What I loved about my R7 is what I love about the G20: The feel, and look. Great weight, classic pear shaped head, not a giant toy-head. Not too light or clingy, etc.
I am not long off the tee, very average at 230-260. I will tell you this about the G20, and it's only my opinion, however, going by this website, it's a lot of other people's too. This driver is as forgiving as any driver, and is LONG LONG LONG. How do I know this? Because I am a Marshall at a country club, and so I play the same course over and over again for free.

There's a particular short par 5 that you can easily take a 4 iron off the tee to avoid massive fairway bunkers, land short of the bunkers, then hit only an 8 iron to get to the 100 mark, then a wedge and you're 2 putting for par. Simple...... but most people try to clear the bunkers with a driver, it is done by about 50% of the people on the course, some by luck, some by skill. The other 50% land in the bunkers or go OB. AS I said, I am not long off the tee so I never could drive the bunkers, I always hit an iron off that tee.
I got this driver 2 weeks ago. But only yesterday tried to clear those bunkers, it was late in the day and wasn't going to finish 18 holes anyway, so said what the heck. I pured a drive, middle sweet spot, and viola, cleared the bunkers. I had only 200 yards left on this par 5 in to a protected green. Hit 3 wood, and did not land on the green, pulled it a tad, was green-high though, just left. Chipped and putt for bird!
