TaylorMade R11 Driver TP, AdjustableI can't believe my eyes. TaylorMade's new 2011 driver is going smaller! What happened to the modern day adage "bigger is better?" I just assumed by 2011 we'd have clubheads about the size of microwave ovens.

Au Contraire, my young apprentice -- TaylorMade is abandoning this theory for the "adjust the club to your swing for optimal distance" theory. (Never mind their brand new crazy, sick, long Burner SuperFast 2.0 TP Driver.)

With this R11 in 2011, TaylorMade has carried over their extremely popular FCT (Flight Control Technology) and the moveable weights from their previous models, the R7 and R9 respectively. "So what is new?" you ask. You mean besides that the crown looks like a bird pooped on it? (More about that later.)

TM has added a third dimension: A rotating sole plate. The idea is to provide a way to counter the adjustable hosel. You see, when you adjust the hosel using the FCT to give the driver more loft, it appears to close the clubface. Simply adjust the rotating sole plate to open, and voila! You have a brand new driver. With the new rotating sole plate, you have 48 possible face settings.

Not a big fan of the all-white crown, though. The idea is to reduce glare. (In the old days, they painted everything black to reduce glare.) The other idea is combined with the black face you have an extreme contrast that will help you address the club at the correct angle.

I like this club for mid to low handicappers. High handicappers should look at the aforementioned R9 and the Burner SuperFast 2.0 TP Driver.
