take note for this driver the face is shallower.. you may need to change your tee up height accordingly..

Have been using this driver for 1-2months.. absolutely love it.

I also think the R11s is more solid than the RBZ or the Burner ...

Yea, some pple prefer the R11s to the RBZ. I somehow think that the R11S is better for someone with a consistent swing or someone more pro (maybe handicap 18 and lower?). The deeper face gives more distance. I was using the R11, and could bomb a couple but my swing is not consistent enough and was being punished heavily for it.

RBZ is better on mishits for me. And I seem to be able to find the sweetspot better with the shallower club face. I hope it stays that way so I dont have to burn a hole in my pocket again Smile

Among so many Taylormade drivers I've tried, RBZ juz don't works for me. And I did much reading to find that something is quite true, RBZ extra distance only apply to golfer with much consistent swing tempo and swing speed, it's not going to be the same for mid to high handicapper. Once on mishit, the ball will just fly all over the place.

For the wood, I played 2 games and I know I hate the feel out of it. Now got a new R11S wood and at least I manage to put 2 shots on the green from 200m in a game and the feel off the face is so much compact.

I think anyone will like to get the RBZ, do visit the demo session for more then once (as you may have different form on different day, yeah?) and see if you really get the extra distance.

Another thing to note is that the recent batch of Fujikura Motore shafts, for the Asian spec, on the r11s are quite well made, much stable. The last that Taylormade stock shaft are good to me was the R9 TP many years back.

Playing the r11J now and absolutely love the smack of the titanium face! Also no more blaming the weights when the ball flight ain't straight, coz there isn't any for the J series.

RBZ is more forgiving and easier to launch... D2/3 is more suitable or players with more consistent swing. Have u tried the R11s? It's only a bit more expensive than RBZ, but its more versatile and u can change the setup when your swing changes...

why bother what's others are using. It's what you are comfortable with......my flight mate was using a fit with fubuki k 60S that day and he was almost every hole out drove by a senior player using a very old TM R7 ltd ed.... pale ....only consolation is that club is non conforming.....

@Starbucks : If you dun mind, why not get a Ping G20 or a G15 if you can..

Driving has always been my archilles heel.. and Ping drivers are well known for their forgiveness , length and has helped me built confidence of the tee...

Check out the following sale... comes with aftermarket Tour AD shaft.. Why not consider this instead of the rbz...
