Pro's R11 Specs


Recommended Posts

Dj, Rose, Kaymer, O'hair
Got my issue of Golf Magazine a couple days ago and saw a Taylormade ad that I thought was interesting. It shows how some of the guys have their r11's setup.

Whats a typical ball speed for a 105 swing speed
[/quote]


A typical 105 should be around 155-157 if you are in the right shaft....I am around 106-108 and will usually have a ball speed around 160-163. Shaft is so important in getting these numbers. Although, when I hit the stock R11 with the 60 gram Blur-Stiff in 9 degree...was near 170 ball speed!! Ridiculous what that shaft does..!! Have to try the 65 gram in the TP!!

Is anyone able to explain how the ASP works? I can only imagine it will affect how it sits on the ground when club is on the ground. But if the club is hovering ...

Yes it does only affect the way the club looks while it is on the ground which is where most people determine if it "sits" open or closed and make grip adjustments accordingly. You can then hover the club all you like.In the closed position the metal triangle sticks out of the base causing the club to sit closed at address. In the open position the metal triangle is up in the base of the club, makes the club head roll right at address giving an open face angle. If you hover the club from the start never touching the ground and adjust your club in the air then you are not in need of ASP.

Just had a look at the videos on the taylormade website and they are excellent insights. I have only hit the R11 once and wasn't overly impressed. I think I will give it another go and see how dialed in they can get me.

I tend to hover and hold the face what looks to me to be square even if the face angle is set closed. ( I play a R9 and set it 1* closed ) So, what you are saying above, is that this cancels out the ASP? What about setting the face closed? would hovering the club square at address cancel this, too? I've always wondered....

They have the guys settings posted somewhere that I saw... Even did a commercial about it I think.

Those are some low spin rates my man. Especially for the SS they have.

[size="3"]Cool Data, however, I call BS (on TM -- not the OP lol ) on the consistent 10g and 1g weight throughout for all the players......[/size]

Kaymer is 10 in the heel and 1 in the toe so he's different. It makes sense for the others if they are trying to avoid left.

I think he's probably referring to the fact that some maybe have different weights in their heads. Each head was probably different, and the guys all might like different swing weights.

TM left it as 10 and 1, because thats the combo the retailers will sell to the average joe.

Justin Rose increased 30+ yards?!?! Something is off on either his beginning yardage or the end result. He is still averaging 286 yards according to PGAtour.com driving stats (yes I know how they take this measurement and might not be the most accurate). Another TaylorMade skew of the numbers. Good for them. I hope they continue to sell the tinker toy drivers in which 98% of those who purchase will never mess with the settings. Me? I will keep bombing the Krank Rage driver. It has one setting.
