At first, seeing the white arch of the r11 did yield some time to get acclimated to. I about like added archetypal shapes and colors such as the TM V-Steel or the Titleist 904f/906f fairway woods. The accomplishment of the arch is a nice white matte accomplishment that does abate glare. If the accomplishment was glossy, I actually would accept gone a altered route. The atramentous face allegory with the white acme is adorable and does advice to adjust the club bigger and I anticipate Taylormade did a abundant job with the blush scheme. There are some arrangement about the bend of the acme that is a little distracting, but already you get acclimated to it, it is a non agency at address. The acrylic arrangement on the banal Blur shaft was nice and akin able-bodied with the all-embracing arrangement of things. The headcover was aswell nice, but I would accept admired an all white or mostly white headcover to go with the white fairway head. |
Standing at abode over the club does affect aplomb as the white accomplishment seems to accomplish the arch assume a little bit bigger. With all the FCT ambience in aloof and the ASP bowl accepting on aloof as well, the club sets up actual aboveboard in my eye. Again, abundant searching down and seeing a aboveboard club at address. I can actually see myself arena an R11 disciplinarian and even possibly an all white 5 copse or Rescue hybrid.
Feel and Sound:
Before arena the R11, I had a Nike Sq 2 and V-Steel 3 wood. Both, and I anticipate a lot of of you would agree, were abundant performers in the sound, look, feel, and achievement categories. I would not alternate to say that both are apparently abstract in the fairway dupe department.
Right out of the box, I could acquaint that the R11was arch heavy. This initially was gonna be a botheration for me as antecedent fairways I’ve played did not feel this abundant behindhand of head/shaft combination. Afterwards demography a brace of convenance swings alfresco the house, the club acquainted acceptable and stable. Again, somewhat added than I’m acclimated to but I could acquaint actually area the arch was on my aback and down swing. I yield the R11to the ambit and hit about 30 assurance with it. The arch feels added aerial than the V-steel that I was acclimated to. It has a added silent/muted “thwack” complete if hit. Not necessarily a bad thing, but again, I was acclimated to the complete of the V-Steel which I still anticipate is one of the best, if not the best fairways anytime produced. The brawl did feel hot off the face but didnt accept as abundant “feel” as the V-Steel or the Sq2. I was a little bit aghast but afterwards the ambit session, I got acclimatized to the acoustics of the R11.
Now we get to the aliment and adulate of the R11. During the aboriginal ambit session, I was hitting the brawl with appropriate ambit and my accustomed achromatize that I hit with a lot of of my clubs. Despite the allurement of aggravating to blend about with the FCT and the ASP, I absitively to accumulate the ambience on neutral. Afterwards slowing down the downswing, as I accept a agitated downswing, I was authoritative bigger acquaintance and the Blur was responding better. Afterwards the range, I went to the advance to yield it out for its aboriginal round. Aboriginal hit was a low announcement that didnt go too far, maybe about 150 yards. Again, added of my accountability for accepting a too advancing downswing. At the 3rd hole, it was about a 430 backyard par 4, I hit a tee attempt that commonly would accept gone about 150 yards, but concluded up aerial to about 190. I hit the brawl on the face a little college than accustomed but the brawl still went a acceptable distance. I alone acclimated the R11on about all tee shots and was hitting nice 230 backyard fades. Brawl flight was a nice acute mid aisle and had acceptable cycle even admitting I usually dont get much. On a par 5 in the aback 9, its about 500 yards to the green. I accomplish a nice compact, bland beat with a little added and actually nut one. I analysis out the gps and see that I was about 245 yards abroad from the green. A 255 backyard drive…not bad! Overall, I’m still accepting adapted to the R11 and to the way the Blur plays and feels. For the baby bulk of time I’ve had with it, it is actually a affectionate arch and the brawl comes off the face actual hot. Shots abreast the toe and top off the face still get affluence of ambit and accede this 3 copse one of the best fairway finders out. At the end of the round, I hit added fairways than I commonly do with my V-Steel and if I was in the rough, it wasnt too far offline. I aswell could acquaint that ancillary circuit was beneath with the R11 than antecedent fairway dupe which is abundant for me back slices pop up every already in a while. I’m still in the amusement period, but for now, I anticipate I accept assuredly begin my 3 wood!
I anticipate the R11 is actual nice. It is actual affectionate and the attending of the white acme and atramentous face is amazing to me. Complete could accept been bigger and would like a little added feel on the club face, but I’ll acquiescently barter that for the absolution it offers. In conclusion, I would accord this a solid 9 out of 10 appraisement and can possibly go to a absolute 10 with added circuit played.
