Want to do a 10 year comparison? For the weekend golfer, most don't buy drivers that often. Would be exciting to see. Just now upgrading my driver from 07' Burner. The burner has treated me quite well over the years.

Rick Shiels Golf hi Rick, what would he really interesting imo is testing the tm drivers with the stock shafts. Using the same shaft makes the test of the head fair but the vast, vast majority of us amateurs buy a new driver with the stock shaft. From what you are showing in these tests is that there is practically no difference in performance of the heads so perhaps the shaft makes a bigger difference than head?

I would be super interested to see you flip this around and see you test one head with the stock shafts from each of the other 6 drivers.

I'm not a big equipment guy and have only changed irons 3 times and driver 4 times in 25 years. I had the sldr which was so much longer than the r5 I had before then moved to m2 when I tested and the dispersion was massively better. Exactly what you have just shown! I feel pretty smug for not getting sucked into buying all new gear all the time!

Love your vids mate and fair play for doing these tests...I can't see the manufacturers being too happy with you though haha
scott fraser
scott fraser - 3 years ago
Rick is right - the difference is both minimal and not worth the expensive outlay. I recently had the 2016 M1 and before that a 915 - went back to my Yonex from 2012 and hit it just as far and more consistently.

Rick the Taylor made drivers came in by around 10yds shorter on avg than the callaway drivers. Is there a specific reason for that? I see head speed was 2mph slower then the callaways? Can you do a comparison of the most recent 2 year model drivers from the top brands compared to each other? Might need to trade in my r15 for a callaway to get 10 yds more. Thanks for the awesome video.

Arvind Das
Arvind Das - 2 years ago
You know in business they have something called margin velocity . Taylormade follows that thir r &d is under so much pressure and the marketing guys are always shitting bricks bcos they have to keep selling the drivers! They make good products so do others i think even if u had hit the r 580 xd or r9 u would have got somilar results . The question is of the right fit ! Shaft head combo ! The weight orts were there in r5 dual the carbon crown is not a new tech cobra had it so did titleist and so did callaway! So whats new .The twist face so they claim everything you hit comes back to center ! Man thats bullocks ! And all the pga guys who are hitting it far and long are fitted by the company ! So in one line dont buy retail get yourself fitted.

Good vid, I have the Taylormade SLDR-S still to this day... I'm strictly a Callaway guy but crossed over to this driver ever since (driver only). Do you think the Callaway Sub Zero would compare to the SLDR-S? 5 to 10 yard baby fade with my SLDR, contol is perfect. Callaway next for the 5 year test.

Great test and very interesting results. However, I think it is hard to compare the R11S with the rest of the bunch because of the different shaft. Project X 3.3 shaft is very different than the Aldila Rogue 70 2.8. Also, it would be good to show the dispersion of each of the drivers as it is just as important as the distance.

Hi Rick, can you review a 2007 Taylormade Burner to compare the improvements made in 10 years? I see plenty of casual golfers still with this burner model, including myself. Would love to see the stat comparisons and would be quite compelling. Thanks!

For most of these tests the first years club you hit you hit really well. Is it because you hit it first? Every test has the same tendency.

Hi RickI'm a big fan of the TM M1 2016 drivers, but have notice that the paint on a number of head start to crack on the white crown. Is this just a bad paint job or has TM ratified the problem in the 2017 range? I currently play M1 2016, 8.5 - 430cc head .

Rick, any chance you could film or just post the number from the Taylormade r7 cgb max 460cc family of driver? I'm interested to see how it compares to the newer clubs you did in this video since it is from 2008 I believe and since I can't remember ever having better drives constantly with any other driver. Be cool to see if these last few years show a significant jump when you go back another 5 years or so in technology. No matter what do you have any experience with the r7 line up and what's your thoughts or impressions? Thanks.

Interesting video. I have played R15 for a year and a half, I "lofted up", and sometimes it feels like I'm cheating. There may be some that are longer, or some that are more forgiving, but for me, no better combination of the two than theR15. Halfway through my rounds, playing with whomever, they always want to see my driver.

Fascinating test, great content. I guess its ballistics in the end, if you put the same amount of energy into the ball it becomes about optimising the trajectory to achieve the best distance. I guess this is what the drive for low spin is about?

Great video Rick. Once again goes to show that consumers need to get fit by a solid professional fitter for an optimal shaft/head combo and stick with it. 5 years from now it's highly unlikely that driver will be obsolete given the current limits placed on manufacturers.
Bill Smith

Ball speed is all within a mile an hour, just differences in spin contributing to the total distance. Goes to show you how important a proper fitting is.

Great test Rick very interesting I suppose the distances are virtually the same the main improvement is slight miss hits don't get punished as much in 2016/17 models and probably a difference in feel and sound. What time are you off at Close House next Wednesday as I'm definitely coming up as it's just up the road from where I live. #British Masters.

I realize it would be even more difficult to find the drivers, but a comparison that stretched even farther back to compare significant changes that the whole industry went through would be interesting. Persimmon to early metal woods to vintage Pings (like you did a couple months ago) to early Callaway Big Bertha-style (like you and Pete did in your 2nd hand challenge a while back) through some of the more recent styles. With your swing consistency and ability to describe the hits, I think that would be an interesting video to watch.

Interesting results Rick, one thing to consider is the launch angle of each club. Given the spin numbers in the 2015-2017 clubs if you had the optimum launch you'd probably see improvements in carry etc . What this ultimately shows is the importance of being fit for clubs. Would be interesting to see the numbers if you optimised the settings on the M1 and M2.

Well, the RBZ was the best driver TaylorMade has made in the last 10 years. I have tried several other drivers and never gotten better numbers or feel. I switched to a Titleist driver this year only because I cracked my face on my RBZ and that is the first driver I have hit since the RBZ that made me want to switch. I wish you would have included the RBZ. Always been interested to see how other people hit that club.
Michael West
Michael West - 2 years ago
I have the 2007 burner and I've gotten pretty accurate with it without being fitted for it. I'm thinking 10 years later with a more modern driver, I could expect another 20-40 yards on average if I were properly fitted. Would love to see comparisons to 10 years+ drivers to see if there are some big number jumps.

I would prefer to see Ping next (please include the G and G 400), but I am sure we all want to see the major manufacturers.  I am not very surprised at the distance plateau from the last several years.  Also, this rather confirms to me that paying for a driver with all these adjustments is a waste of money - swing correctly and you will get the same distance and be able to work the ball.  Notice how the M2 (2017) has NO adjustments - is just as long, and you felt it was one of the most forgiving.

Rick, thanks for this great video. As for the results, what a surprise...there's little to no difference in five years of "technology." Certainly not enough to justify paying $500 for a new driver. Nevertheless, our US economy needs people to buy and spend on leisure goods like this, so please continue to keep buying!

Rick....thank you for coming up with video like this. The companies have been doing intensive marketing towards average players like us and pressuring us to buy new new new for more forgiveness and longer distance. After seeing ur comparison video, it's quite clear for us tht we do not need to keep changing our set every year. thank you very much!

Michael West

I agree. Us recreational golfers should really be focused more on accuracy than max distance. Weigh the two options together to make the best selection. It seems so far from all of the videos/reviews I've seen, the Titleist 917's are the most accurate when fitted (with all of the weight options for draw/fade/neutral settings). A little loss in distance to the the M1/M2 and the Big Bertha Sub Zero.

This is my problem with Callaway and Taylormade..44 drivers between the 2 in 5 years...
Every 6months its a new driver promising to be longer, they are essentially selling their best product while already designing one to superseed it.

When choosing a club brand i use Ping simply because of the 18month gap between new gear, its that piece of mind that your actually getting the best they have designed.

I basically went from the R5 to the R7 and enjoyed as good of distance as anything new from any manufacturer.
However after several Knee surgeries in the same knee including 2 replacements in a 2 year period of time because the first one broke, My swing speed went from 115mph to 85 to 90 tops and no more.
My lower half Flexibility is shot due to the Extreme pain in my knees that I will never get my speed back.
I them made the switch to the SLDR and while it did not give me my distance back it was for me easily 20 to 25 yards longer than anything else.
I went from Extra Stiff shafts in everything to Regular shafts.
But the good news is I was a low single digit handicap at 1 time and I am currently shooting in the low 80's , 80 - 83 most days.
So if your hurt keep it up and don't give up.
I will be Scratch and you can do it too.

Glad to have put that SLDR to rest and now have the callaway epic subzero!! Awesome Feel, extremely forgiving, long and great looking. Won't be leaving my bag for anytime soon.

Confirms while I'm still playing a SLDR, I took the original weight out and replaced it with 2 others who's total weight equals the original 1. Having the 2 weights makes the face much more stable and easier to control through the swing. Only driver I've hit that could push it out the bag is the M2.

I'm not going to post the text here (you can go and read it here USGA Equipment Rules - Guide to the Rules on Clubs and Balls ). They don't specifically talk about it but they do talk about external attachments which is what you have here.

The way I read it, the club with 2 sliding weights would have to be approved prior to use. It likely would be a "yup that's ok" from a USGA official or they may ask for a sample to test. Either way it likely would be ok in the end but don't show up at the US Am Finals with it and think it's automatically good.
Dave Parker
Dave Parker - 3 years ago
Still conforms, "the sliding weights are a specific design feature of the head and therefore allowed and not to be treated as an external attachment - which would be something outside the scope of the original design"
It's the same reason that if you order a Gbb Epic from Callaway customs and you've specified a shorter shaft. Callaway put an extra sliding weight in there, to adjust swing weight.

You mentioned that the driver face is regulated. For how long has the limits on the club head been the same as today? (My current driver is from 2005) Could you elaborate a bit on the regulation of the properties of the club face? I see that shifting the weight to different places within the club head makes a difference, but other than that, why buy a new driver?
Kevin Bostwick

I love how rick is all about distance and club head speed. His comment to start the video off is "the important column first to look at is club head speed." I would disagree and say the important column is efficiency or smash factor, all were pretty poor for a PGA pro IMO.

Rick touched on the main point to this whole test when he mentioned that the USGA regulates how fast a ball can come off the club face! He saw a max difference of 10 yards, but this was with a swing speed of 110mph. So if you are swinging slower than that you might see 4, 5, or 6 yards difference? No matter what make of driver Rick tests the results are going to be the same! The pro's win tournaments every week with a different brand of driver. Does anybody really thing one brand is better than the next! Seriously! So if you're going to buy a new driver, get it professionally fitted, and select the one that feels the best for your swing!

Would love to see you use the original shafts that the clubs came with because I believe that the reason clubs go further now that 5-10 years ago is that we have so many shafts options now. If you get an original rocketballz and use the stock shaft compared to the current shaft in your bag you would see a noticeable difference.
GAAkuma
GAAkuma - 3 years ago
I think you could improve, possibly by comparing similar Launch Angle with different drivers. The static loft doesn't mean anything. So you did R1 11 degrees, then R15 and SLDR at 13 degrees launch angle. 2 degrees launch angle, which is headed toward more ideal launch angle, is much further. So if the R11s and R1 were struck with more upward path, or lofted up, to be equal to around 13 degrees, I bet we would see all of these drivers perform in total distance very similar and then it would come down to as you pointed out, forgiveness. Thank you for reading

A little misleading?
In your m1 2016 vs 2017 video, you were hitting the 2016 m1 8 yards further with similar club speed & launch angle but had much less spin with the weight back, not even neutral.
You struck it better in that video, I believe.
Andreas Nilsson
Andreas Nilsson - 3 years ago
I love these videos! And I still play my old Mizuno driver which usually results in 2.2 to 2.4 krpm spin.

I have three comparisons I'd like to see; a) Mizuno drivers
b) A club-of-the-decade, for both irons and drivers from (19)-00 to (20)-20, so 12 clubs, and obviously with low compression balls (<55 comp)
c) 3-woods from the last oh ten or 15 years. I speculate there will be more advancements here than for drivers.

I got a set of basically brand new Mizuno MP33's from them for like £180, 3-PW. And they came packaged fantastically securely in about 4 days. If you wait 2 or 3 seasons you get full sets of irons at dirt cheap prices compared to original shelf price. In 3 years you will get the Mizuno MP18's for like £300.

Can you do the same but with irons, Ive just started playing and have Zing 2s looking at the loft specs my mates m2s are nearly two clubs stronger eg. Zing 2 5 iron is 27 degrees m2 5 iron is 21.5 (7iron is 28.5). I know this does not really mater as all that matters is how far I hit my clubs but still would be nice to see old clubs against modern lofted clubs. I mean are they easier to hit? Do they actually go further if you match the lofts as best as possible and not just hit a 5iron of each for instance? Thanks

Agree. At first was looking forward to seeing how the rbz/rbzs2 drivers stack up. Rick - take a minute to compare those drivers if you can. In the end, after you compile the Ping/Titleist/callaway numbers you can then compose a great comparison of all of the drivers in one list. That would be a welcome video analyzing all the drivers through the years to your swing.

I just watched you test the 2016 m1 last night. You were hitting it 325 to 330. Confused. I have watched lots of reviews with drivers and woods and hybrids. The average length with the drivers have been 300 to 305 with the longest hits on a few going 310 to 315. So when i was watching when the New M series showed up on the spec sheet.. I was like...um no. Having hit most of those drivers myself and watching other golfers also and seeing the major gains with the new M series I just cant buy into this review. It seems to be aimed at making all the drivers fairly even.

Is there any way to take metal fatigue into account? I see that some of the older clubs have significant wear on the sole of the club. I would be curious to see how a new driver would perform after a year of play and practice. Titanium is light and strong, but the thin face still makes it susceptible to metal fatigue. Perhaps we need a new driver just because of wear.

Interesting but not surprising really as the cor of drivers is governed other than moving cg about to change spin there's not much gains can be made.

Hey Rick, I'm looking at buying a full new set of clubs : M1 440, M113degree 3 wood, Titleist TMB 2iron, Mizuno mp18 SC (4-6), mizuno mp18 blade (7-pw), mizuno s18 wedges (50, 54, 58). Where i live there are no great fitting places or testing facilities (Italy) but I remember your videos from TourX fitting place and was wondering if it would be worth making a trip there to be fit? should i purchase the clubs and then get them fit there or should i go there, get fitted and then order the clubs with the numbers i get from there? i'm a 2 handicap. Just don't want to waste money by ordering the clubs without proper fittings. Thanks!

Your missing a important part of info, it's not only due to the lower backspin but you launch angles are up to 2degrees higher on the newest 4 drivers. Which shows they are both as important as each other. Low spin is only good with a higher launch and lots of clubhead speed.

It moves the CG (center of gravity) to where TaylorMade wants it to be (low and further away from the face). There's an M2 D-Type that has the weight closer to the heel to provide a bit of draw bias.
