On September 16, 2013, TaylorMade Golf will be releasing their latest irons for the world of golf to drool over. While many folks have been complaining and talking about how often TaylorMade Golf has been releasing new clubs, don’t forget that each of their latest releases have been very successful and perform very well. I personally have no problem with a company releasing a couple new items a year as long as their is different technology that comes along with it.
We all have different likes and wants in our clubs and just because it is the newest always doesn’t mean it’s the best for our personal game. But with more options out there for you to pick from, you are bound to find ones that fit your game. So let’s take a look at the latest irons from TaylorMade, the SpeedBlade.
From the TaylorMade Golf Website:
What’s a Speed Pocket™? A deep slot behind the clubface that allows the face to flex and rebound faster, increasing your ball speed and launch angle to boost your distance dramatically. You also get more control because your shots land on a steep angle and stop fast. Quick review: faster ball speed, higher launch angle, longer distance, quick stops. Yes, you need a Speed Pocket.
The Speed Pocket makes all other irons inferior. It’s nothing personal. It’s innovation. The Speed Pocket gives SpeedBlade irons the fastest face of any TaylorMade iron ever, creating a potent combination of ball speed, high launch, long carry and steep descent that’s never been possible before. You’ll hit shots you never thought you could — higher, longer, closer to the hole.
We’ve lowered the clubhead’s CG to further increase your launch angle. Shots scream high into the sky and stay there longer, equaling longer carry and more distance.
With irons, most golfers make impact low on the face – our studies show it happens 72% of the time. Speed, launch and distance suffers. The Speed Pocket promotes fast ball speed and high launch on low hits, giving you long distance on nearly every swing.
