TaylorMade R11 Driver Available Tomorrow
By Kickntrue on 2/3/11
It's been getting all the hype. Starting tomorrow you can buy the TaylorMade R11 White Driver.

From TaylorMade's Press Release:
Simply put, the white drivers are taking the industry by storm with accolades from media, Tour pros and retailers all giving these game-changing drivers high marks. Available in stores tomorrow, Feb. 4, TaylorMade Golf Company booked 156% more in white metalwoods in January 2011 than it did for all in-line metalwoods in the first quarter of 2010.

In addition to its visibility on camera, TaylorMade's revolutionary drivers were painted white to satisfy the demands of discerning PGA Tour players who continuously requested maximum contrast between the club face and the crown of the driver. The white crown color and black PVD face of the R11 and Burner SuperFast 2.0 provides optimum contrast against the ground to the clubs easier to aim. This advantage is even more pronounced in lower light, such as when the tee box is in shade or shadow, on overcast days or when the sun is low in the morning and in the evening. The crown color also eliminates high-intensity "hot spots" caused by reflected sunlight that afflicts gloss-finish metalwoods.
It's one thing to hype. It's another to say something looks awesome- but what I'm curious about his who will put their money where their mouth is. It looks like the stores are buying into the hype- with those booking numbers mentioned above- but will any oobers be dropping the $399 ($499 for the TP version) for the big stick?!

That's a lot of dough!

I'm waiting for the R23.
A definite improvement on the R17.

@Kurt haha.... this seems like a perfect driver for me given the fact that it has a great aiming tool, I am afraid to demo it because I don't want to like it more than I already do
dottomm says:
I like the 'white', though admittedly it's totally gay.

I hope they manufacture and sell a ton of their drivers. It will tend to make the re-sale market very affordable for cheapskates like me!

at the demo day, i spoke with a guy at the nike booth and asked him if he thought they would ever release a white driver and his response was "maybe for a women's club"
Banker85 says:
@mustang6560: Haters at nike, they didnt think of it and market it like Taylormade is doing. If i had the money laying around i would buy one first thing tomorrow. I dont. sux.
billbadaz says:
this is when knowing a Taylormade golf rep comes in handy. Can get a new r11 for less than 200$

Neo says:
After seeing this I ponied up for a new 910D3
gobonds755 says:
I hit this club today for 18 holes. Great club. Love the feel off the face and the white was surprisingly fine. I didn't think I was going to like it originally but I was impressed by the driver. It is also extremely light.
knh555 says:
What would it cost to repaint your existing driver white?
billbadaz says:
i was more impressed with the muscle cut forged irons coming out that the r11, although it was awesome. the burner is soo damn light
dave0498 says:
Don't know if I'll ever get it but I do like the looks and the looks of the white putter.
Banker85 says:
i tested it today at Dicks and it was wonderful. The white is not golssy at all, its like a matte finish. the club just flows so nicely great weight to it. awesome i told the guy at dicks to hold it for me but i doubt it will be back.

The price if the very reason having a PGA father and owning a club shop is so much fun!
pennsafety says:
I love when all this new equipment hits the shelves...On saturday,I was able to pick up a new 2010 Titlelist 909D comp driver for under $200.00 and hit 65% of the fairways first time out in windy conditions...The ones that missed were sitting on the 1st cut!!!! Taylor Made who??????

Hope to have it in my bag before spring. Custom fitting will have the last say.
