Hot on the heels of the Taylormade R1 driver australia is the new TaylorMade RocketBallz Stage 2 driver australia, which features an element of adjustability, enhanced aerodynamics and great performance.
It may not grab the headlines that the more expensive R1 does, but this is still a seriously-solid golf club that we fully-expect to perform well for many golfers of different abilities. The RBZ Stage 2 features a larger face than the RBZ predecessor, as well as incorporating the Loft-Sleeve Technology that allows golfers to adjust the loft, lie angle and face angle of the clubhead.
The centre of gravity has been kept low, but has been moved closer towards the face for lower spin and enhanced distance – in fact, TaylorMade claim the driver can generate up to nine yards more off the tee in the hands of better players compared to the original Taylormade RBZ driver australia.
“It’s hard to imagine bringing a driver to market that out-performs the original RocketBallz driver,” said Todd Beach, Vice President of Metalwoods R&D. It may not grab the headlines that the more expensive R1 does, but this is still a seriously-solid golf club that we fully-expect to perform well for many golfers of different abilities.
“Making the head of the RBZ Stage 2 driver more aerodynamic while also making the clubface larger was a tremendous challenge and succeeding was critical to promoting performance that’s superior to the first generation RBZ driver.”
Tester Chris loved the colour design – the white head and the green worked well for him– and he also noted how well the ball came off the face. Jon suggested it was one of the most forgiving on test, while Ian felt the overall look suggested it was towards the more expensive end of the market. Ian also said he preferred it when it came to forgiveness to the RBZ’s more prestigious brother, the Taylormade R11S driver australia.
