Since the purchase I've played about six or seven rounds with the TaylorMade Rocketbladez irons and have been quite impressed. True as advertised, the ball does seem to explode off the face of the club, but I have been even more impressed with the consistency that I'm hitting these clubs.
The irons’ signature feature is the Speed Pocket, which TaylorMade is billing as ''that little thing'' but which they believe will make these clubs the next big thing. The Speed Pocket is a 2-millimeter-wide slot cut in the sole of the 3-iron through 7-iron that permits the face to flex farther and more easily upon impact, particularly when a golfer hits the ball low on the face.
After buying the new cheap Taylormade RBZ irons I have been hitting straighter and longer. I have more confidence in my shots and course management. TaylorMade says, these irons are as hot as many drivers, and could help most golfers add two to five yards per shot. Higher-lofted clubs like the sand wedge and lob wedge don’t include the Speed Pocket, but have redesigned cavities to improve their feel, and feature TaylorMade’s ATV (All-Terain Versatility) sole for improved workability around the greens.
These are excelent clubs, as can be expected with all Taylor made products. These cheap golf clubs come standard with plus an inch and a half, which I needed. The quality and feel are excelent and I have already shaved several strokes off my game. I have had to club down due to the extra distance these clubs have given me. The addition of a 4 iron in my bag has also helped.
In addition, these clubs come equipped with heavier steel shafts to promote better rhythm and control in shorter swings. Careful management of the RocketBladez’s face thickness, Center of Gravity location and the Speed Pocket help enlarge the effective sweet spot, which makes for more consistent shotmaking – and therefore more consistent distance gaps throughout the set.
Again, I have nothing bad to say about the cheap Ping G25 irons -- PING speaks for itself -- but buy what you hit best. In my case, that is definitely the Rocketbladez.
