Taylormade's Rocketballz Driver

It's 2012 and lot's of new drivers are making that same old claim..."This driver is going to easily add another 20 yards to your swing!".  Does the Taylormade RocketBallz driver live up to this claim? Or, can it be added to the list of drivers that over promise and under deliver?

First, let’s take a look at the specifications of the driver itself. Taylormade is incorporating “Flight Control Technology” for simple face angle and loft tuning. The shaft and grip is incredibly light, which helps increase swing speed. The head of the club features an aerodynamic design intended to reduce wind resistance and create a faster head speed. Lastly, Taylormade is attempting to reduce the effect of off-center hits with an inverted cone clubface.

With the technical specifications out of the way, let’s talk about what’s important – its performance. The Taylormade RocketBallz driver has a very light and pleasing feel at impact. It’s noticeably lighter than most drivers, which, to most, is a good thing. You’ll also find that the club feels incredibly forgiving thanks to its wide body, and the negative effect of off-center shots is much less drastic. The playability is top notch with a medium ball flight and fantastic distance.

The Taylormade RocketBallz driver is aimed at those looking for increased distance and accuracy. And let’s be honest, that’s most golfers. Unlike other drivers that make this claim, the RocketBallz succeeds thanks to its lightweight feel and wide body which increases forgiveness on off-center hits.

Rocketballz Owner Reviews:

Just purchased the Tour RBZ today. My new white Cobra ZXL was blown away on the launch monitor by the RBZ! 15 yards longer, with less spin n better launch angle. I'm a 60 yr old scratch player that needs to keep my distance up so carrying the ball 268 with the RBZ is just what my game needed. Traded the Cobra, bought the Tour RBZ, and added new R11 irons with Project x shafts to my bag also...

Upon hearing the name, I was immediately against this club. Figured it was just "new" Burner. After hitting it in the simulator along side of the R11, R11s, and Burner 2.0, it is by far the best in my opinion. Despite the green accents (not too bad or distracting really), the club is lighter than any of the other TM drivers and with the draw bias, it goes a mile. I found it to be very forgiving as well. Even more so than the Ping G15. I was hitting the RBZ Driver and not the Tour version so can't comment on that.

I tried the Rocketballz driver at Golf Galaxy in the Senior flex. I have never hit a driver this far in the simulator. I bought it right then and there! Cannot wait till it gets here and I can play it on the course. It's going to be a GREAT day and a SUPER summer this year!!!
