Forum Thread of the Day: “Best value for a used driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rkodavey who is on the hunt for a new driver. With a budget of $200, Rkodavey is looking for a used driver from the last three or four years, and our members have been sharing their advice on where his money should go in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gvogel: “So, so many to choose from. I would start with a Ping G400.”
  • Hertsjoatmon: “There is probably a best value in each price bracket. I found the great big bertha to be good value when I started to take golf more seriously and picked one up for a 100 about 2 years back. Plus as it’s adjustable, it’s easy to pick up extra weights and shafts to experiment with. I recently upgraded to the g400 max a few weeks ago for 200 (new) as it’s generally regarded as one of the most forgiving drivers ever made. I’ve yet to mess with the settings yet but have a heavier weight on order so that I can shorten it an inch.”
  • propredicr: “2016 TM M2. Just went through driver fitting on Trackman. Tried M5, M6, TS3, Epic Flash. M2 same shaft, just as long as M6, slightly longer than M5. Epic was next and disappointingly; the TS3 was a short knocker. Balls speeds on the newer heads were slightly higher, with slower swing speeds compared with M2. Although, distance between the M2 and M6 was negligible. Accuracy was roughly the same across the board. Bad swing=bad ball. Feel is subjective, but, like the feel of the M2, best. Guess I’ll stick with it until the head caves in.”
  • fsusmith: “Cobra LTD Pro with a bimatrix tour prototype shaft.”

    Agree with LTD pro. Had one for a couple years, liked how it pretty much eliminated the left side of the course.
