The tour version has a shaft upgrade and is $200 more expensive. Really nice driver, but I got better performance out of a MP-600 which cost $399 instead of $599. I know that people are all into the new shaft technology lately, so that may be your thing.

Not to steal this thread but I have a question that is on similar lines. I was talking to a sales-woman at a local golf store and she was talking about drivers. She made a statement to the likes of "tour faces are denoted by the '.5' in a drivers degree and has flatter face angle?" Is it true that a 9.5* is actually less of a degree than a 9* driver? Or is this lady all washed up?

Take this message for what it's worth.....I've played the original r7 TP, the Superquad TP, the Tour Burner TP, and the r7 Limited. I never tried the 07 Burner Series because I just couldn't get used to the looks of the head. But alot of guys that work in shops I know still say that the 07 Burner TP is the furthest hitting driver from Taylormade ever made. However, of those drivers I have played with, I can say that the Tour Burner TP is the one that impresses me the most. I've hit the Tour Burner TP with the Diamana White Board and Fujikure Rombax. The Rombax is a better shaft for somebody who has a very fluid, smooth back and forth swing. The diamana is more for somebody who likes to go at the ball. I played the r7 Superquad TP with an aldila nv green 65S and a UST Pro Force V2 65S. Both of those shafts were great combinations with that head. The original r7 quad TP I don't need to go into because I think everybody knows that driver started it all for the innovation of the drivers these days with the adjustable weights. The r7 Limited is a beautiful looking club, and has a very responsive feel to it. If your looking for consistency and your not concerned about distance then the r7 Limited is for you, if your looking for distance, and you have a accurate swing to begin with, then i'd recommend the Tour burner TP. I havent tried the Burner 09 yet because I just thinks it's hideous.

i have heard the same about the 07 burner tp being the longest, but i still am curious to what the difference is with that vs. the tour burner tp. Anyone know?

well the regular burner tp is a lighter club than the tour burner tp and the shaft is different. The regular burner tp is actually what i used to play and i hit it about 270 and im only 14. The tour burner is a lot harder to hit, unless you have a flawless swing.

      The faces are unsupported and sit on a hollow cavity inside the club. It's unsupported to allow it to flex more for ballspeed. Unfortunately, that can cause it to break more easily. Basically, it's like punching through drywall: it's easier to break through when the wall behind it is empty than if it's attached to a brick wall.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Of course he is entitled to his opinion.  But when he lards it with attempts at bolstering his opinion with stuff like "I saw Jack play", and "He was nice at a clinic" and challenges people as to whether other people saw Jack play like he did and just where did you see him play . . .  well then scorn comes into play.  Especially when his claim is not just that Jack is better, but he claims that Jack is " by far the best".   By far?  Really?  There is an assessment I hadn't previously seen in the thread even from the most avid Jack supporters.  One can argue for Jack rationally, but claiming he is 'by far" the best, and adducing as evidence the facts that a) he saw him play, b) Tiger is not winning now, c) Jack was nice the time he saw him at the driving range?  Is that remotely a rational argument?  Not to mention this little piece of . . I don't know what:  " What is Tiger doing now? He sure is not winning. His historical achievements are nice but they don't win tournaments."  means or has anything to do with anything.  I mean, replace the word Tiger with Jack and it is equally true and equally besides the point.  So your criticism is completely off base.  Reasonable people certainly can disagree.  There is a difference between scorn at someone's opinion, and scorn at the reasoning process they claim as the basis of their opinion.  He gets his opinion for free. But his facts and reasoning, should he choose to share them as he did, are subject to logical analysis and challenge.  You are free to like chocolate, but if you give your reason for liking it as "my favorite hat is brown and so is chocolate" then people will look askance at you.  As they should.

      I would expect them to just replace the one club. That's what warranty is for, defects in material or workmanship and if they determine there is a defect in that club I would expect it will be replaced.

      Sorry it's the xr standard irons from last year. What would cause the crack?
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Hey guys and gals! I need some help reducing or preferably eliminating my blowup holes. Im currently playing some of the best golf of my life but the blowup holes are killing any chances of shooting a good number. I aim for bogey golf and usually see 3-5 pars per round with the occasional birdie. I consider bogies good holes and average 6-8 of those a round. But the doubles and triples are destroying my card. Can anybody help me with this?
