What would be the benefits of switching?  I currently play the RBZ irons, and i hit them Long and Straight.  I looked at the 6-iron comparrisons for the Rballz and Rbladez on the Taylormade website, and compared them to the other clubs, Rocketballz is ALWAYS 3-5 yds longer than Rocketbladez.  So if this is a "distance" iron, what would be the benefit of me leaving RBZ for Bladez?

Have you read anything about the technology used?  Watched the videos?  All the info is there.


Think "consistency"...

Newest isn't necessarily greatest for everyone.  If the RBZ irons are great for you I would hesitate to take them outta the bag...

The new RBladez are upgraded Burner 2.0 technology with the Inverted Cone Techology for increased distance.  TM has also added the rear lower Slot technology for better trajectory on lowere than COG strikes.

The Rbladez replace the Rballz in the taylormade line up this year they are very similar the Rbladez tours our a players club replacing the MC
I am going to get the Rbladez to replace my Rballz but this is mostly due to the need to get stiff flex shafts and wanting to bend the clubs a little weak

For some reason when I saw the title if this thread I has to laugh a bit and think, is this a golf related topic?

No, i'm not a TM basher- I've used their drivers and fairway woods for years- just nothing recently...

Certainly some differences in the two irons from a construction standpoint.  The RBladez have the new Speed Pocket for improved height on low CG hits....RBZ hasn't got that.  Both have the ICT with RBladez ICT being tweaked for improvements with the SP.
