PostSubject: Looking for a driver that will give me extra distance, any recommendation   Tue Dec 22, 2009 3:34 pm

Hello all

I am currently looking for a new driver that will give me that extra distance. Any recommendation?

I am currently using a 10degree Maruman Exim Nano 2 driver, is hitting about 200 to 210 M, Shaft is SR. But my ball flight is too high.

I am wondering is it because the shaft is too flex for me.

I hope to be able to hit about 220 - 230 for my drive, any good recommendation?

Thanks

Peter, my long lost bro. You are hitting your driver farther than me. What else you want? Razz

SR Flex shall be just good for 210m drive. Ball going too high maybe due to your swing. Try to film your "head on" swing with high speed video and see your impact - see your left wrist at impact and also see the shaft bending. You shall get an idea from there. Suspect

Try looking for a pro... to iron out the kinks of the swing to make it more efficient... if swing is swee swee already, then see a club fitter to recommend optimal shaft and head options...

Bro, you're welcome to give my HiBore Monster XLS Draw 9˚ a hit. It's supposed to give a lot of distance, especially with the draw bias. When I hit it well (which is rarely), the ball really flies.

Adams 9015D (now with pink NV-55 S flex Razz )

even with my totally wrong swing, 1 out of 4 decent hits (compared myself to the pro on video and i am off-plane by more than 30 degree!!!!!) can achieve longer and more boring flight than my other driver Sumo 5900. Can now roll pass 200m!!! woohooo!!!! Very Happy

Loft could be your friend, less resistance in air than on ground, unless you're ballooning your shots.

Test out a 9degree before going any lower. Though the Hibore Monster and ZL 8.5s look extremely delicious! Laughing

Tried a few drivers recently. ZL, 909 D2, R9, G15...etc. I'm impressed with the G15. Forgiving and long. Try a few yourself b4 deciding.

To be honest, I'm looking for a driver which will give me accuracy.

I think improving distance and accuracy require an examination of one's swing rather than a change in equipment. BUT, I'm the worst person to advocate that.

While the G15 is definitely more user friendly, try the i15. I reckon you get more distance out of it but not as easy to use. So depends on wat you really want. Distance vs accuracy?? Crying or Very sad
