TaylorMade unveils R15 family

2014 11 R15 Driver Weights Split

TaylorMade has returned to the metalwoods market with its biggest launch to date as the impressive R15 driver, fairway woods and hybrids were unveiled today.


Described as the brand’s ‘most technologically advanced driver ever’, today’s launch sees the introduction of a brand new Front Track that features two moveable weights and emulates the performance of TaylorMade’s speed pocket in the past, expanding the sweet spot and lowering the spin.

The introduction of the new Front Track has enabled TaylorMade to move 75% of the clubhead’s total mass low and forward as it sits 12mm closer to the face than it did in the SLDR, allowing a further 40g of mass to be moved closer to the face.

As for the two sliding weights, each one weighs 12.5g, and they can combine to offer the ball flight you wish from the clubhead. If you want maximum distance then you have to centre both weights side-by-side on the track, but if you was maximum draw you have to position them both as far right as you can.

Similarly if you want maximum fade both weights should sit to the left hand side, while maximum stability is offered by positioning one weight to the right of the track and one to the left.


As if that wasn’t enough, TaylorMade has decided to settle the debate between a white and a black crown once and for all – by releasing both at the same time. The R15 will be available in a choice of a satin white or a gloss black finish meaning there is an option for everyone.

That’s not all, either. The R15 has a larger address shape, building confidence on the tee, and there’s adjustability in there, too, as TaylorMade’s loft sleeve technology returns, offering four-degrees of loft adjustability.

The R15 driver is available from January 9, 2015, and will be available in 9.5°, 10.5°, 12° and 14° for an RRP of £369.

R15 FW

Alongside the driver, TaylorMade has launched the R15 fairway woods and rescues. Like the driver, the R15 fairway wood is TaylorMade’s most technologically advanced ever and is the first to feature a sliding weight. Featuring a new Front Track system that has been adapted specifically for a fairway wood, it acts like a speed pocket to reduce spin and increase the sweet spot. It also offers four-degrees of loft adjustability, like the driver.

The R15 fairway is available from January 9, 2015 and will be available in 3, 3-HL, 5 and 5-HL option for an RRP of £229.

The rescue is the only one in the family not to feature a sliding weight but it does have a new tour-inspired shape that enables better playability from more lies.

The R15 rescue is available from January 9, 2015 and will be available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 options for an RRP of £189.
