    This is not the right place for that... but go get fit. Plenty of great options! Ping 410 might be your friend

    62 yrs old here. Coming off of knee surgery last year and noticed a big drop in carry (-10/20yds) I’ve been bagging Ping G400 max >Epic Flash and been stuck in the 200/220 carry range. I switched to XXIO X and carry 220+ with totals being 230+ on nearly every swing. Freakish consistency. I ordered the Prime driver now with the stiff/reg shaft. I now look forward to the last 5 holes of golf now. Easy to swing. Great consistency. It does not deliver the occasional 250+ drive of the Epic but is simply point and shoot now. Sucks getting older. I miss the days of my 510TP/757 Speeder but oh well. Yes , it’s expensive but it’s not just a light driver. It’s an integrated stick that I feel works well for those of us in this stage of our golf story.

    You're absolutely right. The XXIO head and shaft combination is unique. I've tried the same head in heavier shafts and the results were just average...

    Wife just won her 4th best ball tournament in a row. Her scores are just plummeting with the 20 yards she’s added of the tee and the 20 added by using a XXIO X men’s regular flex 3h. XXIO works for us. Game changer for her. Easier and better golf for me.
