    My choice is the Titleist TS3. Long, no dispersion and very forgiving for a player's driver.

    The amount of bull spit I read in this site is always good for a laugh.



    I mean really, you’re never going to meet 99% of the people who post on here so why try to impress people with loads of crap?



    The average swing speed with driver on tour is about 117 and the average on this site is about 120. Same goes for distances.



    Laughable at best, sad and pathetic at worst.

    So the cobra F9 appears to beat the gmax ?

    If can get your hands on a tour issue (real tour issue) m4 and compare that to any of the drivers, promise the m4 is a gem and had to beat.

    Play a m3 but the rogue was a little better dont care about distance just for workability and flight.

    Isn't the most popular driver of 2018 - the G400 Max?



    I don't plan to change. Tired of getting accustomed to a new driver every year.

    I've got the Ping G400 with Tour shaft. Have tried the G400max with the Tour shaft, Rogue, Cobra F8 and the M3. Not once has the G400 been beat.

    Not too surprised with these results. Thought the Titliest D2 would have a little bit more interest though.

    ****! It's a landslide win from Ping! I can't remember the last time I had no interest in getting a new and different driver. Well done Ping!

    I’m regretting selling my LST now after reading this post. Sometimes I get a little too trigger happy about selling my clubs.

    There were lots of great drivers in 2018. Ping Gmax, LST, f8, m3 m4 Rogues, etc etc. That being said I wanted either the Ping Gmax 400 or Callaway Rogue SZ. They seemed to be the two best for me. I'd say the Gmax is top dog but the prices haven't budged and nobody is selling them. Typical price well over $300 used which is a good thing (resale value). However I found a Rogue sz in excellent condition for $182. So i guess my vote is the Gmax but it's not in my bag.

    Maybe but this thread should be titled ‘Of the drivers you’ve hit, which did you like the best and what’s in your bag’. Most here won’t have any experience with 85% of the drivers on that list. Add in the biases some have about brand and their favorite pro and you get results that are highly subjective. In reality the absolute best driver of the year could be a Tour Edge, Xxio or Wilson and nobody would know....

    If this site bothers you so much then why be here? I know some people like to embellish but that's on them not on you. This site is good for a laugh sure but it also has some good information and has become a go-to for me when I'm in the market for something (which happens too much according to my lady)
