Forward CG for High Launch, Low Spin Performance
R11S fairways employ pull-face construction to create a thin, light, fast clubface that promotes high ball speed. The crown and walls are made using our Ultra-Thin Wall (UTW) casting process to reach 0.6 mm at their thinnest point. The thin crown weighs less, and that weight is used to move the CG position forward. This forward location increases ball speed by reducing dynamic loft and creating better launch conditions. Though it’s slightly counter intuitive, we’ve found that rearward CG locations on fairways actually create a reverse vertical gear-effect, since impact dynamics are relative to the perpendicular of the head loft. This reverse vertical gear-effect produces a lower launch angle and higher spin-rate, which are undesirable because they reducing distance and overall playability.
Clubhead Size and Shape and Appearance
The face-depth of the R11S fairways is 36 mm to provide the optimum combination of face area, confidence and playability off turf. Increasing face-depth while maintaining ASP and FCT and achieving satisfactory sound is a major engineering feat. The flat white crown colour of the R11S fairways make them appear slightly (2%) larger due to its white crown colour and a black PVD face which provides the optimum contrast for more consistent alignment for all players. The crown colour also eliminates the high intensity hot spot that is commonly found with all gloss finish metalwoods.
Shaft and Club Specifications
R11S fairways are standard length (3-wood / 43.5”) and equipped with Aldila RIP Phenom 70 shaft, a 70-gram shaft designed with a medium-firm tip profile. RIP shafts incorporate reverse inter-laminar material layup to more stability at impact. This package delivers more distance and control without the harsh feel associated with some firmer tip shafts.
Please Note: TaylorMade does not include a wrench with this Fairway Wood.
