Taylor Made Weighted Clubs

Recommended Posts

Oh my.....I recently traded in my Nicklaus Hybrid 24 degree whcih icouldnt hit straight worth a lick for a TM Dual Rescue 22 degree. I cant do anythign but hit this thing straight with the draw optiuon set...its amazing.....then I decided to dump my old TM Bruner Bubble fairfway woods....I hit them failry well with a slight fade most fo the time.....high trajectory....well I went with the new R7 FW and damn if I dont hit these things dead straight with a nice trajectory dead straight all the time. Only my absolute worse swings send the ball astray and to the right. These are amazing clubs. Now for my big dilemma. I play a Cobra SZ 460 9,0 degree driver...i am very inconsistent with driver.....often fade sometiems slice.....is it worht it for me to go to a weighted driver liek the new R7 460 or veen a lower cost club liek the Adams Dual 460? NAy info, feedback you might have on these clubs would be appreciated1

 

 

Thanks!

I'd take a 40$ lesson that will help you more in the end than a new 400$ driver....just my thoughts...

 

Touche'

 

But if you are going to go for the club, definitely worth at least testing the Adams. For the price they can be got at compared to the TaylorMades, they can't be beat IMO.

Every club ever built has been wieghted. The vast majority on the market today are wieghted to be draw biased. If you haven't changed the weights in any of the TM products then there are a number of clubs that would likely work well for you. TM has just made the weighting "visual". It's called "visual technology", designed to make you think they've come out with something entirely new but in reality the movable weights really only serve the player who is looking for a fade bias.

 

I wouldn't limit your search to TM based on the fact that they have weighted clubs. The same weighting is inside of all drivers on the market.

 

 

Ya know, your right. The Cobra not only is draw biased with somedegree of weighting, perhaps not to the extent of the TM 570 or the Adams, but it is about 3.0 degrees closed I think. Perhpas my sudden troubles reappaering have just made me a bit antsy.

First things first. If you are going to ask for advice, please do the people here the courtesy of phrasing your question in some kind of English, and of spell-checking it. Separating... your thoughts... like this... is hard to... understand....

 

However, after re-reading your post a couple of times, I'd have to say you are right. Most clubs go the same distance and you will not get much more from any one over the other. The big difference is in straightness and trajectory.

 

Your R7 has a draw bias, which with your swing helps you hit it straight. The Dual has a draw bias as well, to which you have added the draw weights. And you hit it straight. There is a lesson there.

 

On the other hand, from what you say, you hit your driver consistently right, or with a fade/slice.

 

You should get a driver that helps you avoid this problem. I wouldn't suggest an R7 460, as the 460cc drivers tend to go right on most people (which is why they come with closed faces). An R7 425 would probably be much more suitable and cheaper.

 

But you may be even better suited by a Cobra F Speed, or even an offset driver like a Ping G5. I've been fiddling with them myself, and, except on the worse swings, they totally take out the right hand side. With the right shaft, you can just smash them and know they will draw back.

 

On the down side, if you have an occasional pull or hook, you are stuffed.

 

Weights have an affect, but not as much as a closed face.

 

For myself, I draw/hook all my irons and being on the right hand side of a fairway is never good. I'd rather be in the rough or trees to the left where I know I can manufactur a hook than right where I will have to either hit over trees or pitch on a diagonal.

 

So get a driver that suits your swing and helps you avoid your worst miss.

 

If your slice/fade is really bad, the Cobra M Speed is worth checking out as a last resort. It is a club that is impossible to hit right.

 

 

Cheers

Sorry for the typos, however sometimes trying to post with a 1 and half year old and 3 year old hanging on you isnt that easy!

 

As for the driver, I currently am playing a Cobra SZ 460 9.0 with the stock Aldila NV shaft. I guess I was just throwing around the question as to if the TM R7 460 and or Adams Dual 460 with the movable weight option were better clubs with regard to the weighting for draw bias versus the internal weight set and closed face of the Cobra SZ460. Perhaps there really is no difference between the clubs. Fact is that when I swing the club well its pretty straight, just had a htough if the other were better would I gain some degree of consistency.

I think its worth mentioning that in the R7 line...changing the weighting in the 425 seems to have much more effect than in the 460. The 460 has such a high MOI that changing the weights just dosn't do much. But in the 425 there's a dramatic difference. I recently picked up the 425 w/ Diamana Blue 65 gram stiff and can attest that changing the weighting from neutral to draw has an obvious impact on ball flight.
