TaylorMade R11S Makes a Step

By: abadam


“We’ve increased the range of tuning and incorporated it into a maximum-sized 460cc head – that’s what sets the R11S driver apart.” -Todd Beach TMag Metalwood R&D-
For TaylorMade Golf Company, it is important to launch the new R11S driver at the Qatar Masters. When it was launched, many people were attracted by its beautiful outlook. Its developed technology will help golfers improve their skills. Lan Watts, the director of sports marketing for TaylorMade-adidas Golf Europe, said: "We are delighted with the unprecedented success, which has been validated on tour by becoming number one driver model."

The TaylorMade R11s Driver is an upgrade built off the successful launch of the R11 driver last season. Featuring the same moveable weights, loft and lie adjustment, r11s driver allows for loft adjustability of up or down by 1.5*, face adjustability to one of five angles (±3°) and CG (center of gravity) adjustability toward the heel or toe.

TaylorMade r11s driver features a new 5 way face angle piece on the club sole. When it comes to feel, the r11s is lightyears ahead of the R11 driver. The ball actually feels like it is coming off the face with some pop instead of the dead feel of the R11. The sound is also pretty nice and muted and a nice thwack.

With the new Flight Control Technology sleeve you are able to increase or decrease the loft of the new taylormade r11s driver by 1.5° by selecting one of 8 different positions. With the improved Adjustable Sole Plate Technology you now have 5 different settings to choose from. A 6° range allows you to independently open or close the face of the new R11s driver by 3°, without affecting loft.

Movable Weight Technology (MWT) allows you to tune the driver's center of gravity to promote a draw or neutral ball flight. Putting the 10-gram weight in the heel and the 1-gram weight in the toe moves the CG closer to the heel to give the R11S a draw-bias, which promotes a right-to-left ball flight. Putting the 1-gram weight in the heel and the 10-gram weight in the toe moves the CG toward the toe, making the R11S neutral to promote a neutral, or straight ball flight.

The contrast between the white crown and black clubface makes it easy to align the R11S Driver accurately at address. The matte white finish eliminates hot spots and glare to promote improved focus. The white head looks larger to promote more confidence and a fast, free swing speed.
