So the R11 drivers only come with a 10 weight and a 1 weight. You can either put the heavy one in the toe or the heel, essentially making it draw bias (heel) or fade bias (toe), right? So my question is why do they only sell them like this. I want to make the driver as neutral as possible so Im thinking of buying a 6 weight and a 4 weight and putting them in. What do you guys think, will this make it more neutral or am I missing something with this driver

How about opening the face and weighting for a draw?

Your post is right.  The whole point of the MWT is to be able to customize swing weight and ball flight with out changing the orientation of the face if you like.  Purchase a weight kit on ebay and have at it with the wrench at a range session.  You will dial in your ball flight and get the feel of the driver head the way you want.

If you put the 10 gram weight in the toe that is the neutral position according to the info I have. There is no fade bias position with the standard set up, just draw and neutral.

hmm, yea I just saw that on the taylormade website. I wonder how much that is true though, how can having the 10 gram weight in the heel promote draw but then putting the 10 gram weight in the toe make it nuetral. Wonder how much of it is just marketing since they cant include many weights off the rack.  According to that, if you put a 5 gram weight in the heel and a 5 gram weight in the toe, it would still be slightly draw bias.

That is true because without the weights, there is a natural bias toward the heel. The heavier weight in the ote balances that out. To get a fade bias, you would need to replace the 10g toe weights  with something lighter, like a 4g.

If you hit a slight fade what weight set up would you put???? Then should I put the heavier weight in the toe.

I would think so, but Iam asking the same question, maybe I have been doing the wrong set up.  Need help on this.

if you are having a problem with hitting a fade, then you need to put the 10 g weight in the heel and the 1 g weight in the toe, making it draw bias. Check out the taylormade website. You can do more adjustments if you have a weight kit, but whenever their is more weight in the heel than the toe, it will be more draw

Sorry, I meant a heavier weight in the toe.

well since I had the driver I always thought it was nuetral if the 10 gram weight was in the heel since I bought the driver like that in the plastic. At the range today I changed it to the 10 gram weight in the toe and 1 gram weight in the heel. The driver felt alot different, felt really toe heavy. I normally hit a draw on all my clubs but I dont like it with the 10g in the toe, just feels too toe heavy. Actually feels alot better to me with the 10 in the heel.  Thinking of maybe trying the 6 g in the heel and 4g in the toe because sometimes I can overdraw it a bit but my swing speed and feel is much better with it more in the heel

I had 10g in the toe and 1g in the heel but switched to 6g in the heel and 4g in the toe and do like it better.  It's nice to be able to tinker with different weights. You can pick up extras online or at GG.

i have two R11's (9 and 10.5). Each with an X TP shaft. I also have a Superfast 2.0 that I special ordered from Taylormade (HD6 shaft tipped an inch and SST pured). The SF 2.0, in my opinion, is a longer driver. It's related to the shaft and the total weight. The R11 is a heavier driver... they may say they are same swing weight, but R11 is heavier total weight. So, I removed the 10g weight and now have two 1g weights, essentially taking 9g off the total weight. The R11 feels more comparable to the SF 2.0 now with this weight config. I've only done this about a week ago and haven't gotten all the info I want yet (having only played the R11 in this config a few times).

I agree.  R11 is a heavy driver.  TM website listed the R11 and Supertri swingweight both as D4, but my R11 feels much heavier.  I had to replace the 10g with a 4g weight, with 4g toe and 1g heel.  I also shorted the length by 1/2 inch.  I don't think all the R11s are heavy.  Maybe an early batch was made heavier.  I recommend adjusting the sole plate and trying different weights.

Putting additional weight in the toe works to promote neutra to a fade (when changing weights like I did putting a 14 g in there) because it acts like a counterweight, per se', to prevent the face from closing as quickly.

another factor in the head weight is the weight of the sleeve.  I believe thats about 8-10 grams also so these heads are weighing with stock weights at 210-212g for the 2 heads I have.  So I would think the 10 in the toe would counter the 8-10g sleeve weight.

10 + 10 works for me.  Don't know why, but it was the best combo so far.
