TaylorMade golf designed its R7 425 driver with movable weight technology (MWT), giving golfers the ability to change the weight distribution in the club head. This feature allows for a variety of shot types, from fades to draws, or a neutral ball flight with either a low or high trajectory. In addition to the R7 425, there is also the larger R7 460, but both have four weighting ports where weight can be added or subtracted to fit your preference--one at the toe and heel, and two in the back.

  1. 1

    Remove all the existing weights from the driver head by inserting the TaylorMade wrench into each weighting port and twisting counter-clockwise. Skip this step if the weights have already been removed.

  2. 2

    Determine your desired ball flight--draw, fade or neutral--and determine the trajectory and the extent of the draw or fade you wish to achieve.

  3. 3

    Configure the weights to suit your desired ball flight. Placing the majority of the weight in the toe will cause an extreme fade--for less fade, place equal weights at the toe and in the back on the heel side. Placing the majority of the weight in the heel will cause an extreme draw--or less draw, place equal weights at the heel and in the back on the toe side. For a low, neutral ball flight, place equal weights in the toe and heel ports; for a higher ball flight, place equal weights in both back ports.

  4. 4

    Fasten the weights into their respective ports by inserting the TaylorMade wrench and twisting clockwise. Be sure each weight is tightly secured before swinging the club.

Tips and warnings

  • To achieve any of the six possible ball flights, do not change your swing, but rather alter the weights and maintain your same natural swing.
  • The TaylorMade R7 425 and any other club with MWT can only be used in tournaments if all alterations have been made prior to each round. No changes can be made during the round.
