Taylor Made R5 for about $25
Callaway FTI for about $40

Both are in good condition. I am used to a stiff shaft and the R5 has a medium senior flex shaft which makes me hesitant.
Thank you

I am also used to playing with a stiff shaft Driver. Several years ago, I stayed at my father-in-laws and used his senior flex shaft Callaways for a few weeks.

There was a definite adjustment period and bad swings were magnified because of the extra whip in the shaft. I played better with those clubs than I would have suspected overall. However, I would not have wanted to play that driver on any course I could not spray the ball.

Unless you can change out the shafts yourself, I would go with the Callaway, since it has the type shaft you are accustomed to. I would guess there is a better than average chance you will not like the medium senior flex shaft. If that be the case, the final price of the Taylor Made will quickly double or triple the Callaway if you have to reshaft it at retail.

The goal is long and straight! But on the many times I cannot seem to hit them straight, I at least want to hit them long!
