The TaylorMade Rescue 11 utility club features the same white head and black face as the R11 driver and fairway and this certainly makes it easy to align, as well as giving the illusion of being larger than it is, which is perfect for this type of club.
The steel head is made using a pull-face construction to allow for a thinner club face for faster ball speeds and minimum weight. The adjustable flight technology enables you to change the face angle by plus or minus 2 degrees and the loft 1 degree up or down to get the right trajectory for you and we would recommend going to a fitting centre with a flight monitor to get the right settings for you as you may be surprised with what you end up with.
Compared to previous versions of the Rescue, we really liked the look of this head at address. The white colour looked great and the small offset and longer head meant it looked very playable.
One of the best things was the excellent Adilia RIP shaft that is fitted as standard, although other options are available. This is a very stable shaft that is light and gives a great feel.
The sound of the club at impact was great and the low centre of gravity got the ball up on a good trajectory.
The Rescue 11 is available in 4 lofts from 16 degrees up to 23 and a half degrees in the standard version or a TP version that has more shaft option and both of them are well worth a try.
