Titleist 905T Driver Review

By Jim Hagerty

Specs

The Titleist 905T Pro Titanium driver is a popular club made for advanced and average players. It features the signature Titleist teardrop-shaped head (400 cc), which has a front-to-back weight distribution. The 905T's face insert is made of beta-titanium; the body of high strength, lightweight 6-4 titanium. Graphite shafts are available in several stock options, including the popular UST Proforce V2 75. Available lofts range from 7.5 to 11.5 degrees in right-handed clubs and 8.5 to 10.5 in left-handed drivers.

Perks

The 905T is truly a versatile driver. Its front-to-back weight distribution and average size promote penetrating ball trajectories and proper spin. Average and aspiring players also can benefit from the clubhead's size and the ability to get the ball up with a lighter-flexed shaft and a variety of loft options.

Sacrifices

Although an extremely solid club, this Titleist driver is lacking a bit in the forgiveness department. Shaft selection must be done carefully. Because of its advanced head construction, the mid-to-high handicap player may have a tendency to slice the ball and a pro could develop a case of the "hooks" very quickly. The club requires smooth and controlled swings. The 905T is also very loud on impact.

Bottom Line

The 905T is a solid titanium driver that gets the ball up quickly. Though not necessarily better than a Taylor Made, Callaway or Ping driver, this Titleist gets the job done.
