Replacing last year’s SpeedBlade model, the AeroBurner irons go right up to the COR limits for maximum ball speed and have a low centre of gravity for a higher launch. The high-MOI cavity-back head design also allows weight to be moved to the perimeter where it increases performance on mishits.
TaylorMade’s Speed Pocket features in the 4-7 irons, offering higher launch and faster ball speeds on strikes low off the face. At address, a longer blade length, thicker top line and more offset helps to inspire confidence.
Noticeably absent from the design of the AeroBurner irons are TaylorMade’s “Face Slots,” which are two vertical slots positioned on the toe and heel areas of the club face. They are used in the company’s RSi 1, RSi 2 and RSi TP irons.
Face slots make a club face play “larger,” or more forgiving than it would otherwise without increasing the size of the head. Because of the already large head size of the AeroBurner irons, Face Slots were not needed for the AeroBurner’s design, Bystedt said.
Golfers interested in the AeroBurner irons should expect a ball flight with a slight left bias from the clubs.
