Any of you have one? if so do you like it? would you recommend it or recommend a different Driver. Im thinking of dropping from a 10.5 loft to a 9.5 and from what Ive read this driver has a pretty bi sweet spot and it supposed to be really forgiving. some days Im right down the piper, but sometimes I tend to have a fade. Im hoping a more forgiving driver would help.
I have one. Big fan. Would recommend
3 time POTW
Noooo. They suck. Buy the R11 or whatever that new one is. Everyone I know that bought a rocketballz driver either leave it at home or use it as a 3-wood
To each their own. Hasn't hurt my game.
My brother has a RBZ hybrid that is nasty. Never hit the driver though.
Ya people I know are happy with the hybrids and woods. Just not the driver.
I have the R11s driver, R11 3-wood, and the 2011 Taylormade Rescue Hybrid 3 (19*) and 4 (24*). Love all of them. (Note: I replace the 4 hybrid with a traditional 4 iron midway through the golf season once I get my swing back)
Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with any drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids. All top notch quality IMO.
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
honestly it depends on what you play now...if you play a relatively new driver now then you will not see a huge difference in performance with the new RBZ. But if you are playing with older technology then you will feel a difference in forgiveness.
I would go to golf galaxy or somewhere like that and demo all the new drivers and see which one you like best.
Not sure if you are loyal to a specific brand.... but I hit a bunch of drivers last week and liked the Razr Fit Extreme, Ping G25, and Ping Anser
RBZ is slick, tried out the Nike Covert today it's niiiice
I hit the Cobra AMP CELL and AMP CELL Pro the other day. Would recommend those, too.
I hit the R11 and R11 and I did not like them whatsoever.
But I did hit the new Calloway which I though was amazing
RAZR Fit Xtreme has combined Extreme Distance and Extreme Adjustability to create the longest driver in golf.
Recently purchased RBZ tour 5 wood, 3 wood, and driver with Rip Phenom shafts. Love them all. You can change the loft of the driver 1.5 degrees so I wouldn't sweat the loft too much. If you are buying, I suggest checking out EBay. You can find some pretty good deals.
Glad to see this thread... Don't want to hijack the thread, but at what point should you consider blades vs. cavity backs? Is there really that much difference in control? How about distance? I assume that I shouldn't because I'm not that good, but if I worked on my game a long time, would you recommend it for a 10 HC, or is it more of a scratch guy kind of club?
been forever since I've played, I think I still have an R5
I love it. Had the new titleist and traded it in for the Stage 2 rocketballz. Much easier to control.
Blades are harder to hit and require better ball striking skills. The cavity backed irons have a larger sweet spot which means they are better for the average golfer who is not able to consistently hit the ball in the right part of the club face. BUT if you are a good and consistent ball striker then blades are definitely the way to go. They are much better for shot making(shaping shots), and by that I mean moving the ball with control, left or right in the air and also hitting higher or lower trajectories. I personally have always played blades most of my golfing life. Mind you some blades are definitely more forgiving than others. so before you buy try as many different brands as possible until you find the ones that are best for you. Also might want to look into a set of muscle backs instead of making that jump from cavity back to blades.
Would look for a Demo Day in your area at a GC with a Driving Range. Hitting as many as they have to offer with swing monitor. Seeing the ball flight and getting real data is the best way to find the best club for you. Good luck and Hitem str8.
