Summary: I bought this for my step-son who is an avid golfer and he is very satisfied with the R9 performance which makes him a better golfer. He says he recommends this to someone who is looking for a driver.
Summary: I went back and forth between this and the 460 version. A relative golf newbie, I thought the extra club head size of the 460 would be helpful. But after going with the standard model, I could not have made a better choice. First the look. Ok, we won't admit it, but it is important.
Summary: For the average golfer, this may be a good driver, as it can be adjusted to fit different players needs. The problem comes into play due to HOW one must rotate the shaft to make those adjustments.
Pros: Nice looking driver, very good shaft. Movable weights and adjustable shaft rotatation, could be good if you need that stuff
Cons: The price is a bit high. The club can be adjusted for loft, lie and face angle. All of this can be good, but if you are a better player and understand the importance of FLO alignment of the shaft, IT'S A TERRIBLE DESIGN. When you adjust the club, you have to rotate the shaft in the head, and that...
Summary: As much as I like Titleist drivers, I am putting the R9 in my bag. The Titleist D2 is 460 cc and the Taylor Made R9 is 410 cc. I decided to hit some high, down wind, fades and some bore into the wind type draws.
Pros: The R9 is a tour model and set on neutral it sits dead square, which is where I'll leave it. It has a select 75 gram stiff Fujikura shaft and 9.5 degrees loft. My Titleist D2 has an aligned UST V2 stiff 76 gr. shaft and is also 9.5 degree loft. It also sits square. I hit the R9 and my Titleist D2...
Summary: Never thought that just changing to a different club could make such a difference in my game. I am currently playing Callaway Big Bertha Cavity Back Irons (1999 version), I plan on checking out some of the advanced technology irons next to see if I can further improve my game.
Pros: The club is much lighter and easier to swing than my previous club,and has a very large sweet spot. It has helped me to be able to place my ball in scoring postions on the course more consistently, and has given me greater confidence when approaching hazards that require the ball to carry the haz...
Summary: A really effective design, for me anyway...it delivers, and up to now has not let me down, more fairways equals more fun golf...isnt that what we play for??
Pros: I have tried and disliked the Nike Str8 Fit adjustable driver...not because it didnt deliver, because it did, however the sound was really offputting.I prefer a club that sounds solid, with a nice crack into the ball, the TM R9 definitely delivers that.The head feels more stable than the Nike thr...
Cons: Nothing at this point...ask me in 6 months when my game has gone!!!
Conclusion: I have an R9 with stripped threads. The bolts are too short. Bought 2 new sleeves and am wondering if anybody out there has any ideas about getting the old one off the shaft and replacing it with the new sleeve. Could just buy different shaft and put the sleeve on it, but kind of like the Motore.
Conclusion: hi, I bought R9 8.5 loft and stiff flex, before I had a Titleist 907 D1 but regular shaft 10.5 loft. in the last regular season, I reached 240-250 m vzÃ¡delnost, the best result I have achieved in the domestic field type links 87 shots and I also reached the 300m.
