Everyone wants more distance, and some of the ways club manufacturers try to help golfers hit it farther are to lighten the weight of the club and to improve the aerodynamics of the club. A lighter club that creates less resistance through the swing can increase a golfer's swing speed.

The TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 driver (and its TP version) build on those elements of the original Burner SuperFast.

The Burner SuperFast 2.0 weighs in at 279 grams, the lightest driver ever from TaylorMade, with clubhead design adjustments for aerodynamics and a lower center of gravity. The shaft is longer and the clubface is one of the largest in golf, and TaylorMade says it adds up to an additional five yards compared to the original Burner SuperFast driver.

The 2.0 also has, as you can see in the right photo above, a white crown on the clubhead and black clubface. The contract between the white crown and darker turfs helps improve aiming, the company says, and also reduces glare.

The stock shaft is the ultralight, tip-soft Matrix Ozik XCon 4.8. The 25-gram Winn Lite is the stock grip.

The Burner SuperFast 2.0 TP model isn't as light as the standard model, with a 65-gram Matrix Ozik HD 6 shaft and 43-gram Tour Velvet Light grip; it also has a slightly smaller footprint and neutral bias.

The TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 drivers become available at retail on Feb. 4, 2011, the standard in lofts of 9.5, 10.5 and 12.5, the TP in lofts of 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5. MSRP is $299 for the standard model, $399 for the TP model. taylormadegolf.com
