TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour Irons

Posted

Pros: Look great, good distance.

Cons: Little on the large side.

Maybe it's just the clubs that I've had the opportunity to review, but I seem to come to this conclusion a lot: just about anyone can hit theses clubs. I play to a low single-digits handicap, and while there are some things I might change, I very much enjoy TaylorMade's newest offerings.

Remember Nike's old Slingshot irons, or Callaway's Fusion Wide Sole irons? Both of those clubs were made for the highest of high handicappers, and I used to know a few people who gamed them. Those irons weren't great to hit from hairy lies, or even tight lies, but boy oh boy was the feeling of a purely-struck shot off a tee with one of those delightful. That much power should be outlawed.

With the RocketBladez Tour irons, it seems like TaylorMade has brought that feeling to the better-player category. Even with that great performance, I can say with certitude that these irons can be played from just about any lie. Workability-wise, I can do anything with these irons that I could do with any set of irons. They launch high. They land soft.

I'm not exactly sure who these irons aren't for. I could see myself playing these at any point of my golfing life, and I assure you I used to be properly awful. No matter your skill level, if you're in the market for a set of irons, you would be doing yourself a disservice to overlook these irons.
