I had an R11 before I got my 910D2. I gave the R11 everything I had and I just couldn't hit it. I do better with the 910D2.

I love my 910 D2. R11 would be a great driver if you don't get the stock shaft. The Diamana Kai'li is a great shaft that comes with no up charge on the Titleist.

Are you in the Socal area. I saw an ad yesterday. Somebody trying to trade their R11 to get a 91D2.

I personally love my 910D2. Have Really started hitting fairways with it and killing the ball. May just be the confidence but the driver sure feels great. I havent even tinkered with the settings to much yet.

Poll is 8-0. Haha. Looks like you have your decision.

I really don't get how RBZ is the top selling driver right now. Taylormade has put out some real junk lately. They need to go back to Superfast 1.0 and learn something from themselves.

Guess I'm in the minority, but I hit both the R11 and the D2 last year when I was in the market for a new club. Ended up going R11 and have been very happy. However, I loved the D2 and probably would have been just as happy. This obviously is of little help to you....haha. Nice position to be in!

I got fit and hit the r11 and the D3 (vice the d2) extensively 2 weeks ago. Not even close. I ended up with the Titleist.....and I'm coming off a TM r7 that I loved.

Another minority guy.  I recently got the RBZ and absolutely love it.  I'm mainly a Titleist guy but I hit the 910 and the RBZ and it wasn't close...for me.  First time in an outing with it I won longest drive, and believe me that isn't my game.  Heck I didn't even consider myself the longest in my own group let alone 120+ golfers.

Granted I did get a great deal on it from my local pro also, but I just liked it better than the Titleist personally.  Hit them both and see which one you like best.  I've hit the R11 and it's a fine club as is the 910.

Get fitted. Even the best driver can be crappy with the wrong shaft. There is so much to a driver. I would have stayed with my R7 but it balloons shots and loses distance for me but maybe the shaft wouldn't for you. Only a fitting would tell. I actually loved the feel of the Cleveland classic driver but I wanted a little adjust-ability. The ball speed and carry was less with the Cleveland but the machine could have been calibrated differently. I don't know if they do that.

I hit the titleist D3 and the R11S. Played a round with both. I liked the D3 except the shaft not right. I hated the R11s and the shaft was supposedly right and the loft was correct. I didn't care for the white head either. I ended up buying a D3. It is shipping as we speak.

long drive sponsored by Taylormade? Did you beat them by 17 yards by any chance?

I played rounds with both, and, the RBZ.... didnt like 910D, or R11 , also took out the 3 wood for each club, ended up buying the 910F 3 wood and the RBZ driver. I heard it all from people I play with about the RBZ, how its got a stupid name, and how the white club is bothersome, funny though how none of them out drive me since i got my stupid bothersome club. buy what you feel is best for you, not what others think is best

14-0 for the 910D. I couldn't hit the R11 or RBZ driver. The white didn't bother me at all, but for some reason I couldn't find a good swing with it. I haven't been playing for a while because of injury, but before then, I was hitting my 910D2 very well. Want to check out the 913 when it comes out just to see the improvements. But probably after I'm all healed up.

Not at all.  Believe me; I'm the last guy to believe in any club manufacturers hype.  Heck if any of it were true we'd all be hitting 400 yd drives based on all the additional yards they've claimed in the past 5 years.  Like I said, I'm pretty much a Titleist guy throughout my bag but the fact was I just hit the RBZ better.  A lot better....

I love my 910D2. I'm shocked though that the R11 hasn't gotten a single vote yet. 19-0? Seriously?

I'm also a minority, I love my R11S with the 60g stock stiff shaft.

The clubhead "feels" heavier to me than any other drivers going back to my Nike square Sumo.

My main joy of the R11S is the way the ball comes off the clubhead, at first I bought RBZ but didnt gain any distance and took it back the R11S and quickly found out the R11S is completely different club, not just the add'l adjustability.

I took the OP to intend a comparison between the original R11 and the Titleist 910D 2

The R11S and RBZ are different drivers.

If I remember, many people did not like the stock shaft of the R11 or its overall feel. But they did like the adjustability.

I heard more great things about the 910D2 than the R11 - the Titleist system of adjustability seems superior as well as the feel, and from comments, the 910D2 is more forgiving.

    • @Yff Theos Cp cf hit v swing  etc... None of these antiquated and mistaken false dichotomies have much relevance.   Saying a thing like a cp swing has low rate of closure and cf has high really means little.  Also you mention that you know how effective teaching either would be based on player type?  Sounds fishy to me. Correlating roc to skill at ballstriking is highly questionable. Instagram and you tube are not teachers.  IMO if you really want to get somewhere it takes years of experience.  IMO you sound like a person that absolutely correlates kinematics and skill.  Modern research is beginning to find that this is not the case as previously thought. online we all love data and some folks get all into the techy discussions about details.   Ultimately though information is just that.  The player has to execute the shot and that doesn't happen by analyzing the number three accumulator and also it's not a deal where you simply choose how to swing based on the quality of information you know.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and there are variations in athletic tendencies.   Mac was a great athlete and totally obsessed with golf.  Maybe it's easy for you to think well I like his mechanics so I will swing like that and teach what he did. But...  
    • @Golfingdad, as you know, he said "2-3 rotations." And the pixel math was on an angle that would make it as short as possible. And when you're talking about 10.56" vs. at least 18", that's a significant margin. Even 15.8 vs. 18" is a non-negligible percentage. But since you brought it up (while I happened to be in front of the TV): 1472.08 ball to hole, 263.62 width of the hole.
      263.62 / 4.25 = 62.02823529 pixels/inch.
      1472.08 pixels / 62.02823529 px/in = 23.73241788 inches. Almost exactly two feet.
    • That's a shame... so much talent. I hope she makes the change.
    • I used a launch monitor today and recorded ten swings from 5 clubs. These were all full swings at about 80%-90% effort. Everything but the driver was without a tee. The employee suggested I discard the duffs, but I decided to keep them. They lowered my averages but I thought they were a good "snapshot" of how I hit. No real surprises on distances or side angles (other than the pull hooks with my 5w), but the numbers on the driver may have provided something to work towards.  I have to do a better job of controlling my low point. Currently, I seem to be bottoming out too close to the ball. I'll have to review "How to hit the driver further" thread. 7i   5w   5i   Driver   4i
