Taylormade Jet Speed

The first thing I've got to say about this driver is that it is Long! A 46"  50 gram shaft combined with Taylormade's Speed pocket Technology means that it produces one of the fastest ball speeds of the drivers on the market today. The only concerning factor in this drivers set up is the slightly longer shaft length, meaning that although it will give you faster ball speeds, it will make it slightly harder to hit the sweetspot as consistently but Taylormade have used this shaft length for years and the tour wins are still coming in thick and fast so if you enjoy Taylormade equipment this is the driver for you.

Yonex E-zone

Yonex for some reason don't spring to mind when looking at drivers, however after testing they are one of the most popular clubs in the shop. Some of the reasoning may be behind the high quality shafts that Yonex produce in their clubs matching the clubhead perfectly. 

These clubs are very forgiving and produce highly competitive numbers in comparison to every other club mentioned on the list. The SD and XP models have particularly impressed us in this respect.

Titleist 913 D2

Titleist has always been a firm contender for driver supremacy on tour. But with there refusal to keep up with the modern trend of bringing out a new club every 6 months makes them stand out in a highly competitive crowd of very good clubs. With them trusting their technology for 2 years without bringing out a new club it better be something special and I'm glad to say that this driver doesn't disappoint. A low back C.O.G increases the forgiveness of the club making the worlds top better player brand accessible to everyone. Also this is one of the most adjustable drivers on the list allowing players to fit the driver to their every need. Covered with an all black paint finish, the middle of the fairway will never look so good!

Callaway X 2 Hot

Last but not least the Callaway X 2 Hot this club has seen great success off the back of a great year for the previous model (X Hot).  The grey and black finish on the head is very different from other manufacturers and so it should be! When Callaway put one of their fastest most forgiving heads with a high quality project X shaft you could imagine the results could be colossal and they were. A long forgiving driver that found its way into a lot of the tour staffs bag such as Nicolas Colsaerts and Gary Woodland.
