This is going to be super biased. May as well call it the what's in your bag survey.

I know it’s a 2020 shootout, but honestly if the G400 Max was on there I would have voted for it. The G410 Plus got my vote.

Awesome, we need more stuff like this!!

I tried Cobra, Calle and TM releases. The only one that would tempt me away from my F9 would be the Mavrik Max and I decided to save the money. Actually that isn’t true - I spent it on SuperSpeed sticks instead.

I voted Mavrik. Currently playing F9, and just bought a Mavrik. Going to put them head to head and see who wins. I demoed several new drivers a month ago and in that trial the Mavrik was 15 yds longer and more consistent then all the others including mine. But the course will be the deciding factor for me.

So I hit both SIM drivers, both Cobra and both Mavrik drivers. Of those i preferred the Cobra SZ. I liked th flight of the SIM Max, but not the sound. I wasn't a fan of the Mavrik at all. No LM data, just hitting them side by side. Pure opinion, not based on data. When I get fitted, i may change my mind

To be honest. I voted for something not in my bag. My set up is best for me. But is not what I would call a majority fitter.

Sim Max for me.

Had the G410 Plus all last year, loved it to the point where I put every driver up against it numerous times just for the reassurance, it came out on top every single time BUT....then TM decided to bring out the Sim lineup, I’ve never been able to get along with TM woods with the exception of the 2016 M2. They did something different this year because these drivers are insanely good, saw 0 drop off in forgiveness compared to my G410 and also saw 6-8 yards of gain off the tee, one thing I love with the Sim Max is no ballooning into wind, just a fiery straight shot, the G410 Plus has tendencies to spin up on me into wind. Twist Face seems to actually work this time around and I can finally draw with the high toe without having to worry about the random high fade. Excellent all around performer.

Don’t own one (yet) but Mavrik.

M5 is best driver I’ve had in a long time. SIM can’t beat it. One half hearted simulator try and Mav beat M5 in consistency and was easily as long for me. I can’t imagine how much happiness I’d find if I had it dialed in.

Didn’t the ink my G410 LST could be kicked out but for me the SIM was just that much better. Longer, straighter, better sound and feel.

I play the Ping G LST, I have the G400 and G410 LST heads in the house, I've tested all against each other and the G just gives me better overall performance, the G410 LST sound is amazingly better though...

The SIM tested out best for me, but not really a big improvement over my current BStone J715 Golf Design Tour AD XC-6X combo.

The fitter didn't have this shaft for a true one to one test.

Another vote for the 410 LST. Not even sure why I moved it out of the bag. If the G400 doesn't work out, I will be grabbing another. I have not tried them all but the LST did everything well...

I have a tie. Sim Max Project X green and Mavrik Sub w/ Ventus Black. Not sure why they both work, considering they are intended for different players. Until I get out and do some on course testing, both will be in the bag.
