Lots of companies makeadjustable drivers, but no company has embraced adjustability more thanTaylorMade. Since the 2004 release of the r7, a black driver trimmed in yellow and red, thecompany's flagship driver has always been adjustable. For 2012, that trendcontinues with the release of the white-crowned R11S on Feb. 3. The R11S is not radically different from last season's top-of-the-lineTaylorMade model, the taylormade r11s driver, but there are a fewevolutionary differences. Last season's R11 featured a 440-cc head, but the R11S hits the USGA's maximumlegal size, 460cc. TaylorMade says the bigger head combined with better aerodynamicsmake the R11S a little longer than the R11, and it has a slightly-largersweetspot. The club should also do a better job of helping golfers maintainball speed on mishits. The adjustable sleeve that connects the shaft to the head can be set in aNeutral, Higher or Lower setting. The Higher setting adds 1.5° of loft(transforming a 9° driver into a 10.5° driver) while the Lower settingdecreases loft by 1.5°. "In many cases a golfer may not be able to see that much of a differencewith the smaller sleeve [used on the R11], but the larger sleeve is going togive them the ability to dial in that launch condition to be exact withoutchanging the spin rate," says Tom Olsavsky, TaylorMade's senior directorof product creation. There are 80 different ways you can set up the taylormader11 driver sale, and according to TaylorMade, the club offers 140yards of left-and-right adjustability. "All in all, the package is going to give the golfer a little higherlaunch and less spin than the original R11, which should translate to moredistance," says Olsavsky.
