TaylorMade Doesn’t Disappoint With New R11 Irons

TaylorMade finally finished their popular R11 series when they announced that their  R11 irons will hit golf retail stores this September. The R11 irons were engineered for players who appreciate the shape and refinement of a tour-grade iron but needs the help of advanced technology to launch the ball high, straight and long with less effort regardless of handicap.

Obviously the first thing you might notice about the R11 irons is their precision-weighting port which is bright red. The port has allowed TaylorMade to guarantee precision and center-face CG for optimal consistency and performance from one club to the next. The other thing you notice is it’s classical styling, definitely shows the traditional iron but you can tell it has been upgraded with new technology.

What might get overlooked is the groove design that TaylorMade engineers slaved over. With the USGA’s decision to roll back groove effectiveness in 2008 TM knew they had to adhere to the new stipulations to reduce the sharpness of the groove edges and volume to help reduce spin. Luckily for TaylorMade their engineers found a design that was better than the old grooves on the fairway. They went with a milled grooves, like their forged irons, that give the irons more precision and easily replicated.
