TaylorMade BRNR Mini Driver Review

By: | Fri 19 May 2023

TaylorMade have always enjoyed releasing exciting new products, but the BRNR Mini Driver could be one of the most interesting in their modern history.

Ever since the unveiling earlier in the year, golfers - amateurs and professionals alike - have gone crazy for this club.

Golfshake Equipment Expert, Ryan Rastall, has tested the BRNR Mini Driver from TaylorMade and he shares his thoughts below. You see Ryan's latest video feature on the Mini Driver here or directly on YouTube.

TaylorMade Mini Driver

The BRNR Mini pays homage to TaylorMade’s Burner driver that was released in the late 1990s. Through the combination of retro styling and Moveable Weight Technology, there is plenty of forgiveness and versatility squeezed into this smaller offering. A blend of carbon fiber, titanium and steel is responsible for the stupendous sound, feel and performance that is typical for a TaylorMade product.

Furthermore, the K-Sole design enables the club to glide smoothly through the turf, which produces a consistent strike and one that you can rely on. Those who typically opt for ‘driver off the deck’ will be pleased with the Mini as the club has the consistency of higher lofted fairway woods - meaning executing one of the hardest shots in golf has become much easier.

The typical modern TaylorMade technology is present - Twist Face and Thru-Slot Speed Pocket - with the four-degree loft sleeve providing plenty of customisation. Twist Face ensures performance regardless of strike location on the face, whilst the Speed Pocket has been introduced to bolster ball speeds yet provide ample forgiveness for strikes lower on the face.

What Ryan Says

“First off, it looks awesome - I really, really like the look of it. The old school TaylorMade logo on the top looks great.

“It’s a very different sound and feel from the carbon drivers that we have at the moment. The ball speed that we are getting is very good and distance-wise, it’s good as well.”
