If you are an avid golfer that has been playing with a "standard" driver, with a club face that is slightly open - this club IS NOT for you. This club comes standard with a 48g shaft (too wimpy for a fast club swing) and a club face that is slightly closed at address. It was designed to help golfers with slower golf swings get the club faced closed at impact. I immediately started pulling all my drives left with this club, and I tried for a month to adjust to the setup of this club and hit my drives straight and I was only successful about 30-40% of the time ( I track my play stats). I did see an increase in my distance with this club, but it wasn't worth the lost of control. The Burner TP is the club of choice for golfers who know the difference between a Pull, Draw, Slice, Fade, and Cut shot and how to hit them. You will have a hard time hitting a Fade or Cut golf shot, with the TaylorMade Burner "standard" since this club is designed to be an Anti-Slice club. If you want to hit a Draw as your ball flight, you will enjoy the TaylorMade Burner "standard". Since my swing speed is faster than the average golfer, I had no trouble hitting a Draw consistently off the tee with this club due to how it sets up. You should definitely visit a Golf Shop and demo this club before you buy it on-line. I purchased this club on-line based on the reviews, and was shocked and disappointed in how I hit this club. It was only after I went into a Golf Shop, and had somebody tell me about this club, that I learned about how it was designed, longer with a slightly closed cub face at address, that the reasons why I was having so much trouble hitting this Driver straight came to light. I have switched to the Burner TP and it's just what the Doctor ordered for my swing. Your mileage may vary so definitely go and demo this club at a Golf Shop before you buy it on-line. Hope this helps somebody else before they make the mistake that I did, when buying this club based on reviews, and not on actually hitting the club first to see if it matches my golf swing.
I bought the superfast driver to gain more yardage. I like the looks of the club. I dislike the way the club performs. I was much happioer with the original burner 2007 model, it keeps the ball much straighter. I tend to slice the ball with the suoperfast. As for the yardage , I can't hit it straight enough to tell if it is going further.Bigger and newer are not always better. I have gone back to the original burner and I am back in the fairways again.
Why you bought it: Like the other Taylormade drivers I have had and all my buddies were getting the Superfast, so I put what I thought was a low bid & won it.
What you like most about it: the look & light feel.
What you dislike about it: Shaft to stiff and did not get the distance of my current driver a Callaway Hyper X Tour.
Whether or not you would buy the product again: Possibly with a Regular or Senior shaft.
Bought it to gain extra distance. The driver does add distance but as usual the rest is up to the player. While I did gain additional distance, I also lost what little control I had with my previous driver. This is a good driver and when struck solidly, it is longer than any driver that I currently own (and I have several).
Really I was swaying towards the 2011 Superfast driver but did not believe the hype or like the new look. I now hit the 2010 past my buds who swear by the 2011 model and I paid only 1/3 the price brand new.
So if you have good control and are looking for more distance, this driver is the best bang for the buck!
This is a good club, everyone seems to be very happy with it. It just was not for me, to long of a shaft, high swing weight and somewhat closed face. Just could not get comfortable with. Distance was fine, not a lot farther than other drivers I have owned. Should be a good buy for most players.
There is no difference from the 2010 Burner. The feel is the same, the distance is the same. Maybe they think it's that great paint job that makes it worth buying. That's the only thing I can see different. Keep your old driver and save your money. If you have never had a TaylorMade driver maybe worth trying.
My reason for buying the Taylormade Burner was to increase my distance on my drives over my old calloway BIG B This was the i bought in on line and did not get the right angle on the head it is tow in too far for me which caused a hook so i gus it is not fair for me to judge,so i went back to what i have used for many years just up dated.i do love the r7 irons
Really have to hit near centre, not as forgiving as other drivers but when hit right the ball goes.took a bit of practice to achieve a straighter ball flight.
Has a hot face. Thats about all I can say good about it. It is very difficult to draw the ball and just as difficult to keep it from fading. Not near as easy to hit as my 09 burner.
I would have to give this an average so far. But then again, it could be the operator and not the equipment. When I hit it, it feels really good, but miss hits seem to lose more distance.
