Reviews and Problems with TaylorMade R9 460 Driver
Showing 1-6 of 6
Purchased as a replacement for the R7.....
3 March 2011
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....he plays the R5, still. I just think these companies need to continually tinker and crank out stuff to achieve their margins....now it's the R11.....
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. I do like the look and feel of the driver and the ability to adjust the face angle.
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 with it is not the driver they say it is but what do i know i only have one in my closet and i dont hit it werid cause if was that good more pros would play it .Ck
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. It did not work for me and the 460 R9 seems head heavy to me. I also tried another shaft with a little lower kick point and lighter weight and that didn't work either. Off center hits really loose the distance.
