So, onto the review:
I bought this driver in 10.5? Stiff Flex shaft about a month ago, and have only used it for 4 rounds, so I'm still getting used to it. That being said, I went out yesterday morning (my 4th round with the driver), and I felt like a mix between prime Tiger Woods and prime Mike Tyson off the tee box when using this club. I was consistently hitting FIR, more of a controlled fade and two shots were dead on the nuts straight as an arrow. My longest drive of the round was on the 9th hole, a gradual downhill par 5 with a dogleg to the right (playing into my now controlled fade). According to my GPS, I drove the ball 273yds, with a FIR.
I am still getting used to the club, and not having to attempt to compensate for my horrible slice, but the more I use this driver, the more it's growing on me. As another reviewer said, perhaps correcting poor technique with clubs isn't the best answer, and I am positive some lessons would help me to correct some of my issues, I'm also a realist, and understand that I'm not trying to qualify for the PGA tour.
The only possible drawback to the club is the factory shaft. I usually prefer an X-Stiff flex and a lighter shaft, and being 6'3" the length of the shaft is on the short side for my liking, but that is an easy fix should I decide to swap the shaft out.
Hope this helps, sorry for the rambling.
