TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue
TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue
Made for Speed.
The name “AeroBurner” derives from the product’s advanced aerodynamics, a performance variable that TaylorMade researchers and developers have long obsessed over in their quest to engineer fast driver heads. To accomplish this, AeroBurner metalwoods feature an “Aero hosel,” (small fin located at the heel of the club to reduce drag) a raised center crown and rounded toe section. All three of these variables work as a system to improve aerodynamics and lower drag force. Additionally, the AeroBurner family has the largest Speed Pocket ever, which enhances the sweet spot and protects ball speed on mishits.
- Speed Pocket
- The rescue's biggest advancement is its new Speed Pocket which is twice as big as the JetSpeed (first rescue to feature the technology). Unlike JetSpeed, AeroBurner fairways do not have loft sleeve technology which offers loft and lie adjustability. This allowed company engineers to extend the length of the Speed Pocket across the entire sole for maximum performance. In other words, this pocket increases the size of the sweet spot and reduces spin.
- Aerodynamic Face
- The AeroBurner rescue uses the highest strength face material (Ni-Co 300 Superalloy), precision cast crown with TaylorMade's Thick-Thin crown technology, and a shallow face to increase launch and spin.
- Shorter Shaft
- The overall length of the shaft has been shortened by half an inch from previous rescue offerings to provide more playability and forgiveness.
- Standard Shaft: Matrix Speed RUL-Z 70
- Standard Grip: Speed Rubber Grip
TaylorMade AeroBurner Hybrid Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
The Burner name is back this year with the all new AeroBurner lineup. With its aerodynamic features, the AeroBurner is all about speed, and from my testing I believe it! For those that enjoyed the White colorway, it’s back for 2015, which looks great when the ball is framed up against the all-black face. Head size is on the thin side, but not by much. This version sits slightly closed to my eye, and has a much lighter, slightly longer shaft compared to the TP version.
Who's It For?
Like distance from a Hybrid? The AeroBurner will be on the top of the list when it comes to distance. I found this to have a nice and high penetrating flight that carries really well. This version has a bit more draw bias, which will help those that need it.
The non-TP version does not fit my game nearly as well as the TP version that I just bagged. It still feels solid with a nice clean sound, launches plenty high with a moderate spin rate, and is an ease to swing. The club gives you the feeling that the ball is jumping off the face at times, which is a sensational feeling and one that you cannot get enough of. Either of the two AeroBurner models need to be on your list of must try and quite possibly, must buy.
