Like most of the big-name manufacturers, Titleist have nothing genuinely new to offer for the second half of 2013.
And, like most of the others, they have gone into "Gimmick Mode" - messing around with the shape and colour of their drivers,
coming up with ridiculous name like "The RIP Phenom 70 Driver" - but offering no real improvements in performance.
The Titleist 909D Comp is still the best driver on the Titleist list - and the only Titleist driver you should consider.
Its classic looks, bullet-proof build quality, and top street-cred make it a worthwhile investment.
And the low spin-rate, mid-high launch angle, penetrating flight and long carry give it genuine appeal for mid-low handicappers.
Our low and mid-handicappers liked the Titleist 909D Comp a lot - although some found it a tad unforgiving.
Our high handicappers found it too intimidating - a few mis-hits and their confidence faded.
Our Verdict: A powerful, workable driver - but only really suitable for good ball strikers. Originally very expensive,
but since Titleist have introduced "newer" drivers, the 909D Comp can be found at greatly reduced prices.
