Looking for a new driver for 2012 and am looking for suggestions....   I have been gaming an old Adams BUL for the past couple of years and need to upgrade....  I am a 3 handicap and am not a long hitter but hit it pretty straight...  Looking for more distance and liked hitting the Cobra Long Tom the other day as my swing speed increased from 102 to 107......  Let me know what you guys think....?

Played the Tm RBZ Tp today. Great stick. Did not even have it on my radar, but it was long and straight. Head sets a little open, nice shape. Ball jumps off the face. Swing speed around 105 and was just killing it. Might be my gamer for the year....

sometimes old is new, because the g15 still seems to rocket the ball to me

I have not tried the RBZ yet, I have hit the R11 as what not a huge fan.   Anybody hit the Razr Fit?

My swingspeed is between 100 and 105 typically and our handicaps are similar.  I am getting the i20 with the Ping stock shaft.

Jimb...  Have you hit one yet?  The i20 looks great but the lack of adjustability hurts my impression of it.

Callaway RAZR Hawk Tour is the longest and lowest spinning for me.

I play the RAZR Hawk regular....and it's best for me.  I'm interested to see if the RAZR Fit can kick it out of the bag.  I've hit everything else so far that is out this year....there are a few not yet released...but I'm not betting on anything kicking my RAZR out this year.  The R11s and the RBZ were duds.  I didn't think the G20 was much better than the G15 which I loved - but not more than the RAZR Hawk.  The F11 was close...but not quite there.  The F12 wasn't.  Curious as to how the new Cleveland will be...  I guess the only thing I haven't tried were the Nike VR_S....and I have zero intentions of doing so - not a fan of Nike clubs.

RAZR Fit is the driver of the year hands down! Longer than RHT, not to mention more giving, better looking and much better sound and feel.  The Fit is simply amazing... THE best driver I've ever owned, period!

I've had it for several weeks now and playedit  on course and loved it. Finally got it on Trackman today against R11s TP, RZB Tour TP and RZB TP. Everything but the R11s had to much spin, but R11 couldnt hang with ball speed or dispersion. RBZ Tour felt and sounded bad, RBZ TP felt and sounded good with good ball speed, but high spin killed it for me.

First, look and sound are way better. (no top seem, and a very solid thwack)

Second, for me it is much more forgiving, slightly lower spin, tighter dispersion and about 3mph more ball speed.

For me it's just an overall winner! :yahoo:

If you like the Adams, try the Fast 12. Its a bomb! I'm going to see if I can get the LS model myself but it is a very solid stick.

Thanks...when it comes out, it's going to go H2H against my 10.5* RAZR Hawk....I don't want to buy a new driver....but at the same time, I'm willing to do it if I can improve significantly.
