The TaylorMade R9 460 Driver is a 460cc, adjustable driver released in June of 2009 as a step up from the R9 (430cc). It features TaylorMade Flight Control Technology (FCT) for changing the face angle, loft, and lie to promote approximately 40 yards of side-to-side trajectory change. And in regards to the R9, the R 460 in fact launches—on average—1 degree higher with 300/400 rpm less spin. This is due to its deeper-back CG position, which makes it easier to launch the ball both high and long. Included also in this model is Inverted Cone Technology, which combines super-high MOI and an easy-launching CG position to max out on off-center hits. Note that the head is neutral-biased and does NOT have the Moveable Weight Technology (MWT) system.
“R9 460 targets those who prefer a simpler, easier-to-use big stick than the fully loaded R9 driver.”
