Worst..Any of the wooden ones
I find that funny as in horses for courses I put the Wilson Whale at the top of my list as my best drivers, I know age comes in to it but I have never hit any driver as long as I hit that one.

Best for me TaylorMade R320ti until it got banned for COR limit, it really did trampoline I'm not a huge hitter but could easily get some long drives with this one, nice size head too, big enough but not the size of a shovel.
Worst probably TaylorMade R1, first adjustable driver I had but just couldn't get on with it, regular lost ball due to massive slice off the tee, not a huge fan of the white finish either.
Most Iconic Ping G30 the first of the turbulators, my first Ping driver and I still own it, it just works for me nice and straight (well as straight as my swing allows).

Just to add maybe I have rose tinted glasses for the R320 as I was a much better age when I owned it, and that's likely the biggest difference :LOL:

Another vote for the R7 as iconic. Pretty sure the weights made zero difference when your swing was crap!

Worst was the Nike Sumo. I had the generation after and was sooo loud, the original was ridiculous.

Best driver, I don’t know. Currently an M6 has replaced a trusty Ping G and that goes like stink. Always been impressed with the Epic Flash too.

That's 2 votes for the R320 (y)

Think I also have rose tinted specs, as I owned it when I was in my mid-twenties and used to go to the gym 4 times a week :ROFLMAO:

Best G400 really everything you would want.
Worst can’t remember the oem but called The POD .
Circular body with a large bottle top on the face.
Had a go at a pps one and smashed it , but couldn’t bring myself to buy one.
one for the Mizuno Perssimon woods just lovely.

The Pod was an ugly one. Not as bad as The Hammer, but pretty bad.
