Summary: I bought the R11 9 degree head for my Sister, I had already bought the woman's R11 shaft. It's hard to find a women's R11 Driver below a 10 degree. She is using it in Florida this winter. I personal have all TaylorMade Clubs, R9 Driver, RACs Irons, Dual Hybrids. Would noly use TaylorMade.
Summary: I have to tell you, the last 20 years haven't been easy on me. Ever since that little pr!ck Bud Fox turned on me and spilled the beans on my insider trading scam, I've been struggling to get back to where I was. The truth is, I never should have bought into the whole Blue Star Airlines thing. For cryin' out loud, Bud Fox's dad worked there. I should have known it would turn out to be a horrible buyout.
Summary: I bought this club cause I have a couple of friends who swear by the R11. It's a beautiful Club, The only problem is I can't hit this very well. My ball trajectory is very low even adjusting it from the standard 9.0 to the higher trajectory. I had a friend hit it and do OK (sliced it though)but he hits everything high. I need to do alot more practicing with it. I do look good though. Please note, I'm not a good golfer. I shoot in the 90's and play once a month.
Summary: This is a very good driver that is easy to hit but, if you do not have a hard fast swing speed, I would stay away from the TP...this driver will help improve your average distance. I would purchase it again.
Great club for scratch and low handicappers only; critical sweet spot

Summary: Mine came with the Aldila 60g Blur shaft. The club came weighted for draw with the heavier of the two weights in the heel of the club. I hit a few and found this set-up totally unacceptable -- I exchanged the weights, moving the heavier weight to the toe. This made it feel better but launches were still too low. I changed the shaft to a Matrix HD 5 stiff and this solved the launch angle problems.
Summary: I've played the R11 for most of the Summer and just lucked my way into a new R11 TP Driver. Both have the Fuji Blur shaft in them, with the TP obviously being a little bit better of a shaft and while both are 'Stiff', I think the TP is actually more of an extra-stiff shaft. As far as performance, the TP has little different from the regular R11.
Summary: It is a great driver. I upgraded from an old R5-580 and I feel as if I am driving it straighter. However, for some reason I feel like I have lost about 5-10 yards on my drives. Maybe I am just miscalculating or swinging the club differently. Overall a great club.
