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.
