PROS

Moving the CG slightly towards the heel will please many amateurs. The combination of adjustability and added distance over the previous model justifies an upgrade.

CONS

The R1 offers more adjustability and forgiveness. The crown design won’t be to everyone’s taste.

What we say...

4.5 out of 5

2013 Drivers Test

While the driver may not contain the speed pocket featured in the RBZ Stage 2 fairway, that didn’t stop the ball feeling like it came off the face like a rocket. James hit his longest drive of the day with this club, Joel hit his second longest and Kit and Graeme’s distances were well above average on the day. Straight hitting was also synonymous with this club as Joel’s dispersion was down to just five yards, as was James’, while Graeme’s was just nine yards.

The unique crown design wasn’t to everyone’s taste, but the stand-out performance of this club ensured our testers soon dismissed any negatives about the looks. The RBZ Stage 2 was the preferred choice of our test team over the R1.

The new TaylorMade RocketBallz Stage II driver features an element of adjustability, enhanced aerodynamics and great performance for less than £250.
 
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 II 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 RBZ.

Lofts: 9.5°, 10.5° or 13°.
