    Taylormade Tour Burner vs Cleveland HiBore XLS driver?

    Just saw an ad for these two clubs for the same price. I'm leaning Cleveland since my irons are made by them. Any recommendations? I haven't had a driver in my bag for about 10 years (the last one ended up in a Minnesota cornfield under mysterious circumstances).

    I have a nike Sumo that I am really starting to like (the lessons have nothing to do with that I am sure). I know you can get those Sumo's for cheap now.

    HiBore is a piece of ****. Take the Burner any day over that spaceship.

    Re: Taylormade Tour Burner vs Cleveland HiBore XLS driver?

    Thanks for the advice......my main consideration is that I have a high swing speed, so the flexible shafts don't seem to work out too well for me.

    Ping G 10 is the one I hit the best.

    Try them all and buy the one that works for you, not the one someone else said you should buy

    I have a high swing speed as well and I picked up the Adams A4 this year. Love it.

    The main thing you need to focus on is the shaft. This will have the biggest impact on how well you hit the driver.

    Taylormade has a deal where if you buy the Burner you get a fairway wood or hybrid for free.

    Cleveland and Callaway do as well.

    Go with the Burner hands down. I also have a high swing speed and the stiff shaft in that driver has been very consistent for me. I used to hit a Titleist 905t and made the switch to the Taylor Made Burner and added around 15 to 20 yards off of the tee and have been much more accurate.

    Then again that is just me. What you really should do is check around some local courses and driving ranges to see if they have Demo Day coming up anytime soon. This would be a great opportunity for you to test out different models, shafts, kick points, etc... to see which driver is best for you. There really is a lot to take into consideration.

    Well, this is an idea I gave my wife for father's day/ birthday, and mainly mentioned those two because they were advertised at $129-$149. I don't know that I want to ask for anything higher than that.
