If you could only have one in your bag?    Personally.... G400 Max

2016 M2

Mine is the one in my bag, taylormade M4.

The 410 Plus gives me more confidence than any other I've hit.  The ST190G I had a few years ago was really good, too.  Probably didn't give it enough time to become a favorite.

G400.

If it only had a faster face it would be almost perfect.

I hit a few others longer, but the G400 is the most consistent driver I've owned.

Next best would be the Great Big Bertha from 2014/15

I loved the Cobra L4V X driver for many years.      But now I love the Taylormade M4,  been much longer for me, rolls more.

2015 Callaway Great Big Bertha was probably all around my favorite with combo of accuracy and distance. If I could have had that driver with the sound and feel of my Sim, I don't know if it could have been replaced. 

 

On another note, I have a fitting on Saturday so potential to make an update with a new favorite driver.... and every other club in the bag.

I'm still using a Cobra Fly-Z, so that would be my admittedly biased answer. I'd say TM M2 (2016) or Sim. Both are approaching legendary status.

I actually have two.  Classic cult following, FT-9 TA.  Probably one of Cally's best drivers of all time.  Extremely high ball speeds for me and that low bullet that cuts through the wind.  I had 2 of them shafted with the DI and Motore Speeder Tour Spec 7.2.  It would almost never balloon no matter how hard I went at it.  Mishits were very penalizing, but when hit on the screws, it would shoot off the face like a rocket launcher.   I had an R11 dot head that I cracked the face.  I would swap out between a Matrix Proto shaft and VTS Black.  440 cc head that spun so little that it was a hanging knuckle ball in the air.  Second longest drive at 355 yards.  Ball speed was in the low 180's.  Very hot head.  Not nearly as penalizing as the FT-9 TA.

I’m gonna say the Cobra ZL Encore was the first true fairway finder for me...was in the bag for a long time.

Ya know Phiz, this is my favorite all-time driver in over 40 years of golf, but after busting 3 tour issue heads in less than 2 years I had to move on. Nothing has ever felt and/or performed as consistently well as the FT-9 TA. Having said all that and barely staying within the past decade I have to go with the TM-SLDR 430 (for time restraint purposes only). I hit the longest drives of my life (at almost 50 yoa) and when I was on, it was absolutely mind-blowing. When I was off, it was more punishing than 30 days "in the hole".

I'm still stuck in a 2014 Cobra Bio Cell driver. 

 

I went to a Callaway fitting last summer with money hanging out of my pockets because I just really wanted to buy something new, anything new, and couldn't find anything even close. I think I'm one of those types of players that just gets really-really use to something and then I struggle to hit other things. Like I don't think I can just grab my friends irons and hit them well within a few swings.

 

I love to see all the votes for the Ping's. I think I'm going to get the G425 max this year and just grind with it on the range until I get comfortable with it. I can't stay in this Cobra for another 10 years, I just can't.
