The Burner name is back this year with the all new AeroBurner lineup. Like the driver and fairway version, the TP hybrid model offers a flatter lie angle, a fade-biased face, shorter length, and an upgraded shaft. With its aerodynamic features, the AeroBurner is all about speed, and from my testing I believe it! Also the white colorway is back for 2015, which looks great when the ball is framed up against the all-black face. Size-wise, the AeroBurner TP is slightly thinner looking than other hybrids currently on the market.
Who’s it for?
The AeroBurner TP, because of the flatter lie angle and slightly open clubface, is mainly for those that tend to hook hybrids off the map. Any handicap range that fights a hook should have a look at this model.
Final Take – Gom’s Pick
First off, this thing is long…Like, wow long! The jump from this head is something else. The feel is really solid and without the slight harshness that I got from the fairway head. To me, the ball sort of had a spring like feeling off the face. The ball flight is high and flat, and more like an optimal flight for a driver than a hybrid. I quickly put an 18 degree into my bag and so far so good. My only concern to date is that my mishits on the toe can be really snappy. Both AeroBurner models are a must try.

I have many of the same issues that the reviewer has with hybrids with hooking the ball. I was interested to learn of the upright bias of hybrids that I was not aware of which can be a factor in hooking the ball. While I don’t feel that I am quite as strong a player as the reviewer, I would like a hybrid that does not have a draw bias, but will still give me additional distant with good height on the ball flight. From the reviews, the Taylormade Aeroburner TP sounds like the club I am looking for. I am anxious to test it and see if this is the one! Thank you for the fairly comprehensive review of the clubs.
Doug, I suggest looking at the different OEM’s specs on their lie angles as a starting point. Next, those with any features or adjustments that can create a fade bias. Put those together to help narrow down the choices and go swing em like an iron. I would look at the R15 for a true fade bias over the Aeroburner if that is the most important feature that you seek from a hybrid.
