I finally got round to trying my brand new clubs out last night on the range. as you may remember I took delivery direct from a friend at Taylormade of a full set of R11 irons ( 4 - 9 + PW/SW), R11S driver, R11S 4 wood, R11S rescue and white ghost putter at a quarter of the retail price.
All I can say is they are amazing.
The irons are solid, give plenty of feedback and have unreal distance, control and launch angles. The driver is insane - I know I will need to do some adjustments with the loft and weight but for the time being leaving it in neutral to play a bit with it to make absolutely sure of the adjustments needed and the rescue and wood are fantastic.
I really couldnt get over the distance and feel of the irons, I moved to stiff shafts from regular but still they are a million times better than my old R7 set.
not only all that but they are shinny and new :)
I just need to make the decision on the ATV or XFT lob wedge now as he is going to give me one of them for free - advice welcome.
Thanks for all the advice I received in choosing the clubs, greatly appreciated - just looking forward to my first round on Sunday now.
