also utilizes the Flight Control Technology in its new fairways, the R9 and R9 TP fairway woods. Like with the R9 drivers, the fairways feature the FCT sleeve and FCT bolt, and give the golfer the ability to adjust the club's look at setup and effect changes in ball flight and trajectory.
The TaylorMade R9 fairways come in lofts of 13, 15, 17 and 19 degrees, both right- and left-handed. The stock shaft is a 70-gram Fujikura Motore graphite shaft. The MSRP is $275 per club.
The R9 TP fairways offer the same loft options but with a tour-caliber 85-gram Fujikura Motore F1 shaft. The MSRP is $360 per club for the tour-preferred models.
Both the R9 and R9 TP fairway woods become available on March 20, 2009.
