Okay but not great! I will stick to my origional RBZ!
8 January 2014
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.
Excerpt: i was really looking forward to hitting this driver, but was disappointed from the first shot ,club lacked feedback and feel to myself ,3 drives later excitement was gone and so was the driver
Maybe not the club if you need help with a fade/slice

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.
Not recommended for high handicappers and 9.5 degree too low

Summary: I am disabled and need a club that is adjustable. This 9.5 is adjustable, however, its not loft but flight characteristics. So after one round, i sold this club back out on e bay and went back to my 10.5 degree taylor fast light driver. I also didnt like the white club...it both glares as you address the ball and marks easily if you hit a skyball. The feel as you hit the ball it too soft with little feedback.
Summary: Driver had more wear than expected, however over all it was a decent purchase. I still maintain that adjusting the shaft will not change loft or face angle, that is either an open or closed club face. TaylorMade marketing people created a selling point that is not true.
Excerpt: For me the RBZ Driver works well enough in terms of distance and forgiveness however it the lacks the refinement of other drivers in its price bracket, the look of a club is a very personal thing but in my opinion it looks a bit cheap and it doesn’t feel great of the face, just feels dull to me.
