Summary: This driver is huge. No, not driving huge, head huge. It looks like a dinner plate squared up to the ball. You have to tee the ball up like three inches just to hit it in the center. The face is also huge, but very round. This makes it extremely hard to work the ball.
Summary: ....and I've put the R7 back in the bag, WHICH TELLS YOU SOMETHING......I think the R9 is too heavy, gimmicky, and just not as good as the R7 for me at a least.....I never liked Aldila shafts and still DON'T....give me the Fujikura shaft anyday....a friend hit it and feels the same way...
Summary: This new R9 460 is nothing more than the normal R9 driver, but without the three movable weights. Same adjustable head where you rotate the shaft. This would be a good driver for someone that likes the adjustable shaft idea, but does care about movable weights in the head.
Pros: Nice looking driver.
Cons: I don't like the whole adjustable head/shaft design. The shaft in this driver isn't as good as the one in the other R9
Summary: I bought this club after reading reveiws - my club speed states using this shaft only to find out it's too whippie - I slowed my swing down same results - SLICE - so no improvement in distance - oh well live and learn
Summary: I purchased this product expecting to get more distance with my driver and to have the flexibility to adjust the driver to accomodate my swing. I did not get any more distance than from my old driver(6 years old) and I am still experimenting with adjustments to see if I can get more distance.
Conclusion: Ok Great stats but werid sound i couldnt take it and not when the R9 tp s430cc sounds great go try it and you will like it better and if you have any hearing problems, they will like it to , now it you want to drive your friends nuts then its the driver for you but for the crumy shaft that comes...
Summary: I have a slower swing speed and every driver I buy, senior shaft, has draw built in to it, and I draw the ball anyway. To control the draw I have to open the face on my current club. I thought having the ability to move the face would be the answer.
Summary: This is a pretty good club for players that can't get the ball in the air. It just wasn't good for my swing. I would hit the ball extremely high and if you are in windy conditions; it will be a struggle to get a consistent outcome.
