Taylormade Japan has made their first official product launch announcement for 2011 and we hope this is the start of many to come. We all know already that that the R11 driver is coming and it will of course be officially released in Japan in early March right after the Japan Golf Fair. Along with the R11 Driver and it’s top shaft offerings like the Diamana ahina, Tour AD DJ, ATTAS T2 and Motore Speeder we’ll also see the R11 Fairway wood and a new Rescue which features an all black sole and white crown.
Like the US Japan will first launch the new Tour Preferred line of irons the MB Forged, MC Forged and CB. We’re expecting the announcements for new Japan model Burner Forged, Burner TP and R11 Forged as well in the next few weeks leading up to the Japan Golf Fair.
TM Japan will also be releasing several new putters starting with the announcement of the new Raylor Ghost. The Raylor Ghost is a cross between the white Ghost Putters and the Japan only Red Stripe Putters except this time the stripe is black and white. It also features an all new soft surlyn insert called the PU insert or Pure Roll.
Finally Taylormde Japan announced the release of the Burner Superfast 2.0J lineup which is for Japan only as noted by the “J”. The Superfast 2.0J series features a new driver which has two models, a RED model for the average golfer and a and SILVER model for the athlete and better player. There will also be RED and SILVER models of the new 2.0J fairway woods and a new 2.0J Rescue. There will also be a ladies line of 2.0J models for the smaller Asian lady and any lady really looking for ease of use and distance.
We look forward to more announcements from TM Japan and getting our demos for review!
