R1 v1 vs V2 Comparison Pictures (Also R11s v2 vs R1 v2)

Published

EXCLUSIVE:

Only here on GolfWRX will we see the inside scoop of what is going on with the gear out there. Another example of unique versions of TaylorMade drivers tuned for either launch, feel/sound or looks for the TMag staffers.

Here is the original post…

Hey guys, I finally got a chance to snap some comparison pictures of the R1 v1 (version 1) and R1 v2 (version 2). From what I have been told the R1 v2 is 420cc.

The v2 is also significantly lighter than the v1. The tour heads (without tip) weight around 195g versus 205g for a retail head, making them much more practical for builds. I also found out there is three lofts on tour, 8.5, 9.5, and 10.5.

    Deaus7,

    Agreed, total travesty. They aren’t the only ones though. Almost every company out there designs clubs for the Game Improvement set (Miura and some others excluded). Problem is, how are they supposed to improve when their irons have a full shaft offset? Or their driver is 2-4 degrees shut? I’m all for forgiveness, but at some point people are going to have to learn how to hit shots and play other than swing and pray.

    What a Travesty, TMAG is literally Ruining the golf equipment industry, They started with all white which some can live with, but now they are starting to infect other companies as well, Tour pros play them cause they get paid too, What clubs are always in the bag up until they get sponsored?? very very rairly TMAG, unless its a college player who also gets free stuff. There is alot of evidence out there that equipment has actually gotten worse and more ill-fitted. Talk to Tom Wishon.

Best Ping irons from the last 5 years – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Ping irons. WRXer ‘LowAndLeft32’ wants to hear what our members believe are the best additions from the brand over the past five years, with the i210 irons proving a popular choice.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • PEI_Golfer: “Hard pressed to beat the i210s.”
  • realmfg: “Blueprints.”
  • eric61: “Love the i210s — they’re easily the answer here, in my opinion. I really liked the i59s, too, but not as much as the i210s, and I think their price point maybe has meant a lot of people didn’t even end up trying them. G-series irons are fine too. If you’re in that segment of the market, the last few years it’s been the latest G irons vs the latest Hot Metals for the top of the pecking order, in my opinion.”
  • Cwhite912: “Easy, I210, Blueprint, iBlade.”

Easiest launching fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing easy to launch fairway woods. WRXer ‘Pete52’ hits his woods too low, and our members have been sharing their best picks to solve his problem in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JKJKJK: “I had the easiest time to elevate from the deck with G425 Max 3Wood/5Wood with Motore F3 shaft. Flies really high and easy to hit.”
  • DoughBack18: “Sim2 Ti. Has a lot of weight on the sole, and you can really launch it high. I’ve always had a slightly lower trajectory, got this in a 5 wood, and it’s worked really nicely filling the gap I had at the top end of my bag.”
  • Valtiel: “Any of the modern Pings are a good litmus test for elevation. If you can’t get those off the ground then you know the problem ain’t the club.”

Your favorite wedge distance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing optimum wedge layup distance.

WRXer ‘KevinMDowney’ kicks off the thread asking: “if you’re going to lay up on a par 5, what distance are you looking to lay up to?” and says he prefers “full SW to Gap Wedge – 90 to 110 range.”

And our members have been sharing their ideal wedge distance in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Sean124: “I guess my favorite would be 100 yards, which is a full smooth 60* for me.”
  • jc2: “100-105 is a full sand wedge which is perfect for me. Anything more than that, I’m trying to take some off a gap wedge which I don’t control as well.”
  • dsmil: “The closer the better for me. I’ve practiced the 40-70 yard shots quite a bit, so they don’t make me uncomfortable. I like using my 58 and zipping it in there low with spin.”
