Golf Direct only sells US spec version.

Update: Managed to use the RBZ driver again this weekend.. The different feel/sound i get as mentioned previously is probably due to slower swing speed or offhits.. Got a few good hits today and the feeling is good. Distance also slightly better than my previous driver. Offhits are definitely more forgiving and distance still good.. I'm keeping this until i get really consistent Smile

Gary, what loft and shaft flex are you using on your RBZ toy? Did you reshaft it or u stick to the stock shaft?

I wonder if there is any feel and performance difference between the Asian and US spec shaft.

I'm using a 9.5* RBZ non-tour driver. Asian Spec (Mitsubishi Rayon shaft) nvr reshaft but maybe tempted to in the future when my swing gets faster. Performance difference hard to say.. but I feel much more comfortable with the Asian shaft.. Was gonna compromise and get the US spec R to save some money but decided what the heck.. haha...

I in fact prefer the RBZ to the Burner SF 2.0 in terms of performance & appearance. The latter clubhead face is closed about 2-3 deg and the head is too light. Whilst the RBZ face is square. When I tried my friend Burner, my 3 shots pull left and there was too much spin, the ball trajectory was way too high albeit the loft is 9.5 deg and S-Flex (Asian Spec) shaft.

The Burner TP version is much better and more suitable for me as it generates much less spin and offers penetrating trajectory.

Perhaps the tour RBZ will be better for you? Saw FESC selling. Better to test out first though..

I have to say this RBZ driver was fantastic , it went 220m on green and 200m at range for a 6mths slow swing newbie like myself , i'm previously using callaway warbird driver which gives me the most 200m on green and 180m at range.. I'm using the original US specs R shaft..But I find the regular shaft is a little stiffer than my previous warbird regular shaft...

Got it today (jspec) and went to whack some balls, 1st impression is the ball really launch high and easily added distance to 200m to 220m. It is too loud also.

Btw, Does any1 know how high a flight trajectory is too high? Thks
