I once owned an RBZ Stage 2 -- would avoid it -- shaft is too long, sole is not rounded, and heel to toe is too long.
Have always read positive reviews about Cobra Hybrids.
Still, hybrids seem like a very personal choice -- like fairways. Once you find one you like, you stick with it. It took me about 7 years to find a brand I like.
I find the Bobby Jones Hybrids easy to hit and a high quality club -- it is a company who markets to the 40+ crowd. It is a well balanced club with a mini-fairway look and cup face technology -- solid yet lively and easy to launch, likes to go straight. Just because I've played all of Jesse Ortiz hybrids for 8 years doesn't mean everyone will like them. All of his designs are evolutionary so they are consistent from new introductions to another (unlike most OEMs). If interested, see www.bobbyjones.com. I've seen several reviews of his new Black lineup and they are all positive. I play his new lineup and it is a WOW for me.
Thanks. I noticed there are a ton of the RBZ stage 2's for sale on e-bay, maybe the reason you cited is why.
