Quality: 

Quality looks very good, as I'd expect from TaylorMade. High price shaft.

Pros: 

It's a very nice looking driver with an expensive shaft in it.

Cons: 

I hated this driver. It has a 50 gram shaft in it, and for me that's way too light. I've been playing 75 gram shafts in my driver for the past year and a half, and this driver was terrible with that light shaft. Ball flight was very low, and so far left on my target it was in another state.

Summary: 

As with any driver, it's not the driver, but how it fits the swing you have. For me, this driver is a waste of money, due to the light shaft weight. I have no idea why so many new driver come with such light shafts. They claim it's to get a higher swing speed, but my testing tell me I get the exact same swing speed with 55, 65 and 75 gram shafts. Bottome line is I just couldn't hit a good drive with this club. Not one good drive out of dozens.
