Hi all,

you may have seen my earlier post on which you prefer out of the TM RBZ or R11 range as I am looking to upgrade and I now have a friend of a friend that works for people that know people at taylormade....blah blah blah and I have the opportunity of the below but need to make a decision tonight to get the order in and the clubs made otherwise I cant get them due to the Xmas period coming.

Please can you give me your advice ASAP on this?

FYI my swing is fairly fast, I currently play with TM R7 regular shaft and if anything I will slice the ball rather than draw it. My handicap is heading towards single figures but am currently having lessons to change my swing to have more stiff arms with more shoulder rotation and more extension on the follow through.

so I need to know which set you would go for and what shafts you recommend, stick with regular or go stiff?

Your help is greatly appreciate:

RBZ:

Irons 5 - PW

DRIVER

WOODS 3 and 5

RESCUE

R11s:

Irons 5 - PW

DRIVER

WOODS 3 and 5

RESCUE

The price difference is £30 more for the R11s set and in total the price is less than half the cost in the shops/online so don't want to miss this opportunity. Also if you had the choice between a 3 and 5 wood which would you choose?

Many thanks all

Personally, I'd go with the R11s.  The reason is I have hit both - and the RBZ is decent, but I like the R11s line better.  The question I have is why aren't you hitting both - and making the decision on your own?

If you swing 'fast' - I'm assuming you have decent club head - and swing speed?  Again - a big assumption.  Without knowing your actual swing speed - I'd order stiff shafts.

I know what you are saying about making the decision myself - I had planned to go to my local American golf shop to try these clubs and other brands out but then this offer came along and scuppered my plans a bit so needed to make a decision as cant let this offer go.

Like I said the cost for all this is well under half price and they are being made and coming directly from the factory.

You are correct - fast head speed, I dont know exact speed but the coach says it is fast

Why don't you still go to AG and try both sets, with regular and stiff shafts, and make your own comparison. You don't have to buy them just 'cos you tried them.

Just tell AG you are looking to upgrade and need help making your decision.

Then go away "and have a (theoretical) think about it", once you've hit them.

You will then have a real idea as to which set you need to buy from whoever.

Tough call -

When unable to decide and the needed forgiveness is close, which look better to you?

Personally, I like the RBZ line, as long as you're talking the RBZ irons that are decent looking and not the Max.

Get the 5 wood first, then the 3 wd.

Thanks for the responses people.

I cant wait for the R13 range as I will not have this offer of getting all this equipment for under £500 made brand new from the factory.....so based on what you said I managed to get him to give me 1 more day to make a decision, went to my local American golf and tried out the RBZ and R11s range in both stiff and regular shafts and have ordered the following:

R11s Driver 10.5 degree, Fairway 4 wood, Rescue and 5 - 9 irons + PW & SW with stiff shafts.

I found these really suited my swing and style best offering the best range of adjustments of the loft etc.

They are currently being made as we speak and I will have them in 3 weeks

Thanks all for your advice.

    • A little status update 30 rounds into the season:  - Taking small steps in the right direction. Index currently on 10,3 and I will probably see the "9" sometime this month. Positive trend.  - Season best so far is 83 from the yellows (6350 yards). Separate best 9s is +1 on the front 9 and +3 on the back 9, so it should be possble to stitch a sub 80 round together with good flow and focus through 18 holes. I still have never played 2 good 9 nine hole stretches in a row in my life, so this still might not happen. I have shot rounds in the 70s 3 times from the front tees this year though (5300 yards) - Still have a long way to go with the driver. The misses are fewer, but I still hit way too few fairways with the big dog (30-40%) - Just a question of time before the eagle-goal is achieved. I've given myself some chances on hole 1, 9 and 10 so far this season, and more will come.  I feel my game from 150yards and in has improved a lot this year, while my long game is still very inconsistant. My putting has also been ranging from brilliant to weak (26-40 putts). Focus is something that I still need to work on, and I still let a couple of bad shots influence my confidence in several situations. 
    • Visiting Florida from NY.  Played Indian River Preserve.   Shot a 93,  best of my year so far.  Problems off the tee with driver on most for whatever reason, snap hooks for 175 yards, but stayed in play.   Got 2 birdies, both par 5 (only 2 tee shots with Driver that were good).   Both I was on in 2 with Driver then 3H.  Then Driver 3w on 18th hole, which I lipped out the 15 foot eagle putt for a tap in birdie.    Also had 32 putts which is great for me.  Slowly getting better at putting by getting the speed right 
    • Still learning I guess. I didn't know that you don't get the fedex-bonuses for invited players, like Higgo. Got the longshot winner, but no bonus, kind of an anticlimax....  Congratulations to Bunker Jon for taking down the segment.   👏
    • I can see if golf buddy is interested. My son is getting married the weekend of the 31st and I do have some club events that month.
