ONE GOLF DRIVER THAT TUNES TO ANY LOFT, ANY LOOK AND ANY FLIGHT!
80% of golfers are playing the wrong loft. 24% of golfers are wrong by 2° or more. One single golf club, the new TaylorMade R1 driver can be tuned to fit Tour pros and amateurs alike with 7 standard and 5 upright loft options between 8º and 12º (± 2º) to obtain optimal launch angle. With an incredible amount of adjustability the R1 also features 7 face angle options: N/square, open, medium-open, maximum-open, closed, medium-closed, maximum-closed; as well as shot-shaping movable weights to promote a neutral/straight flight or a distance-enhancing draw.
TAYLORMADE R1 DRIVERS FEATURE:
- Adjustable lofts - 7 standard and 5 upright loft options, 7 face angle options
- Shot-shaping movable weights
- Improved aerodynamics reduce drag
- Thick-thin crown provides lower and more-forward center of gravity location promoting high launch, fast ball speed and low spin
- Inverted Cone Technology milled into the inner side of the clubface expands the portion of the face that delivers high ball speed
- Black clubface, non-glare white crown and new gray/orange/ black crown graphic together promote easy alignment
- Graphite shaft available in Regular and Stiff
DISTANCE: Adequate or better length for the majority of players; consistent from shot to shot; shines on the course more than on the launch monitor.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: One of the best of the bunch—lots of fairways hit; easy to make solid contact; very good correction on heel or toe hits—mis-hits are seemingly rewarded.
FEEL: Firm sensation with very good stability through the impact zone; muscular feel and good feedback lets you know when you hit it solid.
PLAYABILITY: One of the higherrated models; testers are able to alter trajectory and shot shape with relative ease; excels on shots into the wind.
LOOK: Large graphics on the crown help many testers with their alignment; pleasing Tour proven shape and contrast of white crown and black face works well.
BOTTOM LINE: One of the top-ranked drivers. Scores very high for playability and forgiveness.
