Hi guys jus wanna check around which is the best sounding Driver around...
Cos i dun play too well so at least must sound nice when teeing off... Embarassed

Me used to own a nike driver but didn't liked the sound and now using a cleveland Hibore XLS.. Getting sick of the sound too... Haiz... No

Hoping to look for a loud driver with a sharp ting when teeing off...! Hahaha

I understand that every individual have different taste and preference... So no offence to all forumers and e various brands. Razz .

the old taylormade R7 460 driver. if hit at the sweet spot. its more of a hollow yet loud piangg sound. but also depends on how hard you hit the ball.

One of my favorite is the old Titleist D2, it gives a very hight pitch sound of "ting".

Currently my favourite is the COBRA ZL.... Sound so sweet when u got it hit at the sweet spot which is not difficult as its really a very forgiving driver. Best sounding Cobra Driver ever indeed! I love you

I have tried tourstage X Drives and I find they sound great! Not too loud and got metallic powerful sound. You should try one.

Hmmm... Seems like e ping drivers are e ones I am looking for...
Loud and high pitch sound... Hehehe...

Think need to test one out...

Heard e cobra L5V driver and it didn't appeal to me leh..

Tried e titleist D909 but it wasn't loud enough though...

Tried e TM tour burner.. Nice sound and feel but e pitch wasn't high enough..

Any idea e price range for e ping drivers?

Think me going crazy liao... Hahaha

The best sounding driver is my fren ....think his HC is less than his total fingers

you see....when my driver is being tee-off by him, my driver sound so nice.....but when it is by me,....sighhh..... (hint: I am known as a pee-shooter)

There was something about the ZL which I tried yesterday which makes me wanna give it my vote. I don't know if it's the best sounding driver but it definitely sounded smooth to me.

I also think that Ping drivers sound sweet.

My Cleveland Launcher (not the HiBore Monster XLS) also sounds decent.

You got a hold of the the ZL to game yesterday TS? Nice! It gets my vote for the best sounding driver I've hit to date. Nice meaty "thwack" on impact.

And I still love how my Cleveland Ti 460 sounds at impact. A good cross between a thwack with just enough of of that metallic ting. Not too loud, not too muted, just nice. Very Happy

I'm still sold on the sound of my TM Tour Burner. Really solid thwack, without sounding harsh or sharp. Not eardrum busting like the ONOFF ones.

You want eardrum busting - try the CL HB Monster XLS Smile (or the Sumo 5900) Smile
