I think the new Cobra ZL is fairly long - from memory 46 inches.

Oh, I think I misinterpreted. If you're looking for one that hits the ball a long way, check out the Cobra and Adams offerings - the Adams 9015D is a beast. Whatever you get, it's mostly all about the shaft...

You could get any driver extended to have a 2 meter shaft. That would be long.

Why stop at 2 metres? Seriously long is at least 3 metres in my book. Shorter than that and you are not really trying.

FFS - When are people going to realise that there is no such thing as a "long" driver? If there was a driver that hit it longer than others they would prove it, advertise it and then noone would use anything else. All modern drivers are "long". It's how you hit it that counts.

Placegetter I know you seem to have trouble with acronyms. FFS means For F#^$s Sake! In future use this website. I find it helpful when a new Acronym is thrown at me. It also has some very weird and wonderful definitions which will make you ROFL ;-)! urbandictionary dot com! or just type it into Google. Works for me!

Correct. 3 meters is approximately a meter longer than 2 meters. That would be a very long driver.

and the less degree clubface will add metres on your drive,but may be harder to handle.

when i buy a driver i don't care where the ones out of the center go because 9 / 10 they go where you want them, i look at what happens to the miss hits that's more important!!! and lastly i look at length
