TaylorMade Pros & new RBZ line


Recommended Posts

Who uses what?
TaylorMade players using the RocketBallz RBZ driver/fairway combination:

Dustin Johnson
R11S / RBZ

Justin Rose
R11 / RBZ

Sergio Garcia
R11S / RBZ

Martin Kaymer
RBZ Tour / RBZ

Jason Day
?

Sean O'Hair
?

Martin Laird
?

Can anyone confirm/deny/update/edit?
I can see the appeal of the fairway wood but is the RBZ driver that bad...that hardly anyone uses any version on tour??

Keep in mind most of them are using the dot or tour versions
[/quote]Oh yeah, I know...but I remember when the previous models came out, almost everyone jumped on the R9 and R11 wagons immediately.

In this case, it just seems to be the fairway wood that's getting the attention and usage...

DAY had rbz tour driver three wood builds in the van for the WGC.

LAIRD had made the switch to the rbz tour driver as well - not sure on the three wood.

GARCIA had a rbz tour driver waiting for him with a RIP BETA 90x - not sure if he made the switch.



THE RBZ LINE FINALLY MADE ITS WAY INTO THE TOUR VAN OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF EVENTS - SO THE PLAYER USAGE WOULD BE LOW. IT APPEARS THAT WILL BE CHANGING NOW THAT IT IS "AVAILABLE".

Justin Rose
R11 Dot with PX
RBZ 15 with PX

Sergio Garcia
R11S with Beta 90X
RBZ TOUR 14.5 with Beta 90X

Martin Kaymer
RBZ Tour 8 Fubuki Alpha
RBZ Tour 14.5 Fubuki K
(He is experimenting with the VTS's)

Jason Day
Superfast 9.5 LCG with TP7hD
Superfast 4 Wood with TP7HH

Sean O'Hair
Not sure here

Martin Laird
RBZ tour 10.5 with Kaili 70
R11 17 with Kaili 83

Goosen
RBZ Tour 9.0 with PX 8A4
RBZ Tour 14.5 with PX 8A4
RBZ Tour 17.5 with PX 8A4


Like Ryan said the RBZ drivers are slowly getting more plays on tour as they havent been out long, this week Martin Laird was the only new player to bag one. The fairways are at an all time high, there were 32 in play at Riviera. If you are curious of anyone else ask and I will see if I can find out.

Tour pros probably are "encouraged" to play the R11s more since it is suppose to be targeted towards lower handicapped players.

RBZ Tour driver is legit. Bought mine and am hitting it 10+ yards further than my R11 tp.

And what about Luke Donald? Using 'old faithful' R11 from last year or a new driver? He's not long, but he's straight.

Luke is hitting an RBZ driver. Not sure if it's tour head or not

I heard he was not using the Tour version. Anyone confirm this?

I think it is surprising that we all tend to go to the lowest spin option, and I think that pros gravite to higher launch shafts than what we many times think we need.

I know that Sergio last year had a Burner 2.0 Non Tour 3 wood and they say in the ads that he has his R11S set @ C+ with a weird weight combination. Like has been mentioned their swings aren't perfect just repeatable. SOME are not as open as we think and these guys like to hit it high. I know that it was talked about on here last summer that Luke was looking at different driver shafts than his Accra's to get the ball higher. Very interesting stuff.

I agree with this. I use R11 driver and just bought Tour 3wood 14.5º RBZ. I cant express or post enough how great this club is and how skeptical I was at first. The heavier shaft was needed. Check you WITB in my sign. Let me know your thoughts!! BTW hit the 3wood twice on course today 305yrds and 301....off the tee!!:clapping:
