What driver are you playing and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking drivers. WRXer ‘Hogan9’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I play the Ping G400 10.5* with the stock Alta regular shaft. I’m 70 with a torn rotator cuff and really struggle with distance off the tee. I’ve tried various models of almost every brand out there, and the G400 is the longest and straightest for my swing.”

And our members have been revealing their driver of choice and why it made its way into their bag in our forums.

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.

  • BogeyParBogey: “M3 440 9* with Tensei White stiff. I don’t hit the ball that far (good ones go 220-230), but for whatever reason this driver has been much longer for me than others. The ST190 9.5* with Atmos Red regular was an absolute disaster to start the year.”
  • TaylorMadehunter1: “Mavrik Sub Zero 9*, Callaway green dot adapter set to -2, Tensei Raw White 65TX. Tried just about every offering out there this year and this one has been the best performer for me personally. Seems to have eliminated most of my duck hook shots and have at least made them more playable. “
  • EvoXWW: “Cobra F9 9* w/ Tour AD TP 7X. Hit straight bombs with it all last year, 290 avg hitting 81% FIR. However, this season I’ve lost all consistency and distance. Distance is down at 260 avg and only hitting 57% FIR. I have never been fit, so I’m looking to getting a fitting session with the TSi series to see how it compares.”
  • scooterhd2: “Ping G410+. I’m really drawn towards the slightly heavier head weights. I tend to get super quick, and my tempo is really good with the 410. One of the rare setups that is super forgiving, but also has a deep mode where it can get as long as anything. Never hit 300+ yards drives before, and when this I hit one every other round.”
  • LUXOR54: “Titleist 915D3 8.5° A1 setting w/ Diamana D+ limited 70-S. Always been a fan of smaller headed drivers, 440 and under just suits my eye. Had a spell with the sldr 430, but it would occasionally knuckleball and just fall out of the sky, misses were erratic. The 915 with its slight fade bias, produces straight tee shots and the occasional power fade. Can tee it high and send low spin monsters, or tee it down and hit wind-fighting bullets. It’s put me in parts of the fairway that I’ve never been before, and when I miss it, results aren’t bad either.”

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member Tourseeking – Rare Cameron Maiden America cover

There are rare, and then there are really rare covers and this falls squarely in the really rare category. It’s priced according but would make a great addition to any collection.

Member slalomdude – Ping Hoofer Tour bag

Were used to seeing rare and hard to find, but it’s not often Ping releases something that captures attention like this. The bag is new with tags and is being offered at a great deal!

Member awtryau89 – TaylorMade SIM Rocket 3-wood

This is truly one of the fastest little “rocket ship” fairway woods on the market, and this is your chance to get your hands on one for a great deal with a Graphite Design BB.

What GolfWRXers are saying about this ‘filthy good combo’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been responding to a driver combo which one of our members swears by. The WRXer in question is ‘QuigleyDU’ who has paired up Taylormade’s Original One (13.5 degrees) with a Fujikura Ventus Red 9x (Tipped 1″). On the combo, ‘QuigleyDU’ says he uses it as a second option off the tee and praises its launch qualities.

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.

  • b.helts: “It sure looks good. I love the smaller size and the profile of the Original One. Been looking for an 11.5 to make up a short bag. But the 11.5 are rarer than hen’s teeth.”
  • BlueDragonKorea: “The creativity to build this club.. wow!”
  • Puttersaurus Rex: “Glad I clicked. Nice looking build! I also play driver, then OO mini. My mini is the 11.5 turned up. With Motore speeder 6.1 – not as beastly, but such a fun club. Mine is 43.5″, and is used as a safe option off the tee.”
  • bladehunter: “Ventus red – the underrated red-headed stepchild of the Ventus line. I love mine in a driver. If you’re a guy who doesn’t have a positive AOA with driver, try the red. Gets it up and doesn’t spin.”

Entire Thread: “This combo is filthy good”
