TaylorMade RBZ Tour Driver

OK, so you have the latest and greatest from TaylorMade and all of a sudden their new "IT" driver comes out.  There is no way you are going to fork over another $300 on another new driver, right? Of course not, you are going to trade in your almost new driver for pennies for that brand new one that some say is the longest, hottest driver around.  I have been extremely fortunate to have been playing with the new RBZ Tour for the last 4 months. And all I have to say is WOW!

 

TaylorMade RBZ Tour Review

OK, so you have the latest and greatest from TaylorMade and all of a sudden their new "IT" driver comes out.  There is no way you are going to fork over another $300 on another new driver, right? Of course not, you are going to trade in your almost new driver for pennies for that brand new one that some say is the longest, hottest driver around.  I have been extremely fortunate to have been playing with the new RBZ Tour for the last 4 months. And all I have to say is WOW! Now, I have this bad boy tuned to perfection (My swing speed averages 110mph).  My current setup is as follows: RBZ Tour 10.5 set to standard loft/lie. Paired with the Graphite Design G 70 Stiff Shaft and standard Winn Dri-Tac Grip.

Looks: I will be honest black, white it doesn't really matter much to me. It can be purple and I would still love the damn thing. I do like how the club contrasts to the green grass though. I also notice much less glare on the top of the clubhead and this is due to the matte finish on the RBZ Tour.  The only problem with the white club head is that it gets dirty fast. I know it isn't a beauty pageant, but come on we all want to keep our clubs as clean as possible.

Technology: I used to think the whole FCT (Flight Control Technology) was just another gimmick. It's not! No swing is the same and if you are going to buy off the rack, having the ability to adjust lie/loft in a matter of seconds is great. The shape of the head was engineered to promote faster head speed, but I think the OEM's making the clubs lighter is helping with that too.  Their inverted Cone clubface technology was designed for those who don't always hit the ball straight. This enables you to get maximum distance on off-center hits.

Feel/Playability: There is nothing better than the feel and sound when you strike the ball on the sweet spot of your club. The RBZ Tour is extremely forgiving on miss hits and sounds and feels fantastic when you make solid contact. For a Tour model, this club is playable for everyone.

Performance: Numbers don't lie but during Club Wars the RBZ was my most consistent driver in all categories we were testing (Distance, Spin, Club Speed and Control). I was averaging over 275 yds and was able to send a couple over the 300 yd. mark. This club tuned properly is a beast and my Fairways hit the last 5 rounds have increased over 50% and because of that my scores have been more consistent. My confidence is high with this driver in hand.

Conclusion: Buy it. I am an 11 handicap and been playing like a 9 with this club The best bang for the buck when it comes to Performance, Forgiveness and Distance.  Make sure to put it to the proper settings to match your game.
