Showcase: TaylorMade r7 CGB MAX
Check out the new TaylorMade CGB MAX driver and iron, both of which are designed to make the game easy for everyone.r7 CGB MAX
If you’re sniffing around for a new driver this season, first ask yourself what kind of driver you need: Do you want more distance? Do you want to counteract your slice? How about a driver that features moveable weights? If your answer is “all of the above,” then you’re in luck. The all-new r7 CGB MAX driver ($499) from TaylorMade combines two of the company’s flagship technologies (r7 and CGB) into one driver that promises big distance and forgiveness in a new rich cherry color. And, oh, yeah, don’t forget the new irons, too. (Fairway wood also available.)
The r7 CGB MAX driver naturally has a draw bias (more so than the r7 Draw), helping golfers eliminate the banana ball. If you don’t want to draw it, placing the 16g weight cartridge in the toe creates a slight fade bias.
The triangular shape of the clubhead not only aids in alignment, it also enhances the effects of the three weight ports located in the rear, heel and toe. TaylorMade claims the weight cartridges (one 16g and two 1g weights) can be adjusted to lend a 35-yard difference in shot shape.
Yes, this driver is available through TaylorMade’s SelectFit custom fitting, with three loft options (9.5, 10.5 and 12). There’s also a handful of flex options in the stock Mitsubishi RE*AX graphite shaft.
