TaylorMade R1 Black Driver

The TaylorMade R1 Black Driver is the one driver model that can be tuned to fit Tour pros and amateurs alike. Shot-shaping movable weights promote a neutral/straight flight or a distance-enhancing draw, and improved aerodynamics reduce drag over the head to promote faster clubhead speed. The thick-thin crown provides a lower and more-forward center of gravity location, thus promoting a higher launch, faster ball speed, and lower spin. Inverted Cone technology milled into the inner side of the clubface expands the portion of the face that delivers high ball speed.

R1 Loft Sleeve

The R1 Loft Sleeve features 12 different settings.

R1 Sole Plate

The R1 Sole Plate features seven possible positions for a ±4° face angle adjustment.

Additional features:

  • Seven standard and five upright loft options between 8-degrees and 12-degrees (+/- 2 degrees) to obtain optimal launch angle
  • Seven face angle options: N/square, open, medium-open, maximum-open, closed, medium-closed, maximum-closed
  • Black clubface, non-glare black crown, and monochromatic crown graphic together promote easy alignment
  • Aldila RIP Phenom shaft promotes faster clubhead speed while delivering greater feel than typical ultra-light shafts

Rated 5 out of 5 by taylor made R1 very good hit the ball awesome right off the get go November 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Driver I have tried several drivers over the years. This is the first driver that I can come close to using consistently. It has a great feel. The adjustability is super and I am finally able to keep it in the fairway. November 6, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by What a disappointment It had been some time since I purchased a new driver. I was using the old R540 for many years and was tired of watching everyone else hit these new gigantic drivers. I went to GS and tested the R1 and the SLDR both with original stiff shafts. I seemed to hit the R1 better, so I figured I would give it a try. I am sorry to all the R1 lovers out there, but this thing feels like you are hitting an empty beer can on a stick. It is a horrible feeling and sound that I just couldn't deal with. I was hitting the ball better than my old one, but the spin I was getting was just as bad. Thanks to the GS 30 day playability, I was able to get rid of it. I plan on spending a lot of time in the bay trying the Ping, Titleist, Nike, and Callaway hoping for the right fit. R1 was not it for me. September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best TM driver yet Really enjoy hitting balls with this driver, sending them further than I have ever done before. Have made minor adjustments and am hitting drives straighter, longer and with more confidence. This club greatly reduces sidespin and backspin The ability to dial in settings until you achieve the proper ball flight for your game is priceless. The fit and finish of the Black R1 is fantastic too. I didn't care for the look of the white R1 with racing stripes, so I was glad to see if come out in black. Been playing the R11S, this new club is about 10 / 15 yards longer for me and more forgiving. August 28, 2013
