I need a driver for practice. I was offered a taylor made burner 09 and a calloway diablo edge driver at about the same price. I tried them both, it makes no difference to me. Which would you choose.

Given that neither of these 2 drivers make a difference to you, then go with plain aesthetics. Between these 2 drivers, I think the Burner looks more "chio" to me.

I think the Burner is more idiot proof.

I am not able to hit the ball straight, sometimes it is not even airborned, not for the driver.
Hence my difficulty to look for a suitable driver which if i apply the correct technique will see the ball flying straight and further. Now it bags the question whether i should get an idoit proof driver if it means whether i hit the ball correctly or not, the ball will still shoot off straight.
Personally i am looking for a driver which would aid me in learning the correct technique rather than to have high score. Would the dioble edge be a better choice for me if i am not too concerned with the aesthetic aspect of it.

if u r learning, better to get a 2nd hand/used driver. temptations to change once u get the hang of the driver swing is very strong

Although I can never get this right, my take is that the driver isn't really intended to aid your technique. To put it simply, if you have a proper driver swing/stroke, you can use any driver. If you don't have a proper driver swing/stroke, any driver won't make a difference (believe you me, I can vouch for this).

Me says go for Burner.....at $169, it's a steal.

Though it's an old model but still gold, methinks.

Personally, I have never tried the Callawy driver before but for TM, the advantage is that it is really very forgiving on mis-hits. Even if you toe the ball or top the ball, it still takes off. Of course, since it is geared towards distance, it also means when you dont hit straight, you can be in a lot of trouble. Smile
