This carries the ball at least five yards further than any other head which I have tested this year, and I have tested a fair few. At 460cc it is absolutely grotesque, and really needs re-manufacturing to 360cc both for aerodynamics, ease of striking (it is far easier to find centre face on a smaller head), and ascetics. But is is immensely competitive once doctored.
I don't like the way TaylorMade ignore enquiries, the extortionate price of the head, the head's grotesque appearance, and the dry joint. I would much prefer to build the driver in the conventional way as my s.s. may ultimately wreck either the shaft of the head due to the inevitable play in the head. But, there is no doubting that this head is red hot!
