Summary: Picked this up in 2006 at a Play-it-Again sports center for $40 with the Headcover in almost new shape. I used this driver with the 44" Stock True Temper EI-70 Stiff Shaft from 2006-2013 and results were good, but not great as the Average drive in the 310 range with a slight draw but ball flight was WAY too high for me, I swing very fast.
Summary: This driver, although an older model, has plenty of 'pop'. It has a smaller head compared to todays line of drivers, but delivers a quality impact that tends to be pretty forgiving. Upon impact it doesn't feel or sound like hitting a tin can. I am far from a scratch golfer, usually 90's, I believe it was Fred Couples who said Inside 100 yards all golfers are on an even playing field.
Summary: After playing Taylormade products (Burner 2.0, Burner 2.0 TP, R11s) for the last few years with some success I decided to dump them all in favor for some old school Titleist products. I hit the Taylormades well enough although I did struggle at times to square the larger head at impact. I was averaging around 275 yards with the white heads so that was acceptable. The big turn off was the sound and feel of the clubs. Way too loud and tinny... obnoxiously so.
Summary: I like older clubs for some odd reason ( maybe causenow I'm old and they are my era)and am using Ping Zing 2s. Love'em. So after buying the matchy matchy Ping laminate drivers and using them a while,I needed more distance so I tried a snake eyes 400cc driver. Awful! Sprayed drives everywhere but in the fairway.Next went with a Ping ISI Ti, and had a real hard time controlling it.Decided to try Taylormade and got the 2009 Burner.
Summary: I can't honestly say that I've had any good result from this 9.5 deg. driver. Generally, I play smaller head drivers, so I picked this up on the cheap. I should have saved that $20 bucks. The head is in fine shape but the face (no cracks) is absolutely dead. I've reshafted numerous times with various mid-line shafts (Fujikura Motore 65 S, Graphalloy ProLaunch Red S, UST Proforce V2 65 S) and I barely broke 200 yds.
Summary: Great product. Still a 315 yard club in the rite hands. My son sold his clubs when he enlisted in the Army. He deceided to re-kindle his State playoff successes from highschool with the exact same clubs he had used 6 years earlier when he asked me to buy this one for him. I played a round with him on Father's Day and saw the confidence he always had almost like never missing a beat from the years past.
Sperbly Engineered Driver, Tremendous Feel - IT WORKS!!!
8 May 2012
Summary: Having become disillusioned with modern drivers and in particular the ridiculous size they have grown to, I decided to look out for a smaller headed club. I have a Cobra 3 wood which is magnificent 230+yards every time and it can be worked either way. It has a small Head and I have no issues with confidence due to the smaller size. So looked at Cobra and Titleist (same manufacturer) and chanced across a 975J.VS on Ebay for only £20 in superb condition.
Summary: I had no real expectations on the quality of this club when I bid on it. Just wanted to use during the winter months until the new equipment was being launched. To my surprise, the club came in excellent condition, it's older technology but the club performs well. I like the fell of the ball coming off the club. The shaft ids stiff and you really need bring a full with speed to get the best hits.
