I'm buying a new driver this year. Looking like I might go with the new Taylormade R1 Driver. It's looking it's going to be an amazing driver.
I really need to go get fitted for a driver from a pro. I'm using a Titleist 910D2 with a stiff shaft and 9.5° loft and I still hit the ball WAY up in the air. I worked with the pro at my club and he said my swing plane looks good, so I want to try something even lower (like 8.5°) with a low-launch shaft.
I haven't seen this thread in a long time.
Yeah that sounds like what you need to do.
I miss golf already. . Only 4 more months till it comes back.
I'm sure you are.
Sucks to be you. I might play Sunday.
Jumping in here as a former everyday 5 handicapper who's played all over including many great top ten courses in the world. Now too busy for golf. Used to be a fader , righty left to right with great short game. I stopped playing years ago at a bad time when the big head drivers came along. If those fvckers were around in my prime I would have been scratch. Big problems with driver back in the day.
Also played with my dads crappy ass hand me down haig ultras for way too long. Then got my fathers ping eye 2s because I'd rather spend money onother things than golf clubs. Still have those ping eye twos

I might be able to play tomorrow. Haha. It's going to hit 60*F here in Michigan. Then snow again on Sunday. I got Snowboarding to tide me over till Spring.
I'm either getting out today or tomorrow. Just found out there's a course not far from my new apartment in Atlanta that has a decent (and cheap) 18 hole course as well as lighted driving ranges. It even has a lighted par 3 course.
Who has two thumbs and just got his new Cobra AMP Cell Driver in the mail today. This guy!

What made you go with that?

I demoed the R1 and AMP Cell last week. Loved the feel of AMP Cell. Plus I've been hitting Cobra drivers for close to 7 years now. This is my 3rd driver from them.
And now the AMP Cell.
Alright thanks. Trying to get some opinions.
I haven't played in forever...really need to get back out there.
Been golfing yet?
Played Sunday. About to tee off in 15.
Grass green down there? Not warm enough to golf here til April
It is starting to green up. It was windy as hell today though. 30-35 MPH. Not much fun. Still shot okay though.
So I demoed a Cobra AMP Cell Pro driver today, 7.5° loft, stiff shaft with a low-mid kick point. Holy crap, it's like God called down to me and said, "Here, my child. The driver you've been yearning for."
I would like to try one of those but I am afraid that I would want it if I did.
I think I am going to play through this year with my current equipment and then get new irons and woods next year.
See, I have a Titleist 910D2 right now, regular shaft, 9.5° loft (my dad's old driver). Before that I had my own TaylorMade Burner, stiff shaft, 9.5° loft. I hit both sky high and it was really leaching distance off of my drives. This Cobra, though, alleviated all of those issues. And I'm usually one to say it's not the equipment, it's you (especially for a guy still getting his bearings for the game), but this was a money club. I'm going to get the course tomorrow with it and see if I still like it. If I do, I'll be purchasing. My game off the tee has been just atrocious for a while now, mainly due to hitting the ball just crazy high. I think even you recommended earlier ITT I try a lower kick-point shaft. Worked wonders for me today.
Equipment definitely matters.
I am still playing my R11. I like it but and will probably stick with it for a while.
I have the AMP Cell driver. But not the pro version. They didn't have it in left handed. Fantastic club. Extremely happy with the purchase. Can't wait for it to get warm out so I cab start getting out on the course.
Taking the Pro out on the course today. We'll see if I still love it as much as I did yesterday.
Gareth Maybin's trick shot video has some crazy stuff in it...

Deserve got nothing to do with it...
