TaylorMade r7 Limited TP Driver Review

Conclusion: Hey everyone. Sorry to bring up an old subject for my first post but I'd really like to know just how far from the top o' the line TM driver I am with using my R580XD. It has worked for me for a long time, but I may be giving up distance/accuracy (duh!) with something newer.
Conclusion: I recieved the r7 Limited this past Christmas as a surprise- my wonderful wife heard me talking about it and pleasantly surprised me- it is BY FAR the best driver I have played- the slice is non-existent and i am hitting the ball on average about 30-35 yards longer than before. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Conclusion: Last year my brother came out with his R7, 3 screw, triangular shaped club. I wasn't hitting well with my driver and tried his. I crushed the ball (R flex 9.5) I went to buy one but could not afford it. Recently I went to a seminar at Golf Galaxy and there in the used clubs was the R7.
Conclusion: I've had every driver made it seems. I wasn't at a practice center where Taylormade had a Demo Van out and I was bantering with the rep that I havent hit their drivers since the 320i. He finally took me aside and said amongst the Tmade crew the secret was the R7 Limited TP.
Conclusion: I've been playing the R5 for the past few seasons. I'm not a long hitter as my typical distance is approx. 230 yards. Last weekend I borrowed a friends R7 Limited and loved it. My shortest drive was 240 and hit most 260 and two drives at 280.
Conclusion: George's review is right on the money. I have a R7 Limited TP, 10.5 with the Rombax shaft and find it to be one of the most appealing TMs ever. My previous favorite was a 540XD TP followed by the R5 TP.
Conclusion: What do you mean by a lower ss? Some seniors consider mid- 90s slow. Anyway, i had an extra 45 gram stock shaft from a R7 CGB MAX and i put it in the limited head. This shaft is a proprietary Mitsubishi "Bassara", a nice $300 piece of graphite.
Conclusion: Having played the R580XD for several years, I decided to look at replacing it. It does what I need it to do, but seems heavier then other newer TM drivers and I like that. If you were to compare the two, would the R7 Limited be a better choice for a 60 yr old with a lowering ss?
Conclusion: Being a current R7 Quad Driver user & non liker of the current crop of 460cc monstrosity's but interested in new technology - Is this a much better driver then the Quad? Assuming it is a little more forgiving & sounds as if it may hit the ball higher?
