I'm also curious if anyone has any feedback. I occasionally game a RBZ Stage 2 Tour, but since my UDI 2 takes the hybrid's place in the bag 80% of the time, I've never felt the need to update the hybrid.
Which 18º product are you talking about in your statement below?
"Having been able to hit the 18’ product already. I can tell you the following in comparison to 2013:"
I think he is referencing 2018 rescues. M3/M4
I think the Stage 2 rescues are still really good. The SLDR hybrids are still in my backup bag. But, like jll62, I have a driving iron in place of a hybrid. I have trouble with a hybrid off the tee and went that route.
Certainly will hit the new stuff when they come out.
It looks to me like the M2 and M4 are more similar to the RBZ Stage 2 than the M1 and M3. M2 descrition says it is easy to launch and has a draw bias. M4 is similar but does not mention draw bias. How does it play from rough, deck, tee?
I do not now what previous model M1 and M3 might be similar to. The heads appear to be more compact and have moveable weights and adjustable hosel but I am curious as to the launch / flight, and ease or not of hitting out of rough, off the deck, tee, and rough.
I don't have a lot of opportunity where I live to demo so looking for info. I am going to Orlando in a few weeks and hope to find some place near there to demo.
I have the 2017 M1 in 19 degrees. Easy to launch, good out of the first cut and a real pleasure to hit, lovely dull 'thud' when you get it just right. It's got to be worth a look.
I have an RBZ 3H and that has alwyas been my go-to for 200 yards out. I just recently replaced my Callaway 4H with an M2 Rescue 4H and can't wait to hit the links. Trackman showed that I was hitting it straight to 180 yards!
