Best NOT Adjustable Driver?

Recommended Posts

I get the appeal of adjustable clubs and I’m probably worse off for it but I’m a traditionalist and really not consistent enough to know what my set up should be anyway. Looking for the best NON adjustable driver. Been out of the market a while so need some education please.

Bridgestone j38 9.5 Motore F1
Nike SQ 15 Pro Platinum
Titleist 585h 18 Excalibur
Adams Pro 22* Aldila Red
Nike Vapor Speeds TT Gold Pro 4-PW
Vokey 52 & 58
Bettinardi BB8f

I would just go adjustable and not adjust. Even if you went the used route you just have so many more options and at great value. It’s the age of adjustable drivers, embrace it. That said, the last non adjustable driver I had was a ping g20. Go with that, very forgiving, big a** clubhead and prob for a good price on 2nd swing, eBay, etc.

Quite a bit of Japan market options still available, as well as well-received older models. Do you have a preference for club head size and shape, face depth, face angle?

Get in touch with a Wishon fitter: http://wishongolf.com/find-a-clubfitter/

Get a 919THI fitted to you and forget about it.

I've been very happy with the Cleveland Launcher HB. When I was test driving the different options the Cobra F8 and Ping G400 were the best adjustable [for me], but the Cleveland was more consistent. YMMV

Signature!

Cleveland Hi-bore, a forgiving, long-range, ear-shattering cannon! I've also played a Titleist 907D2, which worked for me but everyone hates. The Callaway FT-9 is held in very high regard. I played an 8.5 degree model that was not right for me, but it was still very long when I connected. My old high school coach refers to it as "The best club Callaway ever made" so I pass that along when anyone asks

Agree. A Ping G25 is hard to beat.

Ping G400 Max driver w/Aldila Rogue 125 Silver 60S

Cobra (Lexi blue) F7 Hybrid w/Aldila Kuro Kage 80S

Ping Glide 55/60 wedges w/Recoil 110S
Ping Anser - the "real deal!"

Aeroburner, I still have 2 drivers and 2 3 woods that are outstanding. I feel like it was a woefully underrated line. The drivers, 3w, and even hybrids were solid. I did buy the tour issue heads with the spec stickers so I knew the specs when building them, there are still a few of those popping up on ebay. Going back farther someone mentioned the Titleist 905. Both the R and the T were great heads too.

I agree with this enthusiastically. I have played many of the Wishon products over the years and the quality is top notch! On a whim I began to stray last season, but today built up some 565 MC irons. I played the 919 for years! Great driver! Quality shaft options, definitely worth a look.

This. And while a lot of Japanese stuff is expensive, all drivers dive in price in time and there are really really good ones your preferences depending under $200 and under $300 if you want to go that far. Their is also an added bonus that you will likely end up with a sick shaft in it as well, like more than cost of club. That is used which is only way I buy anyway.

 

New I think Japanese drivers are ridiculous. Like I am pretty sure I am not $600 shorter with a $40 R7 than any of those. But I could say that for all new drivers.

Played a long time with a 905t. Just got a 905r to play around with. Not sure though. I still hit my 910d2 and d3 from time to time as well. Just like the more solid feel then the newer clubs offer.
