Chrome Speed. Too bad they're not around anymore. Just fine around the greens as well.

Wilson Jack. A 2-pc BOMBER !  Gone a long time ago. Heard they had some branding issues with the GBear.
   Hmmmm  -  was wondering if Maxfli is made at the same plant as Callaway. Maybe the Maxfli U/Fli Speed would be similar. Weird Callaway never truely has the Chrome Speed in stores.

Condor or whatever they were called.  Totally illegal but fun to hit nonetheless.

TP5X

510 yard par 5 yesterday. Into the wind from the right. Smoked driver expecting to have 210 into the green I couldn't find my ball. The wife says "up there!" I had 174 yards into the hole. We won't talk about what happened afterwards but that's a 335 yard poke into wind. I'm sold

I'm not sure I ever hit any particularly long drives with that one but it may have had the most spin off a full wedge shot of any ball I've ever used. For a while I had a brand-new set of the original Mack Daddy wedges and was using the Tour iX. My goodness, that was a spinny combination!
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Nike One Tour D for me.  I remember getting tee balls down to places regularly that I don't come near very often anymore, even though my overall game has improved significantly.

Hit the 2017 XV today down (15 mph tail wind) to a slightly uphill fairway 313 yards.  My normal "great" drive would be about 280 so not sure if the tail wind gave me the extra 33 yards but since it was uphill as well I think the XV is just stupid long.

I hit around 100 driver ss not a big hitter. But was in a best ball a few weeks back and was hitting the Bridgestone RX long for me. I dont know the exact distance but it was going over my normal good 250 shot some quite a bit for me. In a best ball you can swing for the fences as y'all know though...lol

I don't know the exact number, but I do know it was with the 2014-15 B330. Those 14-15 models of the B330 and the S are just fantastic golf balls.

How did you end up getting along with the K-sigs your tried out distance wise?

Pro-v1x have always been a long ball for me in addition to the hex chrome plus...but the Kirkland's this year have set personal bests for me on a number of holes on my my home course. Starting to get enough reps in to see them compare well to the other two I mentioned in terms of distance..but, I like to see a large number of hits for the data to reveal any real tendency.

RZN Blacks for me. Seemed to carry a lot further than anything else. We had a really bad drought last summer too and fairways were basically playing like concrete. So I hit a lot of tee shots into places I had never been before. Longest one was 355

Maxfli SoftFli. Wife & kids gifted me 2 doz last summer and I still have a few sleeves left. Bombed one almost 280, downhill, with the wind at my back. For me, that's gigantic.

Up until recently, my longest documented drive was 326 yards, using a Pro V1. Bounced down a cart path on a par 5.

But.... This this year, after a driver change (SZ), I have a legit 307 yards, middle of the fairway drive.  250 to top of the hill, then down a slope. Cleared the hill by about 15 yards, and then got a great roll. All that, with a $1.25 KSig.

B 330-S for me.  Hit one 343 according to Game Golf on a dog leg par 4 here in Salt Lake City last year.  Keep in mind I'm at over 4,000 feet above sea level, though.  I'd estimate you get an additional 10-15% at this altitude versus the same shot at sea level.
