TaylorMade Speedblade Irons
The new SpeedBlade iron from TaylorMade is here and TaylorMade have made sure that it will turn heads.
TaylorMade have been clever and combined a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin plating.
So the finish stands out from the rest but where this irons really impresses is in the technology that is used to make the SpeedBlade easier to use than the older RocketBladez Irons.
The Speed Pocket remains but the design has changed, the redesigned Speed Pocket in the long to mid irons allows a large area of the face to flex and rebound at impact resulting in faster ball speeds, higher launch and better feel.
Research has told TaylorMade that 72% of shots from 5-25 handicap golfers are hit below the centre of the club face, these shots will result in a lower launching shot with inconsistent distance control. The Speed Pocket will help those shots go further and launch higher.
The all new SpeedBlade iron has be fitted with the new SpeedBlade 85 shaft from True Temper which will help generate a faster ball speed due to the reduced weight of the shaft (85 grams) and launch the ball higher for more carry. But as usual from TaylorMade they offer a custom range of shafts that can be fitted to the SpeedBlade iron, everything from Dynamic Gold to KBS C-Taper.
