Hi all,

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.

I have the R11 irons, 4-AW, love them.  I also have the xFT wedges, 56 and 60, I would recommend both, whatever feels better to you.  The ATV's sole was huge!  It was ridiculously uncomfortable!  It felt like you couldn't hit a flop, I did though, tried them out at golfsmith!  The xFT is more of a players wedge, it is less forgiving but is easy to shape shots. It also has a changeable face, so if the grooves wear out, just buy another $40 face.  I also got them for wholesale price, my friend works closely with TaylorMade and Cleveland.

Thanks for the reply. I have decided to go for the gap wedge and the xft lob wedge as i can have both brand new for £30 so figure that is a great bargain and i have room in the bag for them. I am hearing a lot of people getting on well with the xft so good times.

    • I voted no as he is what he is. The alleged child abuse (if true) would be unfortunate and could explain why he seems to disown his parents. His personality could still be what it is, with or without the alleged abuse. To me, it's none of my business and if he wants to talk about it, that would be his choice and not mine. Notwithstanding all this, he is still a great golfer who would beat me with one hand and one foot tied behind his back and I appreciate him for what he is.  
    • Do you have a swing thread going? Maybe you should  create a swing thread with your videos. Go to ‘Members Swings’ and upload your videos from YouTube then post the links.
    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
