Personally, I believe the shaft is almost as important as the head. I also don’t see club makers or sellers inform buyers enough on this subject. Given this review covers 10 drivers, he gave a nice overview of them. I would’ve liked to have seen maybe a base-line for where his swing speed is, particular shaft he chose in each & why? Also, the degree of loft? These days there’s kick points, weight, & strength of flex that can all make the number one driver on this list perform & feel like number 1 or the worst!

I can't believe the 565 z isn't on your list. I'v hit about every driver you hit. loved the Mizuno And the Ping 400. But ended up buying the Srixon z 565. Just hit it better than the rest. Hands down hit it better than the Epic Drive. Epic wasn't even a club i'd even think about putting in the bag. I can't believe you hit the Srixon and didn't make your list?

halloween Dolbeau

Let's say that budget doesn't matter. But I dare say I wouldn't pay above $500 for a driver. For instance, I checked your review on the PXG and this is definitely not for me. Thanks for your time.

Hi Rick. Awesome video. But one thing I just CAN'T understand: what's the fuss about the name EPIC? English may not be my first language, but being an English teacher I found it very thoughtful of naming a driver EPIC(which describes something of amazing proportion or interest). Simply genius....And from what I see isn't it your FIRST on the list?

I had the ping G driver. I went and tested Epic, Ping 400, M2, 912 d and the Cobra F7. After an hour of testing it came down to the Epic and Cobra F7. I found the Cobra F7 was the easiest to hit with a cheaper price tag. I have played two rounds with the F7. Miss hits were around 230-250 distance and perfect hits around 280-315. I am a bogey golfer, guessing 14 to 16 handicap. Thanks Rick for the great reviews!

Have to agree with a few of the comments on the Epic. It failed to perform compared to my 2016 M1 and 2016 GBB, for not only length but disbursement also. Returned the Epic and got my two trade ins (M1&GBB) back, and am a happy camper again. I did demo the Ping 400 and was really impressed with it's performance for a senior with a swing speed in their to hi 80's. Other golfers during the demo day with Ping, senior level also thought it was the ideal club for slower swing speeds.
Can't go with your best 10 this time Rick..

JoeyC Garnette - 3 years ago
Hey Rick, I need some help. I'm 16 years old and so far have broken 3 Driver shafts. I take care of my equipment. My bag is brand new and is padded, so nothing wears down the shafts. I can hit my 9 iron 150 yards and sometimes further. The 3 shafts I broke were Project X HZRDOUS 6.0 (Stiff) shafts. 2 were 55 grams which were on a Callaway GBB Epic and the one I broke today was a 63 gram which was on a 2017 Taylormade M1 Driver. I don't know if I need extra stiff shafts or if I need to get a different brand of shafts. I though getting a different Driver would help but they're all graphite and so I'm stuck on what I should do. I don't want to keep returning a broken shaft to the pro shop.
JoeyC Garnette
JoeyC Garnette - 3 years ago
Also they weren't broken in a fit of anger. The first time which was with the Epic, the shaft broke in my backswing . Second time, also with the Epic I hit the ball and the head flew off. Third time, with the Taylormade M1, I was on the range at my high school practice and I hit the ball solidly and the head flew off after I made contact with the ball.

I just tested all the new drivers against my TM SLDR driver . Hit my SLDR 270-290 on average, widely dispersed . The two best were the epic and m1.The epic was 290-305 on average, it sprayed around a little . The TM m1 had a much tighter dispersal and I averaged 295-315. The M1 was also $120 cheaper. Needless to say The M1 is now in my bag:)

Did he try the Srixon, I couldn't be bother watch, like his reviews but he goes on a bit, I have the M2, 917 and the 765 and the 765 beats the other two hands down. For me and my swing anyway.

Rick there is a japanese golf brand called XXIO that is starting the flood the NZ and Aus markets its already a top seller in Japan. I got a 3 hybrid for my birthday mid July. I now use it off the tee dont touch my Driver or 3 Wood its the most forgiving club I have ever used and the distance increase I get from it is fantastic. Like I said I wont use my Driver and Wood again until I get a XXIO Driver and Wood. You may disagree and fair enough but I think you should give them a crack and see what you think.

So MINUS looks, sound, and anything else that is not performance based. What THEN is your BEST top 10 drivers?? Thank you and I love your vids :)

Evening rick,sorry to bother you.
Been playing for a season and a bit,got the handicap down to 18 from 25 and my birthdays coming up.
Seen a great set of ping irons on golf bidder that I'm gonna buy,but they're the white dot ones,so there 3 degrees upright, I'm 6 foot 1, and my miss is normally a slight push,do you think the change in lie will make a massive difference?

Oooooweeee!!! I hit the subzero, They almost got the name correct should have been called sub-par based on its performance. That G-400 is a beast, Long off the tee easy to hit a cut or a draw not 50 million weights to move around. The Wilson driver is good to keep in your bag in case a wild pig charges at you from the brush, Other than that I agreed with the list, I am trying to find someone with that Ben Ross type R driver, thats the only one I have not hit.
Luke Malone
Luke Malone - 3 years ago
Alright rick quality video, just an idea, would be great to see past drivers from the last few years such as the aeroburner and r15 compared to the m1/2 to show if there really is an advancement in the technology and how much if there is, maybe even a combined list if slightly older drivers can compete with the new ones, same idea as the golf bidder challenges where it could give golfers not willing to shell out 400 quid on a new driver an insight into the quality you can still get for a much cheaper price point
Jason Alpaugh
Jason Alpaugh - 3 years ago
Until a few months ago, I hadn't played in almost a decade. That being said, I grabbed a Titleist 913 D2 of Ebay for under $100 and have been killing it off the tee in the few rounds I got to play this year. A lot of 300yd+ drives and the club is forgiving as hell, IMO. I'm in no hurry to rush out and grab the latest tech other than a new set of irons and that's only because I'm using a set of 20 year-old Silver Scot 855S irons. Looking to grab a set of Mizuno JPX 900 HM irons here in the next month or so

Excellent review Rick, personality for me the Ping G400 is the best on the market for all levels of golfers, my Epic has GONE, can't wait to try the LS Tec version to see how it performs against my standard driver, love to see your review when it comes out very early in September. Great work Rick.

I picked up a GBB Epic Sub Zero after testing pretty much any big/medium name driver, that was the one that performed the best. Loving it so far, it added 10-20m length and just feels straighter. The sound is growing on me, bit weird compared to my D909 that I didn't want to replace due to not hitting anything else better.

I am a huge fan of this list. I am glad to see someone give the Mizuno some love. When I went shopping I came up with almost this exact list. At first, I thought the Epic was over hyped with a ridiculous name, but when I went and hit them, the Epic was the ticket for me. I got over the name real quick. I am also with you that the Titleist was way over hyped. I think the 915 was a superior driver to the 917. . Keep it up.

The M1 2017 looks like a quality piece compared to last iteration. Last years red and black was cheesy. Looked cheap. This year the fit and finish is superior. Too bad it was given 4th place because of what Rick thinks of the look of the BOTTOM. Weird review. EPIC is over-rated and disperses the ball all over the place....even in Ricks hands.

He hits the epic terrible but Taylor made he hit great but he liked epic because it sounded good/ so your telling me looks and sound overrules performance yeah no im 15 and I don't care what my driver sounds or looks like if I hit it good then it's in the bag and I have a Taylormade m2

bob the builder then clearly go for the previous ping G. I got it and seems I'm annoying everyone on the driving range. Ping has a new engineering process to manage the sound and apparently did a great job with the G400, however they didn't have this for the G model and their test now compares the sound of the G as a "crying baby". You can't find a louder one, I'm going to actually change mine as the sounds bothers me as well.

These aren't your normal ranking. He has always put some weight behind looks and sound. Has to do with player confidence and how it would sell on the rack at a store. If you love the look of a club, you'll want to pick it up and hit it more often. Sound is similar I suppose in once you hit it.

Don't know what more you want from Titleist. Going with their new fitting system is a major change for the Titleist boys. Love my D3. I hope they do opposite of what you recommend. Keep doing what they do best. Make quality products that perform at the highest levels. No funky color schemes, whacked out fitting systems like Mizuno, for the love of all that is good, no dumb ass name

I have played both the Epic and the m1. While I liked the feel of the Epic I just did not have the confidence out of the gate. I hit the M1 and right off I was hitting down my line and with good distant. I did play several tournaments with the Epic and placed in the top 4 several times. First time with M1 second pace. I am down from an index of 13 to 9.7 in the last two months playing the M2 irons and now the M1 driver.

I changed to the Epic this year. I had borrowed a Cobra from the club pro which was a straight hitting club but created too much back spin and lost me 20 yards of distance. Prior to that I had be playing with a Yonex for 20 years.

I also tried out the M2 which for me was consistently a bit longer than the Epic but I just did not feel I was in control of it compared to the Epic.

I have gained 15-20 yards compared to the Yonex (now hitting 260-270 yards), but still struggling a bit with it: going left rather than my normal high slice. All the custom fitting can only help so much!

Oddly I much preferred the M2 3w to the Epic 3W

If the mizuno was ranked that high for adjustability, then why in the world was Titleist so low on the list? The 917 line is as adjustable as it comes. In my opinion 917 is the most complete driver on the market. I just gamed the epic for 6 months and finally had to switch back to the 917 because the adjustability is second to none. Epic goes further but 917 allows me to dial my swing in

ph00ny1
ph00ny1 - 3 years ago
Your exact words were
"Plus the TRASH you get off the shelf isnt even close to what they get"
"Taylor made pays the most tour players and the stuff we get off the rack is CRAP"

Let me rephrase it so that you can understand.
1. TMAG isn't the only one selling non tour products at the stores and every OEM does the exact same (Heads are close but not individually tested for exact tolerances, loft, weight and lie. Also there is the hotmelting to customize the total weight and location of the added weight).
2. There is not a single OEM brand that offers tour shafts in their consumer products. It doesn't make a lick of sense to do so. Most consumers do not swing at or higher speed than tour pros nor do they have the consistency to go with the same shaft and head setup. It's not like these OEMs are giving you "crap" watered down shafts. Shafts they get from shaft manufacturers are same as the ones you buy from the boutique shops exception of less selection and maybe slightly less customization in tipping, length, trim location, etc.

Does any of this matter to average golfers outside of getting fit for proper length, shaft profile, preference for feel, swing weight? Probably not

How much is Taylor made paying you to troll these videos and stick up for them? Oh nothing? Then shut the fuck up!!! Nobody cares what you have to say you clearly dont know what youre talking about. Read all of the other comments no 1 on tour doesnt mean shit. Your user name says it all....

ph00ny1
ph00ny1 - 3 years ago
Who is your clubfitter? Let me ring him up to get some shafts that i need for my fairway wood to match the Tensei PO i have in the driver. There was no argument about money being spent on tour but the argument was what the pros are playing and what is available is universally limited all the way across all OEMs not just TMAG. Tour PROTOTYPES are test shafts which are constantly being tweaked over and over again before it gets released to the public.
For an example, Tensei Pro Orange shaft that i'm currently using on my M1 driver is on its third revision but it has yet to be released to the public. My old callaway Razr X MB which is a tour issue head with H stamp to note that it's a heavier head than the standard and supposedly tested by a PGA tour player at the callaway performance center before getting passed on. Sure you can get Tour Issue/Prototypes somehow but it's not available in most boutique fitters when it shows up on the tour.

Also what's wrong with mass produced shafts? For most consumers, tour issue/prototypes won't help jack squat and off the shelf shafts won't matter that much as long as it fits that player's swing needs (ie getting the proper swingweight, profile, shaft length through fitting matters more for everyday joe.)

As for Ebay - Good luck with getting a genuine tour prototype out of the sea of fakes
Shaun Kelly
Shaun Kelly - 3 years ago
ph00ny1 and btw tour protoype and tour issue are different you can get a prototype on ebay if you want
Shaun Kelly
Shaun Kelly - 3 years ago
ph00ny1 Yea tour issue isnt available.... You can get tour issue from any real clubfitter... Obv you dont know what a true shaft is. It has to do with the way its put in not the make of it. That would fall on Taylor mades builder, moron. Have fun shooting 96 this weekend hack. My point is if they were THE BEST, everyone would use them. Its all about money... I know tour players personally. They are given 500 to 1000 before rounds if they are a qualifier just to play the Taylor driver. Then you have the dig dogs who get millions and bada bing #1 driver.
ph00ny1
ph00ny1 - 3 years ago
So now you're trash talking about shafts which aren't even tmag made? GG. So which OEM lets consumers buy tour prototype shafts with their drivers off the shelf. Not only are tour prototypes not available from OEMs (unless you know someone working in tour vans), you can't even get them from boutique fitters. I'm gonna try to say it in terms you can understand. No OEM will provide consumers with tour protos unless you have access to tour vans. Got it simpleton? Sorry for having an opinion...
Shaun Kelly
Shaun Kelly - 3 years ago
ph00ny1 im not saying their clubs are bad. Im saying Taylor made pays the most tour players and the stuff we get off the rack is crap. Un trued shaftes inconsistent flex bad quality control. You can get those clubs off the rack up to tour speck it will only be 1300 bucks.... Im gonna try to say it in terms you can underatand. Taylor puts out millions a year for to pay players to use their stuff. they get a $2500 driver. You see this and go to the store and buy a piece of made in china crap. This is my point. Got it simpleton? Sorry for having an opinion...
ph00ny1
ph00ny1 - 3 years ago
Shaun Kelly - That's pretty harsh. Have you actually tried their latest offering? M line up is actually a solid line up. I haven't played a taylormade driver in almost 20 years (last one was the burner with the bubble shaft) but the numbers i got on it during the fitting was just too good to pass up. I get that tour heads are individually tested and most of the times hotmelted based on the player's preference but if you really want to, you can get your own head hotmelted.

Szymon Ludwin are you serious? Low price? $550 + shipping is so far overpriced imo. I'm a club fitter at the PGA store so I know my shit

Station 2Station
Station 2Station - 3 years ago
I agree. Low single digit and it's UNCONTROLLABLE. You hit some outliers distance-wise but the rest of the day you're hitting 3 off the tee. M1 for me.

I thought so too, but I got it, and it feels amazing. It doesn't feel hard at all like Rick said it does. It also sounds amazing too. Color is awful tho

I've hit the Epic for a couple of months now - feel/sound is excellent, but a bit muted due to the Jailbreak stiffening - sounded like the Ping G400 to me. Both are excellent.

Andrew Kibbee There is a website called callaway customs and you can change the colour of the club as well as shafts and grips on this site for a low price
