Name your most visually appealing driver last 5 years

Recommended Posts

Looks alone - non-performance considerations though that is obviously a bonus 

 

what is the best looking, to your eye, driver you think has been put to market in the last 5 years?

 

bonus points for pictures and/or why do you do or don’t play that model?

 

for me it’s the TSi3 and 430cc 2016 m1. Smaller front to back, pear profile that work best for me. St-190 mizuno up there too.

New school look has to have the Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS right up there. Callaway DNA shape with the matte finish crown is a great combo. 

 

Overall hard to look past the Titleist TSi3 though. Classic never gets old and the TSi3 is about as classic (and classy) as it gets.

Stealth Plus has to be the coolest/cleanest looking modern driver within the past 5 years.  Rogue ST sole looks really good but I'm not a fan of how the crown looks at address.

I thought the Sim 2 with the darker carbon fiber was stunning. Too bad the performance never agreed with me.

It's funny how taste can differ so much. 

 

I think the Sim line was one of the most hideous looking clubs I've ever seen. 

So accurate. Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. I play a Stealth now and not really am a fan of the look. I think everyday about customizing one through TaylorMade to have a white crown to get the look I like back.

The driver I'm using now is absolutely perfect to my eye. It's the Callaway Mavrik 440 Single Diamond.

 

440 cc, obviously, with a nice round and compact-ish shape in the back and a kind of high toe. The top line is nice and straight, not rounded like so many modern drivers. Looks fantastic behind the ball and extremely easy to aim. I've never hit a driver better.

G425 LST for me. 445cc, great shape and I actually like turbulators.

 

Also really like the black / white / silver look of the line.

I agree 100% with sim and that shallow face.  Although I cant part with mine.

While the stealth+ doesn't have the same visual appeal, results with it just can't be beat...and I even had my sim setup with a heavier back weight. I loved my sim....literally everything about it. Stealth+ was just better....except I can't hit it off the deck or a kicked up grass tee off tight par 4s. Helped that I was able to do this with my stealth+...
