The TaylorMade R11 Driver is the next revolution in golf club adjustability, combining Adjustable Sole Plate (ASP) Technology, Flight Control Technology (FCT) and Moveable Weight Technology (MWT).
The Introduction of Adjustable Sole Plate (ASP) Technology allows players the ability to adjust the TaylorMade R11 Driver face angle independently of the loft, which is a groundbreaking development in golf club adjustability. The ASP sole plate provides ±2° of face angle. Thus, golfers can create three lofts with the same face angle, or they can further accentuate a face angle or counter a negative face angle. Additionally, the combination of ASP and FCT effectively doubles the range of face angle for the club.
Altogether, the combination of ASP, FCT and MWT gives golfers 48 ways to set up the TaylorMade R11 Driver to promote up to 100 yards of side-to-side trajectory adjustment, the most of any driver on the market. Combining full FCT and MWT settings promotes a launch-condition range of 2° launch angle and 1,000 RPM. The FCT system is extremely sleek and streamlined, resulting in less mass and a lower clubhead CG location compared to hosel adjustability systems in competitive drivers.
The TaylorMade R11 Driver includes two weight cartridges. To create a neutral bias, install the 10-gram weight in the toe. To create a draw bias, put the heavy weight in the heel. If a more neutral setting is desired, 4 and 6 gram weights are available.
The TaylorMade R11 Driver is designed with a sleek yet sophisticated clubhead shape that is intended to suit the eye of better golfers, while still providing forgiveness and confidence for average golfers. With a more contemporary appearance than traditional drivers, the club creates a unique and sleek silhouette at address.
Aesthetics aside, the triangular shape creates more inertia and a deeper back CG position for improved stability and forgiveness. Due to its color, this 440cc driver actually appears larger than it is at address, making it a wonderful confidence builder for golfers.
In fact, the white crown color and black PVD face of the TaylorMade R11 Driver provides optimum contrast against the ground to make the TaylorMade R11 Driver easier to aim. This advantage is even more noticeable in lower light. The crown color also eliminates high-intensity “hot spots” caused by reflected sunlight that afflicts gloss-finish metalwoods.
