Information on TaylorMade Aeroburner woods:
The TaylorMade Aeroburner driver will sit alongside TaylorMade R15 woods as a driver for golfers who aren’t too fussed about delving into the technical aspects of their clubs.
The headline changes from the TaylorMade JetSpeed driver it replaces are new aerodynamic features that improve clubhead speed, and a new Speed Pocket that enlarges the size of the sweet spot.
The new Speed Pockets flexes more at impact, resulting in a sweet spot that’s bigger to help protect ball speeds on mishits and reduces spin for added forgiveness. The new Speed Pockets also features a red insert that keeps debris out, without affecting performance.
An Aero hosel – small fins located at the rear of the hosel – also works alongside the raised centre crowns and rounded toe sections to lower drag and increase clubhead speed for longer distance.
The 460cc driver features a matte-white finish, black PVD face, crown graphic that makes alignment easy, and a Matrix shaft and Lamkin UTx grip.
The TaylorMade Aeroburner driver comes in 9.5˚, 10.5˚, 12˚ and HL (high loft) options, while the TP driver comes in 9.5˚ and 10.5˚ only.
