Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 Loft Advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm looking into getting the RBZ Stage 2 Adjustable Driver but after reading a lot about the lower center of gravity as in the SLDR I was interested about the higher loft. The Stage 2 comes in either 9.5 or 10.5. I'm coming from an R7 w/10.5 loft. I was planning on going down to 9.5 but from what I've read the higher loft seems to benefit the lower center of gravity. With the adjustability I can go 1.5 either direction so the 10.5 would allow me up to 12 while the 9.5 would be 11. I plan on trying out both in store but they only have the bonded version so I wouldn't have the chance to use the full adjustable range. Does anyone have experience with finding the best loft to use this club and which would be more beneficial?

Each player is different and you just have to go through a little trial and error. If you can, try to get on a launch monitor to see what loft gives you the best carry and spin numbers.

Also I belive the rbz is not low and forward cg as it is pre SLDR

I will try with the bonded but they have no adjustable to try in store.

The RBZ Stage 2 was the first driver to have the lower and more forward CG. After developing the SLDR in the same way they came out w/the higher loft campaign as they saw it paid off. All of the drivers to follow including the jet speed mention the same lower & forward CG as the RBZ does and now say loft up. So this is my predicament as I won't have the chance to try the adjustment so it's tough to say which would be best unless someone has used it and has experience w/lofting up.

i have the rbz stage 2 adjustable driver in 10.5 i have a very flat drive with no spin so previously with ping g 15 in 10.5 i carry 180-190 carry 60 yards of roll to where my drive totaled 240-250 after i switched drivers to rbz stage 2 it added 20 yards to my total distance at the same loft (10.5). lofted up with the lower and forward cg and have it set at 11.5 and now hit the ball with 225 carry and i consistently hit the ball around 270-280 the driver by its self will add distance with the same loft but lofting up has its benefits. i would forsure get the adjustable one and get it in 10.5 so you can have your loft set anywhere from 9* to 12*. it will give you the best loft options with the cg being low and forward.
