    I have more details in preview thread, but I hit the Stage 2 about 15-20 yards further on average. Both are very light and long.

    Indeed, it should be going up soon.

    I hit them side by side again during my review time b/c it had been so long since I'd hit the RBZ. The sound has certainly improved since then with the Stage 2 but there is still room to improve. The head itself I think is going to be a lot like the RBZ was in that when paired with the correct shaft it will likely make some people very happy. The length appears to be there as does the across the face forgiveness.

    I say go to the store and hit them side by side and see what ya think.

    I love my RBZ. It's long and forgiving on miss hits. You can't go wrong with either. Make sure you get the right shaft in it though that makes a huge difference.

    Tim is super wise, the only way for anyone to see the difference is to get out and try them!

    Also, is there a reason to are tied to the RBZ's? If you are going to be paying 299 for a new driver (price of stage 2), you should hit some other drivers in that price range including the Amp Cell and Callaway x-hot

    This too, I went to the store, knowing that I wanted to buy the RBZ driver, hit it a few times and realized I lost about 20 Yards, I stayed with my r11, never buying anything again without a proper fitting

    I couldn't wait. Went today and hit the Stage 2, the original, the X Hot, the Amp Cell and the new Covert. Walked out with the original RBZ driver. I was more consistent getting the clubhead around, hit it farther, and swung it faster. Very happy with my purchase!
