f you are one of the many out there that loved the RBZ™, then you're going to love this next stick even more. We're talking about the RBZ™ Stage 2 stick from CCM, also powered by TaylorMade®.

CCM Hockey and TaylorMade® Golf have partnered, once again, on enhancing the technologies that made the original RBZ™ stick so great. The RBZ™ Stage 2 stick features what CCM likes to refer to as Power Swing Technology. This has a direct correlation to what golfers refer to as swing speed and basically means optimal weight distribution in order to give you a balanced stick with a smooth and fast swing motion. Just like the original RBZ™, the Stage 2 has a constant flex profile in the shaft which gives you a Custom Kick Point that is determined by the placement of your lower hand. Typically, the kick point of a stick is predetermined by its construction for a specific type of release. The RBZ™ Stage 2, however, adapts to your playing style.

For the construction of the shaft, CCM uses an aerial grade carbon which is a contributing factor in the relatively light weight of this stick. The senior shaft uses a Traditional geometry with square-corners, while the intermediate, junior and youth uses a Contoured geometry with rounded corners for better fit and feel for smaller hands. The RBZ™ Stage 2 comes with the grip finish plus is also available in non-grip for the senior models only.

There's really no visible taper to the RBZ™ Stage 2 because of the constant flex profile, just a nice transition of where the blade and shaft meet.

The blade is where the most significant advancements occur on this stick. If you thought the puck came off your RBZ™ with high velocity, you'll probably freak out at how much faster it will be with the RBZ™ Stage 2. What makes it Freakishly Fast? Speedblade 2 has Freak Channels. Instead of using foam in the core, finely tuned channels circulate through the blade in such a way that the coefficient of restitution or C.O.R. is increased by 20% in comparison to the already fast speed channels design of the RBZ™. Basically, this is a trampoline effect of the amount of energy return at the point of impact which results in a shot with increased velocity. These are some of the same principles that power the TaylorMade® Rocketballz™, which is why you'll find the "Powered by TaylorMade®" graphic proudly displayed on the stick.

Don't settle for fast when you can be Freakishly Fast with the RBZ™ Stage 2 stick from CCM.

The above.

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
