I am currently using a old TM Burner driver 10.5degrees.

Wish to increase distance and larger club face for forgiving. Am looking at Titleist 910D2 and Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0.

Which one is more suitable for me?

I stand to be corrected but I think the TM Superfast sweet spot is smaller. However, if you can connect, it's gone............zoom!

I'm not sure if you are ok with it, but I use a SQ Machspeed Black 10.5 Square driver.

Pretty light with the regular shaft and it gives me the distance I'm looking for off the tee so I'm not complaining.

technically, I think the TM Superfast 2.0 will fly and fly becoz of its 46inch shaft.

But you have to be accurate to attain "draw" distance.

Lastly, do you have a budget for Honma Beres?

My golfmates who are in their 50s and 60s are bombing their ball, sometimes 50yards more

Of the two i say titleist it is accurate and it's alright distance ,but if you want long go for NAKASHIMA. the think i like about nakashima is that you got proper fitted for it , you don't choose the shaft who look better for the driver.... i've done that too many times ..

TIT-List 910 (go to their demo and ask to be fitted, also Free)

i also using burner 09 driver 10.5 it is very forgiving and a long distance...which can carry 200+ meter for me normally can drive 230-240...but the issue is it will causes me have some small fade when i force for some distance more...

but this i had to control my swing as the shaft too light and whippy...

TM superfast 2.0 it looks cool but i dun like the impact sound...it doesnt turn me on...

i tried 910 D2 with l'ilma shaft stiff...it is tremendous...feel solid when i 1st hit...too bad is quite high price to hire..."hee i still a student so no money go for expensive weapon"

just my personal view...good luck and wish u found a good driver...

i recommend Cobra S3 or titleist 910. both can seriously break your distance and improve confidence. you'd love the feeling they give and the sweet spot especially cobra really huge.

just some notes: 910 is for better player who can really square the club face and the ball comes off hot, cobra on the other hand more for beginner and slicer/hacker like me who like to hack the ball, forget to close the club at impact and shout "holycr*b" followed by "fore".

hope that helps. Laughing

Between the 910 and Superfast, i'd say go for the 910.

Superfast 2.0 has this weird impact feel and sound.
Other than these two, G20 comes strongly recommended.

But hey, for distance gain, more likely coaching and more practice will help more instead of equipment.

Try every driver with as many shaft variations as is possible! What works for others may not work for you.

I think old TM burner are forgiving enough and can be very long depending on whether the shaft are fitted for you.
The other 2 club that you are suggesting can't give you extra distance or much forgiveness if we are comparing the same shaft in them.
If you have the money and want to have fun, just go on buying and trying, I am doing the same but I am poor so I can only buy and try on 2nd hand club. Wink
But if you are serious about getting a better distance, go for a proper fitting session and get a shaft that will fit to your ability. (BUT again here, your ability may change in time so..... cyclops )

Titliest 910 is indeed good but not easy to handle. Try the new Nike Machspeed Black, looks good... am still using my TM Burner Superfast driver, forgiving and affordable.

MST (MBGC) golf is selling TM Burner Superfast 2.0 at $299 and R11 at $399... if u interested!

Good luck and enjoy shopping!
