Overview-

The TaylorMade Burner Superfast driver is built on Duel Crown and Inverted Cone Technology.  The premise of the Superfast is to create clubhead speed through a light weight club [only 283 grams].  The 460cc is exceptionally forgiving and is the largest clubface of any TaylorMade driver.

“Incredibly light (only 283 grams) and extra long (46.5″) to promote increased speed and distance.”

Technology-

Duel Crown Technology consists of CNC-milled directly into the inner side of the club resulting in a variation in face thickness.

Inverted Cone Technology started with the still popular R500 series and remains a permanent fixture in the Burner Superfast series.

Actual Player Feedback-

“Best driver out there”

“If you don’t like this club, you don’t like vanilla ice cream”

“This club on every swing put me straight down the middle. Probably the lighter make up has gotten me square at impact and I can still take my full swing”

“This new Burner driver is by far the best golf club I have ever tried. The ball goes straight and far”

[review pros=”The Burner Superfast is designed for the average player looking for increased ball speed.  The technology is top-class as with all TM drivers.  Great stock shaft option in the Matrix Ozik!” cons=”We are not a fan of increasing shaft length – we feel 46.5 is too long for the average player and in many cases the PGA tour players are going shorter!”  score=99.6]

Summary

The 2011 TaylorMade Burner Superfast was voted to Golf Digest Hot list [Gold] and is starting to quickly gain in popularity, mainly because of the stellar reputation of its predecessor.  TaylorMade is known for their high quality, high technological drivers and this one fits the bill as well.  The only shortsightedness we see is the 46.5 stock shaft. This can be avoided by custom fitted shaft., which we recommend.  We believe shaft lengths should be shorter, as does Tom Wishon [answer #26] – quite revealing.
