Great price for a good driver. Available in 10 deg or 14 deg loft. Unless you are a very good golfer or have a fast swing - I'd go with the 14 deg loft - you'll gain distance and be more accurate.

I have the Innovator X fairway woods and they are very good.

14 degree loft will gain you distance and accuracy???!! You must be kidding. Your right about accuracy but the loft of this club would mean you lost a significant amount of distance, the 14 degree option would be so similar to a 3 wood. I would say go for a 10 degree driver personally. Swing speed doesn't make any difference to the loft of the club either, just the flex of the shaft.

Like I said a very good golfer should probably go with the 10 deg - many golfers a 12 deg but if those golfers went for a 14 deg they aren't going to lose too much distance but more importantly by staying on the fairway and by keeping it in the air many will gain ground.
Its going to depend on the flight produced by the shaft but there is some info here

Yeah - tell me about it.............

I struggle a bit with the cheap 12 deg I have at the moment and I'm a high handicapper so I resorted to using my Innovator X 3 wood for drives. The driver shaft is 2 inches longer than the 3 wood which should give me more distance and I've gone with the 14 deg to try and make sure I stay on the fairway.

That's not actually true. Today's golfer did a very in depth test of driver lofts in 2009 and the results were very interesting. Most mid to high handicapped players were able to hit more accurately and longer with a 13 degree lofted driver than they could with lower lofts. This is because the thing that most higher handicapped players struggle with is ball flight and left to right spin. Higher lofts help out on both.

I've heard this driver is a great club for the rrp price so hot deal!
