Taylor Made R9 460 Review

I can look into this, and let you know tomorrow. What shaft are you thinking about??

 

Honestly, I don't have one in mind, and the thought of reshafting my driver isn't keeping me up at night, but if I knew I could buy R9 ready shafts for close to the same price as the shaft alone I would start looking into it. I'd like to bring my trajectory down a bit from the Motore in the R9 460 TP.

I'll get some options and pricing and PM you tomorrow in the AM...

Great, I appreciate it. Depending on how the week in Myrtle goes, I may be in the market for a whole new stick when I come back.

Have a great time. I am hoping to play at Chambers Bay this weekend. (Fingers Crossed)

I definitely will. Good luck getting on Chambers Bay. Everything I've heard about that course has been outstanding. We'll need a full review (with pics) if you do get out there.

Played there last year, and it was amazing. There are open spots for a single on both Friday and Saturday. $99.00 I have to do it. If only I can convince the wife....

Now that's a lot more reasonable. Can you reserve times or do you have to sit and wait like a Bethpage situation?

I mentioned my desire to purchase additional shafts in another thread. TM is definitely missing the boat since I didn't learn until reading this thread that it can even be done (buying another shaft with the R9 tip). Does anyone know what the pricing is like for additional shafts? I assume it's higher than just buying the shaft on its own, but by how much?

Last year my pro got me a Fubuki 63 from TM for my R9TP. It had the adapter on it and was ready to plug into the head. I can't recall the price but it was a lot cheaper than buying the shaft from somebody else. I think it was under $150.

 

Call TM or have your pro do it for you. They'll sell you any optional shaft they have as far as I know.

I called TM this AM, and the retail pricing on all TP shafts with adapters is $200.00 Wholesale is a bit less.

You can buy a custom shaft directly from TM.

 

The problem is that You can buy it only from TM, if you buy a shaft somewhere else or You would like to put the one You had in Your previous driver, TM says its not possible. And also the range of shafts is limited in TM.

 

I bought a shaft and had a local clubmaker do it, because TM did not want to help. It turned out very good.

I actually paid my pro $185 plus tax for the Fubuki 63 which was around $300 elsewhere on the web.

BillyBobgolf.com sells the adapter. I bought one for around $30 with the idea to do what you did and never got around to it.

Pretty good deal. Your pro must like you.
