This is what I've been thinking.
I've been using my buzzzes and comets for everything 400' and under (with some obvious exceptions where a driver is called for) lately and have had really good success. For one, they don't fade nearly as hard and don't skip as far as true drivers. I'm really surprised that more people don't use Rocs/Buzzzes/Comets/Etc for this length vs something like a TB. I know the obvious answer of people not having the power but I think many more people do but have been seduced by the "latest and greatest" from the manufacturers telling them they "need" a driver.
I stop considering a mid outside of about 360' on flat ground, but sometimes I'll use a PD on a 320' shot because I have to hit a tight gap off the tee and I want to throw very effortlessly and accurately.
