2013 Drivers

Recommended Posts

Being a big tall lefty has its disadvantages, and driver hitting is one of them, although recently it has gotten much better, when I go looking to hit drivers some places have a few drivers, and ones that have a selection usually only have them in R flex, and they only have a few of the major brands. It takes a while to really hit all of them to get a feel for which ones i like best, I went to a local demo days last year and got to hit Tour edge exotics avail. Only in 10.5. Adams speed line did not like it at all.

And then the Titleist 910 D3, which I really liked it had great sound and feel, the fitter was very helpful to try to find an appropriate shaft head combo, but didn't have the right setup that he would have liked to have me try. So when I look for a new driver probably next season, I will look into the 13 year model callaway razr xtreme, and the titelist 913d3. If I shop next year for the 13 year model I an usually find a really good used for abut 199, or might even find brand new for around 250. Not sure since I always replace the shaft.

I'm a Titleist guy when it comes to drivers. I've played the 910 D3 for the last two years. I love it. I tried the 913 D3 just for s**ts and giggles. I ended up taking it home. I have the Aldila RIP Alpha in the 910. I went with the Phenom in the 913. It felt great, but we will see if I like it as well as the Alpha.

I put the Alpha in my 913D3 and it's a great combo for me!

I don't think anyone makes a better looking club the Titleist, just classy. Unfortunately, it didn't perform for myself like the R1 did.

I'm on the same page with you. I am currently gaming RAZR FIT with Speeder VC 6.1 but something triggered me to look for the "NEW" club. When I went to local shops and tried every clubs you can imagine over last month, I came to a conclusion as follows.

 

RAZR FIT XTREME = R1 > RBZ RCTBLZ stage 2 = Cleveland XL Custom > AMP CELL = AMP CELL PRO> PING i20 = PING G25 > 913D3 > 913D2 > Nike COVERT

 

Just to be fair, this is my PERSONAL experience. Don't want to down-talk one to the other but as you can probably see I was very surprised by TM's performance (I am NOT a TM guy at all). I was also surprised by poor performance of 913 where I had great experience with 910D2.

 

Callaway and Cleveland performed well due to their great available-shaft selection (I especially like Black Tie).

However even with made-for shaft on TM drivers, I was very very impressed with their overall performance. Regular R1 with TP shaft (extra $100 upgrade) was an amazing experience.

 

But at the end, I decided to stay with my current driver yet changed wood and hybrid. blah blah blah

 

 

sorry for mumbling on your thread. I just wanted to share my thoughts and experience.~

 

Salute~

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
