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".
Summary: Just bought an R7 SQ 10.5 loft with a regular flex shaft. I am very dissappointed with this club. the wiehts are set to max draw, i do hit it straight but only getting about 250 yards on my drives im going to but a stiff shaft in it and see if there is any differance if not back to my 454 big...
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.
Summary: The R7 is a solid driver for a more advanced golfer. I have had several of the taylor made drivers starting with the r580, r5, and r7. Out of the three drivers I used I found the r5 more forgiving for off center hits. I have also found the r7 has more control for turning or moving the ball.
Summary: First...I really wanted to like this club. I HAD the R580XD and now, wish I would have kept it. I play pretty much a straight ball, when I am on my game I can work it a bit and when I am NOT on my game I tend to fade the ball.
Summary: I have had my R7 with aldila NV65 for 3 months now. This has given me plenty of opportunity to get to know this driver. Just for the record, my handicap is 6 and I have a driver swing speed of around 104 mph. First the good news!
Summary: Unfortunately the driver does not live up to it's promises. I have a 9.5 stiff that cannot launch the ball high enough even with 3.25" tees. The face is too closed for someone with a natural draw swing. I must take the club outside to keep the ball from hooking on aggressive swings.
Summary: I didn't like this one very much. It can be an effective weapon once you spend some time with it, but amateurs and poor ball strikers are better off keeping their cash and buying something cheaper and more forgiving.
