TaylorMade must really like their "r7" logo because they're sticking it on everything these days. Just recently they announced "r7 irons," their r7 driver line (Quad, HT, and TP) continues to sell well, and earlier this spring the r7 TP fairway woods were announced. It's taken us awhile to get this review online because, with a $399 price tag, the r7 TP fairway wood isn't one that your average golfer is going to want to try.
Make no mistake about it, this club - like most of TaylorMade's "TP" or "Tour Preferred" line - is for the better player.
Better players who do put this club in their bags will find one of the best fairway metals on the market today. They'll also find their wallets four bills lighter. Read on to see whether I felt the performance justified the cost.
