TAYLORMADE has unveiled its striking new AeroBurner family of metalwoods comprising AeroBurner fairway woods, AeroBurner driver and AeroBurner rescue.
Following a chat with our friends at TaylorMade last week, we undersand the AeroBurner products are aimed at the ‘attitude’ consumer (i.e. somebody who wants to ‘grip it n rip it’) who doesn’t want to delve too much into the technical build aspects of a golf club and who doesn’t want to adjust the settings on their metalwoods.
For those that would rather 'tinker', there's the option of the TaylorMade R15 family of metalwoods that were also unveiled today.
TaylorMade AeroBurner fairway woods
Featuring driver-like launch conditions off the deck, the AeroBurner fairway woods feature a new aerodynamic shape with a shallow face, raised crown and new hosel fin.
A new open channel Speed Pocket design creates a stronger face flex, increases the size of the sweet spot and reduces spin. To ensure no debris gets trapped in the open channel, a Speed Pocket insert,essentially a flexible debris cover, is used.
TaylorMade says the AeroBurner fairway wood has an expanded COR Zone that gives it twice as large a sweetspot and makes it twice as flexible as the company's former JetSpeed fairway wood.
On first look at the 170cc head, there's a new matte white finish to the crown, black PVD face and the crown graphic appears to make alignment easy.
