Overview-

TaylorMade has become synonymous with high tech, quality golf equipment.  They have arguably been the largest presence in the golf manufacturer arena in the past decade.  The new TaylorMade R11 is without a question, another stellar driver, slated for 2/4/2011 release.

Technology-

The movable weights of the trailblazer R7 coupled with the adjustable hosel from the R9, has been joined… TM raised it one.  The rotating sole plate is what separates the men from the boys.  The role of the sole plate is to independently changes the driver face angle by as much as 48 settings!  The end result?  The adjustments in the loft and lie from the hosel do not affect the appearance at address.

The driver definitely touts a new look: a satin white finish, along with the black face.  This creates an appreciable contrast between face and crown to help you align the club more easily.  The white finish is also meant to reduce “hot spots,” a common byproduct is glare.  It’s definitely a nice, nice looking driver by all standards.

“It’s ahead of the curve visually.  They tried something different and it works….”

“The adjustibility is complex but not complicated.  The soleplate is idiot-proof”

“It’s easy to work this club any way I want, and the distance is superb”
