TaylorMade r7 SuperQuad
$499, graphite; taylormadegolf.com

WE TESTED:
9.5° with Fujikura Rombax RE•AX 65 graphite shaft

COMPANY LINE:
"Our first r7 driver to have four moveable weights (two are 12 grams each, two are 1 gram each) in a 460 cc head. Moveable weighting and inverted cone technology produce tremendous forgiveness for long, straight shots on off-center hits."
