Driver Progression (how many have you had)

Recommended Posts

Couple of comments... in the cell phone industry, asia mobile users switch every 6 months, europeans ~8 months and usa folks is 1year... i don't know about golf equipment stats! i already want new irons, and i've gone through 2 putters and a lot of wedges (1x52, 3?x 56, 2x60, now 54/58).

 

i've only had 2 drivers in the 3 years i've played. I have mixed feelings and a thin wallet, so i actually never try other people's equipment upon the fear i will need to buy one of theirs instead!!!!

 

2003-2005 - Nikent something (360cc)

2005-now Taylormade r5 Stiff, 10.5, (should have bought 9.5) stock shaft (i think i need a different shaft)

My but most of you are young. :cheesy: Not too many persimmon or laminated clubs listed. I cannot possibly remember all the driver since 1964. First one was either a Northwestern driver or a spaulding T flight that was some kind of composite (plastic) head.

I really miss the sound of a balata ball being hit by a macgreagor persimmon driver. I still have a TM tour preferred withan Aldila HM40 that I wll take out and hit now and then tho the head is smaller than my hybrids.

WOW - I would like to extend a heartfelt HO UP to some of ya. In the dictionary, under the word HO - there would be your pictures, lol.

 

My list, from now to then. (still have them all, lol)

 

R510 TP 8.5* w/757 speeder stiff - currently in bag - love this club - par 5s in two range most of the time and the occasional par 4 green.

 

R5 TP 9.5* w/Al NV 65 stiff - boomer plain and simple, but head to big, shaft not a 757 (lol), loft to high.

 

Titleist 975J 8* w/T-speeder xstiff - great club, but the shaft is a board.

 

Callaway Hawkeye 8* w/Proforce 65 stiff - love this club, still use it - its a love of labor to get this thing over 300 yards

hmmm..... there hasn't been that many. I tend not to change drivers that often. I've actually changed wedges more than anything, which is kinda wierd.

 

1999-2001 some Dunlop Driver that came as part of a complete set

2001-2003 King Cobra offset

2003-2005 Callaway Great Big Bertha

2005-Current TM R580

 

I'm actually getting fit for a new driver tonight, so we'll see what I end up with.

Damn Gocchin!!

 

How the hell do you guys support this habit? That is some serious CHA-CHING being layed down for the lists of drivers I am reading!!

 

Here is my progression and how I got to the next stage so no laughing!!!

 

Since starting the game in 2000, I have owned:

 

Knight 460 Ti 9.5*- stock shaft - STOLEN with all my other clubs

Team Daiwa Ballistic 335 9.5* - UST Proforce 65 - bought with set then traded for

Titleist 975J 8.5*- Titleist Stock X - Robbed @ gunpoint for this, my wallet, and rest of the set at Cobbs Creek GC.

Titleist 975LFE 7.5* - YS-6 stiff - traded up

TaylorMade R580 8.5* - YS-7 TSX - broke head 4 times and TM replaced it with R5 Dual

TaylorMade R5 TP Dual N bias 8.5* - YS-7 TSX - sold to brother after Nike, Callaway, TaylorMade fitting.

 

Next in line: TaylorMade R7 SuperQuad TP 8.5* - Diamana Whiteboard 83 X

 

Not having very good luck with this stick build, have the shaft already but finding a R7 425 TP or a Superquad TP that is an 8.5* head + open 2* is impossible. NOBODY ANYWHERE HAS, STOCKS, or CAN ORDER THIS HEAD FOR ME unless I am willing to wait 5 - 6 weeks! I guess I will just have to wait until the US Open is over before I can get my hands on one. Might have to go with a Titleist D2 7.5*, I have nooo patience!!

Callaway XR Pro 9* Mitsubishi Fubuki zt 70x tipped .5"
Callaway XR Pro 14* Mitsubishi Fubuki z-fw 85x
Mizuno MP- 33 3-pw KBS-Tour x stepped x 2
Nike VR Forged 52*,56*,60*
Mizuno Bettinardi C-03 Blade @ 33"
Titleist Prov1x
