Hot on the heels of the hugely impressive R9 driver comes the TaylorMade R9 460 driver which combines the Flight Control Technology (FCT) of the R9 driver with the sheer power and wonderful forgiveness of a 460cc clubhead and a longer, lightweight graphite shaft to promote greater speed on every shot. Using Flight Control Technology any golfer can easily use the TaylorMade wrench to adjust the face angle, loft and lie of the R9 460 simply by loosening a bolt and rotating the shaft into the preferred position. This allows all golfers to enjoy a driver perfectly suited to their swing that promotes straighter and longer drives. The R9 460 also helps promote draws and fades with different settings allowing for a side to side trajectory change of up to 40 yards, with the same settings also helping to reduce hooks and slices.
Compared to the R9 driver the TaylorMade R9 460 driver has a larger clubhead which combines with a deeper clubface and lower centre of gravity to deliver a much higher MOI that promotes forgiveness and a higher spin rate. Despite the larger clubhead and the technological breakthroughs the R9 460 can still boast of the classic looks and beautiful design that TaylorMade drivers are renowned for.
The Inverted Cone technology that has won TaylorMade so many fans is also included in the R9 460 driver and helps to expand those areas of the clubface that deliver high speeds allowing even mis hits to retain their shape and distance. Each R9 driver comes equipped with an Aldila REAX 60 gram tip-soft shaft and measures 45.75 inches. This allows the R9 460 to deliver much greater clubhead speed which, in turn, promotes distance off the tee. Flight Control Technology ensures that players using the TaylorMade R9 460 can shape the shots they want but the club also delivers the length that the modern player demands.
