Went to a demo days at the local country club and hit the M1 and liked it. Was able to also hit the R15 430 later and hit it the same as the M1. Both clubs are incredible and for a couple of hundred dollars less it is a no brainer. The club head adjustments are noticeable and you'll find that you can tweak your ball flight. I love it! Thanks TaylorMade for a great driver.
I thought the SLDR was a long driver. I played the SLDR until the R15 beat it. The R15 gave me higher ball speeds and also more distance than the SLDR. The R15 is way more forgiving than the SLDR too. The best of both worlds. Coming from the SLDR, transitioning to playing the R15 was easy. I even use the same TP shaft from the SLDR in my R15.
I have been through several drivers trying to replace an old Ping i20 with tour issue VTS silver shaft. I got the R15 460 TP with a UST chrome xstiff and my drviing is back. The club has ample amout of forgiveness and lives up to the mid to high launch low spin hype. I took the combo out recently and ran out of fairway on a few holes. Getting fit for the right shaft is key as the factory option might not fit you.
Wow! What a great Driver! Looks so good and feels even better when you swing it. I had mine trimmed by taylormade an inch and it is still really long off the tee. It is so forgiving as well. I thought how could they top the sldr, but they did with this beauty. I recommend to anyone who wants to get in the fairway.
Was at demo day pounding all brands of drivers to no avail. Taylor made rep came over and said try this...a mini driver. Hit 5 balls and ordered it.nSame ball flight and height pattern. No more snap hooks off the tee with my 460cc driver! Played 4 rounds with the mini driver and have hit 44/56 fairways and the add'l misses have only been off the fairway a few yards. Have hit the club off the deck only twice with good results. A real handicap reducer!
I was having trouble with the bigger head 460cc drivers keeping them in play off the tee. I used my 3 wood more and more off the tee just to get something in the fairway, but still having a longer shot in to the green, I wanted a little more distance with control. When I tested this in the simulator I had to have one. According to the sim my longest drive after the roll was 295, with a ball speed of 160 mph. So if you are thinking you are going to sacrifice distance off the tee, don't! I am now in the fairway more than ever with this club. I hit it high, so went with a stiff flex, 12 degree and am loving more and more every round I play. If you don't want to swing a mailbox on a stick, go get one of these today!
Very explosive off the face, more so than the SLDR. I have owned pretty much every TM driver since the 300, and this is hands down the best driver they have built. My only complaint is that I wish it were offered in black like the 460 version. Fuji Speeder Evolution 757 Tour Spec is also a great compliment to this driver.
