I hit at least a small bucket with almost every 2012 driver.   The least impressive to me was the RBZ.   I wound up going with the Nike VRS because it had the best combination of feel, sound, distance, & dispersion.
I'm going to approach this from a bit of a different angle.    There are a lot of things that need to happen prior to the swing before you can start hitting more greens in regulation.  Here's just a smattering of some of the stuff I consider before I even choose my club.   All this happens when I stand behind the ball.   Once I make my club selection and step up to the ball it's all about making the swing.   No more thoughts   1.  What's my lie?  Fairway, light...
I can't speak to the prices but I can tell you this, after about 15 minutes of speaking with a "clubfitter" at my local GG I'd NEVER trust them to do a fitting for me.   Your mileage my vary........
They look great but the question will be how they feel.  The 1st generation of forged Ansers was a miserable flop due largely to the fact that they felt terrible as compared to other premium irons.
Tidewater and Heather Glenn are two of my all time favorites at MB.   I've heard Caledonia is very nice but I've never played it.
One of the things my pro has me do for a drill is to hit 5 irons as low as I possibly can.   Much like a punch shot.  You can use the back of the range or the tree line as a gage of how low you're hitting it.  The range where I practice has a huge net on the right side.   I try to hit my 5i below the top of the net.   You hit some ugly shots but my ball striking and compression improves greatly after one of those sessions.   When you're hitting 5 iron stingers there...
I was just watching the replay of the AT&T and thought, damn, "that guy in the blue shirt reminds me of iacas".   I Googled "PureStrike" and wound up here again!   That's a pretty good price for a 5 dvd set.
While not entirely unrelated, I noticed something during the Open last week.   Tiger seems to be hitting everything with an open stance.   I was wondering if that was Foley thing or something he's doing to preserve his knee?   I think in golf we often become obsessed with how things are supposed to look as opposed to focusing on the actual result.   If it helps me hit the ball straighter I'll stand with one leg in the air like a flamingo! :)   Arnold Palmer, Lee...
  I've got one of the original Rapture's.   I swapped out the stock shaft for an NVS and I can't seem to part with it.   I've hit virtually every driver made yet I can't find anything that feels or performs as well.
I think there's a lot of golfers that leave their driver home and have more success off the tee with their 3w because they're playing the wrong driver.   I'm not talking about any particular brand but rather a driver that doesn't fit them well.   I think a lot of golfers are obsessed with hitting it longer and foresake accuracy for distance.    If you look at the lengths of the modern driver is there any wonder why balls that used to go slightly off line now wind up in...
