Summary: I got a brand new driver head cover to accompany my barely used D3 driver from Titliest at a steal of a price. The club looked like it had never been used and the club face and mirrored surface on the bottom of the club were completely unmarred. It hits 30 yards longer than my old Titleist driver and I love it.
Summary: I replaced a 909D2 which has a VooDo shaft with this 909D3 and got more consistent accuracy and distance. I credit the Diamana Blue 65 shaft with the improvement and the 909D head with less spin. This club allow me to hit my favorite shot more consistently...a slight draw. Both shafts were stiff flex produced for Titleist.
Summary: I bought this head and a shaft sepately. My favorite driver ever was the 905R, but after some swing changes it was no longer fitted for my swing so I bought this head and a Proforce V2 shaft. Love the combination and distance, but of course at least half of that is the shaft. All modern drivers are limited on COR or distance and are right at the very limit. Weighting and head shapes help in creating the proper launch angle and spin for you, along with the shaft.
Summary: Titleist produced a very forgiving yet good feeling driver. Ball launches from the face without balooning. Ball flight can be controlled without too much movement (left or right). Head feels stable throughout impact. Not the longest driver ever, but definitely not the shortest either. Above average length. Overall, this driver rated very highly.
Summary: Been waiting on this club a long time. It does not disappoint. It's not the longest driver by any means, however it's deadly accurate and I can work the ball high, low, left or right. It's a marvel in engineering. Glad I waited..
Summary: I paid $180 including shipping for it. There is a brand new 909D2 in our local GolfGalaxy for only $150. But I paid more for the used 909D3 because of the Project X 7C3 shaft. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area so I don't have a chance to test it on the course yet. But I did try it in GolfGalaxy by hitting into the simulator. The feel of the club is unreal. And I was driving the ball at least 15 yards longer than my old 983K.
Summary: I still do not feel comfortable swinging the larger 460cc drivers on the market. So the 909D3 fits my preference perfectly. I also purchased this club because of the Diamana Blue 65 shaft. It's a stiff shaft, but I find I hit further than the regular shaft I was using in a Limited Taylormade R7. The shaft feels a little stiffer, but not significantly so for my swing speed which is 95 to 100 mph. I play often, 101 times is 2010.
Summary: As a Titleist enthusiast, I have purchased every new driver released since the original 975D, and they just keep getting better. I never thought they would top the 905R, and in a way they equalled it (in very different ways) with the 907D2, but the 909 series combines all of their R&D in one package. First and foremost, the feel and sound of the 909 is at a level I never expected to experience in a metalwood. An oxymoron, soft-explosive, might best describe this.
