Title: Officially no driver so ...FW driver , mini driver ?
Post by: stefbase on March 10, 2019, 04:55:22 PM
Hello

After a great fitting and test day , I know that drivers are not made for me ... but letís go back few hours ago .
Iím an average player, hcp 16 and I never made it to play properly a driver, so I never played one .
Since I took many lessons the last months and since my game really improve, i decided it was time to really give it a try .
After buying some beauties , Iím ending up with 3 drivers
Ryoma + crazy proto : nice but nothing for me, the shaft is not mine
A-Grind + quadra fex : great and easy
New ryoma + beyond power : stupidly easy to hit .

But there is 2 problems
- iím not confident enough with driver
- on the best shots , iím getting 10-15 meters more than my trustful ryoma f5 .

So itís not worth it to risk problem just to get 15 m .

I went today for a special test and fitting and the result is easy , my driving swing speed is not powerful enough compare to my wood speed to get a good difference.

My question is easy , what would be the solution ?
- 2 wood : had one and it was too difficult
- mini driver ?
- fairway driver ?

Give me your opinion

Thanks

Stephane

Mini driver all the way

I find that the larger headed Drivers be come unbalanced for me so I have the smaller Drivers,

Driver length of 44" or less perhaps? Ricky Fowler hits it long at this kinda length.
