TaylorMade is introducing the R9 460 driver, which is aimed at a broader spectrum of golfers, as well as the R9 460 TP for Tour pros and more skilled players.
Following February’s release of the 420 model, the new R9 driver will feature TaylorMade (opens in new tab)’s renowned Flight Control Technology (FCT) with the forgiveness and power of a 460cc titanium clubhead and the speed-promoting properties of a longer and extremely lightweight graphite shaft.
FCT gives players the power to easily change the club's face, loft and lie angle by loosening a bolt in the sole, rotating the shaft into the designated position, then tightening the bolt.
The TaylorMade R9 460 includes a white FCT wrench that delivers the 40 inch-pounds of torque necessary to adequately tighten the FCT bolt.
Compared to the R9 driver, the R9 460 driver has a larger head, deeper clubface and lower and deeper-back centre of gravity (CG), qualities that deliver a higher MOI for greater forgiveness and a higher spin-rate, helping low-spin players keep the ball in the air longer for increased carry and distance.
The R9 460 TP features the identical clubhead as the R9 460, but is equipped with a Fujikura Motore F1 65 graphite shaft with a .335" tip.
