What driver feels the best

at impact
Nothing is better than nailing a drive dead center on the face. This gives a response that seems different on all major drivers. Funny how they are all a form of beta-ti but all feel different. The r580xd felt really good. The SQ feels amazing on a good solid hit. Some drivers I think feel really hard, like Cobras and the Hi-Bore.

Your inquiry is somewhat of a slippery slope, considering most of those who will entertain the idea of giving their opinion (mind you, i didnt say answer), due to the fact that A: its subjective, and B: the feel can be influenced by the shaft. All things considered, having neurotically tried the top manufacturers drivers with just about every shaft combo during local demo days...Ive arrived at the:

Bridgestone J33R (420), if hit pure, but of course.

!!!!If anyone says Cleveland ti460, they need a smack.

my driver. Launcher Comp. It goes crunch. love it

 

I was at the range today, hitting my Comp, and I had about 8 people ask me what driver I had because it sounded so nice. Never would've thought that. But, the feel is so sweet when you catch the center, basically what I live for now. Trains me to hit the center so I can feel what heaven is like.

Define feel?, because if your looking for the softest feel driver believe it or not the Mizuno MX-500 is the best feeling i've tested,

 

he hardest feel is deffantly the Cobra f speed that feels like a brick but when you hit a good drive you feel it,

 

The best overall fell i personally feel the cleveland comp or hibore is the best, But if you want a driver to not feel like your hitting it i'd go with my nike steel 300cc or the ignite 410cc these drivers feel like hitting wind to me

Easiest question I have seen on this site.

 

The answer is whatever I have spent the most money, recently.

 

One man's trash is another man's treasure - definitely applies to drivers, especially when you mix in a little $$$.

The absolute most flush driver i have ever hit has been a tour issue 983K.......good feeling drivers in the 400cc range would be the original 510df proto.....as for 460cc clubs, the best feeling would be the SQ tour retail and the macgregor nvg2 tour, tour issue.......

 

and the all time best feeling 3 wood is the 970, hands down this one is a clear winner !!!!

My old 1984 MacGregor Muirfield persimmon driver with a dynamic "s" shaft. Purest club I've ever hit.

 

Of course I now have several higher tech clubs: Launcher Comp, R510 TP, and a 983K

 

That Muirfield was amazing! I still have it in the basement. If you've never hit a great persimmon driver, you missed someting.

I will only point out current clubs I've tried where I think the feel was exceptional:

 

1. AGT Aurora with MW 54 - like hitting a forging spot on - soft and explosive

2. Nike SQ Tour with real Diamana 83 (the softer tip in the real Diamana softens up the feel - the tip in the aftermarket Diamana is stiffer) soft and explosive

3. SQ Max with MW54 - it's the tip of the shaft in this setup which resists yet gives a little - nice combo of feel and explosiveness

 

Other comments - Mac NVG2 Tour/Speeder - nice combo of muting and softness; Cally X - can you say clang? Cally FT-3 - can you say overly muted to the point where you void any hot feel. Cobra - clang. Nike SQ with Rombax 6W - ouch! - telephone pole feel.. Titleist 983 when hit on the screws with Speeder 569 - soft, hot, Nike SQ with Stock Nike Diamana - brittle metallica - not really that smooth or soft - the MW54 helps it tremendously.
