TaylorMade unveil R11S fairwayDecember 19, 2011 Golf Equipment
Check out the most adjustable fairway wood ever made...
TaylorMade have launched their most adjustable fairway ever.
The R11S, which accompanies the revolutionary driver of the same name, features a new Adjustable Sole Plate (ASP) and Flight Control Technology (FCT) sleeve to offer 24 different combinations of face angle, loft and lie.
This allows users to fine-tune their ball flight in fittings or simply eradicate a bad shot they suffer from. For example, if you struggle with a slice, you can straighten it by closing the face using the ASP.
If you want to hit the ball higher or lower without changing your swing, you can, too – simply increase or decrease the loft (you can change it up to 3°) using the FCT.
The R11S, unlike many previous TaylorMade fairway woods and others currently on the market, features a forward centre of gravity. The brand’s research suggested that placing weight low and deep launched the ball high but actually increased spin. Where TaylorMade’s engineers have positioned it offers a good launch with less spin. This, coupled with a thin, powerful face offers lots of distance.
“It’s never been easier to tune performance in a fairway wood than with the new R11S,” said TaylorMade Executive Vice President Sean Toulon.
“We’re confident that more golfers than ever before will unlock significant performance gains through a proper fitting and a few clicks of the wrench. The technologies we’ve incorporated into this clubhead are unparalleled.”
