Taylormade r11s driver review - Club Wars 2012

TaylorMade’s R11S was probably one of the most hyped clubs of this year’s release. Next to its partner in crime the RBZ, we were fairly excited to swing the R11S. Taylormade has always been the pioneer in driver adjustability, and they took their Flight Control Technology (FCT) to the next level. Now being able to close or open the face 3 degrees, and adjust loft 1.5 degrees either way, this driver is super versatile for any type of golf swing. It is a smaller club head, which is why it is deemed to be more of a "tour level" club, so forgiveness wasn’t very high. The R11 S finished well in the stats category, a decent average of 106.9 MPH in average club head speed, and a distance of 259.5 yards. The R11S surprisingly generated more spin than anticipated. The higher spin was the reason for its average showing in distance.

The versatility and superior adjustability that TaylorMade has infused into the R11s have made it a solid overall performer in Club Wars 2012. The R11s is recommended for the golfer who is under a 15 handicap and looking for supreme adjustability.

With a bulky feel and look at approach you can really see the size difference compared to last years R11. When tuned, shaping shots can take a little more effort than you would want. But when all is set to standard your shot shaping is as easy as it comes.

The trendy look of the R11S along with the multitude of adjustable technologies HAS to inspire confidence when approaching the tee box! The red adjustable sole plate at the bottom provides a range of 6 degrees to open or close the face without affecting loft.

The black finish on the clubface helps to focus on the alignment of the ball.
At the tip of the shaft the flight control technology can be seen. This feature allows adjustability of loft in the driver. The R11S driver can increase or decrease loft by as much as 1.5°.


The shaft is a stiff Aldila RIP Phenom 60 at 63 grams. It has a tip size of .350 and a mid trajectory.

From the top line, the white crown and the slim view of the black club face allow you to align the ball easily at address. The trendy TaylorMade white crown not only looks slick, but it also eliminates glare to help promote focus when striking the ball.
