TaylorMade R11 Driver Review
The TaylorMade R11 driver actually attracts attention for the matt white surface as well as we have to say we liked it. It not only looked extremely striking on the shelf but at address it was extremely simple to line up and the white head disappeared off putting than any other colour. Combined with a timeless driver head form the R11 ticked all the boxes prior to we reached business of hitting the ball.
On a check out to the TaylorMade fitting centre at Kingsfield near Edinburgh, we had a chance to play around on a trackman system to locate the maximum set up for our swings with the R11 driver and also you truly do need some form of system similar to this to accurately determine each setting to find the right one for you.
With 48 set-up mixes readily available to the golf player any type of input you can receive from the professionals to guarantee you obtain one of the most from this outstanding driver the much better. The conventional Fujikura Blur shaft is a whole lot better than the typical shafts have actually remained in the past and also the audio and also really feel are superb too.
The single plate change does change the face angle rather dramatically as well as you would certainly have to be quite unhappy with your FCT (Flight Control Technology) readjusted face to want to utilize the sole plate to alter this.
It just actually functions if you ground the club behind the round initially and after that take your grasp, as or else we struggle to see the actual benefit of this as the loft and also lie are currently ‘locked in’ by the hosel change and can not be individually changed.
We feel it requires more graduated choices of less than 2 levels on the single plate to make it much more useful. TaylorMade state that the major factor for the sole plate modification is to provide the gamer a lot more confidence and that subsequently will certainly cause a better swing as well as more confidence so it will really depend on you whether you locate it helpful or not.
That claimed the R11 is a really great driver and also we are not amazed to see it offering well. The audio and also feel at influence are great and with all the modification options you will certainly locate a setup that will boost your drives with the help of a skilled player.
If you have an R9, you might not see a great deal of performance benefit in changing to the R11 unless you favor white, but also for everyone else this is a should attempt costs driver if you can afford it.

TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver Review
The TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 driver not only includes a modification in head colour to white, but also a number of new technical features to create what TaylorMade state is their lightest and longest variety of timbers to date. The Burner Superfast 2.0 driver includes a brand-new head design that is quicker via the air due to enhanced the rules of aerodynamics.
Compared to the original Burner Superfast driver, the crown is much more rounded and a little taller at the front, causing smoother air flow. The rear of the head is lower and also slightly more back to move the center of gravity back as well as down to advertise a higher launch. The new shape additionally indicates that the crown can be made in a single piece as well as the wall surface reduced to simply 0.6 mm thick in position, which is 40% less than comparable motorists in the marketplace.
To create more speed the Superfast 2.0 features a 45 gram Matrix X-con 4.8 shaft that is not just lighter, yet much longer at 46.5 inches. The complete weight of the club is just 279 grams as well as this combination of head and shaft creates more clubhead speed as well as consequently much more range, albeit perhaps at the cost of some accuracy.
The huge aesthetic change of course is the white colour of Burner Superfast head and the matt white finish also looks larger and also lowers glare or ‘locations’ where you obtain the representation of the sun if you are fortunate adequate to play in it frequently. At address the Burner Superfast 2.0 driver looked quite triangular, which might not be everybody’s favorite, but we liked it. The white head as well as black face was definitely very easy to line up at address. The face is a bit a lot more shut than the R11 driver to offer the ball flight a little draw predisposition, or to make it go straight for all you faders available.
The club did really feel extremely light and also it took a while to obtain utilized to the longer shaft, once we did the distance was extremely impressive. The feel and also forgiveness at impact was great even if the audio was a little plain as a result of the shape and size of the head. The Burner Superfast 2.0 driver is offered in 9 and a fifty percent, 10 and also a fifty percent or 13 degree versions and also is excellent enjoyable as well as well worth taking a look at. However on the designs we evaluated the paint on the back of the sole of the club started to wear away so take care of them.
Much better gamers can take part too as the Burner Superfast 2.0 driver is additionally offered in a TP version which has a 1 inch shorter shaft, a 1 degree open face as well as a taken care of toe weight to stop the clubhead passing on at impact to produce a neutral or fade predisposition for much better players. We truly suched as the TP variation as the head shape was a little a lot more rounded and also it rested a bit much more square at address. The shorter shaft was extra convenient and also we think better players should consider this also over the R11 driver.
