PROS

The ball flew off the face and this club offers great value for money.

CONS

The one thing that perhaps did let the RBZ down was dispersion – our testers did spray it about a bit. 

What we say...

4 out of 5

TaylorMade have invested heavily in their RocketBallz franchise for 2012, and while there has been huge interest surrounding the brilliant fairway wood, the driver is impressive too. It’s already notched a win on Tour with Luke Donald at the Transitions in mid-March.

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 R11S.

As you might expect it scored top marks for distance sitting at the top of Chris’ yardage stats and also featuring in the top five for four other testers. The one thing that perhaps did let it down was dispersion – the boys did spray it about a bit. As always, we would suggest a proper custom-fitting and it’s also worth pointing out the adjustability – golfers can alter the loft and at this price, this is exceptional.

RBZ driver

By Bakul

On reading several comments In Golf magazine I ordered this Driver in March 2012.The Club looks great but the grip does not feel right compared to my previous driver from Call away.As an average golfer 18 handicap it gave me about 10 yards more on average.I would not recommend and it is frankly an expensive purchase. Hugely disappointed!

RBZ DRIVER

By daveyboy.fletcher

 After a fitting brought the RBZ Driver. the launch monitor put it 18 yards longer carry than my previous R7 CGB driver. With that difference it was not a diificult choice to purchase it. Great looks the club head appears huge behind the ball and simple adjustability why would you buy the R11 ? The club feels light and easy to swing encouraging you to really go after the ball.

RBZ Driver

By chrissilverton

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. However If you’re struggling to hit the ball and want a confidence inducing club... read more
