TaylorMade's Rocketbladez irons can change your golf game
I’ve been loyal to my TaylorMade RAC irons for almost a decade.
Every time I went to a club fitter, the answer was always the same: ‘These are fit so well for you, there’s no need to change’. Another reason I didn’t upgrade was because iron technology just hasn’t advanced as quickly as driver, ball and hybrid technology over the past 10 years.
That all changed with the release of TaylorMade’s new Rocketbladez irons. I was sent a 6-iron to test, and it’s been a game-changer. I have gotten so comfortable so quickly with the new club that I’ve retired my RACs and upgraded to nearly all Rocketbladez irons.
I’m not on the TaylorMade-adidas Golf payroll or just a TaylorMade guy. I’ve got a Nike driver and have been a fan of Adams Golf hybrids long before the company was taken over by TaylorMade last year. And my Miura wedge isn’t going anywhere (read my review here). My point is, it was the new Speed Pocket that has made all the difference and won me over.
The Speed Pocket comes in the 3- through 7-irons and promotes radical increases in speed and distance. TaylorMade studies indicate that 68 percent of shots by amateurs (like me) are miss-hits below the center of the clubface. The Speed Pocket and lower center of gravity helps these shots achieve maximum flight and length.
I now hit my 6-iron a 5-iron distance. It’s a great confidence booster to hit clubs “longer” than my friends, sometimes as much as a two-club difference. It’s also easier on the mind to put a good swing on a 5-iron than it is to feel confident about “blasting” a 3- or 4-iron.
I’m hoping these new irons get me consistently into single digits for the first time in my unspectacular career. Like every golfer, I can’t wait for summer. For more, visit TaylorMade’s website here.
