TaylorMade r7 CGB MAX Limited Driver


There is often a lot of talk of ‘reinventing the golf driver market’ but TaylorMade’s 2008 range features a new golf club that has good reason for laying claim to such a lofty title.

The company’s TaylorMade r7 CGB MAX Limited driver hits the golf shops this year and promises to hand golfers the ultimate fully customisable driver.

As you can see from the images of the new golf club it comes as a component set festuring nine changeable weights and three changeable shafts for the ultimate in adjustable golf club options.

TaylorMade has been the leader in golf club adjustability since 2004 when the company launched the revolutionary r7 quad driver, the first golf club to incorporate Movable Weight Technology. Since then TaylorMade has developed a variety of clubs with MWT including drivers, fairway woods, Rescue hybrids and putters.

“Because different shafts promote different launch conditions, TaylorMade SelectFit Technology gives golfers the power to customise the driver and optimise the character of their shots by changing shafts,” said Sean Toulon, TaylorMade’s Executive Vice President of Innovation and Product Creation. “When you combine that with the shot-changing influence of TaylorMade’s Movable Weight Technology, you’ll find that the r7 CGB MAX Limited gives you more control over the shape and trajectory of your shots than any other driver.”

The TaylorMade r7 CGB MAX Limited kit comes in it’s own box and includes a newly-developed titanium club head with three movable weight ports; three shafts, with distinctly different launch properties; two shaft-securing bolts; one  torque wrench; nine movable weights and one headcover.

Each of the high-end, tour-proven shafts that come with the r7 CGB MAX Limited driver feature a distinctively different design to deliver a distinctly different type of performance. TaylorMade SelectFit Technology was developed to give golfers the ability to easily use these different shafts with the same clubhead. The shafts are secured to the clubhead with a single bolt, using the specially designed r7 CGB MAX Limited torque wrench and the benefits of each one is explained below:

The Fujikura Rombax shaft

This shaft is standard-weight (75 grams) with a medium-firm tip, and is engineered to deliver low spin and a medium launch angle. It features Fujikura’s renowned Rombax technology for increased stability and consistency.

The Mitsubishi Diamana White Board shaft

This shaft is lightweight (65 grams) with a firm tip and mid-section, and a softer butt-section. It’s engineered to deliver exceptional stability through impact, reduced spin, a lower launch angle and excellent feel.

The Matrix Ozik XCon shaft

This golf club shaft is ultra-light (55 grams) with a medium-soft tip, and is engineered to deliver added kick through impact and to promote a high launch angle and low spin-rate. It incorporates Matrix X-Axis Control to lower torque and increase stability.

In general, heavier shafts promote increased accuracy and control for players with high swing speeds, while lighter shafts promote faster swing speed for increased distance. Firm-tipped shafts can help aggressive swingers to attain a lower ball flight and discourage a right-to-left trajectory, both of which promote added control and accuracy. Medium- and softer-tipped shafts can help smoother swingers launch the ball on a higher trajectory.
