Best for forgiveness and distance

Basically any of the 10K right now should take a look at. Even if not 10K anything as a Max driver should get a look.

With the recent $100 price drop and lots of shop credit, I have one on order  myself with a Ventus Blue 1/2 inch short. 

I live in Sweden and this Cleveland driver costed me brand new from shop $379 with stock shaft Tensei Blue AV 55. I think this driver is a sleeper and will be forgotten because of limited marketing.

The Callaway Rogue ST Max driver is the most forgiving/long driver that I've personally tried.  It's my current driver and, although, I see no reason to change, I'm very curious about trading up to the AI Smoke when the prices drop later this year.

any 10K head (prior Ping was the MOI king in general) but don't forget, the most forgiving driver is a well *fit* driver.

 

If you have the wrong weight and/or profile good luck timing it consistently.

 

I'll game an old head with the right shaft over a 2024 10K and mystery shaft any day...

Same story for me. The Rogue ST Max has been great for me, but keep hearing so many wonderful things about the AI Smoke that I’m sure I’ll give it a whirl at some point.

Also find the Rogue ST Max to be as long/forgiving as anything else I have tried with the Graphite Design MAD.

Appearance is a factor in my confidence with a particular driver, not just the technology.

That’s crazy I have a graphite design mad as well! Yeah appearance deff plays into deciding a driver as well if you don’t like the looks gonna be hard to be confident over.

AI Smoke TD and TD MAX.  First one is fade biased while forgiving for a low launch/spin, player's head and the second is ultra forgiving, dead neutral without excessive spin.  Toe miss is especially forgiving for both.  GOATS!!!

That’s typically my miss is the toe shot on everything! Might have to try some stuff out I have a hard time straying away from TM but maybe that’s hurting me!

I'm a self admitted TM fan boy.  I've been playing their clubs since I was a kid.  However, Cally really knocked it outta the park this year with their AI Smoke line up especially driver.  FYI, I just picked up a Qi10 tour off BST and it's arriving today.  I said I wouldn't replace my OG SIM ti, but got the itch again, lol.

If we are talking about average on course distance, and not max distance, or good hits on a sim, then its G400MAX. Theres no rollout in the woods or the lake. Hit em straight.

They're all forgiving, they're all long IMO. Biggest improvement was switching to LS model heads after being fitted. Always went with core models because I drive the ball like s**t.

 

I think because everything is forgiving now, eliminating the left miss >> forgiveness for me.

 

Anyway, I play an LTDxLS and have a G430 LST in the bullpen. Both are awesome.

I always thought LS models were for better players that’s why I always stray away from them and either use a standard model or max model
