Might want to give the VRs a look then. It's a shallower profile and is pretty fairway lie friendly.What do you dudes reckon is most important to you in a 3W? To me it's the ability to hit a hot, relatively low shot off the deck that runs like it stole something. I start hitting a 3W high and it sometimes leaves the field of play. I don't hit a lot 3Ws off the tee. I like a shallow face and smallish head. This RBZ seems to have a larger head, but still shallow face. It intrigues me. I hit the R11 3W okay, but not better than my older TEE.
I hope not. That means that I'd have to find a new one for league... A quick google turns up nothing but advertising. They provide any source for that or just shop talk?I heard rumors in GG Sunday that the RBZ 3W might end up being illegal. Something about the USGA is looking at the 3W's COR and might deem it too much.
It was 2 GG sales guys and a customer talking while I was comparing the RBZ and Mashie so no source that I heard. But it was one of the sales guys that brought it up so Im not sure if he heard this somewhere or not. I cant imagine the headache TM would have on its hands if that happened.I hope not. That means that I'd have to find a new one for league... A quick google turns up nothing but advertising. They provide any source for that or just shop talk?
I did hear them say something about they would have to send everyone's 3W's back to make them legal. What a pain that would be. Here's your newly adjust 3W and now it doesnt go as far. Enjoy. lolThanks for the quick reply Kmac. I'll keep an ear out with the TM homers I play with from time to time. I'd really hate to find out that my new 3W was illegal!!
However, I really think you would crush the RBZ 3W. Last time I played with Freddie, I hit a drive just about as good as I can, then Freddie outdrove me with the RBZ 3W. I reckon it was by about 17 yards or so.I know dude, that's why I haven't pursued it. I'm pretty stoked about that Mashie.
I agree about the weighting of the club - it definitely felt heavier to me when I tried it yesterday. And I agree about the distance.So I got to GG over the weekend and finally got to hit the RBZ 3 hybrid. At first I was very suprised by the weighting of the club, it is much heavier than my current hybrid and doesn't just feel heavier in the head but heavier all over. As I started to hit balls I could really feel where that heavier weighting came into place. Needless to say all the RBZ hype is true. The 3 Hybrid is silly long, ( I know some launch monitors are juiced so i can't say for sure, but I was hitting bombs). I hit a few shots in the 215-220 range, which is as long as my 3 wood. I was very impressed with the distance gains I was getting from the RBZ, but I wasn't impressed with my swing as I was spraying the balls all over with it. I hit a few balls off the toe that seemed to "carry" longer than expected. The forgiveness was very impressive in the distance category, just not in the accuracy category. I plan to hit this club on the range to get a better more "realistic" idea of what this club can do.
As I was ready to leave, I noticed a RocketBallz 18.5* hybrid in the hitting bay. I grabbed it and took one swing. I felt like I really nutted it, and when it was all said and done... 238 carry, 246 total distance.
pulled the trigger on a 19* rescue today... was able to swing consistently fast enough with the lightweight shaft to buy it in regular flex. Hit it 180-ish consistently with the occasional perfect 200-yard shot. Crazy long, and crazy forgiving... over 15 yards longer than anything I compared it to!
