For all those that have used all 3, 905R, 909D2 and 910D2, can you compare these 3 drivers in terms of distance, accuracy and forgiveness given the properly fitted shaft and head.

Is the 905R really antiquated compared to the 909D2 and 910D2?  Thanks.

I had both a 905r and the 910d2 at the same time and play several rounds comparing the two.  The 905 had a diamana redboard and the 910d2 I was fitted for the ilima. I compared them at the country club that I always play, so I have a pretty good idea where I normally hit the ball. I found that they were always within a few yards of each other. I did settled on the 910d2 purely because of it's adjustability.  If it were not for that fact I would be playing the 905 and still have 400 dollars in my pocket. I am not saying the club is not worth the money. I am just saying I did not experience a hugh difference between the two.

Heads are pretty much maxed out, only real gimmick is adjustability. 905R has always been considered a very good head but a little high spin.

905R is a great club.  Have hit my retail version and compared with the new drivers and tour issue drivers and I CAN NOT knock it out of the bag.  There's one driver perfect for everyone and the 905R is mine.

Man I love seeing these kinds of posts. It should really put in perspective the amount of useless spending we do just to have a cooler headcover and something to talk about on the first tee. I have tried the 910 on a simulator at the local shop. Brought my 905R for comparison. They were both within 2 yards of each other at all times, either the 905 or 910 was ahead but not by much. Other than the shafts, they played identical.  Still liked the feel of the 905 better, seemed like when I hit it right, it was effortless. Still have yet to find anything to knock out the 905R, and don't believe I will.

It appears the 905R is as good as it gets especially when fitted properly.

I loved my 905R and I had been playing it since it came out.  Last year I switched out the V2 76 for an Avixcore Tour black 79 in it.  Loved the feel versus the V2, but launched a little higher than I liked.  I should have went for the red or green series.

Anyways, against my better judgement, I recently switched to a 909D2 with a Diamana Kai'li.  I have had good success and good numbers with the Diamana blueboard in the past, so I thought I would give it a try.  I picked it up at a great price, about the same I would have spent on reshafting the 905R with a Diamana and a whole lot less than what a 910 would have run me.  Now I want to compare the 909D2 to the 910 and see how they compare.  I know what numbers I was getting with the 905R so we will see what the results are.  I still think it is going to hard to beat the 905R with the V2 76, although the 909D2 and 910 may spin a little less.  The bore thru hosel of the 905R is great, but it is a pain in the you know what for changing shafts.

I have the 8.5 905R with a Motore F1 Shaft that I tend use on shorter tighter courses until I get the handle on my new driver 910D3. Number wise I dont know the differnces I just know im more confident with the 905R being that ive had it for a few years and just switch up the shaft accordingly. But in all honesty now adays any head is as good as the next with the proper shaft..

905r great club, I've been gaming it for a while (76g V2) and tried loads of newer drivers. Distance wise there is no real difference with the newer sticks. The only reason I'll change is for a bit more forgiveness

I've used all three and the 907 as well and the 910 seems to be the longest of the drivers mentioned and there's no reason not to have the adjustability offered on the new 910's. And when I say the longest it's by 5-15yards. The 905R is also a higher spinning...

Having now played my 910D3 in and as a previous 905R fan, for me, I would suggest that there's little or no differnce on well hit shots distance wise.

However I would suggest that the 910 wins hands down for me on both accuracy and distance withanything hit towards the toe. It's an easier club to hit than the R, no question in my mind.

Guilty as charged as a previous 905R user (had a Tour issed Diamana Blueboard 73x and retail Diamana Blueboard 73x), various 909D2/D3 and 910D2/D3.  My current gamer is an 8.5 910D3 w/ the Ahina stiff.  Also used the 907D2 w/ the VS Proto X flex shaft.  I did not find the 905R to be very long off the tee and the 907D2 was the shortest of the bunch.  For some reason the 905R did not fit my swing and I tried all kinds of shafts from the V2's to the topline Diamana Blueboards.  The 909D2 was a little on the shorter side for me as well-too much spin.  The longest were the D3's.  IMO, no difference in distance between the 909D3 & 910D3 but I love the fact that my 910D3 can be opened to 1.5* which is where it's at right now.  Out of the 4 the 910D series is the most forgiving.  Titleist has a real winner with the new 910's.  IMO, this is the best driver Titleist has ever put out.  I love hitting this thing.  The feel is superb, confidence inspiring at address and just plain launches the ball.  I've tried most of the new drivers this year on a launch monitor and the 910D3 and R11 gave me the highest ball speeds.  Ironically, the Nike VR Tour from last year gave me 2mph more ball speeds than the other two.

Played the 905T w/ a V2 shaft for a number of years, even following the release of  the "R", which for me spun too much and sounded horrible at impact.  Didn't take the 905T out of the bag until the release of the 909 D2, which I played w/ the Diamana [and later reshafted w/ another V2] and found it to be a very well behaved driver, that offered a bit more forgiveness, but still fought the "spin numbers" a bit.  Picked up the 910 D2 w/ a Kai'li... after a lengthy fitting session... and couldn't be happier.  The ability to fine tune face angle, loft and lie (independently) seems to allow one to dial-in the optimal launch conditions for virtually any repeatable swing.

The short and sweet of it..... the 910 is well worth a serious look, even for the die-hard 905 fan.  JMT

IMO the 905R was the driver that signaled the beginning of the end. Drivers got more forgiving, but if you are a reasonably good ball striker there's really no reason to need anything else after the 905. Hence, the end of driver improvement. I've still only hit 2-3 drivers into the monitor longer than the 905, and that's after 2-3 years and probably 30+ drivers demo'd

i played the 905R for a LONG TIME....up until i finally made the change to the 910D3.

I still think the 905 looks better, but the feel of the 910 is undeniable.  It just feels like it has more pop and it's easier to control.  Also, the D3 spins it perfectly for me, so it looks like I'll have this for a while.

maybe 5-8 yards more distance...but MUCH MORE confidence with the driver!
