TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons
Rocketbladez Iron, Taylormade Rocketbladez,
The TaylorMade RocketBladez iron (http://www.golfaustralianprice.com/TaylorMade-RocketBladez-Irons-australia-1283.html) has been launched with much fanfare, but that is OK when there is a significant technical improvement. In this case it is the speed pocket on the sole of the club which allows the face to flex more to generate more ball speed and hence distance
It is the same principle that you know and love from the RocketBallz fairway wood, but this is the first time it has been put into an iron. TaylorMade want to be the number one distance iron and this is right in that category as it is all about ball speed. The technologies for increase speed that started in drivers are now coming to irons and the manufacturing processes improve to allow them to increase the spring like effect of the faces of irons.
The other big difference for us was the design of the RocketBladez iron. You might expect it to be chunky with lots of offset, but you would be wrong. They are not blades (despite the name) and the mid-sized heads had a generous but not too thick top line and the offset was no more than you would expect on an average iron. We feel that the RocketBladez, especially the long irons, will be in the bags of a wide range of players.
The speed pocket only features in the 3-7 irons and then they go to more traditional cavity backs. Normally this is where we get worried as the short irons in a cast distance set are well it all falls down. However, we have to say the RocketBladez wedges are really lovely to hit,complement the rest of the set very well and are one of the best wedges we have tried in this category.
