R7 Driver Reviews

By Eric Cornelison

Specs

The TaylorMade r7 driver is available for men in lofts of 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 degrees, standard or draw, all measuring 45.5 inches. These specifications are also available for left-handed golfers. Women can get the driver with a 10.5-degree loft only, measuring 44 inches. The r7 Draw features a REAX 55 shaft by Mitsubishi Rayon. Available flexes include stiff, regular and senior. A TaylorMade TGT grip is standard. Club head size is 400cc top 460cc. The club can be custom-fitted to your game.

Perks

Right to left spin helps with slices and the draw club head straightens out the worst slices. Very accurate on solid hits and the club does not twist open on toe hits. Weights can help with changing your trajectory.

Sacrifices

Feels the same on good hits, off-center hits and mishits. The thought was that there would be more distance-forgiveness on mishits, but the loss is severe. The r7's cosmetics can be a bit distracting.

Bottom Line

A good solid club for the high-handicapper, but a better player will want more feel than the r7 provides. Not the longest driver on the market.
