If you hate or like driver graphics or any driver color other than black, how old are you?

33 hate with a passion.

Ever since the rocket crap came out, I've been turned off TMag.  I liked the "white movement" but they've over done it recently with the 'crass factor'.  Everything they're putting out now lacks any sense of style and sleek design.

58, not a big fan of graphics on the crown of drivers but the R1 is growing on me. I have no issues with colored drivers, white was fine with me but I have not owned one. My only white club is a RBZ hybrid, I also have not owned a TM driver since the r7 Limited.

And I suspect this thread is a thinly-veiled attempt to call me an old fogey.

30.

Not really bothered by graphics. Would i use one ie. new Taylormade lines? i will reserve judgement until i try them. From the picture they look far too busy but there could well be merit to it helping with alignment.

As for colours they dont bother me at all, i hate the look of Ping drivers like the look of Titleist drivers and absolutely love the look of the new AMP cell range.

Do I need to paint my face as well with these new offerings?

I don't like the white but can see how it might be an acceptable paint scheme.  I hope the graphics die a quick death- just so cheap looking. And while its been a few years since I had a tm driver in the bag( there was about a six year run with just tm drivers) these ridiculous decal covered offerings will continue to keep me away. I see no point with so many other offerings...

54 -- I have to be careful how I answer this as my driver does in fact have "graphics" on the crown, but they are certainly far more subtle than the current TM offerings.  I'm not sure what bugs me more; TM's formula 1 type graphics or the lollipops on a stick from Cobra.

I didn't mind the original white heads until I saw a bunch of demo woods and how quickly the black anodized finish wears off the contact surfaces and how filthy the white matte crowns became.  They quickly became a non-starter for me.

As far as the rest of the questions are concerned, I'm not afraid of colour in my golf attire.  Pink, orange, electric blue; if it looks good on, I'll wear it, but then again, I have a mustache and goatee as well.

Your problem is LOFT -- Lack of friggin' talent!

45, definite no to the graphics.

Not too keen on the white, but other colours are or can be good - I remember liking the copper/bronze colour TM used on the heads in the old bubbleshaft days. Titleist dark, metallic gray was another favourite.

Black is always good, matte or glossy. Dark Mizuno Blue is/ was pretty good.

The only exception I will make on something other than solid color is the Adams Launch lab snake skin print.  Thats pretty badass!

I'm 50 and since I have not seen any of the new stuff in person I will only pass my judgement on last years stuff.  Colors don't bother me but I thought Adams made a mistake with silver.  Graphics don't bother me, that being said I have not seen new stuff in person.  It's funny how all the rage against this graphics stuff is happening now, it will take just a few to start raving about better feel, distance and low spin numbers and then people will start saying...what graphics?

I am 30, and it depends. I agree with mikes919 that the toy-ish names bother me more. I don't want to drop a lot of money on a toy, and they make it seem like the OEM doesn't take the product seriously.

On the colors......the Adams silver gray from 2012 really grew on me, I like it now. And I like the 2012 Cobra gray as it looks like something retro from the military. New Callaway Xhot crowns look nice. So I am very open minded.

However if the colors and/or graphics are off-putting the product won't have a chance for me as I know that performance will be very similar to what I already own. Taylormade is a tough sell as I know that they are doing it mainly for marketing on tour.

I can't fault a company for trying things out so that they stand out from the crowd.  I mean, when your puking out merchandise at an alarming rate, you need to differentiate yourself not only from the competition, but from your own products!!

having said that...meh.  I used to paint my drivers when I lived in Bar Harbor, so if something is really ugly but works really well, I'll just alter it.  My favorite was a faux wood grain a friend in NE Harbor did on a Callaway.
