    G30 ls Tec is the most anti hook driver I have ever played, far more than the newer ping versions. Cobra Ltd pro runs it close second.

    It's funny because, you are using what has been widely considered one of the best drivers put out by Taylormade.



    Fix your swing, not your driver. You'll do the same thing with another driver unless it promotes more spin.



    A new driver is a band aid.




    I hear you. My misses overall are left, but I'm a pretty good stick who is aging and don't currently have a ton of time on my hands to really get better. I was a +2.5 or so at one point (not any more), so I doubt I'm going to really improve much. Just looking to optimize my equipment to best suit my common miss....left. Hence the request for suggestions from my wrx people who may have more knowledge and may suffer the same as me.




    I hear ya, brother. No offense intended at all. Hope none taken.



    I'm a huge advocate (as well as most pros, fitters and coaches) for us amateurs and low / high cappers alike to LOFT UP, get more spin (2200 - 2400 depending on swing speed) and ideally, make sure you have the right shaft and right club head and your gamer ball with yuo at the time of being fit.



    When you start looking at low low spin drivers then, you will find your slices hard over right and your draws hard hook left. Ya you'll get the 1/10 immaculate shots that will roll out 360+ yards but, I'd take consistency any day. Hence, why I went M6, EF white, and play Nike RZN Tour / TP5 Balls. I know what I'm hitting and I'm much better for it.




    Agree with your philosophy here, but averaging 2200-2400 is a very low spin target point, nothing high spin about those numbers. Unless your bringing 170+ ballspeeds, you don't want to live any lower than that. 2500 is a better average target for the mid/high capper. That way, the very high toe shot isn't a 1200rpm knuckle falling out of the air 50 yards left.

    Find a 16 m2 in 9.5. Turn it to the lowest loft setting. If you spin that up or hit it left then





    Go get lessons, your swing is funky.

    2016 m2 turned down and Ltd pro would be my suggestions, m3 turned down would be right up there. If you can find an older tour issued head with a face angle of 2.5-4.0 that would be another option. Superfast tp long hosel or superfast tp 2.0 were very fade bias heads.

    Let's not forget to point out to the OP about the "design flaw" with the SLDR. I think there were extensive threads about it, but if I recall, wasn't the adapter causing it to be way too weight biased towards the heel resulting in a lot of lefts? I think guys were replacing a weighted toe screw or something to offset it. Regardless, the SLDR is one of the longest and lowest MOI heads produced. Nameless options are gonna help bump up MOI and anything really flat is gonna be as anti-left as your swing allows.



    No head is gonna correct a snap hook swing flaw, but there are some great options. I know a few guys mentioned it, but the King LTD Pro is about as flat and anti-left as they get. I mean big time.
