TaylorMade R7 TP Ti Fairway Wood with Reax Shaft

The TaylorMade R7 TP Titanium Fairway wood is the TaylorMade’s most recent addition to its adjustable weight family, which has been astoundingly popular on tour, winning bag count after bag count.

The TP models are the same clubs that are used by the Tour Players—as TaylorMade says: Not “almost like”, not “similar to”, exactly the same.

That being said, it would be easy to assume that these clubs are only for the best of players. But I’ve found that’s not true. I play with both a TP driver and a TP 3 wood, and both are well-suited for my game as a 12 – 15 handicapper. Their best attribute is their forgiveness. Even bad swings result in adequate results.

The R7 TP TI was created for tour palyers who wanted the look of the popular V Steel with the movable weight technology of the R5s. The dual TaylorMade Launch Control (TLC) ports change the club’s center of gravity to promote a fade or a draw. The spacing of the weights also boosts the club’s moment of intertia (resistance to twisting) for better results on mis-hits. The club also kept its V Steel heritage with the V-shaped sole to reduce turf resistance.

The other new innovation is TaylorMade’s new RE*AX shart, which was designed in conjunction with Fujikura. The shaft is supposed to resist deformation during the swing, resulting in straighter, longer ball flight.
