Great club for begining and experienced players
Well made. Dispite the pink grip(changed now), it came at a great price and shipped fast.
Hits really well, has 3 types of adjustment to really dial it in and get you hitting straiter shots. Looks great. Feels good in the hands. Lots of control.
Cons: white club head gets dirty (easy to clean)Read full review...
Sometimes the best golf club is not the most advertised, the highest priced, or the favorite of some well-known golfer. Used clubs in half way decent cond. can turn the trick for the ave. golfer. After a few minor adjustments, new grip, etc. this is 1 of those clubs.Read full review...

I love the club
I love the club, I've have one R11 9 degree stiff here and one south, just replaced my home driver with another R11, for my swing it gives me the most distance and roll, demo'd others but this is still my fav. I wouldn't suggest a stiff shaft for everyone.Read full review...

Great club, probably the best driver I've used.
The Taylor Made R11 driver gives you 2 main options for changing the ball trajectory with the shaft alignment and weight distribution. Not sure if the the weight pad for closing or opening the face does anything but is just cosmetic for the club. Overall this club is great, it has allowed me to hit straighter with top spin and a lower trajectory.Read full review...
What a club! If you don't add 25 yards - give up the game!
With slight hesitation, purchased a TaylorMade R11 9.5 degree driver (standard stiff shaft) online through ebay - "sight unseen" for 50% less than would have paid at a retail store. Never did this before! Went on the range that night when my package did arrive within a few days as advertised with my trusty torque wrench in my back pocket and proceeded to "dial-in" the club loft (dropped down to a 8 degree)and weight heel/toe distribution (invest in some extra weights).
Where I have lost a few yards over the years and been fighting a week fade - IT ALL WENT AWAY THAT WONDERFUL NIGHT! How lovely that all of a sudden, I had a slight draw - something that went missing after two kids and one ex-wife! Played two days later with my favorite group of local hackers. Hit 13 fairways (pulled one left when I got too frisky with bravado) with an extra 20-40 yards (with extra roll)! Should have seen the look on their faces when they pulled out their wallets. No one could or wanted to believe the extra distance. But seeing is believing!
Now to be truthful and in full disclosure - I also read a great article on lag putting in Golf Digest on the plane coming home and didn't three put all day but went and shot my best round in 15 years - a 74! This is a guy who only gets to play maybe 10 rounds a year anymore... and most are captain's choice charity event. Maybe I might take up the game seriously again (used to be a 3 HDCP)if I can get rid of my day job and sell my company!Read full review...
Impressed but no advantage in length to me
I am a TaylorMade user and have the R11 I just bought plus a 3 and 5 fairway superfast plus a 4 hybrid together with a superfast 10.5 driver (abandoned for the R11.)All these have ladies shafts as at 85 I am chasing after distance age is robbing me of.The new R11 has an M shaft.All about the R11 is spot on appearance shape color etc but I am disappointed with lack of any gain in length.Maybe it is there somewhere but I have yet to find a configuration that would help me.I might have to go back to the 10.5 superfastRead full review...
Love the aesthetics and configuration options. Always consult an expert.
Long time golfer and have used TaylorMade drivers for a lot of years. I like the flexibility of the R11 settings, played with various combinations at first but wound up back at the standard settings. I find that the driver is pretty forgiving but can't honestly say there is a lot of difference between it and my previous driver, the R7.
The one thing I like about it is the white head. It definitely gives you a sense of confidence when swinging the club and watching the head pass through the hitting area. It "looks" like it is larger and therefore the perception, if not reality, is of a larger hitting surface. I have found that mishits do seem to adjust more to the target line than with the R7.
All-in-all, I would recommend golfers to try it along with all the major brands to find what is right for them. I hit the Ping G15, Titleist 910D2, Adams Speedline and Cleveland Launcher.Read full review...
Excellent product, as advertised and hyped by the manufacturer,
I hit about 100 balls on the range and then played a round of golf on two different days last week. The club was 10 to 20 yards longer than the Great Big Bertha that I had in my bag before. The technology is better than the 15 year-old Callaway club. I have a swing speed of about 90 and hit about 250 yards on a good day with a carry of 200-plus yards when I hit the ball flush with this club. I am 63 years-old and I hope that I can regain some of my dwindling power and distance. The R11 is more forgiving than the Big Bertha I had. Although I have not made any adjustments to the driver yet, I hit a draw easily and consistently with the R11. Now all I have to do is work on my swing so I don't duck hook it, pust it to the right, skyball my drives, or hit a weak shot off the toe or the top of the club. Then I can hit 250 yard gentle draws with good roll more consistently. The vendor I got this club from is a PGA pro at a major Florida country club. He is reliable, knowlegeable, and reasonable. I would use him again and again if I could get my price on golf equipment.
May 9, 2012 update. After less than a year, I noticed a rattling sound inside the club head. I called the factory in California, and after some confusion they were extremely helpful. They sent me a new R11S free of charge in time for a trip to Myrtle Beach. After such an extraordinary service from the manufacturer, I will ways recommend TaylorMade to friends and family. With the new R11S, that has the same specs as the R11 with even more adjust-ability, I am now hitting 55% of fairways, averaging 220 yards, and have taken off about five strokes from my game. I miss right and left about equally, and occasionally adjust the face to compensate my tendency on a particular day or week. Most often, the driver is set up for a slight draw, since this is my preferred flight path for distance. This is terrific for a 65 year old man who plays twice a week and is a 13 handicap. Now I can work on GIR and Putting and Chipping, since I have confidence with my R11S driver, R11 3 Wood, and R11 3 Hybrid.Read full review...
