Taylormade R11 driver is the latest model golf driver...”

Written on: 07/04/2011 by hygolfcn (1 review written)

Taylormade R11 driver is the latest model golf driver from taylormade.

he R11 is similar to the various versions of the R9, with the pear-shaped head, deep face, and overall great looks. Like the R9, R9 SuperDeep Tp, etc.. the R11 features MWT (Movable Weight Technology) which allows you to adjust the club's CG to promote different ball flights, be it a draw, fade, or neutral. The provided weights on the R11 can result in up to 20 yards of side-to-side trajectory change.

It also features FCT (Flight Control Technology), which allows you to adjust the loft of the club, increasing or decreasing the launch angle of your shots. FCT is great in distance control, as it allows you to hit lower, more penetrating shots by decreasing the loft by 1 degree and reducing spin rate up to 500 rpm. Likewise, increasing the loft by 1 degree produces higher arcing shots with more spin.

TaylorMade R11 Driver toe

However, there are some serious design differences aside from the white finish. Notice the "ASP" on the toe if the R11 Driver? It stands for "Adjustable Sole Plate" (Look at the big red triangle in the first picture). This allows you to adjust the face angle of the club, promoting straighter shots by compensating for flaws in your swing. This Adjustable Sole Plate opens or closes the face 2 degrees, promoting the look you want at address, and the ball flight that results from a solid impact.

We can't wait to see how the TaylorMade R11 performs next year on Tour, and look forward to seeing all the big brands pushing the envelope of design and technology in their golf clubs. Our wish is the same as most golfers: to hit it longer and straighter, and shave strokes off our game, all while having more and more fun. The TaylorMade R11 might be the thing to do it!
