HL stands for high launch. The standard RBZ 3W is 15°, the HL is 17°. (17° is normally called a 4W, which according to tests* is easier for the average golfer to hit than a 3W.)
I have an RBZ 3W.HL and a 7W, and a 4H. The three seem to have a draw bias, esp. the 4H. If I line up with a slightly open stance, the three hit the ball high and fairly straight. An OK hit with the 3W.HL goes about 10 yards farther than a really good hit with my old 3W.
(If an RBZ Tour 4H showed up with a R-flex shaft, I would like to try it. I gotten some deadly hooks out of the standard 4H).
I don't think much of the RBZ driver; tested it a couple of times, and was all over the place. Trim 1.5" off the shaft, and you might have something.
