Is there much difference in the RBZ 3 wood or the RBZ 3 wood stage 2 or is the original 3 wood just as good.

Head is smaller on Stage 2. Might be easier to get airborne off fairway for some. Less spin on Stage 2 although it is negligible.

I personally think the original RBZ is an excellent fairway wood and it looks better. No problem off the deck and a bomber off the tee.

Off the deck is the biggest difference for me

I have both the original RBZ Tour and the Stage 2 Tour 3 woods and have compared them in about a dozen practice rounds this season.  I still prefer the original RBZ for looks, sound, playability, and feel.   Distance is comparable between the two with a slight edge to the Stage 2 on pured shots.  I have my original RBZ reshafted with a UST Mamiya Attas 4U and it is an absolute beast off the tee and I find it easy to hit off the deck.  Helped tighten up my dispersion pattern as well.

Personally, I found the "thud" of the Stage 2 on contact not to be as appealing as the "crack" of the original RBZ, which relates to it's "feel" for me.    IMHO both are great clubs.

I have had both.  Favor the Stage 2 Tour by a nose.  I am a bit more consistent with it both off the tee and fairway.  Also just a tad longer than with the original.
