The TaylorMade R7 Quad driver is the first in the line of what we think will be the future of all clubs, namely adjustable weights.
We tried this driver in a variety of weight combinations and the flight of the shots did vary accordingly so it can be set up to suit any swing.
Don't get us wrong, it won't correct your swing faults - you still need a coach for that - but it will lower or raise your ball flight, or create a slight draw or fade, depending on what you are looking for.
Obviously if you are happy with the standard setting then you may not need all this versatility. However you are still left with a very competent club that looks good, sounds good and is very easy to hit.
The 410cc head looks small at address compared to the maximum 460cc clubs on the market, but that does not affect performance and may be more appealing to the eye of some players.
There is a good range of standard and custom shafts for the R7 Quad and we would recommend shaft custom fitting for what will be a healthy investment in one club.
However it looks great and if money is no object then we think the TaylorMade R7 Quad driver is the best in the market.
Tip though - check for conforming versions which have 'R7' on the top left of the face. Non-conforming versions have 'Max' instead, but are rarely found in the UK.
