TaylorMade has still maintained the new products and technologies coming with the introduction of the new RBZ line of drivers, fairway woods, and irons. I had the opportunity to play the TaylorMade RBZ irons over the past 10+ rounds and these are my opinions on the look, feel, and overall capabilities of the clubs.
The set I played was a standard RocketBallz Iron Set (4 through Attack) with the regular-flex steel shafts. My initial impression while unboxing of the irons was good. I really like the dark gray steel, the sole of the irons have a nice shine, the carbon accents are nice, and the quality feels solid.
The solid feel of the clubs results in a high degree of confidence for me. The clubs feel smooth and consistent throughout the swing. Each club is individually optimized and tuned – so different clubs have noticeably different looks.
From my first few shots on the range – I was very impressed with the entire set of irons. The ball flight was high and the clubs consistently promoted a high draw for me.
Finally, these clubs perform similar to the majority of other game-improvement irons that I’ve tested. The long irons give me slightly more distance than I would typically get.
