TaylorMade R15 fairway woods and hybrids have been launched in conjunction with the new R15 driver
The R15 fairway is the brand’s first to feature the sliding-weight technology that made its debut in the SLDR driver.
This comes in the form of a Front Track system, which acts like a speed pocket – enabling the face to flex, thus increasing ball speeds and the size of the sweet spot – while also featuring a moveable 25-gram weight.
This can be pushed towards to heel to encourage a draw and towards the toe to promote a fade.
All TaylorMade R15 woods comes in both a standard and a TP version.
The fairways also feature TaylorMade’s Adjustable Loft Sleeve, which offers 4° of loft adjustability, allowing golfers to fine-tune their trajectory.
The TaylorMade R15 rescue, meanwhile, also boasts 3° of adjustability through the hosel.
A new tour-inspired compact shape is coupled with a smaller surface area to make it more playable from a number of different lies.
The 165cc R15 fairway ranges from a 15-degree 3-wood to a high-launch 20.5-degree 5-wood.
The 96cc rescue starts in a 17-degree 2-iron replacement and is available through to a 24-degree 5-iron replacement model.
The TaylorMade R15 fairway and hybrid models come with a version of Fujikura’s Speeder shaft and Lamkin UTx grips.
