I wanted to know how many has already purchased a tm r1 black, the reason why i was asking is because apparently they are selling like hotcakes, i checked my local golf galaxy this morning right when they opened and the rep said he had 4 in stock, so I'm thinking i'll just head over at lunch time from work and pick one up, damn was i wrong he sold all 4 in about 2 hours. Hopefully, this driver will not be that hard to get, but it's sounding that way.

I like it, still like the white though because of the anti glare crown but the black is sick. In the sense of feel and everything feels the same

I bought one without even hitting it. I thought it looked good and I wanted to get back to maximum adjustability so I could tinker a bit. At $250 for a driver that was $400 last month I just couldn't resist.

I think price is driving more people than color right now, and while they are saving the dough people are picking up the black because it's cool looking and "newer". I actually did consider the white because I like the orange graphics.

^^^ yeah i agree that the price is driving more sales than the black.  If they were still $399, i doubt i would of picked one up just because it was black.

I was Roger Dunn over the weekend and seems like a lot of people were picking one up

Bought one from Carl's Golfland and it shipped today.  But realistically, I'll be surprised if it sticks around long, let alone replaces by 910D2.  I'll give it a fair shot and even have my usual Claymore shaft waiting for it.  I bought it simply because I long played TM drivers until I met my 910D2. Since then there has been nothing close for me (I do play the TM Stage 2 fairway and hybrids).  Frankly, I have not yet found a TM driver that I got along with since my good ol' R9.

To be fair, I'd have to say I bought it because IMHO the black scheme looked great and was a decent deal.

Picked mine up on Sunday, and my local Golfsmith didn't have many.   I got fantastic numbers with the White R1, but just could not deal with the Graphics.   The black looks FANTASTIC, so happy with my purchase.

When TM first started peddling white drivers, they referred to the white head as "technology" (no glare, easier alignment,etc).....
It seems they've taken a step backward to the age of the black driver head...what's next, R1 persimmon?

Hopefully they go back and go R1 425 or R1 Super Deep. IMO TM really needs to provide a true TP head rather than just TP shafts to get me buying their gear again.

Ive hit the RI V2 TD3.  Its much more solid than the retail R1 and very forgiving at 420cc.  I wish they would release the V2 as a retail TP line.

I ordered mine with the motore speeder 7.2 stiff and it should be in next week.

I was one of the guys that didn't play taylor made because of looks, but decided to order one since it's black. I hope that they truly are limited, but doubt that will be the case.

Same head cover as the white r1.  I predict either prices going back to normal on black, and white staying discounted, or another drop on the white... I for one do like the white drivers.  With that said, I had to grab one of the black r1

Received mine yesterday. Going to the course this afternoon to give it a go. Set mine at 10* with 1* open(I tend to draw). I have a 10.5* Clev Launcher and hit it a little high, so will start with 10 and go from there.

The club does look nice.

Amen to that.  I would jump on a retail (i.e. affordable) R1 V2 or V3, R11s V2 or V3, etc.  I haven't bought a TM driver since the r9 Superdeep TP.  My current arsenal is two Superdeep TP's, and two r7 TP's (400cc).  I just can't stand the huge heads of all the stuff out there now.

we only got 2 in our shop and we still have both of them. the club looks amazing and when people were trying out the R1 on the weekend i told them a black version was coming out and alot of them seemed more interested in the black then the white head.
