A bit surprised by all the Ping love. To me they are very solid looking drivers, but I didn't see them knocking off TM and Cally. I guess the M3/4 doesn't have the same appeal as the M1/2. Same for rogue/epic.

Well I don't see it on the list, but the TS drivers have been phenomenal for me. Started with TS3 and went to TS2. Distance and ball speed is pretty on par with Rogue but consistency for me is much better. I am striping most drives and averaging about 10 more yards than my previous Epic, which I was kinda wild with.

Voted g400 lst = amazing with my t1100.
Tried the TS series and very good but a tick behind on total control as I hit them higher with same shaft than I'd like. Finally rogue sub zero finally with all tests on all 4 heads for my swing; is best overall. Rogue sz allows for flight control for me and directional consistency akin to forgiveness is what I'm more concerned about as a low cap. I think it's a few yards longer than my 400 lst the way I attack it also. This is all very personal and all with t1100 6.5 shafts so no guesswork. 400fam still wins as a fam but Rogue sz for now

Need to add the Titleist TS2 and TS3 to this list. I am loving the TS3, which kicked my 917 out of the bag. The distance gain has been significant. I'm playing it at 45 inches with some added head weight to offset the shorter shaft length (these are now 45.50 stock).

Second on my list would be the Callaway Rogue. Nice looks and fantastic feel.

Third would be the Cobra F8. Haven't hit the 9.

Results were fine on the TaylorMade and Ping G400 lines, but I don't like the looks of any of them. (Can we be done with the turbulators already?)

I'm really interested in the Tour Edge Exotics EXS driver!  Initial reviews look good, data is very promising, and it is a good looking golf club! But, best of all.......$299.99!

J.B.

Just picked one up and I have never been this happy with a driver. Haven’t paid much attention to TE over the years.
This feels as good and gives me better numbers than anything I have tried.
Solid and very easy to swing.
Give it a try.

I guess since apparently I am a Tour Edge "PLANT", I will just go to the back of the warehouse and hit it! HAHA Carolina Beach, NC isn't that far away from Chicago! How good does this driver look in person? Can you get any other shafts besides the Tensei Blue?

Doesn't it feel good to admit it?😂🤣 Just giving you trouble,  there are too many post hypers out there with motive of driving interest.  Not ultimately an issue but but an annoyance. If youve hit it, give a comparison review please

Mine gets in Wednesday. At that price, why not? Of course, my store credit made it a much easier decision.
