking problems.

 

IMHO DST Tour is the best driver for me at this point in time.

Now in my bag:

TM SLDR 10.5 Deg with Matrix Ozik 6Q3 S flex

TM VSteel 15 deg 3 wood

Cleveland Launcher Hybrid 18 deg Diamana Red Board Stiff

Titleist ZB Forged Iron 3-PW DG S200 Steel Shaft

Cleveland CG15 46, 52, 56, 60 Wedges

After the death of my old Power-Bilt persimmon My Hogan CS-5 8 degree Aldila 70 stiff. I have carried it for about 4 years now I have tried others but I always come back. I do have a Wishon 949 MC and i have tried several combinations of shafts in it but it does not hit as well as the Hogan to me. When the Hogan dies or cracks the Wishon will probably be my gamer.

Driver --- Honma G1-X Stock R Flex----  3W Callaway Steelhead UST Pro Force Gold 65 stiff--- 2 iron 1980 Macgregor VIP Nike R flex-------- Irons 3 thru PW 1980 Macgregor VIP Hogan Apex shafts--- SW Cleveland 588 Sensicore S-400-- Putter Rusty Santa Fe Bulls Eye Fluted shaft-- Bag Old School Hoofer I had in the stash--- Goes along with my raggety persona

Have you hit the G15?

 

I have hit the G15, and I did notice the face was a little hotter, but it was also comin off with too much spin and too much launch. Maybe if PING made the 7.5 head available to the public, it would be my gamer, but then again I love how workable the i15 is, which is something that was lost a little bit in the G15.

I think I still have one of those Cobra 350's somewhere around here...that thing won me many of long drive contests....solid driver.

Not sure what is it about the SS350, the weight is just right, and the sweet spot is so easy to find. But I'm getting dialed in to my new Cleveland DST Tour. I suspect as long as the driver is well fitted to your swing, any driver can be just as good as others.

 

But just like putters we eventually develop a love or hate relationship with it.

Now in my bag:

TM SLDR 10.5 Deg with Matrix Ozik 6Q3 S flex
