Hi All,

I'm looking to upgrade all of my woods to TaylorMade Superfasts.  My question is, what is the biggest difference in the SuperFast series and the SuperFast 2.0?  I would, ideally, love to buy all 2.0's but may be limited to a smaller budget.  Is there a vast difference in performance between them?

I still have to hit the original SuperFast's so I understand it's all about what feels right....just looking for some opinions.

Thanks

I dont know the difference but I have the original superfast and love it. Also i was just on TGW and the drivers are going for 130 brand new and woods 100 i believe.

The feel, look and sound are much more noticable than the performance difference.  I really liked the Superfast TP 1.0.

IDK what hes talking about. I love the sound of the original superfast.

The differences are pretty marginal. Outside the obvious paint color difference, I believe the only real differences are shaft offerings. I've hit them both (unfortunately not side-by-side) but haven't found a reason to get a 2.0 version over my 1.0.

Don't forget about TM's ridiculous product cycle...if you really want the white ones, just wait another 6-8 months when they drop something new on us and all the club ho's start selling off all their "old" equipment.

I did not say one was better than the other.  I in fact prefer the sound and feel of the older model, too.

Not sure how I missed this thread but I accidently created a new one on the same subject, oh well.

The 2.0 has a slight tweek on the head design, with a slightly lighter shaft and grip. That all adds up to 5 yards more on the driver, a 2% increase on distance. The average price difference ranges from 30%-40% more for a 2.0 version over the 2010 model. 2% increase in performance does not add up to 40% increase in price. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I ended up finding the TaylorMade Superfast (1.0) at my local Golf Galaxy used for 40$.  It is in great condition and a new grip so I guess my patience worked out.

I was a bit upset that I couldn't get an accurate result in the simulator with it.  I was hoping to get a good idea for distances with it but the sim results were that I was hitting it 350+ yards.  I was getting all of the ball....but I'm a realist.

Ya those things you have to take with a grain of salt. My ss is around 105 and Im usually hitting 270-300 depending on draw fade wind and what not. I do have a different shaft though. I love it and just when I think about dropping money on like a newer used driver like the 909 I realize there is a good chance i lose distance cuz this thing is a beast really.

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
