How to Set the Weights for an R7 460 Driver

    Screw the weights into the holes of the r7 club head using the TaylorMade TLC torque wrench. Turn the weights clockwise to tighten them.

    Adjust the weights based on the type of shot you need to hit. To hit a shot that curves left, place the two heaviest weights near the heel of the club. To hit a shot that curves right, place the two heaviest weights near the toe of the club.

    Set the weights according to your desired ball flight. For a higher shot, set the two heaviest weights in the holes furthest from the club face, and for a lower ball flight, set the heaviest weights in the two holes closest to the club face.


  • These are the most extreme options for hitting certain types of shots. You can experiment by placing one lighter weight and one heavier weight near the heel to hit a milder draw, for example. With four adjustable weights, there is some room to be creative with your weight placement. You can purchase additional weights and wrench sets through either the TaylorMade website (see Resources) or leading golf-equipment dealers.


  • To avoid damaging your driver, use only the TaylorMade TLC torque wrench to adjust the weights.
