i've had:

- Golfsmith HiCor w/ R shaft...11* (grandfather made it for me as my first driver)

- Callaway BB 454 w/ R RCH 65 and later an aldila nv 65 s

- Current and fav Titleist 983k with stock regular shaft, im thinkin of upgrading the shaft but i like the club

 

i have only been playin for a lil over a yr and a half so that explains the lack of many drivers, and i quickly outgrew my Hicor because of the shaft flex and weight.

I hate to even think about this, but here goes....

 

Cleveland TC-15 (that's about 1984)

TM Burner Tour Preferred 9.5 Steel

TM Burner Tour 9.5 Aldila HM-40/TourGold

TM Burner Tour 9.5 Aldila HM-50 (this shaft came free! from Aldila after a chance conv. with Kim Carpenter)

Callaway Big Bertha

Callaway Great Big Bertha (Aldila HM-30Tour, BB-UL Pro Series)

TM Orange Steel Burner (Rifle, ProLite)

Titleist 976R 7.0 Penley Platinum (this was probably the best driver I ever had...)

TM 300 7.5 (stock, penley platinum)

TM 320 Tour 9.5 (Penley Platinum, Grafalloy Blue)

TM 320 Smooth Top 8.5 (Penley Platinum, 757, back to Platinum, Fujikura Pro 95)

Titleist 975LFE 7.5 (Penley Platinum)

Kasco VS Tour 7.5 Penley ETA (this was a great driver)

TM R510DF (Penley ETA Tour, Penley Platinum, 757 S flex, 869 X Speeder, 652 X Speeder, Proforce V2)

TM 580XD TP Fuji Six X (sold this one within a week)

TM 300 Tour 8 (two of these, various shafts...getting tired of typing, and the details are starting to give me the willies.)

Titleist 983K Fuji 6 (paid $75 for this one, part of my "R Flex" experiment last year. :kewlpics:

Titleist 983E 10.5 757 X (Up late on Ebay with a few Bass Ales...this is a bad idea for you younger fellows)

TM R7 Diamana 63 S

Callaway FT-2 Prototype Diamana 63X

 

Sadly for the golf retail business, after the TM Burner in the late 80s, not a single one of these drivers was purchased new. Some of the high end shafts were pulls, but I'm patient on Ebay. I paid $100 for the 652, new, $199 BIN for the 510DF, $260 for the XDTP...made $600 on that one.

 

Added it all up, and with the profit I made on the 580XD TP at the time, I've got less than $3K in all this, and I could easily get that out of the "inventory" in the basement.

 

Of all these, the R510DF is head and shoulders above the crowd.

ok... been playing for about 22yrs, and its easier to remember from the current driver first...

 

Callaway FT-3 10 deg draw bias (Good for now, and getting used to the sound!)

 

Ping G2 (sweet, but no the straightest club in the bag)

 

King Cobra SZ400 Unlimited (made the most horrible ear-splitting BANG when I hit it outof the middle)

 

Kasco K2K 11 deg driver: (my back-up and great in the winter off the deck)

 

Callaway Steelhead Plus with steel shaft

 

Ram Formula wooden laminate driver (what a great club, with inlaid brass back-weights)

 

Max Faulkener Avenger wooden laminate driver

 

A beaten up Slazenger 3 wood (i was too little for driver)

  • 2 weeks later...

I have only owned 4 drivers. Here they are in chronolgical order:

 

1993-2000- Ping Eye 2 Persimmon- (Loved it and used my 3W until 2002)

 

2000-2004- Adams SC 9.5 degree with stiff stock shaft (weird looking)

 

2004-current (backup)- Taylor Made 580 XD with Adilia NV 65-S (Great driver, but took a trip through the Palms Springs desert when shaft broke. Now my dinged up backup)

 

Current- Cleveland 460 Ti with Accuflex Evolution. (fantastic driver, will take a lot to move it out of its place)

one word: LOTS

 

I can give you the past three, other than that, in the words of Homer J Simpson: Every time I learn something new, I forget something....like that time I learned about wine, and forgot how to drive....." Marge: Thats because you were drunk Homer: And How!!
