Forum Thread of the Day: “Best driver for low face contact?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from barony19 who is on the lookout for a driver that “combines forgiveness and great spin control on contact that’s below the center of the face.” A single-digit handicapper, barony19 is currently playing a Rogue SZ, and our members discuss drivers in the market which could be good alternatives.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • getitdaily: “M5…not just because I play it, but because I’ve missed low on the course in just the 2.5 weeks I’ve had the driver and the ball still goes.”
  • Noke: “Cobra LTD and Wishon 919 come to mind. They use similar, flatter roll up/down the face that will help with low contact. LTD has a lower CG, but Wishon 919 is higher MOI.”
  • reider69: “ST190. I have been shocked at how much distance I get on low/thinned shots.”
  • DixieD: “My brother has a F8 plus that he purposefully tees low and hits cut bullets. The thing flies.”
  • GSDriver: “Epic, works well anywhere on the face. Maybe tee it lower if can’t get impact point up to where it should be?”
