Just got my  Ping G30 today and to say it is the best driver I have ever used is an understatement. I just didn't think one club could be so much better than the competition with regards to dispersion, distance and ease of shaping.

My answer would be none. Started the year with a brand new X hot Pro I picked up on the cheap with my Fubuki Alpha. Pretty much hated that driver. Went back to my original Razr Fit. Found some success with that driver for a short time before remembering why I ditched that all together. Driver has been hands down the biggest sore spot for me that last few years. This year I am committed to doing a full blown driver fitting with no brand loyalty bias(at least in theory). I have never done that before. I'm hoping for better results in 2015.
I'm doing this exact thing next Saturday for pretty much the exact same reason. Last year I had a Diablo Octane 10.5 R Flex that I hated. Didn't realize it was an R Flex when I got it and I went in and tried a couple drivers and liked the AMP Cell the best. Guy at Golf Galaxy said I should play stiff flex. Honeymoon period faded and I tried a new shaft and really just hate it. Instead of tinkering I'm getting an actual fitting and going in with a completely open mind just looking for forgiveness above all else without sacrificing too much distance.

Have been a Cleveland Launcher guy for about 8 years; was hitting the Launcher 460 well, liked the feel and consistency of the stock Fujikara shaft; but in the Fall decided just wanted to try something different and picked up the Cobra AmpCell 2 and loved it.  Its just a tad more consistent (I'm a 95 ss and use reg shafts) and very easy to controll

I actually spent a lot of time with the driver spot the last month. I don't reallynhave any brand loyalty with that particular spot. The G30 won after hitting pretty much every current model on the market.

So is the F12LS finally out?


It's a very good possibility! I'm going to try to take them both out this weekend. You probably know, Dallas has been a chilly place the last couple of weekends!

Haha!

Callaway RFX 10.5° stock stiff Trinity has my vote.

Despite being 45.5", the visual, control, flight, sound, distance, all have been better than good.

It got even better after I switched the 13g to the toe and the 1g to the heel.

Not a Callaway fan but the RFX driver I like.

I tried the Callaway Optiforce (both), Big Bertha Alpha, and Callaway X2-Hot, Titleist 910 D2 and 913 D3, TM SLDR and Jet Speed.

For me the SLDR is at the top of the heap with Jet Speed closely behind it.

I'll have to qualify this answer.....it depends on how well I'm hitting the driver.

1.  If I'm struggling a little bit the R1 was much better on hits that weren't on the center of the club face.
2.  If I'm playing well, I still prefer my 910 D3

Wanting to know what everyone's best driver they used in 2014

I went from a 913 d3 with aldila rip alpha 80 x stiff to a nike covert 2.0 tour kuro kage 70

love the nike, just piped the titleist by about 5 -6 yards mostly all roll on the carry was exact same

but the feel and forgiveness and accuracy much better with the nike plus looks cool as!!
For me it is a tie between the Callaway Big Bertha V and the Ping G30.  Although neither was with a stock shaft.

913 D3 for me, played with the SLDR for a bit, stock head weight was too much for me, sam goes for the Covert tour 2.0. Hit the BB and BB alpha, alpha was good just didn't care for the feel. I only hit the I25 a few times but honestly I think it may have been the best for me, when I tested it I was playing solid and I knew what to expect from the 913 so I stuck with it.

Toss up. SLDR 10.5 set at 10 with Tour AD DI 6x and G30 9, digitally lofted to 9* and 1* open with Kuro Kage TiNi 60x. The Ping might be the most consistent set up I've ever played, while the SLDR produced some of the longest drives of my life.

Started the year with a Ping G25 with Diamana S+ 62 x5ct shaft and liked it a lot.  Mid year I swapped shafts and went with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI6s and LOVE it.
I don't see this driver leaving my bag anytime soon, especially since the G25's shaft tips aren't compatible with the new G30.
