TaylorMade JetSpeed - And yet another line of woods for TM

135 posts in this topic

And Taylormade does is again. Year after year, another new driver was unveiled and this time it's called the Jetspeed that may replace the RBZ Stage 2 line up. They put in a more pronounced "speed slot" compared to the SLDR for this line that say will decrease the spin compared to the RBZ.

The first time I saw the pictures I assumed they were for women, with the grey and light blue colors.

I'm still having trouble believing that they'll actually release this. Not that I think it's a bad driver or anything, but the frequency at which they release new woods is ridiculous.

I saw this and clicked on it to see the joke. When I saw the picture and realized this is real and I almost cryed laughing.

I can't even keep all the models straight anymore. My local golfsmith sells about 4 or 5 different TM drivers still.

I thought the same when they announced the "Rocketballz" line of driver. So seeing the name "Jetspeed" isn't surprising, but doesn't stop it from sounding completely stupid.

That could be TM's marketing design: To saturate the golf shop space with as many TM models as they can. Considering how much they've released so far, it's probably a pressure to the R&D; by marketing to release the "newest" gimmick to the masses.

Looks like they're trying to beat Alien Golf and Orlimar to the punch by releasing their own knockoffs but with a quicker turnaround.

Just studied the pic. Looks incredibly aerodynamic if you swing it backwards.

Quote:

The new JetSpeed line of woods (driver, fairway woods, hybrids) from TaylorMade will replace the existing RBZ Stage 2 woods in December. The JetSpeed ($299) is the first driver to feature TaylorMade's Speed Pocket technology, which is aimed at reducing spin and increasing speed and distance on shots struck low on the clubface. In addition a low, forward CG location produces significantly faster ballspeeds than RBZ and RBZ Stage 2 drivers on shots struck 1/2" high or low on the face. A twelve-position loft sleeve allows for full adjustability while a 46" lightweight shaft (49g) further contributes to increased clubhead speed and overall distance.

JetSpeed fairway woods ($229) also feature Speed Pocket technology to produce greater clubface flexibility and faster ballspeeds. Considered by TaylorMade reps to be "the longest, most playable fairway woods ever," JetSpeed fairways will be available in 15-, 17-, 19-, 21-, and 23-degree models but will not offer hosel adjustability.

JetSpeed hybrids ($199) feature many of the same design elements as the fairway woods and will be available in 16-, 19-, 22-, 25-, and 28-degree models.

It will probably be called "RocketJetBaldezTour Preferred. "

If they are supposedly increasing speed, why would you pick a name that's slower than a rocket? I thought a rocket > jet? Should have called is "Lightspeed" and then people will start calling it their "Light Saber" and then Disney will find out and file a "TM" infringement lawsuit.

I was thinking the same thing. I also find it hard to buy TM products knowing something new is going to be released in the very near future.

Also, a lot of their technology is recycled and refined technology from other club makers. I think their speed slot is an adaptation from Adam's Tight Lies wood and/or Nike's Compression Channel. Their sliding weight is refined from the Mizuno MP630 driver.  I feel like they look at other club maker's adapted ideas and find ways to make it better. I don't think TM's R&D; department revolutionizes - they glorify.
