golf, sporting goods
The TaylorMade R9 SuperTri Driver ($254; Degree: 9.5° / 10.5°, Flex: Regular / Stiff, Material: Graphite) features a long-hitting trifecta of Movable Weight Technology, Flight Control Technology, and an oversized 460cc head, giving golfers a club that's more forgiving, yet longer and more versatile. Other key features include Inverted Cone Technology for more distance on off-center hits, a Fujikura Motore 60-gram shaft that makes it easier to get the ball up in the air and spinning for longer carry, and a more aerodynamic head for increased club head speed.
FCT + MWT + 460cc = Supreme Adjustability, Distance and Forgiveness
The impact of incorporating FCT and MWT into a 460cc head is enormous. The larger head is more forgiving, and its CG is two millimeters farther back in the head than the Taylormade R9 driver, making it easier to launch the ball higher and with more spin, helping players gain more distance. At the same time, the inclusion of MWT with three weights promotes a side-to-side trajectory change of up to 75 yards.
TaylorMade R9 SuperTri Driver Reviews, Good looking and easy to hit The TaylorMade R9 SuperTri Driver will fit a wide range of players. Forgiving without the bulk. The head frames the ball nicely at address. It looks more sharper and less rounded than the R9 460. The feel and sound is similar to a crushing can. But less of the tinny affect of previous TM drivers. The Supertri glides through the air easily and it doesn't overwhelm the player. I shortened mine to 45 inches, and it refreshingly appears shorter than other 45 length drivers. Easy to control, fun to hit. I haven't changed the adjustable neck, but I've built my shafts with the FCT sleeve. A cool concept to be able to swap shafts yourself. best investment ever!! Taylormade has the best drivers in the industry and over the past 7 years, this is by far, their best one yet. It's even better than the Taylormade R11 driver and it's not white. I've gone from the R5, to the R7, and all the models of the R9 and none can surpass this one. This is a 'best buy' that can be adjusted to give you a long and straight ball flight, guarantee!!
