Summary: I bought my R9 second hand after the launch of the R11 models. What a great Driver. I am hitting the drives straight and long. I even managed to out drive an 8 handicapper with a R11S a couple of rounds ago. The R9 460 is the best investment I have ever made.
Summary: One of the best drivers I've ever played. I demoed the RBZ, Burner 2.0, Nike VRS and AMP this year and the R9 still stands head and shoulders above them. With 3 of the 4 I demoed I noticed an increase in distance but a complete loss of control.
Summary: Brought on a web site used and I had a little bit of a time to get use to it and when I did wow! every shot straight and long very very happy with this club I am 51 and hit it 250 - 260 straight every time I am a 15 Handicap and love this club bought a burner 2.0 super fast found I had no control...
Summary: I have been golfing for three years and just starting to really gain confidence in my swing. I decided to treat my self to a good driver for this season. I tried out several used drivers and found myself really liking the R9 460. The sweet spot is huge and forgiving.
Summary: Bought this driver used like new after hitting an r7 460 for a couple of years. This thing hits straight as an arrow. Fits my natural swing perfectly. It came with a matrix ozik code 7 shaft. Played in the same conditions last week. This driver was giving me 20 yds. more.
Summary: I bought this driver used at Golfsmith for 104.00. I got home and got antsy so I went straight to the course to try it out. WOW I was smashing it straight. I only missed one fairway the whole round.
Summary: Superb driver. I have tried most everything, and for me, this driver is head and shoulders above anything else. Distance, forgiveness, adjustability, feel, sound, it is all excellent. The ignorant jags that rated this a "one" should be drug through the desert. Superior, IMO, to the r11.
Summary: Having always used Cobra, driver, bafflers and irons...i thought it about time to try something else. Now i love Cobra stuff...but this R9 is something else. I can honestly say that i picked this driver up..and using rubbish range balls hit them past the 250 marker..
Summary: Using my driver creates a lot of anxiety for me. When I stand on the T-box and all of my friends are watching I just swing away and pray for a good shot. Unfortunately the majority of my shots are slices and they are either out of bounds or in the woods.
Summary: This is the driver i've been looking for. The adjustable shaft and weights have made a world of difference for my slice. Now I seem to be hooking more often, but I'm still tinkering. I've hit the R11, and I can't tell any difference between the two (other than the paint job, of course).
