Rocketballz or Stage II Driver?

3 posts in this topic

So - the story is that I stink at driver.  Can't control it and can't seem to hit it solid.  I quit using one (and anything but irons for that matter) and my scores improved.  Awesome.  Then I slowly introduced a 17* hybrid.  Once I was pretty good with it, I introduced a 15* RBZ 3-wood.  Now I've got the hang of these two clubs pretty good and am thinking of re-introducing driver.

I played golf with a guy a while back who turns out to work at the PGA superstore.  He was inquiring as to why I didn't carry a driver.  Told him why. He asked which one I had and I told him I had a TM Superfast.  Immediately he said it was terrible.  A lot of people had come in disliking that club, getting them cut down and such.  So I asked him what I should get and he immediately said the Rocketballz.  I love the 3-wood, so I'm thinking of getting one.  Or maybe even the Stage II.

Anyone own this club and want to say what they think of it?  My main concern would be accuracy - distance second.

I have the stage 2 driver and 3W, and rocketballz 3H. I love the 3W and 3H for both control and distance (in fact I'm going out tonight to buy the 4H). Unfortunately, I haven't found that same level of consistency in the driver yet though. In my case, it's probably more a reflection of my swing vs. the driver itself but I am a bit surprised with how much of a difference their is in the quality of my shots between the two.

I'd suggest not to limit your selection until you have tried whatever you can get hold of. I have the TM Burner Superfast driver as well and I think it is me more than the driver. Then I got hold of a Cobra AMP Cell driver and tried the different lofts and I was very consistent, never missed the fairway, at 8.5* loft (used it twice so far). Check out the other adjustable loft drivers, try every loft and go from there.

    • You can have them tested for lie to see if they are too upright or flat. They won't adjust cast clubs typically because they will likely break, but you can still have them tested. I used to have this done at Dick's SG, but I don't know if they still do it since they got rid of all their pros.
    • If they work well for you then you probably don't need to pick up some new clubs unless you really want to. I would say analyze your game and see where your weaknesses are then see if new clubs would help that issue. For instance having large gaps between clubs or having a consistent miss like always going right/left or thin/heavy.
    • So last night, I dreamed that I was going to play golf. It was back in Ohio (I think), but it occurred to me that I have played this course in my dreams before. It is a course I have never played IRL...
    • I was in your spot a few years ago and started with a RAM setup as I didn't know if I would like golf.  Cost me $200 for the whole 9 yards.  Ended up loving golf and now I have tons of clubs. $300 is not a ton of money for a whole setup if you want to stay away from something similar to what you currently have.  Other posters have put up good ideas for you to follow.  Being a Lefty is what will limit you the most.  If you are not sure if your lengths, lies and grip sizes are correct Ping has a great system to help you find what does fit you and you can always use the info for other clubs.  From a Ping fitting I know that I want 1" longer clubs and 1 degree upright.  Now when I browse on the Bay I look for stick that fit those two details.  Makes used shopping a lot easier. There are plenty of good deals out there.  Be patient and keep looking.  Online, used stores and word of mouth.  Good luck to you and I hope you get a nice setup that works for you.  
    • I saw the same thing when I did my little bit of internet research yesterday, it looks like the PGA apprentice training is aimed at those who will end up working at a golf club.  I know from my club that the job of the PGA staff includes managing day-to-day golf operations, running the retail pro-shop business, running club tournaments, marketing and running outside golf events, as well as a bit of instruction.  @iacas, do you know what percentage of PGA (or other) golf professionals are in this type of situation, as opposed to those who concentrate almost entirely on instruction as you do? Another update from Florida, Paul's 70 put him in a 5-way tie for second, two behind the leader.  Unless he breaks a leg, he seems likely to make the cut at the end of today and move on to the weekend.  I wish the PGA had real-time scoring, so I could watch through the day!
