TaylorMade R9 Driver Specifications
Launched in the spring of 2009 the TaylorMade R9 Driver
reaches new heights in golf driver design. Moving on from the Movable
Weight Technology (MCT) that was first introduced in the R7 Quad driver
back in 2004, Taylor Made have gone one step further and now incorporate
what is known as Flight Control Technology or FTC for short.
It's not uncommon for Tour Players to have their clubs tweaked on a
regular basis by their dedicated Tour Technicians. This is not a
feasible option for the club player but now with the Taylor Made R9 in
the bag it is now possible to set up the driver to the players
individual swing characteristics.
FCT + MWT = 24 flight combinations
By combining MCT and
FCT the new Taylormade R9 driver can support up to 24 combinations of
driver loft, lie and head weight distribution in one club.
Making the adjustments to the Taylormade R9 driver is a
simple process and takes only seconds to customise the club to your
desired combination. By using the supplied wrench the R9 driver can be
tweaked to get the ultimate performance.
Adjustments to the R9 driver is a two stage process. Firstly by using
the special tool it is possible to completely remove the head from the
shaft. The tip of the shaft has a set of collars that can be twisted to 8
different positions, each one conforming to a specific flight
characteristic. The head is then re-attached to the club shaft and
secured using the wrench. The second stage involves the weights that are
situated at the rear of the driver head. Here you will find 3 weights,
two 1 gram weights and one 16 gram weight. By moving the weights into
different positions it is now possible to alter the ball flight even
The club comes with a manual that fully explains the process of getting the R9 finely tuned to the players requirements.
