I know a guy that sells this for not much money. Was thinking about getting it for the fun of it, but is this still a driver to be "reckoned" wit or is it more of a cult classic that is not really comparable to newer drivers? Also, are there fake 415s around? It seems improbable but thought I'd ask. This is the driver in question.

If it's cheap go for it. I love that driver. It's old but its a classic. Feel is superb! It can still hang with what's out now.

Vegaman, send me a pm if you pick it up and doesn't work out. If he has an epon 380 or 420 in the stable, I'd really love to get his contact info.

Isn't that a picture of the 460?

I don't think the 380 and 420 are as good as the 460 in terms of distance and forgiveness. Me personally I would only pick up the 460 technity.

Sorry if I confused you guys.

    Which One??
I played the 415 for a couple rounds when i was playing the 460

Small sweet spot, solid, but no where near as good as the 460. Mis hits
are no fun.

He says it's the 415, can he be wrong per chance? This is the exact driver he is selling, the one in the photo I mean.

To me it looks like the 460 in shape and design. I'm not 100% as their were several variations of the 460 and they all looked like that.

The 460 and 415 Technity drivers have the same general shape and design with the 415 being more compact and pear shaped.

Its a bit harder to hit but very good feel and very good distance.
