I am playing the R7 Tour and I am very pleased. I had been a loyal Titleist user for 5 years but I have really noticed some distance gains with this R7 425. I have always had too much spin but the R7 425 with the REAX Rombax shaft seems to have reduced the spin but kept the launch. It has a solid feel and the sound is ok. I also tried the 905R, Cleveland Comp, and Tourstage 435 at the beginning of the year to find my driver for the season and the R7 425 was the obvious winner.

 

Have not tried the R7 Steel FW Tour. I am pretty loyal to my TM 200 Tour. I have not hit any other fairway woods since putting them in the bag 2 years ago.

I've tried the R7 TP 13* Steel w/ TP NV 75x. Plays like the smoothies, feels great but didn't find it very forgiving. Me likes the R7 TP Tour mucho better. IMO, the Steel looks noticibly smaller. I hit some poor shots w/ the Steel that I've never hit w/ the R7 TP Tour. I got rid of it after one range session. However, others have found it to be a great club.

both great, especially the driver, i absoulutly love it. the woods are good, but i must say i dont hit them much. it's my 1st year with a 5wood 7 2iron rotation & use the 3iron off the tee alot. i cant comment on flight as i haven't hit the R7 Ti, but they feel good & can hit it high or low. still like the Cleveland Launcher Steel compared to these, just as good.

How is the ballflight of the R7 TP vs. R7 Steel Tour? I hear the Steel hits a bit higher.

 

My R7 TP Tour is 15* and the Steel was a 13* so hard to compare. W/ that said, I used to play a 13* V Steel Tour w/ Fuji 95x and the trajectory was similar. Perhaps it was the NV 75x that was in the steel but I did not like it at all. The face is more shallow( I like a deeper face) and the head looks smaller. The club just did not inspire confidence for me.

I figured more of you guys had hit the 425 and R7 Steel Tours?

 

The R7 steel tours are smaller headed fw than the titanium R7 and looks like the older 200 steel if not a touch smaller of a head. The tours might not be getting a lot of olay here cause the cost is still high and the different options out there with the R7 titanium. JMO

I heard the same.

I have an R7 titanium 15* and had a chance to pick one up a tour issued 15* R7 steel. Had the head in my hand and thought the head looked to small for my game. You have to a freakin ball stricker to tap into that head time after time. I preferr the larger head of the R7 titanium day after day.
