Hey guys and gals, nice forum you have here! Here's my first post.
I currently have the '09 Burner which I really like. Love the driver, the thing I'm figuring out is that the shaft is possibly more important, at least as equally important, as the head.
I've read reviews and in conclusion it seems as though my '09 Burner is said to be a low spin driver - which is exactly what I need since I swing pretty fast, hit the ball high, and my two biggest problems are of course the slice and secondly ballooning the ball - skyballs really reduce distance don't they?
With that being said, I really like the looks of the new burner superfast. At address it looks great. However, the reviews and specs I'm reading say it's a high launch, high spin driver. Wouldn't that combo be terrible for me?
I don't really like the super long, lightweight shafts which is why I've already reshafted my '09 once. I also read the '09 combined the technologies of the '07 burner and the tour burner.
In summary, sounds to me like regardless of how great I think the superfast looks, a high spin, high launch head wouldn't be good for me - especially if it's true the '09 is a low spin head.
Can anyone confirm or deny this? I'm trying to find THAT driver that I just love. I've asked questions similar to this in another forum, because I think your driver should be a weapon, not a liability. I think the '09 burner may be the head I need... but then here comes the superfast... the machspeed... the ft-iz... ahhhhh.
And to close my already lengthy, first post? Do you guys have THAT driver that it's hard to get you to replace, or do you drop the cash for a new one every year? Also, how particular are you about your clubs? For example, last year I placed my bag too close behind me and struck my driver on the downswing of an iron shot. It's fine, but a slight ding/scratch where the crown meets the bottom kind of bothers me... how silly would I be to buy a new, identical driver?
