Las Vegas, Nevada (August 13, 2011)–The R11 phenomenon–pardon the pun–has been in full swing for pretty much all of 2011. And now the R11 irons are debuting at Las Vegas Golf and Tennis on September 1. And as if you need extra incentive to check them out, store management is offering a free club fitting when you purchase the dazzling new irons.

From Technorati.com: "At long last TaylorMade finally unveiled their R11 Irons. TaylorMade’s latest expansion to the overwhelmingly popular R11 line was to create an iron set that was engineered for players who appreciate the shape and refinement of a tour-grade iron but need the help of technology to launch the ball high, straight, and long with less effort, regardless of handicap. Already tested as a forgiving and easy to hit club. The R11 irons are definitely not blades or a set of tour only clubs. Designed with more forgiveness in mind they appeal to a much larger audience. On the heels of Ping’s big announcement for their new clubs for next season I’m sure was no coincidence. They basically put every type of new technology they could into these irons. Blending distance, forgiveness, easy launch, with a soft feel and sound for a solid hitting club. I like that they still have that classic look, great lines but you can definitely tell they have all the high-tech details."
