Golf Digest’s team of equipment editors as well as panel of retailers, amateur players, scientist and teacher judging best new golf clubs introduced to the market. Golf Digest’s “Hot List” is recognized as a leading independent guide both by the golf industry and golf enthusiasts.
This year Editor’s Choice selection was revolutionary, completely adjustable TaylorMade’s new R11 driver featuring a white crown. For you who are not familiar with Editor’s Choice selection – it is honor given to only four products, in addition to a Gold rating.

It makes TaylorMade only brand to have two drivers with Gold ratings on the 2011 Hot List. Burner SuperFast 2.0 weights only 279 grams and it is the lightest TaylorMade driver ever, it is also five yards longer comparing with first generation SuperFast driver.
In addition to this there are nine other TaylorMade products that earned gold rating. These products are: R11 and R11 TP fairway woods, Tour Preferred MC and Burner 2.0 irons, Corza Ghost and Daytona Ghost putters, TP with xFT wedge and Rescue 11 and Rescue 11 TP hybrids.
TaylorMade’s vice president of brand and product marketing Bob Maggiore said: “It is always rewarding when real golfers and industry experts react positively to our products”.
Weight distribution is different in every burner 2.0 clubhead, it is made to improve long, middle and short iron ball flight. In long irons weight is shifted towards the head. That way it should promote easy launch and more stability.
In the mid irons weight is distributed more venly. In the short irons weight positioning is intended to promote more controllable ball flight.
Every individual Burner 2.0 has a different face thickness. Long irons have thinnest and fastest faces. The thinner face is more ball speed and distance and thicker face is guarantee of greater feel.
The multi functional sole has been improved ( compared with original Burner iron) by recessing the heel and toe and reducing drag. All that made solid and clean contact easier and more possible.
Burner 2.0 made long irons significantly easier to hit and more playable.
It has improved vibration management system and new flight control shaft design.
Burner 2.0 irons are offered in four shaft flexes – S, R, M, L. The standard Burner 2.0 set includes eight irons for a price of $ 699 with steel shafts in the irons and $ 899 with graphite shaft in the irons. They are available since this October.
