Irons can be a golfer’s best friend or their worst nightmare — and unless you can drive to the green each and every time you tee off, you probably spend more time with your irons than anything else in your bag. If not, you will after you start playing with TaylorMade RocketBladez irons. These clubs were built for the weekend golfer, and boy, are they forgiving.
When TaylorMade was dreaming up the RocketBladez irons, they did their homework. One of the things they learned was that 72 percent of all impacts with irons hit below center on the face of the club. Armed with this knowledge, they set out to design a set of irons club that have one of the biggest sweet spots in golf.
The first thing you’ll notice about a RocketBladez irons is the clubhead — it’s big, it’s thick, and it looks like it’s going to get in its own way. Nothing could be further from the truth, though. Inside that head is a specially designed polyurethane pocket (dubbed the Speed Pocket) that reduces weight and vibration, keeps debris to a minimum, and all without inhibiting the flex of the face of the club.
These irons are some of the most consistent you’ll ever hit because of that Speed Pocket and the big, forgiving face in front of it. They’re also long — for some golfers, alarmingly so. Everybody dreams of gaining another 20 yards from just picking up a new club, but when you do find that magic iron, you’re going to have to adjust everything about your game to make it work. If you can deal with balls that fly a little higher and a heck of a lot farther, these irons are definitely for you.
TaylorMade’s RocketBladez irons are also made to be forgiving, and although you can feel it when you make off-center contact, your ball will still fly straight most of the time. You’ll lose a little distance on a bad swing, but that’s a small price to pay for the added backspin and speed most middle to high handicappers will see when playing with these Irons.
If you’re looking for a club that feels solid throughout your swing, produces a smooth feel at impact with little excess vibration, and improves your game without a lot of sliders, buttons, or knobs, get a set of TaylorMade RocketBladez irons. They’re like nothing you’ve ever played and now that they’ve been on the courses a little while, you can justify the cost by trading in your old irons for a set of these gently used golf clubs.
