Summary: Definitely not a beginners driver. It is not forgiving. Miss hits at toe or heel will definitely punish you. It is a bomb when you hit the sweet spot and will send your ball very long. It is easy to fade your shots by slicing it. To draw your shots is easy too by hitting "inside-out". Moving the weights will find your best drive. It is a all-in-one driver without damaging your pocket. I switched to Callaway Razr Fit to hit my shots straight and long.
Summary: I thought this club would give me the ability to shape my shots more. I find that it makes no diference to me moving the weights. I also found that I can drive the ball further with my old Taylormade R580. I took both clubs out to a course and used both drivers off the tees on every hole I was able to do so. Prior to this I did spend time on the range hitting balls with the Superquad. I do not believe the Superquad gives any better performance than an older R580.
Summary: 9.5 400cc head. High face design with a Grafalloy Blue reg. flex factory installed shaft. When I purchased this driver last year, I loved it. But last year was my fourth in what is becoming a life long addiction so I took a series of lessons and then swing analysis and in the end, I have a nice draw with all my clubs that are square at address. This is not true for the non TP versions of the 400cc or the 425 cc heads in 9.5. They are a whole degree closed.
Summary: I have been playing golf regularly for 15 years and play to a single digit handicap. The weakest parts of my golf game are my drives and the short game. Thus I like to try new drivers from time to time to see if I can find that one magical club. 70's I bought the r7 Driver at Golfsmith for $399. This driver is extremely well built and exudes quality. When struck in the center of the clubface, the ball rockets off and feedback is very good.
Summary: I borrowed this Taylor Made r7 driver from a friend. He paid $499 for it at Golf Galaxy. It is a good looking driver. The shaft is very good, not too whippy and not too stiff. I was curious to try out the variable weighting system incorporated into the perimeter of the clubhead. I have gotten accustomed to a larger headed driver, the TaylorMade 580XD. Even though the 580XD is 440cc and the r7 is 400cc, the r7 looks much smaller in comparison.
Summary: Purchased the club new for $449, plus $14 shippng. I purchased this club after trying several drivers. Out of the clubs that I tried this club was solid and gave me the opportunity to be a little versatile depending on how much I'd been swinging the club, course conditions, and weather conditions. The club that I purchased was not the same as the demo club that I tried out.
