Look out for TaylorMade's new AeroBurner. A matte white coloured driver, fairway and rescue trio that feature an improved Speed Pocket and advanced aerodynamics to promote effortless distance.
New from TaylorMade, the AeroBurner range – a matte white coloured driver, fairway and rescue club trio that feature an improved Speed Pocket and advanced aerodynamics to promote effortless distance.
The name 'AeroBurner' derives from the product’s advanced aerodynamics. AeroBurner metalwoods feature an 'Aero hosel' (small fin located at the heel of the club to reduce drag) a raised centre crown and rounded toe section. All three of these variables work as a system to improve aerodynamics and lower drag force.
The AeroBurner family also has the largest Speed Pocket ever, which enhances the sweet spot and protects ball speed on mishits.
The driver features a new matte white pearl paint and uses a black PVD face to provide contrast and help in alignment.
The driver’s biggest advancement is its new Speed Pocket which is twice as big as the JetSpeed (which was the first driver to feature the technology). However, unlike JetSpeed, AeroBurner drivers do not have loft sleeve technology which offers loft and lie adjustability. This has allowed TM to extend the length of the Speed Pocket across the entire sole for maximum performance.
The AeroBurner driver also features Inverted Cone, a technology used in every TaylorMade driver since the R500 Series in 2002. The Inverted Cone milled into the inner side of the clubface promotes higher ball speed on off-centre hits.
Finally, the AeroBurner driver features an ultra-light 50-gram Matrix Speed Rul-Z shaft. The longer, lighter shaft and light grip adds up to less than 300 grams of total club weight, promoting faster swing speed.
Fairways and Rescue clubs
Both the fairways and rescues feature the largest Speed Pocket in combination with an extremely low and forward centre of gravity (CG).
The AeroBurner fairway combines the size of the RocketBallz fairway channel with the technology of the through slot of the JetSpeed fairway to produce an ultimate Speed Pocket. Compared to the original RocketBallz, the AeroBurner has a face size that is 2.5mm shallower for better playability from the turf. The AeroBurner also has a 2x larger sweet spot (COR) compared to JetSpeed.
The AeroBurner 3-wood is equipped with a Matrix Speed RUL-Z 60 (X, S, R flexes) measuring at 43.25” (USGA length measurement method). The overall length has been shortened from previous fairway offerings to increase its playability while maintaining the speed from new head advancements.
AeroBurner Rescue club
The AeroBurner Rescue club also has a larger Speed Pocket. Like the driver and fairway wood, it has the same white crown with black contrasting face, and crown alignment features to help with accuracy and consistency needed for hybrid clubs. AeroBurner Rescues are equipped with Matrix RUL-Z 70 variant, which is slightly heavier to approach steel shaft weights, and fit better in iron flow sets. The overall club length has been shortened by ½” from the previous JetSpeed Rescue clubs to provide more playability and forgiveness.
AeroBurner fairways and rescues share the following:
· Ultra-high strength, Ni-Co 300 Superalloy Steel
· The largest Open Channel Speed Pocket
· Precision-cast crowns with our Thick-Thin crown technology
· Shallow face and low-and-forward CG location with refined crown curvature and sole camber
TaylorMade also offers Tour Preferred (TP) versions for its AeroBurner family of metalwoods. The driver has a longer .335 hosel to allow for a wide range of TP shaft offerings. Its stock offering is the new Matrix Ozik 6X4 White Tie shaft.
Both the AeroBurner TP fairway and Rescue club sit 2˚ flatter and 1˚ more open to suit the eye of the better player. The TP fairway has a smaller footprint (better workability) and a deeper face (better off tee) and is equipped with a Matrix Ozik 7X4 White Tie shaft, while the Rescue features a Matrix Ozik HX4 White Tie shaft.
Ladies Shaft Options
A ladies Matrix Speed RUL-Z 45 shaft is available in the driver, while the fairway will have a Matrix Speed RUL-Z 50, with a Matrix Speed RUL-Z 55 in the Rescue club.
