TaylorMade introduces r7 Limited driver

Posted at 11:18 AM by David Dusek | Categories: Drivers, TaylorMade

R7_limited_600 TaylorMade announced today that a new driver, the r7 Limited, will be released on September 15. Like previous r7 models, the Limited features a system of movable weights that allow golfers to change the playing characteristics of the driver. (Click on the top image for more detailed look.)

The club comes with one 16-gram weight and two 1-gram weights. Placing a 16-gram weight in the heel promotes a draw; putting it in the toe promotes a fade.

According to TaylorMade, the Limited promotes a change of up to 35 yards from side-to-side, seven yards wider than the range of the r7 SuperQuad. It is also longer from front to back than the SuperQuad, with a lower center of gravity, which TaylorMade says will make it easier to hit high, long drives. In addition, the TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad and CGB Max drivers have a draw bias, the Limited Edition has a neutral face.

R7_le_sole_600x600A special version of the r7 Limited is being made in conjunction with Patriot Golf Day, which will take place over Labor Day weekend. (Click on  bottom image  for a better look.) During that time, golfers across the United States will be encouraged to contribute $1 when they play at designated courses. All the funds will go to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships for families of soldiers who have been disabled or killed in the line of duty.

The Patriot Golf Day Web site has a complete list of all the courses participating in every state, and at those clubs you can learn more about how to get one of the few r7 Limited commemorative drivers. TayorMade is donating all the proceeds from the Patriot Golf Day version to the Folds of Honor Foundation.

The r7 Limited will cost $500.
