Post TaylorMade R11 Driver is what you want
Before the R11, all hosel based adjustable drivers had a fairly significant limitation - you couldn’t adjust the loft without also adjusting the face angle. So TaylorMade added the new Adjustable Sole Plate to the R11 to add a third "dimension of distance". Taylormade Rocketballz RBZ Driver So golfers can now adjust loft, face angle and flight path separately.I took the R11 to the driving range at Deerfield to test the "3 Dimensions of Distance" (as TaylorMade calls it) to see if I could find the right R11 for me. To start, I hit it without adjusting any of the settings. The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to hit. My first five drives on the range went right down the imaginary gut and the trajectory and ball flight matched my typical shot shape (isn't it funny how the first few shots with any new club are always awesome?). I hit a few more drives and then decided it was time to experiment with the first dimension of distance - loft.

The loft of the R11 is controlled by Flight Control Technology, which is built into the hosel. With FCT, you can increase or decrease loft by one full degree, so you really have three drivers in one (9.5, 10.5 and 11.5 degrees). Taylormade Rocketballz RBZ Irons I used the wrench (it's included) to add one degree of loft because I wanted to see what it would be like to hit an 11.5 degree driver. And the results were what I expected. My trajectory instantly increased well beyond the recommended 45 degrees so I dropped the loft down to 9.5 degrees, which provided the optimal trajectory for me. Now, it's time to adjust the second dimension - face angle.
