Their latest driver, the TaylorMade R9 driver adds an adjustable hosel to the moveable weight technology that has been so successful.

This is a real good driver and many shops are offering discount for golf purchasers who buy the R9 driver. What a seduction! But don't hurry, let's check out what Technologies have been applied to the TaylorMade R9 driver:

Flight Control Technology - This is a cool and upcoming technology. This allows the player to easily move or change loft, lie and face angle!

A Look at Burner Woods, Drivers and Ladies Burner Golf Clubs

The TaylorMade Burner Fairway Wood produces a higher, longer and more accurate shot
from the fairway.

Taylormade now offers a complete line of Burner golf clubs. In addition to their several driver models, in the spring of 2007, they released a complete lined of Burner Fairway woods and hybrids. The fairway woods are a 3 wood with a 15° loft, a 5 wood with an 16° loft and
