Need a new wood, advice please!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, just joined the forum looking for some advice. Just came back to golf after like 6 years of not playing. I've bought a new set of Wilson Staff CI-11 Irons ranging from pitching wedge to 4 iron, and a Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 driver. I'm looking for a wood to match my driver, so ideally one out of the RBZ range, they offer a 3 wood, fairway wood & hybrid I think but I've no idea which one to buy. Any help would be appreciated,

Cheers.

If you like the RBZ Stage 2 driver, look at the Stage 2 fairway woods.

 

Stage 2 includes 3W (15*) and 5W (19*) and the 3W.HL (high launch, 17*, called a 4W in the rest of golfdom), a 5W.HL (21*), and a 23* 7W. Stock shaft is the 60-gram Matrix RocketFuel.

 

Stage 2 FWs flew well, but I went with a competitor's offerings which gave me better yardage.

 

Try both the 3W and 3W.HL. As per Golf Digest reports, the average golfer can hit a 4W more reliably, and often farther than a 3W.

 

I have no experience with the Stage 2 hybrids.

 

Lots of original RBZ fairway woods are on clearance, but avoid them. The basic RBZ FWs only had 45-gram shafts, with a draw clubface, which caused hooking problems for many golfers.

Thanks for the help, gonna go to the local pro shop and try those out soon, just wanted to see what different woods there is, they don't always have every type of wood in stock. Hopefully I'll have a full set of clubs soon!

Dundy,

 

If you like to talk about clubs, consider putting a "What's In My Bag" segment in your signature-line. That way we can tell what clubs you already have, and get an idea of how you approach golf from a hardware standpoint.

 

And, welcome to TST!

Speaking of the Stage 2 fairway woods.

 

I have a new Stage 2, 3 wood/15 with a stiff flex shaft in it. For the life of me, I cannot get it air born off the deck and just as poorly off the tee. Low hooks pretty consistently. It runs for a week, but is virtually useless going after greens. I have heard that the stock shafts are playing stiffer than the designated flex. Any truth to this? I used to murder my Sonartec SS and Adams before it, in stiff flex.

 

I want a higher ball flight as I am certain my ball flight with it, is less than optimal.
