The 2018 Gear Guide

Getting off the tee and deep down the middle of the fairway is the theme this year for the game’s best driver technology. Check out the driver options below to see which one fits your game the best and add some straight distance to your game this year!

Callaway Rogue SubZero

[easyazon_infoblock align=”none” cart=”y” identifier=”B078HYXXM4″ locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”coloradoavidg-20″]

Appeal: ★★★★

Drool factor: Better players will love distance, higher handicappers the forgiveness.

Why: Its max size means max sweetspot, and “jailbreak” titanium bars behind the face are an ejection seat for tee shots.

TaylorMade M3 (440cc)

[easyazon_infoblock align=”none” cart=”y” identifier=”B078TZ1WMC” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”coloradoavidg-20″]

Appeal: ★★★

Drool factor: New Twist Face technology in face gives center-of-face performance on mis-hits. Gear heads will love to fiddle with its 13,000 fitting options.

Why: TaylorMade continues to tinker with famed M-line of woods that you see so much on the pro tours.

Cobra F8

[easyazon_infoblock align=”none” cart=”y” identifier=”B077GY3MNQ” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”coloradoavidg-20″]

Appeal: ★★★★

Drool factor: Techies love its milled face inserts for precision, and also for its high and long tee shots.

Why: More traditional head shape and traditional “crunch” sound will appeal to – you guessed it – traditionalists.

Ping G400 SFT

ping g400 sft driver

Appeal: ★★★

Drool factor: Anti-slice interior weighting turns a big miss into another fairway hit.

Why: You’re ready to get serious about the game. You want to love golf, but you need help. This is a high-tech driver for the aspiring newbie.

Cleveland Launcher HB

[easyazon_infoblock align=”none” cart=”y” identifier=”B074P74PRQ” locale=”US” nw=”y” tag=”coloradoavidg-20″]

Appeal: ★★

Drool factor: For many, similar performance to other “high-tech” clubs but at less cost.

Why: Old School “grab-and-hit” club—nothing to adjust on the head. Back-weighting means larger sweetspot, higher launch, less spin and more distance.

Knuth Golf High Heat 257+

Knuth Golf’s High Heat 257+ Driver, Fairway Metal and Hybrid.

Appeal: ★★★★

Drool factor: Conforms to latest “time-on-face” standards, so entire face brings “3-trampoline technology” to your tee shots.

Why: You don’t care about brands, you care about results. Here’s a driver that yields big-time results in eye-catching shape.
