Mark Crossfield says:

What would be your number one driver of all time?

Roger Mick Collison says:

In Canada the Cobra LS $699.99 Ping LST $849.99. The Ping was 8 yards shorter on carry and not all that forgiving. I bought the Cobra and love it. The Callaway Paradym TD was close to the Cobra performance with great dispersion,but that was with a $400. Ventus Blue Velecore shaft.$1200. total. LOL I bought the Cobra with stock Hazrdus Smoke RDX Blue 6.0 .

Hunter says:

love how people slam on Wilson simply due to the brand name rather than recognizing the performance and quality of the clubs. all i heard was "the wilson, being the cheapest of the bunch, performed equally well to the other options at $150 less, but its still $100 too expensive, because the name is Wilson, and therefore trash, regardless of performing as well as the big names"

Bigger minds says:

As you said, practice, practice, practice is 1000% more important than any brand or material.

Dick Nastee says:

Why not XXIO

Mary McKenna says:

For me, as a slow swing speed player, the golf shaft trumps the golf head. It would be very interesting to see a test of the same club head with different golf shafts for different swing speeds. Senior women are twenty miles per hour slower than senior men on average. PS My current favorite driver is a 44" Cobra F-Max Superlite with their Superlite 40 women's flex shaft. 🙂

Barry Hamilton says:

Great content…

freegibran says:

The value holding proposition seems like a Rolex conversation. When I’m ready to purchase a new drive, then that’s what I’ll do. What I can sell the old one for doesn’t matter, after I’ve whacked the crap out of it.

JDOG says:

ugh i think the paradym is the ugliest driver i have ever seen lol it makes me not even consider it even if it is a good driver

Remo Evans says:

The Wilson will be worth a fraction of the new price and the other brands will be worth slightly more. $600 for a driver that will be worth $200 after the first round? No thanks.

Simon G Green says:

Just got the paradym after having an M2 for a while now, just a beautiful driver and sounds amazing

Dazz says:

The best golf driver is the cheapest of course. Drivers are getting pathetic, each and every year they just use CAD software to add an extra new weighted slider or two. Drivers haven't changed for years the best drivers are in fact the gizmo-less ones without silly new shapes and weighted sliders for fake draws and fades. The cost of new drivers are crazy prices. I have never paid more than £200 for a new driver. The main aspect is the shaft stiffness what suits your own personal swing speed. The less marketing gizmos and shapes the better.

Barton King says:

great video . I have hit the Titleist and Callaway and Srixon and Mizuno and TM. The ones I liked the best were the Titleist and Callaway. I just have to decide now. They are so similar but I love love the titleist looks, so old school and beautiful.

Jay Chu says:

Ping G430 max is the most stable and straightest driver ever. Who cares about that tiny extra ball speed and distance if you’re off in the trees

Tops Bottom says:

Nice jaguar.

Bob Saggit says:

It’s nice to hear somebody speak about some of of the brands selling clubs off marketing. The performance really only jumps every 4-5 years imo. The year to year marketing from TaylorMade drives me nuts, but I’ve see a bunch of stealth 2.0’s in bags so far haha.

adam price says:

The way the Cobra sits behind the ball at setup is horrendous!!! It just wobbles around everywhere!! Lost all faith in Utube vids..

bwillzer says:

WELP, hes g**.

Matthew says:

I think sound is irrelevant, but clubs now days are painfully expensive so be sure to get what suits you the best. I like Taylor made carbon fiber woods, Cleveland wedges but I like Titleist irons & putters.

Anthony Marks says:

Duuuude- love your reviews


I notice at address on the close ups of you hitting the Driver that the leading edge / face is almost angling into the ground with the back of the the club slightly raised off the floor at address. Is that on purpose or is an optical illusion from the camera angle.?

mystical being89 says:

the ping 430 is by far the best driver out of these

mystical being89 says:

if its not ping 430 someone got paid off

Bruce Seaman says:


Seve Sellors says:

Great video Mark well presented and I think that you made a very valid point on trade in price and purchase price. Wilson make great clubs and offer superb value and compete with the big brands. To be fair Cleveland and Cobra also offer great value. So on price a bag of clubs only Wilson and Cleveland come in for around £1700-£1800. ( Callaway X series £1100) But and here’s the but yes they will drop in price but you have saved a fortune when purchasing . My Titleist T300 irons and TSI woods are worth £900 on trade in but cost £2700 twelve months ago so premium clubs still cost you. The big brands now come out at £2200-£2800 for a full bag minus putter!
I change every couple years only because like cars the longer you keep them the more you lose. Now I’m retired I spend my money on my hobby golf. Not for everybody I know. I’ve always loved Wilson good products at sensible prices and slightly left field it’s great to out perform your mates and you say Wilson, seriously yes seriously!
