TaylorMade R11 Driver

When it comes to golf, there’s no rest for the weary engineers. The latest volley into the epic battle for longest, baddest driver continues with the upcoming TaylorMade R11. Using a small wrench (included), the driver allows for not one, not two, but three axes of adjustability and customization, which can affect up-to 100 yards of side-to-side trajectory and 1,000 RPM in backspin. A new aerodynamic shape also results in faster clubhead speed yielding drives up to 6 yards longer than the R9 SuperTri. No small feat. Modifications are made through an (A) Adjustable Sole Plate which allows for face angle adjustment, (B) Movable Weight Technology to adjust ball trajectory left to right, and (C) Flight Control Technology, which allows golfers to adjust loft. Essentially, the R11 is a real-life crib sheet for your lackluster driver. Oh, in case you’re wondering about that smooth white driver crown, it isn’t designed as a response to the lack of a white iPhone but to reduce sun glare that plagues glossy-black drivers. Full review coming soon. Arrives February 4, 2011 – Pre-orders start January 6. Learn more.
