thought about a new X Hot Pro ....
BUT, I was in GT the other day on their new LM
can't remember which one it was, but BY FAR the most accurate one I have ever been on
FINALLY had adjustable tee heights too, which was nice

I hit my RF w Tour AD DI 6 up against the RBZ Tour TP w Matrix HD 6 shaft 9º

long story short, the RBZ was on average 12 yds longer, 10yds closer to being online, 6-700 rpm lower, less side spin and lower LA
didnt print it out, but if I remember correctly, the RBZ average was 11-11.8 LA, 3100 rpm, 1yd offline right, 279-284 and 107 club head speed
I was about 2-3mph faster w the RBZ than my RF, which is why im guessing it was longer
this was set to 9.75º, HD6 Stiff shaft, stock length

I compared it as well to the OZIK 6 shaft, which actually was about 9 yds longer yet, BUT average was 14yds offline - BOTH left and right
I decided on the HD6 for lower spin, optimal LA, and distance offline was much tighter

felt and sounded awesome to me
never thought Id have a white club in the bag, but I do now and seems to be a good start to 2013

after I sold my RF head and my Tour AD DI (which is actually for sale in the BST right now ;) ), it will be a wash on price

The only "new" driver that I have hit is the 913D2. I liked it. It had a good feel and sound compared to a lot of the new stuff. It feel much better off the face than the 910D3. I never bought a 910 driver simply because it didn't have that Titleist feel that I like. Probably just the shafts I tried, who knows?

If I went with a new Titleist, it would be the D3 with either a 73-X BB or WB. I would also like to hit the Anser because of the excellent reviews I've read about it. I'm ready to ditch my Cobra AMP. I'm not happy with the shaft, and I would rather just go for an entirely new combo over just swapping shafts. I really like my 910F with 83-X BB, so I'm going to go a similar route with the driver (just slightly lighter).

I'm hoping Cleveland will surprise with some new head technology. Barring that, the RBZ stage 2 looks really nice. I like that they moved the center of gravity forward. I guess Nike did that as well with the Covert.

My list to try: Anser, Adams super LS, Cleveland classic, R1, RBZ. Essentially I'm looking for the lowest spinning head I can get in a driver. I usually use a 9.5 or 10.5 head so I can launch it high. I'm currently gaming a 2004 Launcher 460 with the stock fujikura gold shaft. It's a great stick but I know a new driver will make a big change in my game. I'm really excited to try these out!
Yea, I play blades cause

solid numbers. i can only imagine how discounted the RBZ will be by the time all these drivers come out.. i love the feel of callaway woods (impact feel) but there's something i just like about the R1.  but will let the launch monitors decide for me, as i will play anything that gives me the most distance.

adams, cobra and covert will be added to the list.  thanks for "reminding" me about these clubs.

I love my Razr Fit 9.5 with AD DI 7x even after this whole season it's so long and solid feeling, not to mention the straightest driver I've ever owned. The extreme will have to really impress me o get me to change.
The Razr Extreme fairways look awesome, I'm hoping they will give me better numbers than my rbz tour 14.5* with AD DI 8x. Bc I've already bought another DI 8x shaft for the new 3 wood and I will be disappointed if I wasted my money. I already have enough wasted money sitting in the closet lol.

I was thinking of all these, Ping. Titleist, Callaway, NEVER TaylorMade, then i thought i'd try the Mizuno JPX 825, WOW!!!!, its longer than my old 910 D2 with a tour ad-di 6s and so much more consistent, and a quarter of the price...one hell of a club from a company that we all knows makes one of the best if not the best range of irons...try it you will not be disappointed !!

913 vs Covert vs Amp Cell Pro. those are the only three that appeal to me at least. I'm sick of the white garbage.
