Tried the TSR 2+ fairway today and was mightily impressed. Had it set at D1 making it 12.25 degrees loft and put it on a Tensai Raw Blue Regular shaft. It was not difficult to launch and went like a rocket both of a small (red castle 1.25") tee or off the mat. I found it user-friendly, in so far as it was possible to fade and draw, I liked the launch window and the control was better than my (TS3) driver probably because of the shorter shaft. Distance versus driver was not too shabby and I had the benefit of improved control.
I tried the TSR2 (15 degree) last week - without the benefit of Trackman - but it seemed no discernible improvement on my TSi2 (15 degree) in terms of a distance comparison. The sound was, however, duller and much more satisfying. Wasn't persuaded to upgrade like for like at this point in time.
I thought about the TSR2+ and concluded that it was a similar loft to a mini-driver and wondered if it could be for me. The answer is a resounding YES IT COULD!
I was originally somewhat put off by the perceived "Better Player" aspect of the TSR2+ but either I'm better than I thought with Fairway woods or I'm a Better Player. Not sure which "Truth" I'm tempted to believe!
The upshot of this tale is not to be put off this amazing club - give it a chance if you get the opportunity. Who knows, you too may be pleasantly surprised. If you do order one, there is currently a delay in delivery.... and you will be behind me in the queue!!
