First look Reviews of TaylorMade R1 Driver 
By DanielBush on Jan 11, 2013 07:15 AM
For most golfers, the phrase one-size-fits-all has only been a facet to consider when purchasing a cap. That was before TaylorMade unleashed its unique TaylorMade R1 Driver to the world in 2013, a club that features - yes you guessed it - one loft. Hats off, indeed.

With last season’s cheap r11s driver, the company offered us a white-crowned club that let them change the effective loft, face angle and weight bias. One of the biggest and most impressive differences between the R11S and this sportier R1 is independent loft adjustability.

There’s nothing worse than heading to a pro shop, taping up a new driver before handing over some dollar and then realising a week later you should have gone higher than an 8. From a recent survey conducted by TaylorMade, results showed 80% of golfers are currently playing the wrong loft to match their game. With the R1, there are no such problems.

Take out the wrench and trial out different lofts from 8- to 12-degree including two upright positions before dialling into your desired launch angle. An easy-to-use, small dial on the hosel allows you to change the loft in half-degree increments, which was also quite good fun to play around with.

The new loft sleeve was designed in conjunction with the TaylorMade R1 Fairway Wood’s revamped adjustable sole plate with seven different settings that can change the face angle as much as 3-degree open or closed in 1-degree increments – forming yet another upgrade on its predecessor that offered just five settings in 1.5-degree increments.
