Taylor Made RocketBallz Tour 3 Hybrid 18.5* (Graphite, STIFF) 3r 3h NEW

Posted

Pros: LONG, smooth, forgiving

Cons: Graphics, shaft look, easily scratch

1. Looks

Ok, I'm VERY picky in everything I buy. This Hybrid has a nice looking face that'll give you plenty of confidence hitting it. But the headcover and the looks of the shaft I think are cheezy and ugly with the black and green. The headcover looks like a cheap one too.

 

2. Performance & feel

Now this is where this hybrid is going to shine. It sounds tingy off the face, but it feels SUPER smooth.

Even smoother than my Raylor. I wouldn't want to hit this off the deep rough though because it'll scuff the crown and causes a lot of scratches in the face too... I'll reserve my Raylor for that.

 

I normally hit my 4 Hybrid Raylor around 210-220 yds. But when I hit this at the simulator with the tape on the face on, I consistently hit a carry of 236-243 yds. That's a major increase... that's practically a 3 Wood almost. I'm currently playing with the stock shaft at 85 grams, and surprisingly it's decently consistent.

 

I bought this and took it at the same day to my golf day to play and the simulator didn't lie... my ball flight

is higher than my Raylor , powerful boring trajectory and I was hitting it about 230-240yds.

I was playing with a person, he hit his burner 3 wood with a nice draw, while I did a power fade shot with this club from behind him... my ball landed longer by 20yds than his.

 

I was skeptical at first about the ugly looks of the color scheme and how manufacturers kept saying :"This year's club is longer by x yds". But I have to admit... this hybrid is easy to hit and it's consistent and quite long.

 

The tour version has a deeper face and slightly open face which I like.

 

 

3. Cons:

 

Looks... I really don't like the looks and color scheme of the shaft it's on... but that's why I have ordered a Kurokage 80gr to be put into it which I'll review in a week.

Another thing is that the black face will get scratched up the very first swing you hit on the fairway... guaranteed, and I wouldn't want to hit this off the rough as to not to scuff the white crown.

 

 

Conclusion:

 

I never thought that I'd get rid of my 3H Raylor and replace it by this 4H RBZ, but I am now. This Hybrid is the real deal in my opinion and it's better than the rescue 2011 which I got rid off after 1 month.

 

It feels great, it's consistent, easy on the back swing's turf interaction and more. I think Taylormade has nailed it on this one... except for the name...
