Need help guys. What drivers have you used or are still using that are Draw Biased? Looking to get one.

Thanks!

I fight a hook so I'm probably the wrong person to answer this but try the Ping K15. It's draw biased and really easy to hit.

You can always get an R9 420, R9 Supertri, or R11 and tinker around with MWT and FCT. That's a whole lot of options. :D

Just put your Driver on the table with the head freely hanging over the edge, or balance the club on your fingers. You should see the face facing up to differing degrees. The more it faces up, the more draw biased it is. Choose your poison. The rest of your decision is dependent upon your brand bias, whatever feel you get from holding the club and if the club's looks suit your eye.

I think that most commercial brand drivers i.e. TM and Callaway have draw bias. Even the clubs marked as "neutral" still have a closed face. My Callaway is 0.5 to 1 degree closed but it is marked "neutral." I think TM is the same or has more draw bias except for the TP series.

all non-tour version of callaway drivers that are currently on the racks are most likely draw bias, together with Taylormade burner 2.0 non- TP version....

The Burner Superfast 2.0 is also draw biased and is one of the lightest clubs in it's class. Another one you should try.

Manufacturing tolerances can affect how an end product comes out. I think the tolerance is +/- 1.5 degrees on Face Angle.

You have to hold the actual product to be sure. Baka naman sobra rin.

There are two ways to get draw bias.

Closed face=draw.

or

Internal weighting= more (extreme) weight on heel side = draw

Draw bias..... Shambles is correct setting on the table will show the amount of draw bias. Most drivers even ones will square face angles will point upward. Physics.

Best way to check is to set in on the ground against the intersection where tiles meet. The reason for this is some sole designs (some inadvertently) have lent themselves to "sitting closed". The most obvious example would be the TM R460, even the TP will sit a little closed. This is because the port holes where the weight ports are on the heel area will naturally shut the club when set down. Design flaw? Maybe, the way most pros solved it and could still keep playing that model would be to grind off a bit of the material/metal on the MWT port area. I think that problem may have actually been the source for the technology of the ASP in the R11. That may not be an issue if you do not ground your driver.


Internal weighting. Personally I think face angle does a lot more than internal weighting when it comes to affecting ballflight. However I do prefer a square face angle with draw weighting over a closed face angle because I belong to the school that we should all learn to hit it on a more or less square swingpath. Having a square FA is the best way to learn that.

Of course my right eye dominance makes me think everything is closed and makes me aim to the right.
