TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons
Product of the Week, January 14, 2013

TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons

The RocketBladez irons have a large cavity behind their stainless steel faces that lowers the center of gravity and pulls it farther away from the face, making them forgiving and high-flying. That’s not new. What is new is a 2-milimeter-wide slot in the sole of the 3- through 7-irons that’s covered with polyurethane to help quiet vibration while keeping debris out. The company is calling it a ‘Speed Pocket’ and says the slot allows the unsupported, 1.6mm thick face to move and flex more easily at impact, especially on shots hit low in the face.
The by-product of these design innovations is COR numbers that are on par with a driver, faster ball speeds and more consistent flight on off-center hits. According to TaylorMade designers, the slot and the added face flex will cause the ball to launch higher, fly 2-5 yards farther and land on a steeper angle of descent so it stops more easily. This performance might equate to the distance of a 6-iron with the launch angle of a 7-iron, and so on through the set. The RBladez have a notch on the rear side of the hosel to make it easier to change the lofts and lie angles for custom fitting.

$799 steel / $899 “RocketFuel” graphite
