Its gotta be the Nike SQ "NextTi" Drivers, right?  Those were being played in PGA Events (Lucas Glover, among others) in 2014-15.  I don't think any other driver can make that claim (its from 2006 I think).

Ping Rapture. Was in the bag for 10+ years. Great driver, with even better sound and feel.


Awesome driver, couldn't beat that one. The feel and distance was superb

Lol, here here.

Especially mated to the Diamana shaft; great feel and accuracy.

Funny enough, I finally retired my 10.5* and 9* for the Epic Sub Zero ; which I believe is a break through driver.

Cleveland Launcher 460. I have one in my Florida bag that I purchased for $25 at Play it again sports.
It is as long and accurate as the Ping G LS TEC  I use at home in CT.

I do not play one, as I prefer the smaller head of the M1 430 and 440, but I believe the 2016 M2 is the best driver Taylormade has ever made. The ball speeds are higher than any driver I've ever tested and it's massively forgiving.

Also, don't sleep on the SuperDeep. Just as high a ball speeds as anything outside of original M2 and Epic.
