I was going to say compass, I think the N made me think of that.
I do like the strategy of having almost all the lofts in one club. The clubhead has a good deal going on top there, we'll see if folks like that.
Compass was the first item that came to my mind, too. Then I thought about turning the dial... It would seem to interfere with the aerodynamics of the club.
Yes, that's an aesthetic issue. For some, it may get in their head.
My experience is that once I hit the club a few times, that issue disappears - like a white paint job. Also, once the clubhead starts moving, I'm not thinking graphics. If the clubs performs, it works.
It's hard to tell from the photos above, but it looks like a fairly assymetrical and deep clubhead... Perhaps the graphics on the crown are to distract from this. The flux capaciter-looking device on the sole looks out of place and poorly integrated.
Aesthetically this is a swing and a miss for me... I'll keep the R11!
