TaylorMade took a deep breath during the PGA Tour's off week. Dustin Johnson took to Twitter to show off the back of a Taylormade SpeedBlade irons, which boasts a brushed silver finish with blue accents.
TaylorMade says, increases ball speed and elevates the launch angle to boost distance, and provides more control because shots land on a steep angle. In addition, TaylorMade lowered the SpeedBlade's center of gravity to further increase the launch angle and to put more power behind shots hit low on the clubface – which the company says happens almost three-quarters of the time.
The SpeedBlades continue the TaylorMade trend of cutting Speed Pockets into their clubheads, as found in such clubs as the Taylormade RocketBladez irons and RocketBallz woods. The Speed Pocket is a deep slot that runs from heel to toe on the sole just behind the clubface that allows the face to flex and rebound faster.
The new Speedblade irons have a great look and if you are in the market for a new set of clubs these should be up towards the top of the list. They have a great look and from all accounts they have a great feel to them. We have done quite a few club fittings for TaylorMade irons and to give you extra control you may want to consider have the length of these clubs reduced by about half an inch this will just give you a bit more control and help you find the centre of the club more often.
This iron set also has a really low Centre of Gravity which gives a higher launch and a very strong flight and it is also noted that the speed pocket has a polymer badge which is designed to take away unwanted vibration and has the benefit of giving a great feel and a superb sound. The main feature of this club is the speed pocket and this feature was first seen in the TaylorMade RocketBallZ RBZ irons and we are told that the speed pocket is now extended and the benefit of this is that you will gain faster ball speeds especially when the ball is struck off centre.
Overall, this speedblade irons is a great club and something you should be proud to have it in your bag and the wedges are quite nice as well.
