Tried SLDER and RBZ 2 only. Tested the SLDR at MBGC, pretty good ball flight and a sound i would not hate as it sounded like i hit my irons-quite muted. Shaft weight at 55~57g i suppose after being trimmed from 60 that i felt suitable for me. Best combination i tried is a 9.5* R.

Tested the RBZ 2 at SEL and BBB many months back when it just came out. At SEL someone was trying the demo from proshop so i borrow as the staff and i know each other. Hit it and it feel like a typical TM driver, pretty loud. Not sure how far i hit cause i did not notice as it was set to 12* Smile. Soaring to the sky but it feels great. At bbb, i tried it at 10.5* R. I knew that this club will fly pass the 200m and it didnt let me down. Smile 

Would like to hear on X-hot driver cause it feels comfortable when i held it and waggle but never really try to hit one

The sound of the SLDR is very muted. If you are a titleist / ping driver user, u will not like the sound of SLDR

I have tried the XHot driver (US spec) at OCC Panwest a few months ago ... I must say the impact was explosive and effortless to launch the ball ... To me, Stage II impact is even more explosive and if you can load the shaft well, it could launch high and far. Both drivers produce high pitch cracking like sound if one can impact the ball on the sweet spot ... Both drivers are awesome and definitely value for money stuff ...

cheers

I tried my friend's SLDR in an after market matrix white tie shaft
It is rather muted at impact, ball flight is strong (neither too low not ballooning) but not as long compared to my Ryoma (5m shorter perhaps)

He originally got this SLDR in jap specs but was disappointed with the stock shaft, he said it was inconsistent (distance wise) despite good hits. He is a 9hcp so he is a good ball striker. So in case if you wanna pay a bit more to buy the jap specs, maybe think again...

I tried the x-hot driver in both Asian and global specs
To be honest, it never gave me the distance I had when I was gaming the older Razr Fit
The x-hot fw is pretty good though.

Had the chance to test Extreme Fit, Razr Fit and X hot. 
All with same shaft.

The x hot turned out to be the highest spinning of the three.
Based on trackman stats.

No surprise it did not give you much distance as compared to the rest.

Asahi, is the Extreme the lowest spinning of the 3?

Btw, which head launched the highest?

With the BB 6S on all 3, the xHot launched the highest, followed by Razr fit then Extreme fit.

FYI... I was at the CIMB CLassic for 4 days, saw all the pros teeing off... at least 90% of pros using Taylormade drivers were using the SLDR

Is it as good as what TM marketed it to be?... time to find out for ourselves Very Happy

Bro, LTNS!

Pros are pros. You could give them a spade and they'll still belt the ball 250m down the center of the fairway.

Yea bro... LTNS

They're playing for millions... I doubt they'd go for a spade just because they're paid to

True, but they're also sponsored for millions so I don't think the prize money makes too big a difference for these folks.

the top 10, maybe... but for the rest, it's not exactly raining dollar bills...

also, the prize money and benefits that come with winning an event is huge... just ask woodland, who missed a 10 foot putt... or fei jai Kiradech who had numerous birdie putts yesterday

Golfwrx says that Moore is using  TaylorMade Burner Superfast TP but I thought I saw an Adams driver... Then again, we all know Moore changes equipment as often as one changes underwear...

Watz the market price for a stage 2 RBZ driver now? Hard to keep track of TM's prices. Smile Maybe interested in RBZ S2.

Wa.... Price for golf equipment, forever dropping.
Got to try the FT Optiforce driver today at OCC.
They only have a 440cc on project 5.5 shaft.
Finds the 9.5" more air boring than my 10.5 xhot which is on regular shaft.
Distant wise I find it slightly shorter than my xhot; could be the cc or I can't fully load the 5.5 shaft....
Now waiting to try the 460cc FT Optiforce....
