Las Vegas, Nevada (January 31, 2013)–Time to get Rocket Ball-zier, as the TaylorMade slogans suggest. And the Las Vegas Golf and Tennis TaylorMade SuperStore is offering customers the opportunity to be the first in Vegas to purchase the RBZ stage 2 driver and the R1 drivers at 11:59 Thursday night, January 31, 2013, until 2 AM in the morning. Plus there will be in store drawings for three different TaylorMade equipment packages. Call 702.892.9999 for details. –By Brian Hurlburt
First prize in the in-store drawing is a package of an R1 driver, RBZ stage 2 fairway wood, a Rocketbladez combo set, and a Rocketbladez stand bag. Second prize is an R1 driver, RBZ Stage 2 fairway wood, or RBZ stage 2 rescue. And third prize is a year supply (12 dozen) TaylorMade Lethal golf balls. For visiting or local Las Vegas golfers who can't makie the midnight madness launch, the new lines will be available ongoing at the SuperStore and the new Summerlin LVG&T location starting February 1 (the Summerlin location opens next week). Las Vegas Golf and Tennis is the leading golf retailer for equipment and more. The Green Valley location is now closed but the SuperStore at Tropicana and Dean Martin is easy access for Henderson residents or Las Vegas visitors staying on the Strip (minutes away).
TaylorMade Golf introduced RocketBallz Stage 2 in January, a driver they say combines a lower and more forward CG location, a more aerodynamic head shape and an expansive, 4,100 square millimeter club face to promote up to nine more yards for better players compared to the first generation RBZ driver. Characterized by its unique crown graphic which enhances alignment, the RBZ Stage 2 driver also features TaylorMade’s Loft-Sleeve technology, which gives players the ability to easily tune loft and club face angle to fit their swing.
“It’s hard to imagine bringing a driver to market that outperforms the original RocketBallz driver,” said Todd Beach, vice president of metalwoods R&D. “Making the head of the RBZ Stage 2 driver more aerodynamic while also making the clubface larger was a tremendous challenge and succeeding was critical to promoting performance that’s superior to the first generation RBZ driver.”
