Anyone hit these two side by side?  I'm really liking the Burner 2.0s and the black finish as well as them being cheaper now.  But if the RBZ's are an improvement, I'll save up a little more cash and pick a set up.  Hoping to hear if anyone has either one of these sets with s300s.

I've only tried them in the stock steel shaft, but I couldn't tell a difference between the 1.0, 2.0, or RBZ. The RBZ is getting some extra pub on its long irons, but I don't carry a 3 or 4 iron, so i didn't try those.

I recently demoed the rbz vs my old burner 1.0 and both outdoor flight and ping inflight showed I had no gain in distance or dispersion.

Would you say the 2.0 is a big improvement over the 1.0?  I've seen some 1.0's sets go for a real good price and wouldnt mind picking one up.  Any differences other than the non conforming grooves?

The 2.0 is a bit more compact, has a little less offset, feels noticably better (tho subjective) and has a little bit better turf interraction. I used both extensively set up the same and with KBS tours. The 1.0 may be a little more forgiving with the bigger head.

I only have a little experience with the 2.0 so Qegurezi probably knows a lot more about them. I think you could go either way and be equally happy. Time for a demo!

RBZ's long irons (#3-#5) are more like "hybrid' irons, designed for higher launch.  

RBZ mid/short irons (#6-#P) are fairly similar to Burner 1.0's and 2.0's w/maybe a tiny bit less offset.

RBZ wedges (A,S,L) have the new ATV sole on them and are really nice.  Additionally, the wedges all come with 105g shafts if you get them in steel.

I had Burner 2.0's and like my RBZ's even better - forgiving, efficient, decent-player look from the #7 through L, performance in the #3-#6.

So far, I couldn't be happier.

Can't comment on Burners but have about 10 rounds on the RBZ and can't say enough good things about them.  Great trajectory, distance and forgiveness.  Feel is good for cast club.  4 and 5 are clunky BUT they are stupid easy to hit and long.   So easy and so long that my 4 has kicked the hybrid out of the bag.  Long for me by the way is a consistent 210 up to 220 with the 4 iron.  Great clubs!!

Thanks for the info guys!  Hopefully a range or club will have a demo day soon so I can hit them outside.  Do the irons have the same 85g steel shaft?  

@lobber...how has the finish held up with the RBZ irons?  I've heard that the finish on the burner 2.0's wear out pretty quick.

I'm in the same boat. Hit the rbz on the lm and loved them. Hit the burner 2.0s and distance was the same but the were ever so slightly harsher. Still not harsh at all, just not as solid as the rbz. I only hit the 6i's, so can't comment on the longer clubs.

If I could get rid of my x20tours I would order up some burner 2.0s in a heartbeat.

I didn't realize the RBZ had the ATV soles.  I usually ignore the wedges in iron sets.  That may be a big selling point if you were looking into a set with matching wedges.

The RBZ's were the first set I bought since Ping Eye 2's BECAUSE of the wedges.  Yes, these wedges with ATV technology in the soles are that good, and the slightly heavier shafts make them even better.

This set is nicely developed to address the needs of long irons, mid-irons and short irons.

hit the rbz, 2.0, and vr pro cavity.  the rbz felt slightly better than the 2.0 but the pro cavs  felt and looked the best.  the vr pro cabs definitely require a good swing but when ur on...a great set of clubs.  I'm probably gonna go with the 2.0s just cause they are cheaper and I like the look of the finish better....tho a black finish with rbz green highlights would have  been nice.  now I'm trying to find a good set
