 My issue with TM RBZ is that the clubs are an inch too long to be hit properly.

 My issue with TM RBZ is that the clubs are an inch too long to be hit properly. 

The TM 5H is 25 degrees and 40.25 inches, the 913H "5H" is 27 and 39.  The 913H "4" is 24 degrees and 39.5.  The lofts on the Titleist 913H correspond to the lofts on the forged irons.  All else equal, including the golfer's ability to adjust to the club length, physics implies that 25 vs 27 degrees and 40.25 vs 39 inches should hit longer - when just buying off the rack.  Working backwards through fitting, shaft options, and head adjustability, and taking into acccount gapping distances, longer become a marketing term.  Hitting a 5H that lands on the center of the green and rolls off the back versus hitting 5 yards less and stopping is also a consideration.  It really comes down to each individual to see if longer and better are the same in a side by side comparison.

I tried the RBS 2 when a TM rep came to my course. I compeared it to my 913 however it was an improvement of the RB1 but 913 was about 2-3yds longer. Really depends on personal preference

I tested the stage2 v my 910 3 wood and the stage two was 2 yards shorter on average. I have yet to hit the 913 fairways and hybrids, but I'd imagine if the difference between the 910 fairways is the same as it was the between the drivers you can expect a few more yards out of the 913. I can't comment on the 910/913h or the rbz hybrids, I've never hit any of them. I still have a 585h in my bag and I doubt it'll be coming out anytime soon.

If I were you I would go with the RBZ (original) 3 wood because the stage two has a weird head pattern that I can't look at.  Then for the hybrid go with the Titleist 913H.  The RBZ wood is longer but the Titleist hybrid is much better (my opinion of course)  because it seems to be more controllable and workable, the RBZ hybrid is built solely on distance whereas the 913H has great overall performance as well as fitting that will dial the club in like an iron with the sure fit housel, and the adjustable weight in the head to customize the swing weight.

Hope I helped and reply if you have any other questions,

TM clubs are not only way long, they are very upright.  I found a RBZ 17* fairway very hard to hit (specs show a 43.5" shaft and 59.5* lie angle).
