Take TaylorMade for example; you might have been lucky enough to own its iconic r7 Quad driver way back in 2004. The r7 was memorable for introducing the then-revolutionary concept of changeable weights in a driver. This was a massive shift from the conventional 'one weight fits all' approach, and essentially meant you could take apart your driver and fit it to suit your own swing. The r7 Quad is a classic club, and is certainly remembered with fondness.
Fast-forward to the present day and TaylorMade has released its most technologically advanced driver to date in the form of the M3. The M3 really shows just how far we've come in terms of moveable weights, with a Y-Track feature that allows golfers to adjust their settings for optimal trajectory, maximum forgiveness, or less spin. It is also very forgiving, with Twist Face technology producing more consistent side spin in the areas where golfers commonly mis-hit.
So, whilst it is nice to think about your first ever driver, it's probably time to get up to speed with the latest models such as the M3. Who knows? Maybe in another 10 years time, you'll be looking back on the M3 with as much fondness as the r7 Quad!
