NCG tests: TaylorMade R1 TP driver

NCG's team of experts review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the TaylorMade R1 TP driver..
 

Testers’ comments

JL: I was fine with the normal shaft and spun it a little less with the TP one. I preferred this as a driver to the RocketBallz. There’s a lot going on with the head, which I didn’t like. It feels very weighty in the neck.

JW: It’s easy to hit, surprisingly so. The sound is quite ‘thunky’. I don’t like the graphics on the top but it does fly well.

DM: I really want to like this driver but the truth is I just can’t seem to get consistently outstanding performance out of it no matter what I do with the set up.

The details

SRP: £399
W: taylormadegolf.eu
TESTERS: James Whitaker (JW, pro), Johnny Lawrence (JL, scratch), Dan Murphy (DM, 4)
