TaylorMade Introduces New Burner Driver
SuperFast and Dual Crown Technologies Unite to Deliver Distance-Enhancing Speed and Launch Conditions

Burner Driver
CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 25, 2008) -TaylorMade® Golf has introduced its next generation of Burner® drivers, the Burner and Burner TP, both developed for players who love to swing big and bomb the ball long.

The Burner bloodline runs deep at TaylorMade. The first Burner driver was introduced in 1983, and was quickly embraced by tour professionals and serious golfers alike for its remarkable blend of power and forgiveness. The Burner Plus driver followed in 1986, then came the Burner Bubble in 1995. In 2007 TaylorMade introduced a new Burner driver, which was the best-selling driver for the 2007 full year and 2008 season to date. * The Tour Burner was launched in 2008, which Sergio Garcia used to win this year's Players Championship and is the most-played driver model on the PGA Tour this year. **

The 2007 Burner driver introduced golfers to an amazing development called SuperFast technology, allowing golfers to swing the club faster to produce greater distance. The Tour Burner driver, unveiled early this year, introduced an exceptionally important performance feature: Dual Crown technology. Reducing the size of the clubhead's crown while increasing the size of the base made it possible to lower the center of gravity significantly, promoting a higher launch angle and lower spin-rate - the launch conditions that promote greater distance.

The newest Burner driver ingeniously combines the SuperFast technology of the 2007 Burner with the Dual Crown technology of the Tour Burner. The result? A driver weighing less than 300 grams that promotes faster swing speed, a higher launch angle and lower spin-rate, equaling a dramatic boost in distance. The two best distance-producing technologies in years are combined in a single high-MOI driver.

"This club is an easy-to-swing distance machine, and is a slam-dunk to appeal to every player who's ever swung hard at a golf ball," said Harry Arnett, TaylorMade senior director, metalwood category, "or every player who's ever wanted to."

Burner's high-MOI titanium clubhead also features TaylorMade's Inverted Cone Technology, imbedded into the back of a clubface that boasts more real estate (in other words, the largest) than any other TaylorMade driver. That means you can miss the center of the clubface by a lot and still make the ball go far.

Burner Driver TP

Burner is equipped with a lightweight grip and SuperFast RE*AX® 49-gram graphite shaft in X, S, R, M and L flexes. Lofts include 9.5°, 10.5°, HT (high trajectory). Available in men's right-handed and left-handed; ladies' right-handed. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $400, and it becomes available at retail starting on October 1, 2008.

For tour professionals and better players, the Burner TP (Tour Preferred) was developed, which features a slightly open clubface and a choice of SuperFast 55- or 65-gram graphite shafts in X, S and R flexes. Lofts include 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5°. Available in men's right-handed and left-handed. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $500, and it becomes available at retail starting on March 30, 2009.

If this is true then I am kissing goodbye to Taylor Made. No need to be changing drivers as they have pretty much maxed out the limits on drivers and so new ones are just a re hash of exisitng technology. I would have understood had they brought out the R9 with moveable weights to sit alongside the Tour Burner but to replace it after what...3-4 months is just disgusting.

this would appear to be the regular Burner, I guess Taylor Made wants to replace clubs after one year, rather than the customary two

I have been urging people to put the boot in TM and stop buying into their hype and products for the past two years. (They do make some quality gear, but much of it is nowhere near the quality of Titleist or Mizuno). If this is true then this is the last straw. How many more gimmicks can they come up with. Somebody please call STOP

Very surprised in this "possible release" as I assumed the tour burner was the burner replacement but this seems to be replacing the old burner not the tour burner.

I have played Taylormade the last 6 years for woods, I am desperately waiting the Titleist 909 series to hit the shelves.  I love the look of the driver.  For a new three wood I am actually thinking of an onlder 980f or a 904f.  I like the profile of those two a lot more.  For a new hybrid it is hard to not get a 585h and put a good shaft in it.....I am still leaning towards an adams hybrid.  Hard to argue with the tour presence.

YUK....

I dont see that ugly thing knocking the old 425TP out of the bag......NO WAY.  

On the other hand.....TM has been bringing a new driver to market at least 2 times per year, for YEARS.  Why in the world are you still surprised??  Get a grip, TaylorMade doesn't give 2 shakes whether you guys want the new drivers or not.  They are gonna make them, and people will buy them.

Taylor Made is clearly motivated by greed.

For Ping and Callaway, it takes them almost two years to find a design better than their Rapture and FT series drivers, respectively.  They do careful research and won't release it unless its better.

Taylormade keeps churning out products left and right, with the new one not being an improvement over the previous product.  It's just releases for the sake of releasing, to drive up sales.

The two-month old Taylormade driver which is heavily discounted will thereafter destroy any resale value the current Taylormade owners have with their drivers.  So not only is Taylormade out to artificially create high unit sales by doing constant product introduction and closeout cycles, they are also out to kill the used club market.

Meanwhile, Callaway offers rebates with their pre-owned program.  Ping's strict pricing policies protect the end consumer and gives them high resale values for their clubs.

Taylormade is just out to make a quick buck.  I understand that the ultimate motive is profit, but it seems like Taylormade's business practices and highly immoral, unethical, and a threat to the core values most societies want to instill on their youth.

No other golf brand has ever been as motivated by greed as Taylormade has.  Sooner or later, this will all get back to them and they will stand to lose it all.

I will let you in on a little secret........99.999% of the golfing world doesn't give a RAT's A$$ about the resale value of a golf club.  Heck, old golf clubs are dumped for PENNIES at garage sales all the time.  By the way, I am pretty sure that ALL the golf companies are out to make HUGE PROFITS.....believe me, they are not in business for anything else.

So from reading the press release, it looks like they are doing away with the Matrix, Diamana & Fuji shaft offering for the TP model? I personally like the look of the previous Tour Burners but its my 2 cents.

The new drivers look amazing. As for the people on here who think that TM launches to many drivers I ask you why you continue to buy them??? I played the Burner TP for years, and hit the Tour Burner TP with the same shaft, and I continued to play the Burner. If you do not agree with the new designs then simply do not buy them. But since no one on here has hit any of these drivers then we really do not know what they play or feel like. Afterall if companies only released things after 2 years... this site would be pretty boring.

Great comment that I fully agree with.  Its either greed or a flaw in the current model that they can only remedy by releasing a new model. I was a big TM fan but now its Ping or Callaway,

I don't understand why you guys keep saying " IM DONE WITH TAYLORMADE!!" they make some of the best clubs out there, just because they have more clubs out there than the others doesn't mean you should not buy their clubs. If anything you should be happy because tour burner prices will go down.

I just want to know why Taylormade actually has a driver called Tour Burner Tour Preferred (TP)?  You should not call something tour if you already have a TP designation. Can someone explain this ?

That's right!  Companies like TM are threatening our core values!  Down with them all.  I'm on board that's why I sold my Exxon stock after that cracked $90 a share before the summer, because enough is enough!

Now I have to get back to my cave, Osama may be calling, can someone let me know what comes first for TM's doom, sooner or later?  I'm betting later, like maybe when golf is officially declared a game not a sport by the UN, the IOC, and the World Police.  I sure hope SPECTRE doesn't catch word of this.

TM is pushing it by releasing new drivers every 5 mos but I agree with DM about their doom as I honestly don't see it happening any time soon. I don't think the average consumer cares about whether TM is in it for the money.. they just want the latest cutting-edge technology driver with hyper drive and other crap that will supposedly help them drive the ball 300+ yards :) .. and that alone will profit TM for many many more years to come

I don't get why people care how often new stuff comes out.  I am a huge taylormade guy and had an R5 TP, that I have been playing for years.  I always try Taylormade equipment first before straying.  At the driving range were I teach I saw a guy hitting the rapture, and hit it.  Fell in love and bought the driver.  I have been playing it for a year now!  Have not even tried another driver since beginning of last year.  

The last driver that came out when I got the rapture was the TM 460 Superquad TP black.  
As far as the "DE VALUE" come on who cares.  Either get fitted and buy whatever driver at whatever price plays the best for you.  If new stuff comes out and you want to try that is your thing.  Be thankfull there is something that came out to try!!

I could care less if taylormade released products every 2 months, as long as the qaulity in terms of craftmanship is fine, what if this new driver does allow you to hit the ball better.


The problem is all the people on this forum that claim to hit 3 woods 280 consistently, and play xx shafts, etcc...

Why do you think most guys on tour have like 3-4 of the same drivers (as close as possible)  And when they break thier favorite they freak out!!!  

Stick with getting fitted and play that!!!!

Looks like the put the top of the tour burner together with the bottom of the old burner.

Personally, I like how the Tour Burner looks better, but am wondering how this one is different, if anything more than costmetic?
