Worth pickign up?

They are both still good drivers, few yards shorter than todays, you would be best going for the j if you can afford it.

Get the J. The D is a TON shorter than the J, and from my experience, the J is just about as long as the 983K.

Most of drivers though is the shaft. If the shaft isn't right, you can't blame the clubhead. I've been using the same (type) Graffalloy X-flex since my Biggest Big Bertha days back in the 90's. I have experimented with other shafts, and ALWAYS come back to that Graffalloy.

So, I had the J with my shaft, then I Demo'd a 983K with my shaft. The K, when both shots were pured, was just about 5 yards longer. Off-center, I didn't notice ANY difference in length, though the K was a bit more accurate. At the time, the K's were brand new and 5 yards just did not justify the $$$.

3 months later I found the K with my shaft used for, I think, $175 or so. Picked it up, and been using it since.

I loved the J though, and for cheap, it's a good club.

The 975j is still an awesome driver. I had one, and wish I had it back.

I need a review on the E....it seems everyone loves the K but the E has the deeper face and gives less spin for high ball hitters.
