I got to a couple of golf shops last week and got to demo several drivers.
I just hit into the nets so I really didnt get to see ballflight any but really got a feel for some nice sticks.

I tried out the R7 460, R5, Ping G5 and G2, and the Launcher 460.

I didnt really care for the TMs. I thought the R7 sounded kinda dead. The G2 and G5 felt very much like the same club with a different look. The G2 had a NV-65 in it which I liked. Both the Tms and Pings seemed to have closed heads at address which I do not like.

Then I got to the Launcher 460, last years model with a stiff Launcher Gold shaft. This blew all the others away IMHO! The feel and sound of this beauty was amazing. I couldnt imagine that the 06 could be even better feeling.

Both stores had a used in stock but one had the shaft cut down and the other had a R flex. So e-bay here I come! I just wish I had the patience to wait for the 06's to drop in price a little and pick up a used one but people dont seem to want to part with them.

I wish someone could convince my wife to let me have atleast a $300 driver allowance. She thinks I spend to much damn money on this stupid game. I didnt even demo the Exotics just because I didnt want to get stuck on it.

I currently hit a cheap Mega Bear 450 driver with 10* loft. I hit this pretty high. I would like to drop down some but would an 8.5* Launcher be too big of a step. I have heard that the launchers hit pretty high, yes?
