PostSubject: R11 driver & 3w field report   Sat Mar 05, 2011 3:41 pm

Folks
just wanna share our experience using the r11 which my buddy bought and I get to give it a go this morning in nsrcc
(1) Driver 10.5 deg US specs reg flex
(2) 3 wood Jap specs stiff

we all read bout the white head against green fw contrast. So I wun say more bout that.

Driver: set to all neutral settings. It felt light at address. My buddy (9 hcp) keeps pushing the ball right. A touch of fade. He also has the 910 d2 10.5deg in reg flex which he hits very well, can hit high, low, draw, fade most of time on demand. But he just cannot work the r11 driver! I gave it a go too and felt that the driver head is lagging behind at impact causing it to be open at impact. He soon got used to it and managed to bomb a couple of long ones

3w: sits nicely behind the ball. I thot I hit it sweet but again pushed right. My buddy said gotta hit HARD (I get worried everytime I hear that). Slowly, he can control his push fade to straight but cannot seem to draw it. But mind u, this 3w us beastly long. My buddy hits it longer than my g15 driver (serano s flex). He also remarked that it is longer than his r9 3w

overall: asthetically, white is this season's colours. R11 is not for everyone. Somehow, guess the head is heavy causing it to be open at impact. I'm hopping he gets the superfast 2.0 (he is also equip junkie) then I can share our experience. I hear that it is easier to use despite a longer shaft... Till next time

Thx for sharing. I used the r11 for the first time. Out of 14 fairways, I hit only one. Push fade badly. Got to get used to it. I noticed that the launch is very low.
Not that it is not good, but must get used to it.

Soh des neh... So we are not alone in our push fade using r11. Told my buddy to go driving range change the settings to draw but he is reluctant. He dun want a close looking face at address. Haiz... Guess he can't be a bit lazy swinging the r11.

Well I'm not complaining, if he persists and still push right, then hopefully I can win some bets from him loh

LOL... i m trying to get used to it.... the head is very light compared to my previous driver .. so i guess the down swing is affected... hopefully can hit well with it!

just used mine on the green today.. used the:

R11 Driver 9* S flex (US Specs)

R11 3W R Flex (US Specs)

Driver:
Must say that the driver tends to fade.. my ball position that used to give me a draw now gives me a straight shot. I find it easier to hit it on the fairway as I used to pull or slice 1-2 shots with my old driver but hardly with this (maybe cos of the heavier weight).. However, I seem to need to swing harder at this fella to achieve the same distance as my previous driver. (Flightmates tell me I'm not used to it yet...)

3W:
Not sure if I'm just lucky today but the hits with this 3W were accurate and far... I think I've finally found my 3W! Easy to use and I feel very confident at setup. Love it!

So I guess it's a good buy for someone who pulls/draw a lot in their drive. I was thinking of changing driver to those that can adjust so the face is a little open at address hence may counter those pull shots. But R11 only has 9 degree. I used to using 9.5.

The ASP and FCT allows you add/subtract 0.5 deg of loft to make it either 9.5 or 8.5. D-uh! hehehehee...

Hum? You mean superfast 2.0 right?
Same weight but I think superfast 2.0 is easier to handle... for a rookie like me.
Thinking about switching but still adamant to try taming my r11

....... TFP I'll contact you soon Very Happy

I tried my friend's R11 and Burner SF 2.0 on my last game... like the other bros said, 3x fade shots when using the R11 (neutral setting) but slight draw with the SF 2.0 and my current Burner 09...

I also find that the Burners sit better on address as compared to R11 and even my previous R9 drivers, i guess it boiled down to the design of the head - R11 is generally more rounded.
