The TaylorMade r7 460 TP driver incorporates TaylorMade's renowned Movable Weight Technology (MWT) into a 460 cc. The TaylorMade r7 460 TP driver's Movable Weight Technology gives players the power to change the clubhead's centre of gravity (CG) in order to promote different types of launch conditions and trajectories. The r7 460 TP driver is engineered with two MWT ports, one at the toe and one at the heel. Configuring the clubhead with more weight in the heel compared to the toe promotes a draw, while configuring the clubhead with more weight in the toe compared to the heel promotes a fade. The larger the weight discrepancy between the cartridges installed in the toe and heel weight ports, the more the trajectory should bend. The TaylorMade r7 460 TP driver and its four accompanying MWT cartridges offer 12 possible configurations, four of which are at standard swing weight.The TaylorMade r7 460 TP driver shares the same beautiful, authentic shape, size and high MOI as the r7 460 driver but a key difference between them, however, is that the r7 460 TP driver is engineered with a square clubface alignment, which is preferred by better players. The r7 460 TP driver is available in a choice of five RE*AX TP shafts, each of which combine high-end materials with a sophisticated design and construction to promote exceptional consistency and head stability at high clubhead speeds. The combination of the r7 460 driver's ultra-large clubhead and Movable Weight Technology was made possible by TaylorMade's Ultra-Thin Wall (UTW) technology, a casting process that allows for clubhead walls just 0.6 mm thick, which is fully 40‰ thinner than the walls of most competitive drivers and 25‰ thinner than the walls of the original r7 quad driver. The 10 grams saved by the r7 460 driver's drastically thinner walls contributes to the discretionary weight necessary to allow for Movable Weight Technology in the 460 cc clubhead. The r7 460 TP driver also features a small metallic swing weight plug permanently installed at the bottom-rear of the clubhead, between the MWT ports. Using plugs of differing weights allows TaylorMade engineers to simply and easily adjust the club's swing weight.The TaylorMade r7 460 TP driver is built via pull-face construction, wherein the clubface is made separately from the clubhead. That allows TaylorMade to cold-roll the clubface out of an exceptionally strong titanium alloy, resulting in an exceedingly fast, flexible and light clubface that bumps up against the USGA's limit for spring-like effect, .830. The r7 460 TP driver also features TaylorMade's groundbreaking Inverted Cone Technology (ICT). The Inverted Cone variable thickness profile, which is milled directly onto the inner side of the clubface, increases the size of the club's COR Zone, which is the portion of the clubface that delivers high COR (more than .800). That means that ICT allows a larger area of the face to deliver consistently higher ball velocity, resulting in consistently longer drives. An added advantage of ICT is that the exceptionally light clubface allows the saved weight to be put to use as discretionary weight.
