TM does own Adams though.

That would make sense. The rbz hybrid I had was the same as my friends adams but the slot was on the top of the adams and the bottom of the rbz.

I believe Adam's came out with the "Velocity Slot" before TM acquired them. TM just renamed it the "Speed Slot."

Also, a lot of their technology is recycled and refined technology from other club makers. I think their speed slot is an adaptation from Adam's Tight Lies wood and/or Nike's Compression Channel. Their sliding weight is refined from the Mizuno MP630 driver.  I feel like they look at other club maker's adapted ideas and find ways to make it better. I don't think TM's R&D department revolutionizes - they glorify. 

 

Correct Adams had the slot patent but TaylorMade had the trademark or patent on the sliding weight technology prior to Mizuno, but Mizuno did use it first.

The "Apple" of the golf world strikes again.

The crown looks surprisingly like a Callaway driver I had.

Sure is cheaper being a Titleist fanboy. Can't imagine what it must be like always wanting TM's latest and greatest. I haven't seen any ads yet; I presume these are the longest hitting clubs they've ever built?

Well, they look better than the existing RBZ Stage 2 Lineup .... friendlier in the fairways and hybrids ... and jet steel - slotted and harder means longer (there's a joke there, somewhere). I found the RBZ Stage 2 to be heavy feeling and not that playable from various lies. It was a crap club for regular Joes. ... if I've got to use plain language. Okay for speed guys, though.

 

I've found fairways and hybrids to be the most difficult and reliable clubs to find ... once you find the ones you like, I'd latch onto them. You can demo these and wait for April when they're on sale - then latch onto them.

If they start running out of ideas, they can always hire Jack Hamm and sell us The Hammer..... POWWWWWWWWW!

Thanks for clarifying, Mike!

I agree that they do look a lot better. I've never been a fan of the white and when they included the graphics in the R1 and the RBZ Stage 2, it really just made it look worse. Of course, that's just my opinion. I feel they've gone a little more simplistic with the last two introductions with the Jetspeed and the SLDR.

That might be the worst analogy I've ever seen.

Worst ever LOL? Tough room, I thought it was pretty good.

Apple releases maintains very few product lines and updates them after several months or even a full year.

TaylorMade has several product lines and updates them seemingly every month or two.

 

As I said, lame analogy.

I'll say it is a bad analogy because TM club owners are not fanatics like apple product owners.

I kinda disagree on that. IMO the ipad, ipad mini and ipad air are basically all the same. It also seems like they release a phone every 6 months. Don't get me wrong I love Apple shit I have a Mac book pro and wouldn't ever get anything else. I think they are exactly like TM with the marketing of their products.

From what I've read on other boards I just might disagree with your fanatic comment. But anyway I apologize to Ipad/Iphone RBZ/SLDR owners everywhere for cryin out loud.

IPhone 5"S"..............R11"S"? I'll stop now for real LOL
