Golf Drivers: Get Longer off the Tee
Titleist 915 D2 or D3 Driver (2015)
Titleist 915 D2 & D3 Drivers: The brand new 2015 series of clubs released by Titleist include this amazing 915 Driver. Compared to the 2013 version, the 915 boasts the new Active Recoil Channel (ARC) which delivers more distance by actively flexing at impact to launch the ball off the face with higher speed and lower spin. As with previous drivers, you can make adjustments to the lie and loft to fit your game perfectly.
Price – $449.00
Titleist 913 D2 or D3 Driver (2013)
Titleist 913 Driver: It is still one of the top drivers on the market today. With the release of the 915 version, you can find the 913 at a friendlier price making it a good buy for cost conscious golfers who want the best equipment still. One of the nice features of the Titleist 913 Driver is the forged face insert that provides more speed over a larger area of the face.
Price – $359.00
Nike Covert 2.0 Driver (2013)
Nike Covert 2.0: This is another great driver for maximizing distance while maintaining control of your drives. Tour Players like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy enjoy the Nike Drivers high speed cavity back technology which redistributes weight to the heel and toe allowing for increased distance and stability.
Price – $300.00
Fairway Woods & Hybrids
Titleist 915 Fairway Wood
Titleist 915F Fairway Wood: It features the Active Recoil Channel also giving it a lower spin rate and higher ball speeds. The shallow face delivers long distance and all around performance off the tee and turf. The 913 model is not a bad option either if you prefer the less expensive option. The main difference is the new ARC technology in the 915 models.
Price – $279.00
RocketBallz RBZ Fairway Wood
RocketBallz Fairway Wood: The RocketBallz brand in general has been known for their insane distance compared to other brands. This fairway wood will send your ball off like a rocket. It features a new “ultra-high strength rocket steel material” which creates a thinner and faster flexing face. It’s improved speed pocket creates increased ball speeds which translate to more distance. Price wise it’s a good deal compared to newer clubs.
Price – $119.00
Titleist 915 Hybrid
Titleist 915 Hybrid: It uses the Active Recoil Channel for improved ball speeds as well. The high MOI design places the CG low in the club head delivering stability and ball speed while preserving forgiveness. Easy control is another benefit of this club if you prefer hybrids to woods.
Price – $249.00
Rocketballz Stage 2 Hybrid
RocketBallz Stage 2 Hybrid: Just like the RocketBallz fairway woods, the hybrids use the same ultra-high strength rocket steel material creating a thinner and faster flexing face. They have a high launch angle for helping you out of the rough and low spin to promote farther distance. The adjustable head offers 7 standard and 5 loft adjustments which vary by 1.5 degrees.

Irons Sets: Stick More Greens
2014 Titleist AP2 Forged Iron Set (4-PW)
Titleist AP2 Forged Irons: Precision engineered irons for optimum flight and distance, with increased forgiveness to help you hit it close. Advanced CG height progression creates higher launching long irons and flatter launching short irons for more carry distance with outstanding control. Generally, AP2 irons are great for the lower handicap players to stripe the ball with but if you have a mishit it shows. If you are a golfer who pures your shots and don’t need much forgiveness then these are a great fit for you.
Price – $1,100.00
2014 Titleist AP1 Cavity Back Iron Set (4-PW)
Titleist AP1 Cavity Backed Irons: On the other hand, if you don’t pure your irons 100% of the time and need forgiveness from time to time then the AP1’s are an excellent choice. I personally play these and love them for their forgiveness when I have a mishit as my shots still go as far as they should. The AP1 irons are the longest, most forgiving irons Titleist has ever made, with a multi-material, dual cavity design for players that want maximum distance, forgiveness and solid feel in a great looking progressive game improvement chassis.
Price – $900.00
2014 Nike Victory Red Covert 2.0 Iron Set (4-PW)
Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Irons: These irons feature a reengineered face and a high speed cavity backed design. They’re being praised for “longer, higher, straighter shots” as well as faster ball speed and versatility. On the price end, Nike irons are more affordable but it depends on the specs like length, shaft, etc. Solid irons all around though that competes with Titleist.
Price – $499.00
