Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 Hybrid Review
It is Long-ier, Straight-ier and Easy-ier
This is the official Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 Hybrid review.
I wanted to see how the Stage 2 hybrid would perform because I have been using the 3 wood for a while now.
This was my experience and my thoughts.
Once you have those answered, then you can start narrowing down your options. The Taylormade RBZ is like a mini fairway-wood rocket launcher. It is big and long. If you are considering dropping a 3 wood and like big headed hybrids or just need as much distance as possible with your hybrid, this is the one for you.
I’ve been hitting the Rocketballz Stage 2 3 wood so well early in the season, I really wanted to see how the hybrid would fit into the bag. I was surprised at how similar it looks at address. It just looks like they deflated the 3 wood a little. The Stage 2 is one of the most fairway-wood like hybrids you can find. The crown graphics are identical to the fairway woods. They really don’t bother me as much as I had anticipated. They point down the target line and after the first swing or two, I haven’t thought about them. It has a sole slot like the 3 wood and an adjustable hosel in the Tour TP model.
This clubs shines from the fairway, which really isn’t a big surprise considering it’s size. The large head sets up great and confidently behind the ball in the short grass. The Rocketballz Stage 2 hybrid is very forgiving too. It seems like I can hit it all over the face and still get it on-line and the right distance. Again, not a big surprise considering the size.
The downside of the fairway wood like hybrid is the feeling isn’t as pure as some others. It is in between that pop of a 3-wood and the solid feeling of a hybrid. It is somewhat dead feeling. It is not the greatest feeling hybrid other there, but the results are hard to argue with. The other downside is that it isn’t an ideal rescue club. I’ve struggled with this one from the mid to deep rough, basically anything past the 1st cut I’m probably not going to use this hybrid. If you would consider hitting a 3 wood, then you can hit this club, it is only slightly easier to hit out of non-fairway conditions than a 3 wood.
The Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 hybrid is a mini fairway wood rocket launcher. It hits the ball plenty long, does it with ease and is very forgiving. It isn’t a true rescue club in my opinion, but a long distance gap filler. This is the perfect club for your bag if you would like a mini fairway-wood that is forgiving and easy to hit long.
