This topic seems to discuss before ley. Also cannot remember. For my view, I prefer Stage 2 more than R1 due to the shape of the face and the distance I can get from S2 compare than R1.

If you like to tinker with the settings on your driver to 'dial in' then R1

If you prefer a simple line it up and whack driver then RBZ stage II

I will say that both driver are very forgiving and come with relatively good stock shaft.

Choose R1
- if u wanna straighten your drive thru adjusting the weight bolt and butt plate.
- long n forgiving
- loud sound

Choose Stage2
- for the ease in ball alignment
- long n forgiving
- Simplexity

TM comes up with new drivers like "every other month".... also seems to be always marketing it goes further and straighter and more forgiving for every new model.. haha...

That's the sales strategy of TM. 

They wanna equip every golfer with a forgiving golf set at affordable price.

I dislike R1 with too many available settings. You are making the driver compensate for your shortfall.
Tried my wife's RBZ stage 2 and finds it quite forgiving.
Sorry to be biase, but I think callaway makes better driver and clubs.

Just buy the cheaper one. Those white crowns won't last long anyway, my stage 2 looks quite used after just a year.

The stage 2 has a really nice and large forgiving head, but I find the 46 inch shaft odd for a driver that is supposed to be forgiving.
