Golf Australia Express : October 2013 - United Colours of Golf
V ISUALLY, the SpeedBlade iron is striking, combining a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin ion plating. In other words, we reckon it looks pretty cool. TaylorMade's latest game- improvement iron's most telling feature is what the company calls its 'Speed Pocket'—a handle-bar shaped slot in the sole of the 3-7 irons that helps increase the trampoline effect at impact. That results in faster ball speeds, higher launch and better feel. We haven't got our hands on these game-changers as yet, but we're told by TM that the new SpeedBlade 6-iron travelled just under 10 yards further and with a 4 per cent higher peak trajectory than its Tour Burner iron in testing. The SpeedBlade also combines a low centre of gravity with bigger sweet spot for forgiveness on off- centre hits. Just don't blade it.
