I rated it a 4 because there is always room to improve. I'm not a big fan of TM although some of their stuff is solid in the bag (irons)...I've owned many a tour DF in my days and never was happy with them. Recently I got a retail 10.5 TP head and it's MONEY.. Best TM driver I have hit to date...

gives me ballspeeds with low 100 mph swings that I used to have to swing 108-110 to get.

I rated it a 5.

Hell, it is in the hall of fame for gods sake. Hits bombs. one degree lower than normal heads, low spin driver. Need to be able to have some good launch angles and swing speed to activate it's true colors. When I do it is the best.

Dont play it because it isnt 460cc and I have a thing for forgiveness right now.

But it is in the basement waiting.

I went through 20 drivers in 18 months before settling on the 510 TP 10.5 with stock R flex Speeder 757.  That was a year ago and I rarely even think about trying another driver.  My nomal shot is a slight draw and this club has a perfect trajectory, is long and forgiving.  Can't say enough good things about it.

I just changed from a protopype to a speeder 553... holy moly.. the club got even better. I swear the head feels like it's going to fall off...it kicks so hard. Gives me a little more spin then I would normally want..but I'm hitting fairways and it's a much easier game from there...

i use a Ignite 460 now but i think this Driver is for people who has fast head speed who likes to use a Pro V1x. I went to the main Taylormade factory in Carlsbad and they told me that they do all the test drives with a Pro V1x because if it matches with the Pro V1x more people will more likely to use it.

But it goes long if you can really hit it and pure for trajectory control with a Speeder 661 or a Diamana 73.

Good Driver

I bagged a 510 TP Tour for a while.  It was as solid as i've ever felt in a driver... swingweight was high... and the face angle was a hair open.  It was in my bag for quite a while even though i dont think i was spinning it quite enough to take full advantage... but i loved it because i felt like i could really go after the ball and not have it go a mile left.  It is up there with the best drivers ever... I still like it better than the r7... 5 stars all the way

I am bidding on one of these right now on ebay. It has a fujikria 27.3 X shaft. I have been told these are real good control driver but lack the power of some of the newer models. Cany anyone compare the distance of the r510 TP compared to a newer driver.

I switched from a Ping G2 with Graf PL to a R510TP with Fuji 757, same flex. I was hitting the Ping left too often, and the 510 has straightened the flight up. I don't know whether there is a distance difference or not. If there is, it is not a huge one, although a player with more clubhead speed might notice one. Anyway, I am pretty happy being in the fairway more often, and even being able to fade one when I want. My next move will probably be a R7 TP of some sort.

I gave it 5 stars...I have retail 9.5 with a blue...I don't experiment much...last 3 drivers were titleist (975d, 983k, 983e) and the 510tp was by far the better performing club

As far as looks and feel, the best ever. If they could make it look identical at 460 ccs, it would make evey other driver obsolete

Went out today and tried a R510 TP 8.5 with X Diamana 73.  Amazing.  I was hitting it 30+ yards farther than my Ignite 410 with Nano NT X.  Club was a little to light but still the kick in that shaft was incredible.  I was really impressed.

Got four retail r510 TPís & one tour issue, two r580XD TPís, & a r540XD TP all with similar weighted shafts, Fujiís, Aldila's all pured.

The head weight, feel & impact sound are all significantly different.

The best one is a retail 9.5 r510 TP; it is the most solid thing I have ever hit.  It was also the first one I ever bought & expected them all to feel like it, but they donít.

It must be the manufacturing tolerances on the retails, different hot melt on the tourís.  I cannot see it being the weight cartridges, I changed one from a 5g to 9g no difference in feel, just a heavier swing weight.

Anyone found similar results??

5 stars! I've had my tour r510 tp for 6 months now and the only thing I can say is wow!  My club is shafted with a Diamana Blue and the ball flight is med high that doesn't balloon.  I want to try a r7 tour, but I just can't pull the trigger because the r510 is just that good.

One of the best drivers I've hit.  I used a retail 9.5* for the past three seasons before going on Callaway staff this year.  It blows the r7 TP out of the water!  I have tried a tour issue head, but found my retail one to be just as good if not better.  Perfect blend with the Fujikura 757 and many high-end shafts.  A classic driver head that set the benchmark for all to follow...

I agree. the 510 TP reminds me of a Persimmon driver in that it sounds very solid and not at all metallic. A very solid club to say the least! Simp

Played a 9.5 with speeder stiff.  

Awesome club.  I hit some of the longest drives of my life with it.  Eventually I switched to a bigger headed driver for more forgiveness but I can honestly say that the big drives weren't as big as with the 510tp.

Let me start by saying that I love  :)  to buy the latest and "greatest" drivers on the market.  Case in point, the r7 425 TP in my bag.  I was happy with the 425 TP and think it is a better and longer driver than my r7 TPs were.  As for the R510 TP, I kept seeing a nice used 8.5* with a tour spec Fuji 757 at the place I usually shop for clubs.  It kept calling my name  :ok: so I had to buy it and go "old school".  All I can say is WOW!   :bb: This thing is a cannon!  Let's just say that my 425 TP and tour issue r7 will be for sale, since I won't be needing their services anymore.   :) Maybe I got lucky, but it is that good.  Darn, now I have to change my signature again!

Well I just got a 9.5 510TP with a Fujikura Vista Tour X and after reading this thread I can't wait to get to the range and try it! How do you know if its a TP or not? Is it the little logo on the toe of the club?
