Great review!

The STR8-FIT adjustable tip sounds very exciting to me, I'll have to try it out.

Thanks.

Hi Tom,

I tried the Taylor Made R9 at a demo day and was fitted by the rep with reg-flex, 9.5 and 2 deg closed. I was getting a powerful drive and not losing the ball right (my normal fault).

I was using a Cleveland XLS reg flex, 10.5, 2 degrees open and was struggling with it. He explained that when the face is closed it actually adds loft which was the opposite of what I thought. I think I was keeping the face open on my Cleveland driver to compensate for the low ball and hence losing it right.

As I did not have the $$$'s to get the new R9 I have gone back to my old Cleveland Launcher while I wait for a drop in price before getting the R9.

Just another reason to go to a club fitter for your clubs.
