OK, best driver under $100? Something that's maybe a 3-10 years old but still holds its own fairly well.  Sort of like the Ping Eye 2 of drivers, so to speak?

Adams 9064LS. This things still makes it's way in to my bag and is equally as long as my JPX900 just not as shiny and new.

Asked a few friends and had a number of guys mention the Fly Z. They are around $100 used. Also thinking about a 2014 Big Bertha, which are about the same.

A number of friends also mentioned the 910D as well.

For less than $100, I'd be happy playing a 910D3. If you want a glued hosel driver that performs and comes cheap nowadays, go check out the Bridgestone J40 445.

Nike ignite, can be had cheap and can go toe to toe with anything new. Not adjustable but very forgiving

I like the 905r but more recently I found a Ping G25 in my local used bin for $99.  Tried it out for a couple weeks and really liked it, but not quite as good as the G400.  Took it back and bought another G25 head off a member here.  If you can find one for $100, buy it.

Thats tough to beat.

A while back in the DoND forum the Cobra LTD was selling new for $99.99 until someone called the online dealer and they jacked it to $199.

But used, there are a lot of good options.

I think getting advice from guys who are sitting at the computer in their underwear while taking a break from porn is a very solid way to choose clubs. - bluedot

My vote would be for the original Big Bertha Alpha.  Long, low spin, relatively forgiving, and feels great.

This one here is a great deal:

905r, still a baller of a driver. You will still have $50 left over to buy a couple of dozen beers. V2 rapture is another to consider.
