the difference between a standard driver and a long drive driver?

Hello,

Firstly i apologies for posting this topic twice and in this section but i Didn't know where else to ask questions to all the competitors.

I am looking to get into the sport of long drive and am considering purchasing a new 50" driver for open division. My friend recently imported a Geek dot com this 7.5deg with a HOF hd prototype XX shaft which i used to test out, it felt like hitting a ball with an old hammer, there was no spring and the ball was going about 80-100m shorter than my standard burner driver 9.5, which feels like im hitting a rubber ball with a spring. my club speed is around 120mph and even middling the ball with this club went no where and the contact felt 'hard'. Is this feeling normal with long drive drivers? or is something wrong with the club?

p.s. My friend can use the club either but i'm not surprised because he has a slower club speed.
