From photos and on TV, I can see he's a Titleist boy so I'm guessing:
Driver: 905R
3-Wood: PT 906 F2
Irons: 695.MB Forged or ZM Forged
Wedges: Vokey Spin-Milled or 200 Series
Putter: ?

Anyone know specifics?

I rate this guy real high - regardless of the fact that up until last Sunday he's not won a title for 2 years, but his standings in this years Majors are impressive: T8, T4, T7, T20

Recently (last week he was playing a 907D2 with ProLaunch Red shaft in x-flex).

All of his woods and hybrid now have this shaft.

He often carries 4 wedges from 50deg to 60deg, depending on the event/course

Karlsson's used the Grafalloy Blue/905R combo for years but as jgpl says, he's recently been testing the Pro-Launch Red in his driver (though I believe it was one of the new 909 series). I wouldn't be surprised if we see the 905R at the Ryder Cup though.

He alternates the 5 wood (which is bent to 19*) with a 585.H hybrid or a 735CM 2 iron depending on the course. He also occassionally uses 4 wedges and it's normally the 3 iron that makes way.

Incidentally, his irons and wedges are just over 1" longer than standard. He's a big guy!

Check out photos from last week's Mercedes Benz Championship and you can see he's using the 905R (the shaft looks completely blue which would indicate a Graffaloy blue?).
Also, he's been using this driver in practice at Valhalla too.

As for the 3-wood, that's definately one of the new 909-F2/F3 series. The shaft, I don't know (mainly black with a gold section/red band toward the handle?)

Does he definately have all his clubs extended an extra 1"?!

Yeah, I'm pretty confident he'll continue with the 905R/Grafalloy Blue combo for a while. Titleist aren't the sort of company to force their players to switch anyway so if he's comfortable with that, he'll use it for as long as he wants.

The 3 wood is the new 909F3 and the shaft is the Grafalloy Pro-Launch Red. He'll probably put the 5 wood (also 909F3) with the same shaft in the bag this week because of the course.

His irons and wedges are just over 1" longer than standard. I'm not 100% sure about his driver but I believe it's a touch longer than 45". Don't forget that he's 6 ft 5in! That's an inch taller than Ernie and 3 inches taller than Vijay.

So, what's in Robert's bag in Abu Dhabi now that he's signed to Adams? I'm guessing Scotty and Vokeys are still in, but what Adams is he playing?

Okay I found this: http://www.adamsgolf...ams-tour-staff/

According to Adams he's using:

Driver: Adams Speedline Fast 12 LS
Fairway: Adams Speedline Fast 12
maybe Adams a12 hybrid, no word on irons

Apparently he also picked up 18yds with the driver and 13yds with the FW switching from Titleist.

Anyone know what the deal is on his 3 wood? It appears to be a tour version of the f12. It looks like a version they made of the f11 fw that ryan moore was using. Has a different sole design and imo it looks dramatically better. You can clearly see it in this video.

Adam's is really making a big move on the golf market. Their product offerings have been better and better over the years.

Just to bump- he looks to be playing the 712 Titleist MB irons at the Volvo Champs. Not really suprising though.

Geez doesn't look like a thing.  I wonder how long he has to convert?  You would think the Fw and Hy would be manditory.
