Summary: I should have read more reviews before I bought the club. This is for a bonded driver meaning it is not adjustable, I didn't know that's what bonded meant. The one in the photo is the adjustable type so I figured that was what I was buying. I see a lot of other reviews are saying the same thing. Good quality product overall, took it to the range and it preformed fine.
Summary: Didn't like it as I couldn't feel the club head through the ball. It was too light. The graphics on the head also do not help promote a square setup either, in my opinion. The loft adjustment seems more like a gimmick to me, and not practical on the course.
Okay but not great! I will stick to my origional RBZ!

Summary: I don't know it could just be me and my quirky swing??? I bought this to take the place of my RBZ and regretfully it did not do that. Not all together sure why! It was really a totally different club in every way than my original. My original has a Motore F8 stiff, the RBZ Stage 2 has the stock shaft in S, both at 45.5" but they certainly perform very differently. The Stage 2: Clunky, Hard to hit straight, Low trajectory, Not as much feel throughout the swing.
Summary: I switched from a Cobra F-speed with a regular shaft to the TaylorMade RBZ Stage II regular shaft. Cobra was 9 degree, TM is set at 9.5. Since going to the TaylorMade my drive distance has increased by about 20 yards and my Handicap has gone up from an 11 to a 13. Yes UP! While the TaylorMade gives me more yardage it is much more unforgiving. I.e. I am spraying balls everywhere. The reason I switched was because I lost yardage over the last couple of years.
Summary: I switched to this driver because I read reviews that raved about how much distance they got out of this club. After a few rounds I don't really see much of a difference compared to my older Taylormade R7 driver. The shaft is longer than what I have on my R7 so I would expect some greater distance just from that change. Nonetheless, my drives still average about 250… I guess I'm destined to hit long irons for my second shots.
Maybe not the club if you need help with a fade/slice
9 June 2013
Summary: I have an 11 handicap and I typically have a fade sometimes a slice. I bought this driver because I hit my 10.5 degree R7 very high. When I adjusted the driver to 9 degrees it's like it opened up the club face and I hit everything to the right and exaggerated my fade/slice. When I adjusted it back to 10 degrees it cut down on my fade/slice but I hit it high again. I did hit this driver 10 to 15 yards farther than my R7.
