The bedrock of GolfWRX.com is the community of passionate and knowledgable golfers in our forums, and we put endless trust in the opinions of our GolfWRX members—the most knowledgeable community of golfers on the internet. No other group of golfers in the world tests golf clubs as frequently or as extensively, nor is armed with such in-depth information about the latest technology.

You can see the full results for the best driver of 2021, as well as additional comments, in the forums.

Best driver of 2021: The top 5

1. Titleist TSi3

Titleist Tsi3 sole

What Titleist says: “For players who create more consistent contact and require more precise control over CG placement. With a new Adjustable CG Track Design for advanced speed-tuned performance.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @biebs333: “TSi3 driver is fantastic, great looking and forgiving; I love it. Tough to beat a Titleist, just a fantastic club all around.”
  • @dwboston: “Used my TSi3 on the course for the first time this weekend. 2 rounds, hit 22/26 fairways with it, and it’s noticeably longer than my 915 D2 (with the same shaft – GD AD BB 6S). It’s a keeper.”
  • @manima1: “Had the TSi3 for about a month now, and I can’t believe how good this head is. This thing should be getting more buzz than it is. Every once in a while, a product comes along that really moves the needle (i.e. Taylormade M series debut), and this is certainly one of those.”

2. Ping G425 Max

Ping G425 Max sole

What Ping says: “G425 MAX elevates the moment of inertia to PING’s highest level in history. Forgiveness comes mainly from a 26-gram tungsten movable weight, made possible by weight savings from advancements in the driver’s dragonfly crown technology. The CG-shifting weight can be set in neutral, draw or fade. A T9S+ forged face increases flexing for adding distance.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @EatDrinkRunLSU: “I was fitted for a PING G425 Max in late January and finally got it in late February. I’ve played 81 holes with it in the last 3 weeks. I’ve hit some of the longest drives I’ve ever hit in 25 years of playing golf over the past 3 weeks.”
  • @Jim123: “The 425 max has made me sell the tsi3 and not think twice. Yea the sound is not the best, but you have to miss the ball completely to hit this thing bad. It is beating the 400max by an easy 15 yards, and I believe it’s even more forgiving.”

3. TaylorMade SIM2

What TaylorMade says: “First we reshaped the driver, then we reconstructed it. Completely rebuilding the driver from the ground up to give you both forgiveness and distance. Go ahead, the tee box is yours. Swing away.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @GooseHook: “Two rounds with the SIM2 this weekend, and I think I can at least say it’s a big improvement over the original…for me. The more lively feel and taller face are pluses, and more importantly, I had ZERO big right misses. The RDX Black has a great feel, but I might have to give my Atmos a run at it to see which one gets the most out of the head. For now at least, it feels like I can swing naturally and not fight my driver for dear life.”
  • @ScottHutch2: “I have been loving my SIM2 driver with Accra TZ5 shaft in it. Has been a great match up for me and given me the ability to hit fades off the tee again.”
  • @benclab: “benclab: “I just got the SIM2, and it’s better to me (then OG SIM). Feels better, a tad more forgiving and still hits bombs. Funny, I was making fun of the colors a few months ago, and here I am rocking one.”

4. Callaway Epic Max LS

Callaway Epic Max LS

What Callaway says: “Introducing the new Epic MAX LS, designed for mid-to-low handicap players who want more speed, neutral ball flight and forgiveness in a lower spin, high MOI package. MAX ball speeds come from a NEW Jailbreak A.I. Speed Frame that works in combination with the A.I. Designed Flash Face. This unique driver head provides enhanced fade bias capabilities, along with Adjustable Perimeter Weighting to fine tune ball flight off the tee.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @Swingblues: ” I don’t need to say the Max LS is pure PHENOMENAL, best driver ever made by Callaway. Period.”
  • @golfboy1: “Guys I have been golfing in Palm Springs, basically golf heaven! Finding the Max LS is a bomb… comes off hot and can shape it!”
  • @third-times-a-charm: “Max LS continues to impress. Again, I haven’t been seeing any positive gains like this from any driver in recent years. 

You can read what other golfers are saying about the Epic Max LS driver in the GolfWRX forums, and see our launch piece here.

5. TaylorMade SIM2 Max

What TaylorMade says: “The reconstructed SIM2 Max delivers high MOI with a heavy 24g tungsten weight positioned on the Inertia Generator. The TPS Front Weight is strategically located on the sole of the club to encourage optimal launch and spin properties, delivering complete performance and max forgiveness.”

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • @Titleist84: “Owned last year’s SIM and this year’s SIM2 Max. Last year’s SIM was slightly longer, but the SIM 2 Max is way more accurate.”

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways.

It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buying and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a set of Mizuno MP-20 copper irons.

From the seller: (@Jaws2525): “Mizuno MP-20 Copper. 3-P. You all know the deal on these. Only 500 sets made worldwide. All original specs, dynamic gold Tour Issue S400, BB&F ferrules, standard blackout z grips and original sticker! #383 out of #500 sets ever made. These are brand new and have been on display since they were released. Never touched a ball. As you’ll see, they have a nice patina as expected from age and some extremely minor handling. Comes with certificate of authenticity and original box (which has some minor wear from storage for 4 years!). It’s time to let these go and for someone else to enjoy these, and possibly play?! Super hard to find in new condition. $2,750 shipped. Serious inquiries only.”
