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.

    • n=1 with the SM bag. I carried today, and took 12 clubs. The SM bag is much lighter than the Ping Hoofer. It was so light that I feel like I could add my 4-iron and LW in the bag and still not be bothered by the load. However, the fabric/materials also appear thinner/lighter weight. Not that this means it is less durable, but maybe it could be. The Hoofer fabric feels like it could survive a cataclysmic event. The SM bag straps are a little wider and less thick than the Hoofer, but equally comfortable. The pad that rests on your back on the SM is thinner and not quite as comfortable as the Hoofer, which is padded by the rain hood in the pocket behind the pad. But the lightness of the SM bag meant it was not any less comfortable. The SM bag hung a bit more horizontal than the Hoofer, which gave me the uneasy feeling that a club might fall out (none did), so I need to adjust the straps to get this right. Not really a problem. The pocket design and configuration on the Hoofer is better, at least to my preference. I missed the easily accessible magnetic pocket on the Hoofer (where I kept my range finder out of its case). I used a carabiner to clip the rangefinder case onto the bag. It makes getting the rangefinder out and putting away take a little more time, but just something to get used to. The leg unfolding/folding mechanism works great. Overall, pretty pleased with the SM, although like I said, only n=1.
    • I just explained what happened and asked for any tips on removing/installing so I don't deform another grip. Never had this happen to such a large extent (sometimes there is a tiny bit of stretching on the lower part of the grip, but never the top part) on any other Pure grip, so I'm hesitant to try another adjustment without changing my technique. So I'm hoping they'll say what happened was unusual, or I used too much pressure, or to hold the grip in a certain way to prevent that, or something like that.
    • I have a membership to TheGrint.    They have a place for rounds attested.   Since the guys I golf with aren't members and I will not ask them to verify a round via an email, I have 0% attested.   If I play a solo round I count it as a practice round.    My handicap although official shouldn't be any different than a solo round.   I can't prove it wasn't solo other than my integrity.    If my integrity is good enough for 0% attested rounds, it should be good enough for a solo round.  
    • So what laws do you dislike and ignore? 😛
