Rather than get a new driver, take some length of the shaft of your current one, for me that was the easiest way of making my driver take the consistency of the 3W with some more length.

I have road test tested alot of drivers......to be honest in my opinion, technolgy as progressed thast much now that most of the 'big' names have a driver that claim to be forgiving, but you can still spend less that 100quid on a less 'cool' brand (fazer,ben ross,MD) and get good results.....try as many as you can, you may surprise yourself as to what suits you and what dosent...

I have always struggled with the driver but have just invested in the Mizuno JPX800 with 12 degrees of loft. And It's true what they say, loft really is your friend.
Easily the most forgiving driver I have ever used.

Yonex nano speed for me, very forgiving.
And a bargain at 79 quid from American golf!

Ping G10, if they've made a better one, why hasn't he changed!

Most forgiving driver is almost certainly the Ping K15 which is designed for the higher handicapper. A friend of mine got one and not only did it straighten him up it added about 20 yards. I tried it and found it has a lovely bouncy feel as the ball comes off the face. Will be scouring ebay for one myself soon!
As for taking some length off your current driver, be careful if you do this as it will make the shaft stiffer and so if the stiffness of the shaft is part of your problem it will make matters worse. It would be wise to consult a pro and have your swing speed tested before getting the saw out!

I have been using a Taylor Made R7 for about 18 months and tried the Nano Speed but really couldn't get it to work in 3 rounds so I took it back. Last week I tried 3 drivers at Direct Golf, Nike, Cobra and Adams. Out of these I found, much to my surprise, that the Adams was by far the most consistant and didn't have any drop in distance. However what it taught me is to try them out for yourself as different clubs and shafts suit different players. The big stores are really helpful but try to avoid a weekend!! Good luck.

I recently bought a Mizuno JPX 800 and it is a very forgiving driver. I am a beginner and have only just started playing and it gives me straight shots of about 200 yards almost every signal time. I tried a 7 drivers including a cobra S3 max, Nike SQ machspeeed, Taylormade Rocketballz before i settled on this one and i must it was worth the money I paid for it.

As I found out eventually almost all drivers can be forgiving. I struggled for years using all sorts of equipment usually with the same results, a wicked right slice. I've all but cured this with a combination of a new shaft and slowing down my swing, simple as that. After some advice I got my old Ben Hogan driver head fitted with an Aldila DVS60R shaft (a proper shaft, not the 65R OEM cheaper version) which suits my swing speed. OK, it's not a macho stiff shaft but at least I can get some consistency and although I'll never be a big hitter (I work on 220 yards max) I can now hit fairways which is half the battle. And it cost me about £80 all in Next project is to go for a deeply unfashionable old Callaway steelhead (250cc) with a fancy shaft...
