I wonder if they will next year?  I guess they may wait and see what the success rate is going to be with the R1 line.

I think they should stick with just the R1 driver, it's cooler. R11 was cool and they they came out with the r11 3 wood and nobody i know liked them. i have seen plenty of great hits with the RBZ fairwoods though.

think about it this way, the Stage 2 is so long because of the speed pocket!
why would i buy a R1 fairway that doesnt have a speed pocket?
so they only went Stage 2

The Stage2 fwys do not have as much loft adjustability as the R1.  That is one if the reasons why I like the covert fwys/hybrids concept.

My R11s 3 and 5 woods are both in my closet at this very moment.

At that same moment, there is a RocketBallz in my bag.

I would be very pleased if they just stick with the RBZ line.

The way they used it was to supposedly increase forgiveness and ballspeed lower on the face. As i understand it, they face is less hot, but is boosted to the COR limit by the slot, and the bottom of the face benefits.

If it was a Callaway line of woods, like the Razr Black, they could discontinue them in 6 weeks. I'll go searching for your comments about that fiasco. Shouldn't take long. One-trick pony.

It would not surprise me at all if TM releases the R1 fwys/hybrids next year.  That is if the one loft thing is a hit this year.
