Today I will make a review of the TaylorMade R11s driver. This driver came on the heels of the new RBZ line, and by the sounds of this review, it my have been a mistake by TaylorMade.
The TaylorMade r11s driver, the next generation of the Taylormade R11 driver australia features plenty of innovation on the 460 cc club head design. Similar to any TaylorMade wood these days, the R11s features an all white crown with black clubface. The club head utilizes a triangular shape that provides a higher MOI by utilizing deeper, farther-forward CG position.
The RBZ is much more compact, sleeker, traditional shape design that appeals to my eye more. TaylorMade designed the RBZ to make it one of the longest and most forgiving drivers on the market. The Flight Control Technology of the RBZ allows players to alter face angle, loft and lie angle for increased accuracy and distance – which basically means, there is an RBZ option for you. The contrast between the black face and white finish, with a slim bit of lime looks fantastic.
The R11s is designed to allow the player to manipulate ball flight. Testing yielded basically a mid ball flight with minimal movement. With a few of the adjustments of the club, I was able to produce a much higher launch and ball flight. I struggled with a slight push on many of the shots. Distance was average. Maybe my experience with the RBZ spoiled it, but the R11s failed to meet my expectations.
I was not disappointed as the TaylorMade RocketBallZ RBZ Driver basically performed as advertised. The biggest surprise was on the first swing. Seniors beware, this club is LOUD. Yet, the sound should hardly deter players from auch a solid driver. I found my best drives held a mid to high trajectory. My carry distance is easily as far as my current driver, if not farther. My misses generally produced a higher ball flight, yet still went fairly straight.
The R11s has a heavier feel with a D4 swing weight. Impact produces a very loud crack (almost too lound, in my opinion). The ball feels fairly consistent due to TaylorMade’s patented Inverted Cone Technology, which promotes a larger sweet spot on off-center hits. There was not a big difference on off-center hits.
without a doubt I can say the RBZ makes some noise, but it’s almost too loud. With that said, I love how the ball jumps off the face, and how solid off-center hits feel. This driver had a fantastic gear effect that helped keep poor hits from going sideways, and generally kept them pretty close to the fairway. The weighting feels great and the clubface feels easy to square through impact.
The TaylorMade R11s is one of the most technologically advanced cheap golf clubs available today. The RBZ’s Flight Control Technology allows players to adjust the performance angles of the RBZ driver to one of eight settings.
