The Alpha C830.2 driver just can't seem to stay out of my life!! It was the first driver that I ever truly loved, falling for her with the very first swing way back in 2005. Back then it was an 8.5 loft X-flex (Penley ETA Tour), and I would get mad whenever I DIDN'T hit the ball over 300 yards. As I aged and I grew wiser, and weaker, and started focusing more on hitting fairways rather than bombing it as far as humanly possible, I got rid of it because I didn't hit it well when I swung slower. Then after missing her for a while, I picked up a 9.5° and shafted it up with a stiff flex Harrison Saga. After a few years of that I switched the 9.5 head to a 10.5 (same shaft), and played that on/off for a couple more years. After seriously hurting my back 4 years ago and losing nearly all my power (a 250 yard drive is a bomb for me these days) I got rid of that one, but last fall snatched up a 12 degree which I paired up with a firm flex Matrix Red Tie.
To this day, it is the best sounding and feeling driver I have ever hit. I hit some longer, and some straighter, but none sound or feel as good as my first true love.
