TaylorMade R11 Looks Fun
By Kickntrue on 12/22/10
The word "voyeur" gets such a bad reputation (though mostly earned), but there is nothing wrong with want to sneak a peek at these amazing spy pics of the new R11 from TaylorMade.

MyGolfSpy.com has a few of the best pics I've seen of the new driver. It's definitely... different. I don't know how I feel about the whiteness (I'm still all into my all-black Machspeed Black Nike) but I do like the shape, and isn't that the most important thing?!

I guess I'll find out soon. I spoke with TaylorMade last week and they told me they'd be sending oobgolf one in about a month. I guess you guys should consider that good news as well.

Hmmmm, I'm not sure I like the white color. Cobra has the ZL driver in white as well (Poulter is playing it). I guess if it performs, I could get over the looks.

I don't mind the white but wish they would've figured a way to go all out- including the face. Make it White on White on White- with a white shaft.

I think weird thing is to me is regular face with white head. With black head- it works because it's a "matching" color, but not with white.

/i dunno...

The sound is outstanding as well. saw a video of it on TM's facebook. it has that nice high pitched "TINK" off the face rather than the "THWAK" that most metals have today. Reminiscent of the old bertha's, remember that sound? pure perfection.

I would be happy to take it off your hands, even if it was hot pink... Worst case, if it performs but you don't like the color you can customize it. the other day my club's starter gave his Burner 07 a face lift by painting it Deep red over a yellow base giving it a candy like appearance. Hard to describe with words but it did look pretty cool.

I like it. Its keeping with the White Ghost theme. The only thing I don't like is the red movable weight on the head. What happened to keeping that on the shaft?? But other than that, I like how it looks. 9.5/10.

@Kinckntrue I had no idea. What are the going to do for the next model an R13? Which makes logical sense or will the skip it and go to the R15?

When I played hockey back in the day I always liked black tape on my stick to hide the puck from the goalie. But when I tended, I preferred white tape on my stick and white pads so I could see the puck.

I need to see the ball make contact with the club. Not sure I would want an all white driver and probably the reason the face is still metalic looking. Not to mention scuff marks and impact marks etc...

If this were all black. I would p/u in a heartbeat once the astronomical price tag went down. I just picked up an R9 TP for dirt cheap and can't wait to play it in the spring. Not that it will help my game any.

Banker85 says:
@elhacker: if you want an all balck driver that performs great with good price ($130) try the taylormade tour burner www.oobgolf.com/equipment/drivers/Tour_Burner_36

i love it and i am sure those who have it (birdieXris) will agree great performance, great sound and feel, and good looks!

@birdieX
I love that "Anvil Steel" sound of my Bbertha. Prolly won't change because of that alone.
I get surprised by some of the "KLANK" sounds I hear from some drivers. Like a beer can on a stick.

birdieXris says:
@ banker - Yea i'll definitely attest to that. I have two. I also have yet to find a driver on the market that can beat it, ask Kickntrue. I spent a good hour at the 19th hole each night trying new ones, not to mention every time i go to golf galaxy. :) Maybe this will finally be the one that beats it?
