What driver are you hitting the best out of these 3?

Good question. I can't help you with the Ping or PXG but I've had the TSi2 for about 6 months and love it. That being said I am totally shaft focused vs. head and I bit the bullet on combining a GD AD DI 6s with the TSi2 head and it works very well. If I had either of your other two options combined with that shaft, I would probably feel the same way about them.....

I hit the Tsi2 and G425Max during a fitting (no PXG). I liked the Tsi2 much better: I got better numbers out of it, and liked the look, feel, and sound more. The G425 felt kind of dull and the sound kind of muted. I came to the fitting really thinking that the G425 could be the right fit for me, but it wasn't.

 

Prior to the fitting, I played 18 with the Tsi2 with the stock shaft. Got along with it well. Easy to hit and fly.

 

Found something else in the fitting that got me better numbers, but the TSI2 was up there.

I will eventually get my hands on  9* TSi2 head and be happy when I do.  I've been able to try a friends out with both his Hzdrus Yellow and my AV Raw Blue 65TX and all it does is hit it dead nuts straight (occasional push and pull), and in play more than my Sim2 and 410 LST.

 

Last year I thought he had his best driving year with a G410 LST and was mad at him for selling the club.  This year with the TSi2, it transformed his game and was almost instant off the tee.  Was both good and frustrating to see as he helped him by at least 3-4 strokes a round from more balls in the fairway and in play at least if he did make a bad swing (his swing is ugly..).

 

Haven't had the chance yet to play around with a 425 Max, doubt I will bother with the PXG.

Have you tried any of these 3 in comparison?

likes or dislikes?

 

currently playing a callaway b21 and just don't feel like i get very much distance out of it..

any info helps, thanks

 

On the B21, were you fit for the head and the shaft? I thought it's goal in life was to reduce sidespin, don't know about backspin. 

 

I mean, the G425Max with the right shaft is probably a fairway bomber. I just picked one up but I am not a stock shaft guy. I have a 10.5/ Alta 55 S and it's good but I doubt if I'm maxing out the  head. I am going to a fitter next month and we will go through the paces with different TPT shafts and adjusting loft, etc. to find distance and less dispersion.

I played the G400 Max for a few years and recently switched to the PXG 0811XF.  I like it a bit better.  Seems a tad longer by 5-10 yards.  I can move the ball left or right with the PXG more then I could with the Max.  The Max just wanted to go straight.  Seemed it took much more effort/change to move the Max either way.   The PXG seems just as forgiving as the Max.  I never played Titleist so can't help there.

Played both G425 max and TSi2

 

PING is more confidence inspiring at address, feel like you can't miss

TSi2 feels and sounds better and for me performed a bit better

For whatever reason, the PING was low launching and I have played every PING driver for the past 6-7 years and never found them to be low launching. This one was and I could not hit it high enough. I dunno. The PING is a hammer if you can spec it out right for you. The Tsi2 is a sleek and clean driver.  Can't really go wrong with either if properly fit. I was not fit for either, btw.

Not to be the annoying wrx “get fit” guy but that is the answer.  Getting fit, or demoing on a simulator is the only way to answer this question.  
All three of those are good heads and will be the right answer for some players.  None of these however, were especially good for me (Sim2 or og sim blew them out of the water).  That’s just me and my swing though.  If I were going to pick one blind (and despite my advice I do that from time to time),I would go with the PXG because it is a good head and a good bit cheaper…

I have both a Gen 4 X and XF.  I found the XF to be marginally better on hits near the toe than the X.  The X is much better on strikes low on the face.  Spin is higher on the XF and distance is longer on the X.  Both can be strong draw biased, with the X easier to make neutral for my swing.  Finally, getting the weights set is crucial.  It’s amazing how much either can be adjusted.  Now that I have the X dialed in, it is my go to driver.  Either the XF or Sim Max will be sold soon.

I have owned, and hit all three. Still own the 0811xf (along with a 0811x). In all fairness, I really didn't give the TSi a fair shake. I was struggling with my swing, and the shaft wasn't a good match for me. I  hit it ok, but wasn't wowed with it, so I sold it without giving it much time.

The 425 Max is one that stumped me. I  have owned three different heads, and numerous shafts to try. I kept losing it to the right no matter what settings, and shaft I had in them. When I did connect on a good one, it seemed to spin too much, and distance was not where it should be. Again, probably due in large part to my swing.

The 0811xf was a game changer for me. I hit it long, and straight. I bought a few extra weights, and have tried different combinations,  and, everything just works well for me. I also have a 0811x, and hit it just as well. My only issue now is which is the starter, and which is the backup. With the prices on PXG's Ebay store, it was really a no-brainer for me. Of course, as always, that was my experience. Yours might be different.

Only demoed the G425, didnt think it was any better than the 410 or 400 Max honestly. Found the Gen 2 XF to be very forgiving and liked the sound.  Tsi2 was the longest for me, maybe fractionally less forgiving than the XF.  Tsi line is great though, I just find you really need a good fit with the Titleist drivers.
