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~

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
