TaylorMade R15 Driver Review

The TaylorMade R15 Driver come in two sizes – 460 and 430 cubic centimeters and is made available in both white and black versions.  The latest in their line of “R” series drivers employs proven TaylorMade metalwood technologies that have been newly optimized: Inverted Cone Technology for an expanded sweet spot, Thick Thin Casting for low and forward center-of-gravity (CG), and a Loft Sleeve for maximum adjustability.

The new Front Track system performs like a Speed Pocket by reducing spin and increasing the size of the sweet spot, and new sliding split weights provide unmatched fine tuning. It allows players to position weight in draw or fade settings, as well as positioning the weights in either a middle position or extreme heel and toe locations for improved stability.

Compared to the SLDR, the R15’s sole channel has been shifted slightly closer to the face (12 millimeters) to contribute to the way the face flexes at impact The center of gravity is lower and more forward to promote a higher launch and lower spin, and the four-degree loft sleeve offers greater loft adjustability and the opportunity to dial in your ideal launch conditions. The R15 also utilizes an updated version of the company’s adjustable hosel, which now accommodates 12 settings and a loft range of plus/minus two degrees.

The ability to move more weight to the heel and toe, along with the stability setting makes the R15 attractive for golfers who require/desire shot shape correction in their driver.  The R15 driver is a quality driver that will be a strong contender for the number one sales position.

Ive still got the Taylormade R11 Driver in the bag and did go swing this a few times at the local golf shop.  The R15 does feel nice but would really like to hit it outside and see some ball flight and whats really going on.  Especially when it comes to the duel split weight slider adjustments.  Would be interested in swinging this some more in a couple of months when I go for an outdoor club fitting.

Have you been able to hit the R15 yet?  What do you think of it?  Let us know in the comments section below.  Hit em well and thanks for visiting RealGolfTalk.
