The SpeedBlade irons have a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin ion plating that looks great.
More importantly than the finish these irons feature a newly engineered speed pocket, a handle-bar shaped slot in the sole of the 3-7 irons that enables a large area of the face to flex and rebound at impact, resulting in faster ball speed, higher launch and better feel.
TMag’s research indicated that 72% of shots by 5- to 25-handicappers are impacted below the center of the face, which typically results in low-launching shots of inconsistent distance.
Perfectly acceptable forgiveness but doesn’t blow away all testers; not quite as long as a few guys expect; it’s minor, but SpeedBlade makes it a bit harder to keep shots low than some others do
The Speed Pocket has been widened and lengthened; giving golfers more face area towards the heel and toe for added forgiveness.
The Speed Pocket polymer also provides vibration-dampening qualities. This creates a better feel and sound on impact with the ball.
TaylorMade iron engineers have tried to close the distance gap between a golfers longest iron and shortest wood in their bag by redistributed the weight to a lower central location.
This low centre of gravity promotes the most desirable launch conditions and delivers consistent gaps between every club.
The club head combines a two-tone satin nickel chrome plating with a dark smoke satin ion plating to give a striking look and also has progressive shaping throughout the set.
The shorter irons feature a slender topline and sole to create better feel and control, whilst the longer irons inspire confidence at address with an increased topline size.
