    I'm in the market for new irons and I can't decide to either save up for graphite shafts or steel shafts

    With you being 24 I would strongly suggest going steel. Graphite will limit your playing potential. Get properly fit for your shafts and clubs and this game becomes easier and more enjoyable. A fitting may cost $100 but know you have the correct shaft and clubs will save you well more than that in lost balls.

    Unless you have a very slow swing speed you should stick with Steel. I went with Taylor Made RocketBladz last year. Very happy with them. I would go to a dedicated golf shop (if you have one near you) and have them size and fit you. Test 5 different 6 irons to see what you hit best and what looks best to you. I say that because a lot of my decision was how the club looked to me at address.

    Anyone have any input on the taylormade rocketballz drivers? Looking at the original rbz driver,or the rbz 2.

    I could really care less about having an adjustable driver, just looking for something a bit forgiving for slight miss hits

    It is good to try different drivers to find the one that works for you.

    I've been using the 1st gen RBZ driver 9.5 degrees for a year. When I first bought it last May I was getting 230-300yds. Now I'm much better with my driver and am getting 250-320 yds with the RBZ. I love this driver! I purchased it used (no scratches) from PGA superstore. I added the Winn DriTac midsize grip. My driver is not adjustable. I had the R11 and the adjustments started hindering me, so I gave the club to my Son.

    Last month I had the longest drive of my life on a downhill par 5, 370yds with roll. The par 5 is tiered and I caught the edge of the last tier and hit rolled 70 yds. I was inside the 150 yd stick at Hard Labor Creek #13 in Rutledge,GA.

    I've tried the new drivers: Slider, R1, RBZ Stage 2, Cobra bio cell, Callaway Big bertha(New one that recently came out), Nike. In the video wall at PGA Superstore. None of them would clear 250yds.

    Good luck with your selection.

    I've used the rbz for a round and liked it. Price differences is only $25 for either rbz or rbz2

    Try both. Most golf resellers will let you try a club for a few days. Taylormade preowned may have some great deals on used.

    I have the RBZ Stage 2 3 wood 15 degree. Picked it up new on ebay $89 last year. It is a very good club. Getting 210-260yds when I hit it. I struggle sometimes making good contact. Still learning where to place it in my feet.

    i use a Callaway Diablo 3w and driver. Love both of them. I get superb distance and they fly straight and loft is perfect. I got mine on discount in a misbin location at a local golf store. So i took advantage.

    I still need to get fitted. Im shooting great but i feel i've reached a point where now i am compensating for the club height. Im 6'8" so normal length just wont do.

    I really need to get out and play, a 66 or 67 year old guy here at work has been wanting me to play. He knows I don't play much so its no competition for him. I just have these no name Cougar clubs that I bought years ago. Do clubs really make a difference in playing? I guess they do as they have more up to date club technology.

    You are still the one who has to swing them, but they have come a long way in distance, forgiveness, and the ability to get the ball up much easier depending on what type of club you purchase.
