905R vs. FT-3 vs. HiBore vs. TE Exotics

Recommended Posts

I am looking at purchasing a driver, and was wondering if anyone has any comparison of the following heads. Each head will more than likely have a V2 65 or 75 stiff flex shaft.

 

Currently, I am playing the Exotics in a 9 degree with a V2 shaft and would like to see how the 905R, FT-3, and Hi Bore compare.

 

Thanks

I've played the TEE 9* w/Fuji Tour Platform 26.3 and the Titliest 905T w/GD YS-6+. Both drivers performed very well but, not as good as my Callaway FT-3 w/Grafalloy Prolaunch Blue. This club is awesome. It hits the ball on a mid to high traj without sailing and just goes forever. I have the draw bias and it goes dead straight or has a slight draw. It's almost impossible for me to slice it. Like I said the previous two drivers I owned were very good but, the FT-3 is in a class by itself IMHO. :yahoo:

I have heard many people love the V2 HIbore combo. I actually just ordered one. But i heard with the hibore and V2 you might want to go to a higher loft unless you are a high ball hitter.

FWY: Sim 2 Ti w/ TenseiAV Raw Blue 75x
Hybrid: Srixon MKII 18* MMT 105x

Here is a quick, kinda generic observation of my R. I have a 10.5 R with custom ordered V2 65 and it is def. the longest driver I've played. Produces that beautiful ball flight like you see the PGA guys hitting that gets up and seems to just stay in the air forever. We're talking major hang time that just goes and goes. I have played four rounds and I am still surprised at how far down the fairway I find the ball after hitting a good one. Drivers I'm comparing it to are Titleist K, and a few diff. TM tours with various shafts.

I have owned them all and more.

 

1. Ft-3: Sickly low drives, terrible sound, brudal feel, could not stand it. never would hit this again. my handicap went from a 1.8 to a 5.6 with this.

 

2. TEE: Great club. Nice higher flight. wasnt a big found of the sound but the results were great.

 

3. Hibore: Great distance for me but it kinda sucks when i am missing fairways by 40 yards. takes a long time to get used to the look.

 

4. 905R: had the 9.5 and hit it way to low. Had the 10.5 and hit it pretty good. had some problems with accuracy, but definitely a good club. much better then the 905t/s. i really like the way it sets up.

 

5. PING G5. i love this club so much. i have the 10.5. i hit it nice and high but still get roll with it. this driver suits my game the best.
