here's a look at what you cannot get at retail....

no oversize cap on ferrule...



its a hybrid of the first generation and current adaptor. apparently better response and feel and a lot more robust than the retail adaptors. however with the new R1, my guess is everything might change.



the ferrules are at the Den and NFS. and you are not seeing things, its 2 degree adjustability.

Obviously tm lost it in 2013 n need a compass to find their way.

Eric points out there is 2 degrees of adjustability in the r11 tour adapters n the r1 is supposed to have 5 degrees.

Seems like driver designs are more and more like racing cars or formula 1 inspired. My last TM was R9..will they ever go back to classic shapes and color?

i had a word with a tour rep in charge of the #1 driver on tour.....i mentioned that the best driver in the last 3 years have been the R9 Super-tri.....

silence.......

then he revealed that tour players are known to go out and buy them cos they don't have them in tour-issued any longer.

so i rest my case about what's the friendliest and best TM driver

DGman

having said that i am looking forward to my new driver (thats supposed to be extremely long) which is due to arrive anytime now....

We get some 1* and 2* adaptors from time to time. Currently we got some in-stock at BFG Indonesia, both the R11s and RBZ color. Wink

As for Supertri, I do believe that the Supertri is better than the current offerings. Although I found the RBZ is close enough.

Yarra, what about your opinion on the R11s? *fishing fishing*
