Introduced in 2009, the R9 driver incorporates TaylorMade's "Flight Control Technology" with their Movable Weight Technology, yielding 24 different weight-loft-lie combinations adjustable by the end user.
Available in 8.5° (RH only, 418 cc), 9.5°, and 10.5° models with a 45" shaft, D4 swing-weight, and a 59° lie angle standard.
EZrider - 5/3/12 I'm very impressed with the Taylormade Burner, I like the R9 and R11, but my game has been steadily improving, as well. I went from a 10.5 loft to a 9.5, because I hit it so high. I still hit it high, but about 20 yds longer.
Stampede Mike - 1/16/12 Tried the R11 did not like it so I went back to my R9. Did not see any improvement with the R11.
Rourkus - 4/12/11 I do like this driver although I am seriously considering the Cleveland 270.
mp_au - 9/20/09 Great idea executed well. Fits my current swing style, and as the lessons kick in i'm able to open the face more to reduce the compensation i've added to counteract my slice. Saves me from buying another driver when flaws are corrected. Feels very sturdy, smaller that 460cc head does feel less drag-y through the backswing. Does play a little shorted though even with the increased straightness i get.
