You still have the st190? Why wouldn’t you just put that back in the bag?

I own the Epic Flash and Speedzone Extreme. The EF is much hotter, especially on miss hits.  

G410.

Put a Mizuno adaptor back on a shaft for the st190 and took it out today.  Felt much better.  I know it isn’t “hotter” than TS2 but I get more distance with it.  Fairly certain I’m going to order an st200 head and be done with it.  Very slight upgrade from what I have, but I know I’ll be comforatable with the head shaft combo.  Thanks for all the advice.

 

 

I'm late to the party, but going back to the st190 and moving the Titleist is what I'd have suggested.  I would also suggest that you not part ways with that st190.  You need a control club to compare new drivers against, and you need a dependable backup, because sometimes catastrophes happen.

 

It's also good to avoid Titleist, every piece of equipment of theirs you acquire damages your soul.  Must avoid!   🙂

 I was gaming a Mizuno st190 before that and liked it quite a bit, but got a good deal on the ts2 so decided to give it a try.

 Uh, a club's not a good deal if it doesn't work. Keep the st90 and unload the TS2.

New Mizuno drivers got the conforming list. Might want to hold off and check out their new equipment when it’s available.

So I know that there is no real answer to this question without getting fitted.  That said, I’m curious what others think and what direction they would go.  
 

I recently just got a TS2 drivers for my wife and myself.  It’s working out great for my wife, but hasn’t been a great fit for me.  I’m hitting it fine and finding a lot of fairways, but just don’t love it.  I was gaming a Mizuno st190 before that and liked it quite a bit, but got a good deal on the ts2 so decided to give it a try.  It’s just not as long for me as the st190 was.  So I’m going to buy another new driver (most likely used) and sell the ts2 and the st190.  The question is what direction to go.  This driver will last me until spring 2022 in theory.  At that point I plan on doing a full bag fit and getting new irons as well as get fitted for driver.  There is a part of me that wants to go do it this spring but my i500’s are in good shape and I don’t really think I can do much better for my game right now.

 

So, instead of getting fitted for driver now or in the spring I’m going to wait (I know I know 😂 not what anyone in this forum would suggest).  The drivers I’m looking at now are the Mizuno st200, the epic flash, or the cobra sz.  I know I will like the st200 so am leaning a little in that direction.  It is so similar to the st190 that I know I’ll like it but am also curious about trying something new.  Cobra is a company I’ve never used but I like the look of the black and white sz’s and can get one of them new instead of used at a good price.  The color way of the epic flash is not something I’m thrilled with, but if it performs I can get past that.

 

any thoughts or any other drivers I should consider?

Here's my thought.  DON'T GET RID OF THE st190 UNTIL YOU ARE SURE THAT YOU HAVE FOUND A BETTER DRIVER!
