Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club Review

Taylormade-Rocketballz-Stage-2-Rescue-ClubWhile Taylormade may best be known for producing great driver lines over the past few years along with Tour performance golf balls that stack up well against the Pro V and Callaway Hex Tours, what really doesn’t get enough attention these days is their line of hybrids currently out on the market, especially the new Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club.

The Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club features the trademark white matte crown finish with a black clubface that is similar to all of their new driver lines, and the rescue club also features four distinct technologies.  The first is a thinner, faster flexing clubface (known as Taylormade RocketSteel supplied by Carpenter) to create more ball speed and distance.  The second is an improved speed pocket located in the sole of the club for even more increased ball speed.  The third technology is a shallower face and lower head profile than their stage 1 model to create added playability.  Lastly, the rescue club also features a lower and more forward center of gravity for higher launch and lower spin.

Positive

With that said, is all of the technology that was put into the club well worth it?  For starters, the Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club really provides amazing distance whether off the tee, in the fairway, or even a bad lie as well.  The golf ball just seems to shoot off of the club face on every shot, and the combination of the speed pocket and thinner face really helps to promote the greater distance.  It is arguably the longest hybrid out on the market today, and those who are looking for added distance when it comes to this area of their games should certainly demo this club a few times.  Another great feature that the rescue club offered when playing a few rounds with it is the high launch that it offers.  Many golfers switch to hybrids because of the difficulty of getting high irons to land softly on the greens and get a higher trajectory on approach shots, and the Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club provides a great answer to this problem.  Lastly, the playability of the club is above average, and really allows golfers to shape the ball any way they please, which makes it a true “rescue” club more than anything else.

Negative

The only real negative when it comes to the Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club is the forgiveness that it offers.  That is not to say that it offers below average forgiveness, but that there are other models out there such as the Adams Super S and Callaway X Hot that provide much greater forgiveness than this model.  One can still get decent distance out of shots that are not hit on the sweet spot of the club along with good accuracy though.

Overall

Overall the Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club is one of the better hybrids out on the market today, providing players with great distance along with above average launch and playability whether off the tee or on approach.  It may not have as great of forgiveness as other models on the market today, but if one is willing to overlook this they will find the Taylormade Rocketballz Stage 2 Rescue Club to be much to their liking.
