PostSubject: Deep Driver - Replacement for R7   Mon Nov 26, 2012 1:38 pm

I have tried numerous drivers but always end up with my trusty R7 superquad.
Recently, I think there is really some technological improvements (maybe my perception).
A lot of kakis have changed to RBZ. I must say their distances have improved a bit (aka trigger my thinking to change my R7).
But RBZ is more wide than deep. My misses tend to be up/down.
Any bro here has tried a good deep driver recently?
Thanks.

R7 was a good series, but if you compare to the current drivers out there like rbz, r11s,913s,etc, its a few generations of technological improvements. My suggestion is to go to the various demos at the range and test them out. You might also be able to find a suitable shaft for your swing during the session. It's easy to stay in the comfort zone of the old trusted clubs, but if you are starting to lose out in your game, its time to seek an upgrade. Good luck for your hunt!

If you want more forgiving drivers.. go for the 'non-deep' face type. Titleist 910 D2 is a good start... Distance not that much diff actually..

No, chippy.......you are Henry!

Coming back to the topic......you may want to wait till 2013 for loads of new drivers from callaway, Nike, TM....

If nt, 913 sounds like a good WMD to have.

R9 superdeep, but you need to really hit into the ball.
Cos the face is quite thick.
Saw one at Sigma and maybe creative joe, too. and Far East SC.

RBZ also has the tour model with a thicker face. TM selling it for $559 or $599.

Buy liao don't like, can swap with my standard RBZ haha.

A bro is selling his R11s driver.

Think the R11s is quite deep.

Adams 9015D or 9064LS bro. Both are deep faced cannons. And cheap now, if you are able to find.

9064LS is more forgiving, while the 9015D is longer. Pair with the right shaft and you're golden (Xcalibur works well for me in the 9015D).

Actually, I find deeper face drivers more forgiving for me. I guess depends on the swing also bah.
