Note there are some very good FAKE Taylormade R7 CGB drivers currently. They look as if they are coming from UK but are actually sent from China. Unfortunately you will not notice many of these things from pictures on Ebay and they will only be apparant when seen directly when you recieve club and you compare with TM original.  If you do buy a club then you should note the following and check what is delivered against a bonafide TM with your local authorised dealer :

Price seems to good to be true?
The wrench supplied is all plastic - no rubberised black insert?
The weights are not made of tungnsten and 1g weights sheer when tightened to torque settings?
The Head Cover is narrower and shorter than on TM - also the stitching at right angles to magnetic opening is at 3/4" to 1" gaps and not at 1/2" spacing of TM?
The lettering is generally slightly larger on both shaft and headcover when compared to TM?
Serial Number is larger than TM - TM serial can just be made out with naked eye
Shaft is 3/4" too short - fake serial is capable of registration with TM online?
The parallel red lines on opposite side to REAX logo overlap the white lines - they dont do this on TM?
Satellite Planet logo on shaft - on fake the gold orbit line doesnt cross in front of red  centre as on TM?
Silver markings on grip are too white / silver - TM is more a grey silver - also the vertical dashes coloured silver on TM are not coloured on Fake?
The Fake club head sits "square" the TM sits slightly closed?

As I say these are all decernable only when the club is in your hand and being compared to a proper TM CGB.  My advice is if it seems too good to be true it probably is. -DONT BID and get caught like me.

Hope this helps.
