Model Reviewed: Taylormade R7 Limited TP

I average around high 80's and low 90's, and I just started playing golf a year ago when I was 13. I picked up this driver after trying my friends for a couple of rounds. It is definetely the best driver I've ever hit. I hit it about 5-10 yards longer then my previous driver (Taylormade R5). I love how the clubhead lies completely neutral, and it looks awesome at adress. If you want to bomb your drives down the middle, you need to get this driver.

Will Mac   Shoots in the 80s [Dec 26, 2009]
Model Reviewed: R7 TP Limited

Background: I play to about a 7 handicap and have been as low as a 3.5 within the past couple of years. Solid ball-striker with the irons but wayward with the driver. Like my drives, my scores can vary greatly. Anywhere between mid 70's to low 90's. Swing-speed about 110 mph to 115 mph.

This review is of my 9.5* R7 TP Limited with an x-flex stock Diamana Whiteboard shaft.

I'd long resisted even trying any of the strange shaped high MOI drivers on the market. Instead, I've always preferred the more traditionally shaped offerings. Matter of fact, I could never even get comfortable with the largest 460cc drivers.

My driver of choice for a long time and one to which I compare all others is a Taylor Made R7 425 TP with a stiff Graphite Design PM 702 shaft, 44.5".

I'd tried so many of the latest and greatest drivers on the market but like I said, I just couldn't find one that seemed special. Certainly, not one that could surpass the performance of my tried and true 425 TP.

A friend of mine had an R7 Limited and I tried it. Although the shaft didn't suit me, I was very impressed by the super-solid feel at impact. So, I ordered one for myself.

This driver has been nothing short of sensational for me. Incredibly solid and forgiving with a terrific launch angle and and great distance. I'm not trying to claim Herculean distance gains here, but the increase is surely noticeable. Perhaps 10 or so yards consistently longer than my current driver.

Where I'd thought it would take time to adjust to the clubhead's triangular shape, that's just not the case for me. It sets up perfectly square behind the ball (I cannot play drivers with a closed face-angle) and I now find it quite appealing.

I have a natural tendency to miss toward the toe and will therefore gravitate to clubs that a more forgiving of this fault. The R7 Limited is superb in it's forgiveness of contact toward the toe. Slight loss of distance but direction is barely affected.

The stock x-flex Whiteboard is more like a sturdy stiff, in my opinion. I find it to load beautifully with a very powerful release through impact. I have an extra Graphite Design PM 702 laying around which I'd intended to drop into this clubhead but I've since scrapped those plans. The driver with it's current set-up is the smoothest and most powerful that I've hit to date.

From what I've heard, the R9 is even a step-up from the Limited. But truth be told, I'm so darn impressed with the Limited that I see no reason at all to switch. Perhaps when it fails me but even then, considering the club's fantastic properties, I'd have to admit it being more the player than the club.

All in all, I highly recommend giving this one a go.

I was using a Mizuno RX 560 driver until i picked this club up. I was at first a little skeptical about the MWT but forgot about because it's about the mechanics of the swing. I've only been able to test it out on the driving range and one round but what a difference. Hitting it solid I was consistently hitting 280 plus. One of my drives rolled straight up to the netting and you could see the ripples in it. I'm hoping this will help me become a 80's shooter next season. By the way the round that I used this club I shot a 87. Oh I forgot the price. I picked this demo up on EBay for $71.00 in excellent condition.
