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

Recommended Posts

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.

Looks like a blue version of Rocketballz. Blueballz?

LOL!

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

Blueballz Irons are definitely something I'll be gaming come Christmas 2013!

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:

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.

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

Hey, that gives me a great idea for a new wedge design. WedgieBallz!

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/

    • I have old and new sets. I mostly play my Mizuno MP-67's - about 10 years old. My Miura MC102's - about 6 years old. My Pinc ISI BeNi's - about 20+ years old... sometimes my Eye 2 BeCu's as well and they are 25+ years old!  
    • Flighting, as @iacas pointed out, is another very good technique to take distance off of a full swing distance. I use the shorter backswing/shorter follow through method. Because I find it's simpler... I struggle with flighting. If I want to hit a lower shot, I take more club with less swing. I get what you mean by decelerating though with 3/4 swings. Sometimes it happens to me, and I bottom out too soon, and there you go chunky monkey. My swing thought for those of you who use the shorter swing method (primarily with wedges), is keep your downswing the same tempo as if you were hitting a full shot.  That's just my thought, remember I'm not a pro, and I surely don't claim to be.
    • It's his business what he does or doens't do.  You can encourage his interest, or just stay out of it. I'd absolutely decline the request to teach him and just tell him if he's going to do this, he should get lessons. as for the other thing, he wants to bond with you on this.....I'd just say you like playing 'good' golf with players of similar skills.  So if he wants this hobby to turn into a 'bro' thing, he has to take lessons and get nice gear and be good enough to enjoy the same course difficulty you do.  And you're happy to wait for that, but shouldn't plan to play a lot with you until then. It's not your business what he does it is your business if he wants to do this to be buds with (but only that aspect) It's a HARD transition to go from work focus to retirement - this might be a great thing for this guy
    • School play grounds, when empty of people, and is allowed is a good place to get distances. Myself, I use a dry lake bed  get my carry distances. Roll out after the carry is at the mercy of the course conditions. Uphill, down hill, flat, fast, or slow.  After a while, the golfer, from previous expirience, will know what club to pull for the shot at hand. He may not know the actual distance, but will know which club to use.  I have a personal, mental quirk when it comes to distances. If I see a 7i, full swing distance, I pull a 6i. I always take one extra club to allow for my not so perfect club/ball contact. This has served me quite well over the years. 
    • Nice!!!  I did that with a set of Pings.  Found an Old leather Ping bag from the 80's, added in a whole set of steel eye 2's (2 - SW), found a 1,3 & 5 eye 2 woods and then after tons of searching, found an eye 2 putter.  A complete era correct eye 2 set!  Hangs on the wall in my golf room.  Took it out once to play and had some old school fun that day.
