The TaylorMade R11S fairway wood features a revised Flight Control Technology hosel that increases the range of loft adjustment by an extra 0.5 degrees either way. Now this does not sound much but it does mean that the different settings have a bigger effect on the flight of the ball.

Performance wise the R11S fairway is similar to the R11 as the head size is similar and most of the other features are the same. It sits very well at address and the sound and feel is good without being spectacular.

The adjustable sole plate is still there and only features 3 settings whereas the R11S driver has 5 and it would be good to have seen that in the R11S fairway, even though we are still not convinced by the merits of this feature.

Overall unless you need some more settings on your hosel it is probably not worth upgrading from the R11, but if you are in the market for a better player fairway then this is worth considering.

Excellent club to use even as a mid to high handicapper, after a few weeks I now feel more confident than ever before off the tee as in the past I was hesitant with my 3 wood and it was like Russian roulette how I would hit it, I have the 5 wood model but with the adjustments you can do with technology I have tailored it to suit my needs with a closed face and standard to low loft.

I feel I can now consistently lower my scoring as before getting this club my good scores was due mainly to my short game.
