RBZ stage 2 driver

TaylorMade has launched the RBZ Stage 2 driver and RBZ Stage 2 fairway woods and rescue clubs, following on from the hugely successful line of first generation RocketBallz products.

Below, Golf Monthly Digital Editor Neil Tappin takes a first look at the RBZ Stage 2 driver and the RBZ Stage 2 fairway wood. Both were made available back in February.

 RBZ Stage 2 driver first-look review:

The RBZ Stage 2 driver combines a lower and more forward centre of gravity, a more aerodynamic head shape and a 4,100 square millimetre club face for increased yardage and performance.
