Best Selling Golf Clubs – Drivers

What are today’s the best-selling drivers? To answer that question, I turned to Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer. You can buy most any golf driver from Amazon’s Golf Shop. I asked Amazon for its current new and best-selling golf drivers and came up with the following. Click on the right or left arrows to rotate the wheel and the new and best-selling golf drivers on the Amazon marketplace today.

Short of an in-depth market survey of sales by golf club manufacturers, I think his is the easiest way to get a pretty good fix on what the public is buying. Of course the price has an effect on sales, as does the number of specific branded clubs on the market. Nevertheless, the golfing public is speaking by virtue of Amazon’s new and best seller list. Nor does this list remain static — it changes constantlhy based on current market dynamics.

Nevertheless, here are a few of the consistently top drivers during the time I was working on this article.

Callaway Diablo Octane

The intriguing thing about the Callaway Diablo Octane Driver is the “Forged Composite” construction that, according to Callaway, is one-third the density of titanium. But it is stronger than titanium, featuring “greater load carrying capacity per unit mass in bending.” This driver has a light clubhead allowing for a longer shaft shaft that produces faster clubhead and ball speed. It comes with a graphite shaft.

TEC Plus 460cc TiMatrix by King Par

Curiously, the TEC Plus 460cc TiMatrix Driver is a very-low-price club, yet it appears on Amazon’s new and bestseller list of drivers. Its Amazon reviewers rate it very highly, but are a bit cynical whether it will last as long as more expensive brand names. I believe it originally came out under King Par Superstore umbrella of names. The driver features a 460cc titanium matrix clubhead (460 cc) with the maximum amount of “spring-like” effect allowed by USGA rules (called the coefficent of restitution or COR). The shaft is graphite. Numerous Amazon reviewers found it to be a top-value-for-the-money club. Its specs are very similar to those of the more expensive clubs.

Taylormade Burner Superfast

Taylormade produced a number of Burner Superfast models in recent years. The theme of this driver is “lightness.” Compared to the earlier 2009 Burner, it is 14 grams lighter. It has a superlight WINN grip. Overall the driver weighs only 284 grams and is extra-long at 46.5 inches long. Its lightness, length and aerodynamic clubhead shape combine for maximum speed and distance.

Taylormade RocketBallz

The new adjustable RockeBallz driver features what Taylormade calls its “Driver Flight Control Technology” (FCT) that allows you to easily adjust loft (±1.5°) and face angle (±3°). The lightweight shaft and grip allows for faster swing speed for more distance. The clubhead features aerodynamics shape which promotes faster clubhead head speed for more distance. Taylormade says its “Inverted Cone” clubface technology promotes more speed and distance on off-center hits.

Callaway RAZR Hawk

This Callaway RAZR Hawk driver is also made of Forged Composite technology. It is one-third the density of titanium. Featuring an aerodynamic shape it reduces drag and promotes faster clubhead and ball speed. With a RAZR weighting system, it comes in draw and neutral configurations that allow a player to choose the one best for his or her swing. According the Callaway, the RAZR Hawk has a clubhead that is lighter and stronger than any other on the market. The shaft is an Adilia RIP graphite design that optimizes flex and torque.

Best selling golf drivers like those above mean that players are voting the them by buying them. You would do well to start your search for a replacement driver right here.

Enjoy golf,
