Looks like the Titleist 905r is in the lead with the TM R510TP and Titleist 910 in 2nd.

07 Burner TP.  Would be really curious as to how its CG compares to the M2 and other modern drivers.  I have gone as far as emailing the other site and offered to send them one to test the CG.  The 910 feels amazing but didn't quite have the pop of the Burner TP, for me at least.

For people old to the game it's hard to beat too. Overall it's probably the best driver I've used in over 50 golfing years. Maybe not the longest, but it does make fairways hard to miss.

Been said here already, and I've said it before, but the Titleist 910 is it. My D2 with the 'ahina just works. Plain and simple.

I'm partial to the F12 LS, had it for 4 years.

I feel like the one that has truly stood the test of time is the 905 R though. That's the one driver that I still in play amongst players who are very particular with their equipment.

Taylor Made R580XD TP/Tour & Tourstage Z350. To me the R580XD TP deserves holy grail status. Especially for us lefties.

Still game an R580XD TP today with a Purple Ice 85 shaft. Just really consistent and as long as anything else
I currently play at times. (R15, Vapor Flex, SuperDeep)

I'm going way back with the Callaway Big Bertha Warbird. Would probably still be using it if I didn't lose it. I used to crush that thing. I still bag the 3w, and it holds up just as well to any modern 3w I have tried. Like a comfortable old pair of blue jeans.
So there is really only here and now
