best driver builds......
« on: February 22, 2018, 11:14:09 PM »
was just getting a  BILL  from my builder, hes da man, but my god  does he charge....
 anyway hes redoing 4 drivers for me for march and we got thinking  about the best evers...GOATs as they are called I believe????????

so I thought what are my GOATS of all the beasts ive had made ?

well heres what I came up with.......
some are still in play . some are long gone.

jbeam 435/diamana stinger  70x  9.5* 326  45 inch  d4
epon 101 9.5*/ roddio labo tataki 75xs  323 x 45 x d2
prgr egg7  7*/ diamana aliislei 83 x  44.25 inch  x 330 x d3
syard  t-.388  9*/  7D
ryoma d1 10* /  GDp9003x  44.5 inch  330 gram x d5
jbeam 425 tour  10*/ crazy 50,  7.7xs  320  x 45 x d2
callaway erc 3  9.5* / diamana   original blue 73s 320 x 45 /d2
taylor made tp09 burner / bimatrix 100x,   44 x farrrrrrrrrrrkennnnnnnnnn redicalas heavy!  but gunbarrle straight!!
epon 101  9.5*/ quadra FEX  65s   45 x 315 x d1

 that's my main kahoona

still the reigning king  from 2009ish

Yamaha V201 10 with Roddio WA-6BA S
Ryoma D-1 Maxima Type-V 9.5 with NS Pro Formula Regio 55 S (shaft wasn't perfect but that head was long)
 
But the undisputed King is the Callaway Epic Sub Zero 9 with Mitsubishi Chemicals Tensei CK Pro Orange 60 S

Still have most f these...some f the callaway drivers did ok for me...top 2 of all time were 15x series...head and shoulders above the rest...

 here we go il lad a cpl of categories..
forgiving drivers:
not really my thing but these stand out form top of my  head.. thought  harder but cant really get anything that is close to these two.


onoff 46d   hyper effect.......................... no1 by a country mile.
never missed with this ,not even once.
light breezt easy big round/elongated.  this thing was the most forging driver ive ever owned.

but for distance..........

taylor made tp  09. with anything in it, shaft didnt seem to matter. tight, mid  distance small triangle shape  flat face.  still got it.

my one is the vII, shafted with a diamana stinger , take it out  when I play the tips  on long jack courses.  I DONT EVER take it out on pete dye tracks.  its a lower  launcher so I can tee it very high and try hit big draws,  its quite anti left so the  chance of snap hooking it is remote.
thing hits and runs. absolutel bomber.  NOT my everyday  driver.

I just picked up a Masters Astro Tour v460 for next to nothing.  It's a completely black head with a black face and sole and I'm guessing it's the 1st generation?  Anyone have any idea if it is any good?  It is a very compact head with a deep face.
