Since TM changes model every year....literally! I wonder if r13 will come anytime soon? Will it be black or still be white or may be even orange or blue?

We have probably seen all type of MWT being placed left, right, center... What else can TM folks come out with that is out of this world?

according to the staffs, they do a facelift every 6 mths and change every year. So I would expect a new RBZ sometimes in sept?

Yeah, possibly, it reminds them of auspicious Friday 13. Still, we can wonder what else TM can come out that wows the golf community... May something with 10 yards longer or 25 yards longer..

Super light weight driver that is D2 yet less than 250 gm...i.e. choosing the Cleveland way.. or even go back old school painting all the driver to be grey in color...

Found this on the net...


Taylormade r13 driver : Information

After the success of the r9 and R11 drivers, the release of TaylorMade’s third generation R13 adjustable driver was bound to cause a buzz in the equipment world.

But even before the pros at Kapalua start tinkering with TaylorMade’s newest model, they’ll notice the glaringly obvious thing that sets it apart—it’s white.

“The satin white finish, along with the black face, creates the maximum contrast between face and crown to help you align the club more easily,” says Tom Olsavsky, TaylorMade’s director of product creation (metal woods). Olsavsky adds that the white finish helps to reduce the hot spots and glare often created on glossy-topped drivers.

Rumors have been swirling over the past few months that TaylorMade was planning to release a white driver, but many those rumors failed to mention the R13’s new level of customization. In previous models, TaylorMade’s torque wrench was used to adjust the face angle, which automatically changed the club’s loft as well. In the R13, loft and face angle are adjusted independently.

In the r9 and R11, an aluminum sleeve attached to the shaft, which screwed into the head in a variety of face angles. Not anymore. Now the R13‘s sleeve has eight settings to increase or decrease the effective loft by as much as one degree.

Face angle is controlled by an adjustable aluminum sole plate. By moving the red triangular plate into the closed, neutral or open position, you can adjust the look at address. The face settings range from 4 degrees open to 4 degrees closed.

Like the r9 and R11 drivers, the R11 features weight ports—one in the heel and one in the toe—that allow for a draw or fade bias. The R13 comes with a10-gram screw and a 1-gram screw. Positioning the 10-gram weight in the heel promotes a draw, while putting it in the toe encourages a fade. According to TaylorMade, the movable weights provide up to 25 yards of right-and-left adjustability.

Because the club is so adjustable, the R13 driver will be available in only two lofts — 9° and 10.5°. Olsavsky says that’s all the loft options that are required, even for Tour pros.

To make his point, Olsavsky says you could theoretically set a 9° R13 to have an open face at address, a draw weight bias and an effective loft of 10°. The same club could be adjusted to have a closed-face at address, a fade bias and 8° of playing loft.

In addition to all that adjustability, Olsavsky says the R11′s head shape is more aerodynamic, making it at least 6 yards longer than 2010′s R9 SuperTri.

No one is holding guns at your heads forcing you to change clubs.. It's your money and you decide how you wanna spend it. From a business and marketing perspective, stagnation in current models is suicide, so it is you, the marketer's dream, that makes the company rich. You don't need to blame the company for your golf bag's vanity.
Frankly, i'd be rather worried if the brand i like decides to go to sleep for a few months. Smile
