TaylorMade Announces RocketBladez Irons by Tony Covey – @GolfSpyT:
Initially I spent some time hitting the RocketBladez on the range. The weather was iffy, so I left the FlightScope at home, but two things struck me.
The RocketBladez is stupid easy to hit…and hit straight
Unless you’re unearthing gophers (which I did a few times) there appears to be almost zero penalty for missing the center of the clubface.
Now would probably be a good time to point out that while TaylorMade has made some mention of distance (Freakishly Longer! #freakishlylonger – it wouldn’t be TaylorMade if they didn’t), the real buzz word around the release of the RocketBladez is consistency. Sadly, consistency won’t ever sell like distance, however; so the marketing guys included a healthy dose of both. Did I mention they’re freakishly longer?
According to TaylorMade CEO, Mark King, “The genius of the Speed Pocket is that not only does it deliver more speed for more distance, it delivers consistent speed, so shots fly a consistent distance”.
See…consistency…and yes, distance too.
