Both of these drivers are very popular - in fact, my husband uses the 2007 TaylorMade Burner driver 10. The shaft is slightly longer than the standard shafts on the R7 models, which should give you more distance. If there is a long open hole I can go to the end of the grip and belt the ball miles for me anyway. I get a lovely high draw with it. If items are extremely old or damaged, they are also not assigned a market value. Of the clubs that I've looked at to date I've been very impressed by the new Burner series. I really liked both clubs, but I cannot decide which one I should get.
Definitely confirm that the swing is correct not just by feel but also realize that being a better ball striker is also about how tight the variations in contact are. I hit the new burner and R9 super-tri drivers today, and neither of them gave you all the things that this club does. I have the 3 and 5 woods, its purely personal but I like the way the club sits behind the ball at address even with a shallow club face, I also like the club head being fairly large compared to the competition, this gives me confidence off the tee and off the fairway. Overall, it's a great club for average golfers, and it's a less expensive option than many other drivers. It gets the ball up, but probably a bit to high for me. It produces a great feel on solid hits, and doesn't sacrifice yardage on miss hits. If you struggle getting the ball into the stratosphere then this driver will do that easily, but it does not quite give the penetrating flight that I was looking for.
Better swings will always promote better golf, and lower scores. I live a little under 40 miles waaayyy out in Suffolk County from the City line and when I have to drive in for work have to drive for various reasons I have to give myself 4 hours. In fact, TaylorMade has used the Burner name for so long and with so many different clubs, it's hard to remember how and when it was first used. You can work the ball with it to unlike a lot of other drivers that give you the distance that this one does. I've used this one for the most part of 3 years - always trying to find one better - haven't yet. Straight, high and added 20 yards to my drives.
The Bottom Line: Both of these clubs - the 2007 and 2009 versions of the TaylorMade Burner driver - have a lot going for them, including TaylorMade's SuperFast Technology, which promotes distance gains by facilitating faster swing speeds. The service was excellent, I wasn't home to recieve my purchase so that night I changed my delivery address online and the next day it turned up at work. Will be back to update my irons. It's a club I feel comfortable with and I know my husband loves it because he always makes me give it back not long after we swap our drivers. The guy who worked there said that the reason I probably had more dispersion on the burner was due to the regular shaft. Some have said the styling is a bit ugly, which is maybe why they haven't been released over here.
Of course, there have been multiple versions of the club since that first version, and each new model has made improvements over its predecessors. Space age looks My own experience of the 460 Burner is less extreme and my use of it coincided with one of my best rounds for over a year. I'd have to go with the r9 460.

We got a tee time this past Sunday on Memorial Day wknd for 9 holes at about 845 am so we could play before my kid's afternoon soccer game. We flew through it and signed up for another 9 and got that in and still made it on time to the game. The slightly closed face and flex point of the shaft produce a high, draw-biased ball flight. Donal took the Dawn Raider to Carton House for the latest Dawn Raid.
The 2009 TaylorMade Burner Driver The 2009 model has also become a favorite with mid- to high-handicap golfers, providing several improvements over the previous model. Took it to the range and then on to the course. Great Driver with a huge sweetspot. Taylormade clubs are designed with the sweetspot on the upper part of the face, so that could be another reason for the dispersion of the burner. It's no fun hitting out sideways or been forced to lay up due to bad lies in the rough. Along with some striking colors, which make this a golf club that can't help but grab your attention. I was using a Titleist 905R until I got this and tried all of the top end drivers.
The distance is the same as anything I have played - G30, Jetspeed, R1, Titleist D2, etc. Bought this Burner when it first came out and loved it. We would recommend the Burner 2007 Driver to any level of golfer to try out. If memory serves me correctly, though, the first TaylorMade Burner driver came out in 1983. Pricing is updated regularly to ensure that you are receiving the highest trade-in value for your used clubs.
There were no stiffs available in lefty. I'm looking at upgrading my current driver and 3 wood. I fully expect to lose 4 to 5 shots off my handicap once the handicaps reopen next March. Also super service from golfbidder had clubs in two days. Now, if I thin, fat, or other wise hit a poor shot, I will feel that in my hands. The thing I like is it's a no nonsense driver, looks good and feels good off the face.
We like to explain how difficult everything is around here. Definitely suggest giving one of these a try! The fellow who bought it still loves it today. They'll both give you a high launch and a long, accurate drive. Absolutely best thing I could have done. However, after having experience with both the r9 and the burner series, there are serious differences that suit many different types of golfers. At the weekend in a match for my club against local rivals, one of the opposition 15 handicap had just purchased a left-handed version for the equivalent of just £150 in Florida and was loving its typical TaylorMade 'crunch feel' off the clubface and its 'soaring' ball flight.
I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who is using the new 'Burners' or from anyone else with alternative suggestions or ideas. Been doing it for so long but I still get a knot in my stomach every time I have to do it. I tend to hit it left to right with the Burner but by hitting more fairways, I can concentrate more on other parts of my game. There are lots of good drivers out there, but the 2007 Burner is the best I have played. Typical turnaround time is 7-14 business days. Everything about the TaylorMade Burner has been designed for speed, from the lightweight shaft and grip to the shape of the head, to allow for a faster swing and therefore more distance. I borrowed it and found that it was both longer and straighter than the Callaway Diablo driver I was using.
