The 2013 TaylorMade R1 Black driver finally gives players a much desired black crown option for those who have refused to buy into white. The new color, combined with alignment-aiding graphics on the crown, are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of innovation. The R1 Black driver offers more distance and more adjustability than any TaylorMade driver to come before it. With a completely redesigned loft sleeve and sole plate, you can tune the R1 Black driver to promote any shot shape you desire. Purchase the new TaylorMade R1 Black driver from 2nd Swing Golf and you’ll get a free fitting of every customizable option, putting you into the perfect driver for your unique specifications!
LAUNCH - The R1 Black's adjustability means golfers no longer need to choose a loft option to buy; with 12 different options between 8 and 12 degrees, including 5 upright settings and 7 normal settings, you’ve got every option rolled into one club. These settings can be tuned on the fly to optimize your trajectory for each shot you face on the course. The low, forward center of gravity makes the launch naturally high and keeps spin rates low for maximum roll and distance.
FORGIVENESS VS CONTROL - TaylorMade improved the shape of its Inverted Cone Technology inside the face, enlarging the area of the face that produces high ball speeds, compared to the R11S driver. The resulting high forgiveness is complemented with the control offered by unprecedented adjustability. In addition to loft, the face angle can be moved to any of 7 settings - Neutral, as well as three Open and three Closed settings - and movable weights can be placed to promote either a draw or neutral bias.
