i've always been a fan of rocketballz (love taylormade and like the color scheme, important stuff you know) and i was having a particularly bad day at the range when i saw they had a 9.5* rbz for demo.
i had been hitting my cleveland xl270 all over the place since i adjusted my swing and when i started the hitting the rocketballz i was getting straight and long results. a lot of that comes from hitting a stiff as opposed to my ultra flexible R flex, but it was a blast.
i went later that night to golfsmith to try one out and the guy set me up with a 10.5 tour S flex (i wasn't even paying attention i figured it was a 10.5 standard model). anyway i was fading (spent 4 hours at the range previous to this trip) so i wasn't the most consistent but the distances were just killer and my swing speed picked up 8 mph from my old club. to be certain this wasn't just a result from finally getting a stiff driver i tried the new cobra amp. it was set neutral and i just absolutely drew/hooked the crap out of it. i set the face to open and repeated with a less severe, but still way left shot. i tried the 10.5 standard RBZ and i could tell it was definitely leaning left as well.
i checked some of the contact marks on the tour model and saw that i was pretty uniform in the center of the face, just a half a ball high or low, but the slightly smaller head didn't affect my hits as much as an apparent slight draw bias that they put on some main stream drivers. (that's what the sales guy told me, i mean obviously i was at fault for some of the left because i was hanging back, but there was a pronounced difference between tour and non to me).
they're the same price so i went with the tour 10.5. i took it to the range, bombed the crap out of it, but had some lefts so i turned the head down all the way to 9* and was pretty happy, but i definitely saw a couple start leaking right. went home and turned it to the middle setting between lower and standard and played with it today.
it was absolute money. i hit almost every fairway (up from the 2-5 i might get lucky to hit in a normal round) and i knocked two around the 270 mark with a good majority probably falling into the 250 range. (for reference the cleveland was 210-230).
i don't know if the tour is really more neutral like the guy selling it said or if it was just in my head, but for me it was worth it. the driver itself gives me worlds of confidence off the teebox that i was lacking before and it seems the more i try to crank into it the further and straighter it flies.
sorry to be so long about my story, but i never thought i could drive the ball like i did today consistently. it was a lot of fun and the rocketballz 10.5 tour was definitely the ticket.
