im just getting back into the game after an 8 year break. have been using an old hibore given to me from my dad and have been spraying it everywhere. just brought an old 975D which i was using before i quit and it as good as the day i first had one. Could only find an 8.5 would have loved a 7.5 degree. <br />
i cant get over how odd the big heads on the new drivers look. Like swing a stick with a balloon on the end of it.<br />
Any significantly larger club head will give you more forgiveness, higher launch, and higher ball speeds. If you are considering playing one of these dinosaurs go with the 983K.<br />
Can I get some comparing/contrasting info on the three drivers listed above? I've read through the historical data on Tiitleist's website but was also looking to hear what you WRX'ers have to say about these clubs. I didn't list the 983E because it's only available in 8.5 or 9.5 loft and I really prefer a 10.5 loft.<br />
I have two 975D drivers, both are 8.5* loft. One has a steel shaft which I love to death. Would game it more often but the 8.5* loft is pretty demanding. Been looking out for a 11.5* and 12.5* to come up on the bay, but missed out a couple. This week I just won an "almost" new 10.5* for a great price.<br />
My Titleist Driver journey is a bit inverted which is what brought me to this thread. Here's my Story. I just returned to golf this year after a 10 year hiatus. Always loved Titleist drivers as a junior, but never owned one. So naturally my search began with the new TS driver (2019) Liked it immediately but found better value in buying a used 915 D2 ($149). I mean, after all it was still so much newer than anything I was playing. I couldn't get used to the HUGE club head (460cc) so traded down to a smaller, older 913 D3 - 440cc ($100) Well, after a few short months and golf lessons, my golf coach/instructor convinced me to find a driver with more loft. I traded down once again to the 910 D3. Love this driver completely, put in a Tour AD GT5-S. This driver is in my bag now. Today, I stopped by a yard sale with a titleist golf bag. In the bag was a 975j 7.5 degree with the UST Proforce purple and yellow shaft, 983k 8.5 degree with Graffalloy Prolite both original with stiff shafts and matching head covers. Also in the bag but less important to me, Taylormade 3 wood, Callaway Steelhead III and a PING Putter. All items including the bag filled with miscellaneous golf tees, balls, etc for only $20. Nostalgia tells me to reshaft, regrip and game the older titleist drivers. I'm just not sure which one. The smaller 975j or the 983k. I'm dying to take them out to the range but looking for experienced feedback from the golfers on this site. Any more info? 975J or 983k? I know I'll be jeopardizing forgiveness and even distance. Just love the older smaller drivers, I still game Mizuno MP-14's from 20 years ago (2-pw) despite the weaker lofts and putt with a Spaulding TP Mills blade. Thanks.
I have a 905S arriving in today's mail! Loved the 983K with a Speeder in it. Hopefully the deep face 905S hits just as lovely for me.
The 983k had a reputation for cracking. Had two myself that cracked and dang near cried both times. Bag a 905s now and can say it is a great club. Bought it at Play It Again for $30 mint. Reshafted with a Black Tie and off to the races.....
Hit a quick 9 holes today and brought the 905S. Outstanding club. Going right to the gamer bag. First hole 405yd par 4. Piped one up the gut leaving me 121yds in. 4th hole was my next try. Slight fade (my norm) 265 yds right side fairway. Similar results on my last 3 holes I hit it. No big misses and very confidence inspiring size & shape.
The 975D I have in my storage barrel is 45 inches long.
is this the normal length for this club, or has it been reshafted? The 975D head seems way too small for a 45 inch shaft
45 inches was the stock length for the 975d. I played my 9.5 with the crappy stock stiff shaft for 8 years and just loved it. I still have it in the garage. One of these days, I’ll get it reshafted at 44 inches and try it again just for fun.
