TaylorMade Driver Comparison: R15 vs R15 TP
The TaylorMade R15 driver and TaylorMade R15 TP driver share all the same clubhead attributes. They both have a 460cc clubhead that features the new Front Track system with two adjustable weights, weighing 12.5 grams each. They also share TaylorMade’s most adjustable loft-sleeve that allows for 12 different settings, fine tuning the loft, lie and face angle. The single difference is the shaft.
The TaylorMade R15 driver is equipped with the Fujikura Speeder 57 Evolution as the stock shaft. This shaft has a mid-kick/mid-bend point with a mid to high torque rating. It weighs around 57-60 grams (based upon the flex) and would best suit a golfer with low to moderate swing speeds. It will promote a mid to high launch angle with mid to low spin rates.
The TaylorMade R15 TP driver is stocked with the Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution Tour Spec shaft. This shaft has a mid-kick/mid-bend point, but with a much lower torque rating than the Fujikura Speed 57 Evolution shaft. This shaft produces results with a lower launch angle and much lower spin rates. This shaft is best suited for higher swing speeds and faster tempo players.
