I've had my R11's for a few weeks now tinkering with the options & shafts. I've been hitting my 8.5° R9 SuperTri TP against my 9° R11 TP as I figured this would be the closest in specs to compare as I don't have any R9 SuperTri or SuperDeep over 8.5° in loft to compare to my 10.5° R11. I haven't been able to get on a launch monitor yet to compare numbers but I haven't found too big of a difference. As far as feel I found they are both the same, the R9 SuperTri feels a tad softer but for the most part IMO they feel the same. I've found that the R11 is not as easy to work the ball than the R9 SuperTri but it's straighter off the tee. The R11 is a bit longer than the R9 SuperTri (not sure if it's due to a different shaft), I'm getting a great high, flat penetrating ball flight with the R11 which is a tad bit higher flight than how my R9 SuperTri is but again it could be due to the fact my R11 has a Aldila RIP 70 TP shaft & the R9 SuperTri has got a Fujikura Motore F1 85-X, when I fly home for the holidays I'm going to see my instructor & jump on his launch monitor to compare numbers. I'm going to try & test the two using the same shaft in the same specs or as close as I can get them to test the same so I can see the real difference between the two drivers. All in all the white head is taking some getting used to at address but other than that it's the sexiest driver I've seen, the looks at address ,the feel, & distance are all great but we all know that TaylorMade has always been making great drivers. It should be interesting this year as Cobra, Ping, Callaway, & Titleist all have some sweet drivers out now & I wonder who will compete with TM. I really like the FT Tour & Cobra ZL drivers but I'll always be a TaylorMade driver guy, just love the look & feel of them!
