Do you think you could play a driver with no crown? Why or why not?

Could I play it? Sure, why not.

Would I game it? Seeeeriously doubt it. Not what I want to look at.
Its funny, it will kind of show the more mental from the less here.

The thread title makes me think of the Cleveland Hi-Bore. I just couldn't get used to looking down at it.

Hard to imagine what that would even look like. Something like the Hi-bore?

I'm the same as Dan. I could physically game it, yes. Would I? Not likely.

Absolutely... and I am nowhere near the worst of the bunch.

The Hibore never bothered me, so I don't know if the look would bother me all that much. That said, it would probably need to significantly outperform everything else on the market.

You mean like cutting the top off?



I'd give it a swing, but it would feel awkward.

Going with the trying to teach an old dog new tricks thing here. I could but I wouldn't. Too much of a visual adjustment after hitting a driver with a crown for over 35 years.

I would have to see exactly what it looks like. I imagine something more with an open skeleton frame on the top. I could game it not sure if I would though. I also think the lack of a crown would have a great negative effect on aerodynamics.

Perhaps something like the Hammer-X? I couldn't play this even if it did give me 50 yards more. (Well, maybe, if I believed it).

Kinda like asking if I would date an ugly chick? Would I, maybe but if there are other options that are as good in the sack and better looking than it seems there would be no reason to.

I think I could give it a run. Sound would be the thing that puts me off not the look
