  • 08 Tour Burner Driver vs 09 Burner/TP?

    Any major differences between these drivers, the 08 Tour Burner is a fairway machine, easy to shape the ball. What's to gain if you jump up to the 09 Burner TP?

    Thanks

      somebody once said the same thing about me.

      I just bought a new 09 Burner TP so I am also interested in what opinions come out of this.

          No I just bought it yesterday off Ebay and am having it shipped to my buddy in Carolina for my bag I keep down there.

            Absolutely nothing unless you want to increase your spin rate a little.

              I found the 08 burner tp to spin a ton, that's probably why it's a fairway finder. The 09 spins more?

                I just hit some balls with it at the Markham dome (outside) my current Tour Burner has a BB stiff 63g shaft, the Burner TP I picked up has the fuji reax 65 Stiff. My SS is 98-100, balls speed 155, distance off the tee is 265 ish+. I am looking to try and scratch out 10-20 more yds.

                It felt like it had a bit more pop off face, hard to tell out there if there was any distance gain, will need to test it head to head on the course.

                  In my testing, yes. The lighter shaft increased spin by about 300 rpm.

                    From what I know, rgk5 is right, the Tour burner was designed to be really low spin!
                    The 09 Burner should be a little more forgiving and slightly higher spinning.
                    The shaft in each will also have an effect on the flight and feel.
