TaylorMade Releases a new set of Irons called Speed Blades, what a surprise

32 posts in this topic

Yesterday Taylormade announced the production of their new "SpeedBlade" iron set.  It comes with all of Taylormade's new technology and gimmicky concepts.  Is anyone else getting tired of new stuff constantly being put out from that company?  I understand that as a company the main objective is to gain income.  I just feel that they are overwhelming the market with clubs that I do not see much difference between. (RBZ 2.0 and SpeedBlade)  Maybe it is just me, I would love to hear all of your opinions regarding Taylormades recently announced new product line.

Seems to me that the "speed pocket" will soon fill up with dirt and crud if used by the average golfer. Kind of negates the benefit if it's jammed up with crud.

LOL!

I just think they should stop calling anything "____ bladez" especially if it looks far from it.

Dude, with a stiff enough shaft and a little attention to good technique, no one needs to resort to the Blueballz.

Use the speed slot to relieve the blueballz.

TaylorMade just marketing for gimmick profit. Go a yardsale and pick up some real clubs. They are just trying to make old technology new for 10 times the price! !

They wouldn't keep churning them out if people didn't keep buying them! Can't blame the company, boys like toys, I think their equipment is of the same quality as any of the other big brands, don't particularly like the look of these, or the rocketballs, but I think they got a good look with the rocketbladez! Also not keen on the names of any of these products though, unfortunately they go way over the top on marketing instead of letting a products results speak for itself, which puts some golfers off, you'd never catch titleist calling their new clubs.. MegaWhackers!

Not for me. Looks like they're designed for the poor ball striker. Basically, if you skull it, you'll hit the sweet spot. :blink:

I've got the RocketBladez Tour and that didn't happen to me. The polymer is very nearly flush to the sole.

Here you go. I like these becasue they look like the Burner 2.0's with the black finish which in my humble newbie opinion are the prettiest irons ever. http://golfweek.com/photos/galleries/2013/sep/10/taylormade-speedblade-irons-photos/21927/

    • For the average golfer, getting a driver "that won't hurt your game" is critical. Getting fitted forces you to take a look at what really works, rather than what you think works. As for tech, a lot of it has been incremental change, with an occasional tech bubble that may or may not take off. Depends on when "recent" starts.... 2004: TM R7 driver features adjustable weights in the head to help shape ball flight. 2008: Muzuno MP600 driver features "fast  track" slots in the sole that let you move weighted screws to left or right. It was going on clearance about the time I got fitted for my Callaway HyperX Tour driver. 2012: TM goes with "loft up" ... touting high-launch, low-spin drivers as the route to exceptional distance. Several OEMs start making mini-drivers. TM also adds SLDR and Jetspeed drivers. 2015: "Turbulators," small fins in the crown of the Ping G30 drivers that promise better wind flow over the head. 2017: The Callaway Epic driver with "jailbreak" technology: two metal posts behind the clubface that promise better power transfer through the ball, and a gain of about 10 yards... It depends on how much the technology is new, and how much it is recycled from a few years back. And so we haven't forgotten, parting wisdom from above...  
    • He must have been very messed up or the authorities would not have arrested him.  Why was he driving in that state? Where was Notah to look out and take his keys? Imo he must have been way messed up. .09 breathalyzer or something and a minor infraction like a rolling stop and there's no way he's arrested unless he is not well liked anyway in that area.  
    • I'm just saying, I don't understand why cheating 'scandals' are scandals. I love my wife, I don't cheat on her, but that doesn't mean I don't 'want' beautiful women I meet. Perhaps it's a difference in views, or a different in age that gives us a different outlook, but like I said, when I was young, we couldn't wait for away games to leave the gf's behind. If you think Tiger is the only married womanizer on tour, i'm almost positive you would be sorely mistaken. Superstars live a different set of rules than us, and Golfers are held to this higher moral standard than any other athlete, it's ridiculous. (I'm not talking about golf rules, i'm talking personal life). Having been born with an abundance of talent does not mean you need to be a rolemodel, Athletes are the LAST people we should pick as role models, because a majority of them are just like Tiger.    Had this been Jordan in the early 90's, either this, or the cheating scandal, it would have been a non-issue as long as he scored 30 points a game. But the press hushed things up for Jordan (his gambling, cheating, and partying were well known), because he was just that good. But from Tiger we expect more, just because it's golf. I don't get it. He was as human as the rest of us before his fall, and he still is today. I don't get riled up about an athlete doing something stupid, because I know what it's like to be just a university athlete, so I can't imagine what its like to be a superstar and avoid all these things, on the road constantly, women throwing themselves at you, women willing to jump in bed with other women with you because of who you are. It would be hard for any mortal man not to fall in that trap. 
    • Hi. I'm looking for some advice. I have played a set of mizuno mp 52s for the last year fitted with DG SL r300 shafts. Over the last 5 or 6 rounds I have noticed that my normal high ball flight has now started to land with moon dust on my ball it's going that high and I'm losing nearly a clubs distance. The main prob is I'm hitting the ball better than ever. I'm not a long hitter, my 7 iron is 140 yards with a good strike. My last round I was constantly coming up at least a club short.getting really frustrated playing well but constantly leaving myself 20 foot putts for birdie/par. I've decided to try reshaft have my irons with DG s300 shafts in an attempt to try and bring down the ball flight a bit. I've hit stiff flex before and not noticed any loss in distance and accuracy. As I only play 5-pw and the set of s300 shafts I've bought are 4-pw im wondering whether it might be an idea to soft step them. I'm asking because I'm always reading it's best to play the softest flex possible. Does soft stepping make much of a difference? Would it make them a firm flex?  Any advice/experience appreciated.
    • I'll echo what @iacas said, I believe that everyone who plays reasonably serious golf should have the rules with them, in some form.  I've been a member of the USGA for a good while now, and one o the good things about membership is the brand new RoG that I get every spring.  Anyway, you got the right response above.  I actually had a fox steal MY ball a couple weeks ago, in plain sight, and we all knew the rule in our group.
