Top 5 Golf Drivers 2013, is Callaway FT Optiforce Driver to lead the race for the longest ever?

Is the new Callaway FT Optiforce Driver the longest ever? Based on our own research and looking at several independent websites we were confident that this year’s longest “commercial” driver out there was the Callaway X Hot Driver. With that being said, it appears that top golf manufacturers are reaching the end of the road when building the longest driver ever. After all, the governing body of our sport (USGA) has set very specific standards limiting face thickness, overall volume and many other rules with one exception… Aerodynamics. A mid-summer “surprising” entry may shake things up….  Monday, July 1st we will bring detailed information on the newest weapon coming out of Carlsbad. Images here

Our current top 5 Drivers … Raw distance Category!!

As of June, 2013

Top 5 Golf Drivers 2013

1. Callaway X Hot driver. Just a few months ago Callaway launched three separate drivers: RAZR Fit Xtreme, the X-Hot Pro, and the X-Hot. Each driver hits a specific niche in the market and each driver very long of the tee. After independent research and testing we feel the X Hot outpaced by the smallest margin Taylormade’s RBZ Stage 2 Driver.

2. Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 Driver. Ranked highest in other categories including best looks was this product from Taylormade’s arsenal. The RBZ will not disappoint any player, sleek, very aerodynamic and it feels so great in your hands. Taylormade hit it in the head with this product.

3. Ping G25 Driver. For everyone from beginners to Tour players, the combination of a large, forgiving head, Trajectory Tuning™ Technology, and a speed-generating shaft makes the adjustable G25 driver a sound choice for improving distance and accuracy off the tee. If you don’t think is long enough ask fan favorite Bubba Watson about it…

4. Nike VRS Covert Driver. Faster swingers see distance gains due to a reduction in spin compared to their current driver. The Nike VRS Covert feels great at impact and the results are consistent across the face; easy to hit straight— forgives minor transgressions; not a lot of sidespin. This driver was the leader in the difficult accuracy category.

5. Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme. This driver has speed written all over. This Speed Frame Face creates incredibly fast ball speeds all across the face for longer, more consistent distance. This technology helps optimize the CG, offers more forgiveness, and is designed to provide more consistent sidespin for accurate drives.
Honorable Mentions:
6. Taylormade R1 Driver
7. Tour Edge Exotics XCG6
8. Cobra Golf AMP Cell Driver
9. Adams Speedline Super S
10. Titleist 913 Driver
