I had a caved in Taylor Made 540 driver so I sent it to Taylor Made asking if they could replace the head. Today it came in Halifax where my brother picked it up. He called me and said that I there was a Taylor Made R5 driver there for me. I checked it out and found out this is a 450 beast. Not bad for a 540 I bought on ebay for 100 canadian.

Now I have the following problem, I just bought a Titleist 983E driver on Ebay in January now I have a Taylor Made R5 to go with it. Which driver is better and should I sell the Taylor for 250 american since it is brand new.

Go demo the R5, see if you like it. Then, make your decision.

Personally, I think that if you like the Titleist, then stick with it. Sell that bad boy for 250US and buy a new putter and a couple new wedges.

If i were you, i would sell the R5 even if you like it. If you can get that kinda scratch for the R5, you can actually pick up a slightly used R7 for $250USD. I know i scooped a R7 with $200+ Accra shaft for $325.
