Ti Bubble vs Ti Bubble2

Post by Nebb.. » Tue, 16 Dec 1997 04:00:00


 Hello,

  I'm hoping some one can help me choose which driver to get. I currently
use a Big Bertha warbird 11 deg. with regular flex and hit it about 230
yards on average. I get the occasional long one but I would like
something a bit longer as I have trouble with some of the par 4's in my
home course. Especially that blasted 452 yard par 4 7th hole.

  I have tried the GBB and BBB but I really didn't come away impressed
recently I had the opportunity to use a 10.5 deg r-80 Ti Bubble and
enjoyed the experience tremendously. So I was wondering if the Ti2 is
worth the extra $ as I have been unable to demo it and know next to
nothing about it.

     So what do you thing the original or the 2. Thanx.

Nebbish,
My driver, like yours, was a Big Bertha warbird 11 deg.  I went to the 10.5 deg
Ti bubble with the r-80 shaft and have never regretted my change. I wasn't that
impressed with the Great Big Bertha either.  I picked up 25 yards and lost very
little control. The only thing I had to remember at first was to slow my swing
down and wait for the club to catch up.  I regret to say that , although I have
looked at the Ti2, I haven't been able to demo it on the range.Good luck with
your new driver, whichever one you choose, and enjoy each day on the course!

I just finished a similar "taste test" and decided to make the ti bubble the
driver that I carry in my bag.  I did this in a simulator environment so
take that into consideration... but I figure that if I can hit a driver in
that tight little space, out on the course will be no problem.  My average
drive with the ti bubble was 278 while the ti bubble 2 was about 235... but
I had a real tough time keeping the 2 from snap hooking on me.  Both clubs
had the same loft(9.5) and shaft (s-90plus) and I was using the same ball...
maybe it was the extra length of the 2's shaft but I never felt like I could
tear into one... in fact with the ti bubble I hit one into the screen that
said it had 281 yards of carry!!  Now I dont know if that is true or not but
the longest I hit the ti2 was 244 and that hit a tree to the right with a
slight fade.

I decided to save the money and got a ti bubble instead...

hope this helps,

Rob

I have demoed both clubs although I've never hit either on a course.  I
think the Ti Bubble has better control than the Ti2.  I hit my (Killer
Bee) driver 250-275.  On the range, I hit the Ti 230-270 and the Ti2
220-250.  Both had regular flex and 9.5 of loft.  The Ti felt better and
was more accurate.

Sorry, but the Ti Bubble II is just too big for my eye.

I would think if you're using the original BB, then the GBB and BBB would
seem to be too big to your eye too?

Some of the decision might be dependent on handicap? As I understand
it, the bigger clubs don't necessarily promise more distance, but, because
they're bigger, should be more forgiving, which is more important to a
high handicapper having trouble finding the sweet spot than a low or
mid-handicapper looking for distance and performance.

And then again, I undertand a lot of pros (including Lehman and Els) are
using Ti II. They're hitting it well, no doubt, but they ARE getting paid
to use the latest model.

With Ti II being the currenlty hyped model, you should save significant
bucks buying the original model (and even more bucks if you wait a while).

Good golfing -
