The best pre-owned drivers you can buy right now

We have had a good look around the Golfbidder warehouse and gathered up the best pre-owned drivers right now (February, '22).

Whether you want best in class for speed, tech, distance, accuracy, adjustability, or budget, there is something here for you.

We'll be looking at the below models:

  • TaylorMade SIM
  • Titleist TS2
  • Cobra Speedzone
  • Callaway Epic Flash
  • Ping G400 SFT
  • Cobra KING LTD
  • TaylorMade M2

Best for tech - TaylorMade SIM

TaylorMade SIM driver

Don't for a second think just because Stealth with its carbon face is here that SIM is redundant. It's not!

The TaylorMade SIM driver is absolutely packed with performance technology. And, now, in the pantheon of pre-owned, it's a giant.

SIM built on the considerable success TaylorMade had with the M-Series drivers. They've added the new aerodynamic sole and Inertia Generator to increase swing speed and overall distance.

Every face is speed injected to USGA and R&A limits, and Twist Face is there for forgiveness on off-centre hits. The sliding weight track and 4-degree loft sleeve allow for huge adjustability.

The SIM was used by Tiger, Rory, Morikawa, Berger, Fleetwood, DJ, and countless others if you want pedigree.

Best for consistency - Titleist TS2

Titleist TS2 driver

Other companies jump from one massive tech tagline to the next with their drivers. Titleist sticks religiously to their two-year release cycle. They are more subdued in their approach and super consistent every time.

We've picked the TS2 because there was a marked sea change compared to all the great Titleist drivers that came before it. More smash, more speed, more stability, and most importantly (perhaps) more use on Tour.

There was a massive push by Titleist internally to keep up with the competition in the driver distance stakes. Everything was looked at and refined before the TS family was considered ready.

If you've got a slightly bigger budget, we'd argue that the next model, the TSi2, is a real breakthrough driver and step up again. But if you want a consistent top-quality pre-owned driver, the Titleist TS2 delivers bang for your buck.

Best for value - Cobra Speedzone

Cobra Speedzone driver

At Golfbidder, we're huge fans of Cobra and the massive work they put in to produce quality drivers. When you strip back the Speedzone driver, you reveal quality from top to bottom.

The chassis is solid and makes total sense. A central bar in the crown is in line with all the weight, which allows simple adjustability; heavier weight in the front for low trajectory and low spin, or in the back for more stability and more spin.

The face, too, is fantastic. CNC is milled, super thin, and forgiving, even if you hit it off centre thanks to the E9 technology pattern. Throw in the MyFly shaft adjustability, and altogether you've got incredible value in the Cobra Speedzone driver.

Best game-changer - Callaway Epic Flash

Callaway Epic Flash driver

If you're playing a five-year-old driver, it doesn't matter which one and a genie appeared with a driver that will change your game; they would be handing you the Callaway Epic Flash driver.

The instantaneous smash factor you'll get from this driver will knock your socks off. And you have incredible adjustability in the sliding weight track and adjustable loft sleeve.

The distance comes courtesy of an AI designed Flash Face, which has a huge sweet spot and that's braced with jailbreak bars to stiffen the whole head to return more speed back to the ball. A triaxial carbon crown increases forgiveness even further.

Best for finding fairways - Ping G400 SFT

Ping G400 SFT driver

For beginners and within a reasonable distance - finding the fairway is more important than being closer to the green. The G400 driver from Ping has an MOI, or resistance to twist rating, of 9,000. This means that even if you catch it out of the toe or heel, the face will stay as square as possible to help you find the fairway more often.

Ping adds their Straight Flight Technology (or SFT) into the mix to further enhance the offering. STF manifests itself in the form of a tungsten weight in the heel, which helps correct a fade (or even slice), again helping you find more fairways.

If you're looking at a long and forgiving driver with a built-in draw bias, then the Ping G400 SFT is set up, off the rack, for your game.

Best for under £150 - Cobra KING LTD

Cobra KING LTD driver

At Golfbidder, we have hundreds of great drivers for under £150, but one really stands out, the Cobra King Ltd driver.

Cobra has a knack for backing the right guys. With Bryson DeChambeau still hitting his Cobra King Ltd driver miles five years after it was released, you know this is a serious club.

Now we're no Brysons', but to us, the Cobra King Ltd will still be one of the highest MOI or most forgiving drivers out there. In layman's terms, you'll get high launch and low spin, which equals a lot of distance. Simply, a super option for under £150.

Best pound for pound - TaylorMade M2

TaylorMade M2 driver

When you play value off against performance, we still can't beat the original M2 driver from TaylorMade. Every single thing about this driver is still unquestionably great.

Whether it's the cosmetically perfect black and white carbon crown, the speed pocket for distance, the huge sweet spot, the perfect weighting, or the loft adjustability. It just wouldn't be a best driver video without this one!

Anyone taking up the game of golf and looking for a driver on a budget, we always suggest starting here.
