How to Set Weights on the Taylormade r7 SuperQuad Driver

Updated July 20, 2017

In 2008, TaylorMade released the r7 Superquad Driver. Its unique design allows golfers to add or subtract weight to different areas of the club head to change ball trajectory. By simply placing more weight in one area than another, the ball flight can be manipulated into a desirable draw or fade, low or high. The head is given a black finish to reduce glare and four individual weights are supplied with each driver: two 12-gram weights and two 1-gram weights.

Insert the weighting wrench into the desired weight area and turn it counterclockwise until it is completely removed.

Insert the desired weight(s) into the column at the toe, heel or back.

Reseal the area by twisting the fastener clockwise.


Added weight to the toe will cause a fading effect, while weight to the heel will result in a draw. Placing the majority of the weight in the back will add force for distance. All weights can be used at once, or simply the amount desired.
