The PGA Tour is back in action. TaylorMade is back in the headlines with the clubmaker’s latest unveiling. Following buzz over the last 12 months surrounding the recent Taylormade SLDR Driver for sale, TaylorMade has unveiled its new SpeedBlade irons.
Meant to succeed the RocketBladez, the TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons reviews reportedly feature an enhanced ‘speed pocket’ which can contribute towards improved club head speed, distance and flight. The SpeedBlade irons also feature a center of gravity that’s lower than the RocketBladez.
With the company’s release of the Taylormade R1 driver price, it claimed that 80 percent of golfers were playing the wrong loft. TaylorMade kept up with its performance research in creation of the new iron and says that 72 percent of iron shots hit by golfers playing between a 5 and 25 handicap are struck below the center of the clubface.
Thus, the lower CG and ultimately wider sweetspot. Lower handicappers and scratch players will notice the irons’ improved feedback. The slot is extended all the way through the sole of the iron, as well as in three different spots on the back part of the irons to give the structure more flex. That creates a larger area of maximum spring-like effect, or a larger sweetspot.
Only a handful of professional players carried the Taylormade RocketBladez irons for sale, leading TaylorMade engineers, when creating the SpeedBlade irons, to create an iron that would be playable by a 9-handicap as well as a proven tour player.
