I saw a TM R11 J driver today at GH. Very nice orange colour. I believe it's the Japan version of the R11 S. Nicer than the red R11 S.

A lot of things are built only for Japan and don't exist on the non-Japan TM websites.

For example, I have a TM Raylor Ghost putter which is very nice. Not available outside Japan but found its way to the Isetan sales recently Smile

i'm not a taylormade hater. in fact, i'm using their hybrids and wedges. however, i really can't stand how they keep making costmetic changes to their equipment every few months, or add half an inch to their shaft, and then claim that these clubs 'perform better'.

just look at their r9 series. got r9 425, r9 460, supertri, superdeep, supertri bblb etc etc

i have greater respect for ping / titleist.

I tried the R11J sometime back, not much difference with the local market ones... hmm, guess its the cosmetics or the "Made in Japan" good feeling...

It seem to me that the R11J is a combination of BURNER SUPERFAST 2.0 and R11 technology. They should include lift and drag (Aerodynamic) statistic in the review.

Great driver! A friend just traded in his 3 months old R11S for the R11J after trying mine. Gained about 30 yards from my Callaway Diablo after tweaking it to 9.5 degrees.

I agree and disagree. It seems a little silly that they "improve" on each thing quite rapidly, and appear to repackage some of the same old stuff. They might be better suited to come out with all of the improvements each year or two, instead of what seems like all the time.

With respect to the series you made mention to.....

there is a considerable difference between the r9425, supertri, superdeep (bblb). They each provide different benefits to different types of golfers.

While I agree that they have accelerated their product cycle relative to some of the other companies you mentioned (ping, titleist both of which have had 2 year product cycles typically), I don't really see the harm. It is another item in the market and you either buy or you don't buy, it is up to you. Yes it affects the resale price of your gear, but the golf club companies, as far as I know, are not that concerned with the second hand market.

Marketing is what it is...and these companies (TM is not the only one) have expedited the product cycle to less than a year, it used to be a year at the worst. That is the nature of the golf industry today. Maybe it will change, maybe it will not.

I have always been intrigued about the hard to find Asian market stuff from some of the companies. Some really awesome stuff. Beer
