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.

    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
