Anybody know of any killer deals for a "low end" stiff/extra stiff driver?

Your best bet is probably Golfworks or Hireko. I've bought from golf steals and deals before and got some wicked deals but that was shafts only I'm not sure how they would be for driver heads. You might get lucky at a local liquidator warehouse but the chances of finding an X there are likely going to be slim.

 

This isn't horrible and it is a Taylormade so it has some brand name to it, even if it is a DSG or GG exclusive http://golfdealsandsteals.com/taylormade-rbz-black-2016-driver/

Taylormade R510TP - Speeder 757 Sonartec NP-99 14* and 17* - NV Green 85 Nickent Genex 3DX 21* - Dynamic Gold SL Titleist 660 4-P - Dynamic Gold Cleveland 54* and 59* - Dynamic Gold Scotty Cameron Teryllium

How about eBay? If you were getting me a driver as a gift, I’d rather have a really good condition used high end driver over a new low end driver. Something to think about.

The point being - why buy a new piece of junk at 100 bucks when you could get a 5 year old driver for 100 bucks. Go find a taylormade R11.

I’m not in that market but would it not be a struggle to find a new R11? The point being that the OP said he wanted something new.

R11? That's an 8 year old crap driver. OP wants new. That bonded RBZ the other guy posted from golfdealsandsteals.com is worth a try. Depends on your budget, OP. The Tommy Armour one I posted for $50 will get a newbie by for a bit too. Driver is the hardest club to hit, no need breaking the bank until someone really gets into the game and commits to playing enough/ getting better.

my point was buy something used in good shape that is at least tour proven. not some walmart special. the r11 is irrelevant I should have said "insert used 5 year old driver of your choice" rather than saying r11

Dude he's giving it as a gift. He wants it to be new. That's his perogative.

 

And the RBZ posted is not junk. It's just as good or better than an R11 or similar clubs.

If anyone is misconstruing anything it’s you. Has ZERO to do with the club you used as an example.

 

The OP said he wants a new club and you continue to insist on a used club even after that’s been pointed out. But if you wanna be a victim have at it.

I would say check out a golf galaxy nearby and see what older models they might have new. Especially if it’s a brand they do not carry anymore. I remember getting a srixon z745 for $50 a couple years back for my buddy. He still loves it and says it’s hard to look at an upgrade given the dollar to performance aspect and driver is his best club

Cobra Max Driver, not a bad driver for $100 new.

I also see Cobra F6's for about $30 more (overstock.com), which is adjustable and a nice driver for the money.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
