What's the loudest driver ever?

They are far from the worst, but the sound of the Ping G425 is inexcusable for a modern, high-tech driver by a major OEM.

just wait for the g430.  Ping did a great job reducing the high pitch sound on it.  With the sound change Ping may be in the to 2 for sales starting out.

TM Burner Superfast 2.0 should get a special mention if not already. I remember owning one in my earlier 20s arrogantly enjoying how loud it was at the range.

It is not the loudest, but the Epic Flash Subzero was disappointingly loud.  It was a great driver but sounded horrible.  You would think all the tech that goes into a Callaway driver wouldn’t sound like a tin can getting kicked down the street.

Haha.  I actually liked the sound, but I stopped bringing it to the range as I felt like it might disturb others.

I had the Wilson triton, and when you had the metal plate on the bottom it was quite loud. It was like the resonating sound of the 2 pieces of metal against each other or something that made it so loud, with the carbon base plate it was much more muted. But the most comments I've ever got about driver volume was when I was playing my '17 M2... 🤷‍♂️ I stuffed a few swiffer sheets into it through the weight port and it sounded better after that.

I remember the Cobra Speed LD from 2007 being extremely loud.   It was probably my first "real" driver that I bought.   It was a terrible sound.

When I first started playing a couple times a year my Mom bought me this non-conforming 500 cc driver for Christmas one year, and I didn’t know any better at the time. The thing was a cannon!
