The Taylormade R11S driver has different movable weights and a new 1.5 degree FCT (Flight Control Technology) hosel sleeve system which offers a smoother shot that even rookies can enjoy. Because it is slightly more aerodynamic than the original R11 driver, speed and distance can both be attained easily. It is definitely a new design that many golfers have not ever seen before. 

While the expert's reviews are positive many are wondering if all of these adjustments are worth the extra money they are spending in comparison to the original R11 driver. The R11S driver may be a little longer with more adjustments but will they be used once it is adjusted to fit the user? The question they are asking is "why not just purchase a driver that already fits them in the first place? Wouldn't it be more affordable in the long run? Is all this tunability even necessary? The answer from many golfers is yes, they love the R11S driver because it is an innovative product that has many adjustments to offer a better game.
