The TaylorMade R7 TP fairway wood incorporates TaylorMade Launch Control (TLC), a revolutionary technology that gives players the power to change the clubhead's centre of gravity (CG) location to promote different types of trajectories. The R7 TP is a titanium fairway wood engineered with two TLC ports positioned low in the back of the clubhead, near the heel and toe. Installing TLC cartridges of differing weights in the TLC ports allows the player to move the clubhead's CG toward either the toe or heel to promote varying degrees of draw bias and fade bias, as well as to promote a neutral, or straight, ball flight. Included with the R7 TP fairway are four TLC cartridges a 2-gram cartridge, two 8-gram cartridges and a 14-gram cartridge. The TLC Wrench, which is necessary to remove and install TLC cartridges is not included but can also be purchased separately at TaylorMade retailers. To save the weight necessary to incorporate TLC into the R7 TP, titanium construction was required. Titanium's lower density allowed TaylorMade engineers to create a lower and deeper inherent CG location in the R7 TP as compared to the V Steel. The R7 TP's inherently low and deep CG works with TLC technology to create new CG positions that dramatically and positively alter the ball's trajectory. The R7 TP fairway woods boast the same moment of inertia (MOI) as the V-Steel, which is unusual since a titanium wood sized similarly to a steel wood generally delivers a lower MOI, because titanium weighs less. However, by spacing the R7 TP's TLC ports and TLC cartridges widely, TaylorMade engineers were able to boost the clubhead's MOI high enough to equal the V Steel. Meaning that, like the V Steel, the R7 TP delivers excellent forgiveness on mis-hits. The use of titanium as a clubhead material also allowed TaylorMade engineers to lower the center of gravity (CG) and move it farther back in the head, helping to make the R7 TP more playable from a wide variety of conditions. Additionally, the R7 TP features a refined version of the V-shaped sole employed by the TaylorMade V Steel. Shaping the sole like a V results in diminished turf-resistance, resulting in increased playability and power. Stock shafts include Fujikura Vista Pro 80 (graphite) and Dynamic Gold (steel). Both are available in extra stiff, stiff and regular flexes. Like other members of TaylorMade's TP line, R7 TP fairway woods will feature a special badge on the toe to make it easily identifiable as a TP product.
