The TaylorMade Burner Superfast driver is engineered to increase club head speed through impact. Through the use of a lighter, more aerodynamic club head, you will likely see at least some increase in speed and distance off the tee.
The new edition Superfast 2.0 driver expands and improves upon last years technology. The surface area of the face, and aerodynamics of the head have both been enhanced. As in every new generation of driver, the Superfast aims to increase launch and decrease spin rate. I’ve usually seen this as being a product of having the right shaft in your driver, but none the less, TaylorMade is making an effort to improve.
The new shape of the TaylorMade Burner Superfast head allows their Dual Crown Technology to further promote a higher launch angle and lower spin rate. The SuperFast provides exactly what the lower handicapper is looking for.
The black face and white, non-glare head sets up nicely. By far my favorite piece is the fact that the club actually sets up slightly open. I’m always turned off by new drivers that are manufactured with a closed club face. The SuperFast definitely fits my eye though.
There is a slight issue with alignment when the sun is shining from behind however. A glare on the white club head makes the black face in the shadow difficult to align. The specific conditions needed for that to be an issue on the course are fairly rare however. In all other positions, alignment is pretty slick.
In all the TaylorMade Burner Superfast outperformed the Taylormade R11, in playability, look, feel, power and distance. Which might come as a surprise to some considering the overwhelming popularity of the R11. In my opinion, the SuperFast is the better choice, especially for lower handicaps.
TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 Shaft Options
The driver comes with two unique shafts made specifically for the Superfast. The logic behind offering a unique shaft further proves that TaylorMade is serious about selling a light weight driver that can alone, increase a player’s swing speed. Although, they are no lighter than other shafts on the market.
Matrix HD6 by Matrix – Comes in Stiff and Xtra-Stiff and weighs 65grams.
Matrix X-Con 5 by Matrix – Comes in Regular flex and weighs 56grams.
To even FURTHER create a lightweight club, TaylorMade sells the Superfast with the Bio Winn Lite grip that weighs just 30 grams. This may or may not be noticeable to most players, nonetheless I think its a nice addition.
In conclusion I would recommend the TaylorMade Burner Superfast driver to players who want a traditional looking club that performs great.
