If you prefer your driver heads to be large then the R5 Dual driver is for you and it comes in two set ups to ensure it exactly matches your game.

The Type N version is set up with a neutral setting for all types of players. In testing the club sounded great and went even better.

The feel, ball flight and distance performance was excellent. For the better player then the R7 is probably a better club, but if your are on a budget then this is a great alternative for any level of golfer.

The type D version is set up to promote a draw (or reduce and slice!) and the resulting design changes do not make it as visually attractive as it's sister N version.

We found that the club did deliver in this respect and overall we really like the R5 driver as a club. It sounds good and the ball flight and distance performance was excellent.

There as an excellent range of good quality shafts so you should find the right one to suit your needs.

Decent club that gets the ball out there. Flight was a bit high for my liking and seemed to make the ball hang at the end of its flight. Sits well behind the ball and does give you a lot of confidence but just not for me.

I was pleasantly suprised by the TaylorMade R5 Dual driver. Having used TaylorMade's all my life I thought this was another high handicapper driver, but I think everyone can use the new R5 Dual driver. It looked great and sent the ball off on a great trajectory and you could hit it high and low. It's got the maximum allowable head size so it gives you lots of confidence and at much less than the TaylorMade R7 Quad driver, I think this is a better buy.
