Simple question...which driver our has the hottest face and provides the highest ball speeds, shaft not withstanding. I've heard that the XR-03 produces the longest drives, but I've heard that Homna and OnOff drivers have the highest COR, making them the hottest. Any truth to these? Thanks for your help.

The longest driver I have EVER hit is the XR-03. I have hit the Callaway GBB II+ 415, a R7 MAX, and a R5 Max and the XR-03 was longer than all of them.

I could only wish that they would make a legal version of this driver because I would play it all the time.

But then would it be as long?!

For me, the non-conforming Nike Ignite DFI 9.5* shafted with Tour AD M-65 and the conforming J33R 10.5* shafted with Axiv 6568H are both the same - low boring trajectory with similar distance. I guess with my ugly swing, it does not matter whether the club is conforming or non-conforming.

The ZR-600 has the strongest results as a head on the monitor for a lot of people.

Perhaps I'm misreading your question... but COR is just one variable in the distance equation (and it is .83 or .86 max)... However, there are high and low launch heads, and additionally there are high and lower spin heads, matching the correct properties to YOUR swing will yield better distance for you...

It may not be, but I have yet to hit a driver that felt as good as the XR-03 did. I would trade 5-10 yards for that feeling in a heartbeat!
