My R11 Irons Review

  • 2012/02/01(水) 18:17:39

TaylorMade R11 Irons Features: Ultra-thin face thickness promotes faster ball speed and distance. Inverted Cone Technology promotes faster ball speed and distance on off-center hits. Multi-Functional sole increases playability from a variety of lies. Progressive topline thickness promotes confidence at address throughout the set. Advanced groove design promotes increased spin and control.

I'm a shade under a 9 handicap. Good driving sets up my game for good scoring. Typical solid rounds are a lot of pars and some bogeys, limiting the damage to a double-bogey or two. 1 or 2 birdies a round is my average. I'm not a very high-ball hitter and prefer lighter weight shafts, but standard swing weight irons. I can effectively play 'off-the-rack' setups out of the box as they're very close to my actual specs. I've been playing TaylorMade MCs for the better part of the summer with success. I've ONLY played forged irons for several years because I LOVE forged feel. I've tried some cast clubs and disliked every one.

They're solid. I've tried Burner 2.0s and the feel/size of the club heads just weren't for me. These fall in the middle. If you like the Burner 2.0 concept but dislike their feel, these R11 Irons will surprise you. Not only do these feel nice for a cast club, but they have good feel overall. Frankly, I'm impressed.

These are longer than my normal clubs by about 1 clublength. I'd say the long TaylorMade R11 Irons are a bit longer than that, possibly a club and a half. I'd add a 3 iron if I could. I think it's easy to hit. With Burner 2.0s, every once in a while, there'd be that flyer that would travel 15 yards further on an dead, solid perfect strike. I have not experienced that with these. Distance is long and consistent.

The heads are larger than a typical players club. These are geared for scratch to 20 handicaps, so they will be larger than others. The heads are progressive in shape, but that's not noticeable when playing like Burners. The leading edge is sharper and there's less camber to appeal to a better player. I believe you will feel better when use yourself.

Beautiful and Forgiving R11 Irons

  • 2012/02/01(水) 18:15:39

TaylorMade R11 Irons are made for maximum forgiveness, but they also have beautiful looks. Their beauty isn’t just skin-deep. They’re beautifully balanced and they incorporate a ton of technologies that can help golfers of all handicaps become better players. TaylorMade R11 Irons successfully combine stunning looks with cutting-edge technology and amazing performance.
The TaylorMade R11 irons follow in a long line of irons that are very easy to hit. When you look at them, the first thing you notice is their over-size heads, which site beautifully behind the ball without looking too chunky. The top line is a nice width and the progressive offset, that increases as you go up the set, is not too pronounced so even better players will appreciate the lines of the TaylorMade R11 irons.

There’s very little doubt that TaylorMade R11 Irons are the best irons the company has ever created for players from scratch to 20+ handicaps. In several ways, they combine the best of the TaylorMade Tour Preferred and Burner 2.0 irons. These clubs are the real deal for golfers.

Like previous models the heads feel light and are effortless to swing. The ball went on a nice medium high trajectory and the feel right across the face was lovely. With the centre of gravity rising through the set, even the long-irons are a joy to hit and better players may choose to stick with these rather than go for a hybrid as they are just as easy to hit and more accurate.

Given that there is decent sized cavity in the back of the heads, you hardly notice it visually and the sound at impact of the TaylorMade R11 irons is very good, whilst not being as completely solid as say a blade iron. They are very forgiving on mis-hits, although this forgiveness makes shaping the ball a little harder if you are trying for small fades or draws.
