Summary: I've had a few Taylor Made Burners over the years. Very solid driver but if you play a lot the face will eventually crack as will your soul. You'll say to yourself: Why do I hit like I'm 90? or If I see that chick out drive one more time I'm going put my cigar out on my d hole. Bottom Line: Great driver just don't expect longevity if you play a few times a week.
Summary: I've been starting to play this great game for a short period of time so far. i'm gifted at sports so Golf has been not easy but lets say fair to me I've tried several drives, different brands (Cleveland, Taylormade, Tiltest) different stiffness too (regular, stiff, Xstiff) and the two best and more comfortable for my growing yet immature playing style where both Taylormade, this Burner tour and RBZ. My Burner has regular and 10.5 loft, the RBZ was stiff and 9.5.
Bottom line is if you are able to get ahold of this club get it!

Summary: I went with Taylormade due to the reliability that they are know for. I was in search of a new driver to replace my current driver. The burner superfast is just that, super fast! I think it may have added 20yrds to my drive. (not sure if its the additional loft or the shaft and club combo.
Summary: I bought the Burner because my teaching pro thought this would be a good club for me. I really like the sound of the ball rocketing off the face but dislike the low trajectory I get. It is probably my lack of proper swing plane rather any shortcomings of the driver.
Really loving my Burner Superfast. Wish I had bought it sooner.

Summary: A really great driver. It's about 5 to 10 yards longer than my previous Callaway X driver. The club feels really light and I love the look when I address the ball. The aerodynamic look of the club head behind the ball just gives you a feeling of confidence in hitting a great shot of the tee. As I get older (I'm 62), I'm always looking for those ten yards that I've lose each year. The regular flex shaft seems suited to my swing and is not to whippy.
Summary: Have been playing this club now for a couple of years and I love it. Very forgiving and consistent. Since the face is slightly closed I do have to set-up with a slightly weak grip to keep from hooking the ball. My ball trajectory is high so the ball carries a long way but stops when it lands (9.5 loft). The stock stiff flex is light and seems to not be a stiff as other stiff flex shafts I've hit.
Good head with the right shaft. 3.2 to 3-4 torque 55 to 60 grams.

Summary: The burner 09 Head is the best bar far for feel and distance. However the stock shaft is to light and weak for advanced golfers. When I installed a burner 08 shaft in this head got more distance and accuracy. Then the R-9 came out and low and behold it was ten yards longer. The R-11 then came out and I don't like it at all so its back to the R-9. Never get rid of a Taylor made Driver.
Summary: Well balanced and comfortable to swing.What a great club for the golf bag large easy to line up the ball really makes the ball fly when ya swing the club. Its a very well made club above the others...
Summary: Superfast TP is one of the best drivers I've hit and much easier and lighter than R11. Even though I purchased it with the Fubuki 73x5ct, I was able to hit it consistent. I'm sure the driver will be much better when I put a lighter shaft. I've owned the Supertri, R9, R9 460, R11, 910 D2 and I believe this is the best of the bunch.
