I have become somewhat of a reluctant expert on Taylormade Tour Burner counterfeits. After nearly getting burned (no pun intended) by a seller who was drop shipping counterfeits from China I was fortunate enough to buy a legitimate authentic Tour Burner from an authorized reseller. The experience has left me much more aware of all the counterfeits on Ebay and how to identify the obvious fakes. The Tour Burner, unlike the Tour Burner TP comes with only 1 stock Taylormade shaft, that shaft is the 60g Fujikura Speedshaft with a checkerboard background pattern. It also comes with a Taylormade Tour Velvet lite grip, with no graphics other than the Taylormade name on the underside bottom of the grip. In their haste to rush out their fakes the counterfeiters used the graphics, weight, and grip from last years Burner in the Tour Burner counterfeits. All Taylormade Tour Burners with a shaft weight of 50g or 55g are absolutely without a doubt COUNTERFEITS. In addition it seems that the counterfeiters have not duplicated the Tour Burner headcover, which has white side panels and a large raised rubber "B" in red on a BLACK background on the head. Counterfeits either come with a red and yellow headcover without the "B", a red and yellow headcover with a red flat "B", or no headcover at all. (For examples of counterfeits go to www.dhgate.com and type in Taylormade Tour Burner in the search bar, which believe it or not is a clearinghouse for Chinese counterfeit merchandise).

While there is no foolproof way to determine whether or not the Tour Burner you are bidding on is genuine or not, at least stay away from any auctions containing the warning signs I outlined above. Making this even more incredible is the fact that some people are buying the counterfeit clubs at auction giving the seller positive feedback and then reselling the counterfeit once they have figured out they have been taken. If you do buy a counterfeit please tell Ebay and PayPal and leave the seller negative feedback as a warning to others.
The real Tour Burner is a great club, don't get short-changed buying a fake.
In my never ending search for extra yardage I now try the Tour Burner Driver. The Black on Black (Top and Bottom)immediately inspired confidence as I stepped up to the tee. The driver came with the TM Fujikura ReAx 60gram Stiff flex shaft. As I had been using a 49gram shaft it took me a bit to get used to. All in all I would definitely recommend this driver to anyone with a quicker swing speed looking for more control and distance.
Simply the best driver of Taylormade! Easy to handle, straight and long on the fairway.. The head just nice.. club face is square.. I have tried many drivers but keep on coming to this tour burner.. Highly recommended.
I bought my first Tour Burner with a 10.5 degree loft and the stock Fujikura stiff shaft, after enjoying the TM Burner model. It did very well, and is the longest driver I have owned. My ball trajectory was a little too high, so I purchased a 9.5 with an upgraded UST stiff shaft. They are matched very well, and I love to hit it, but it takes some getting used to it in order to keep it straight. Once I figured out the combination of set up and a little less back swing, it is almost my "go to" club. I never hit a 3 wood from the tee anymore.
Love everything about it, average drive is ~ 300 yards. I was hitting a Titleist 905 driver from last summer and longest measured drive was 347 yards. But this Talyormade Tour Burner is great; great cosmetics, and feel. All I need now is a Taylormade putter to complete my Taylormade set of clubs. So far its is the best looking club and one best performing I've used.
