The new SpeedBlade irons from TaylorMade are designed to launch the ball high and far. They feature input from the brand’s wood designers.

An innovative “Speed Pocket” in the longer irons (3-7) allows the face to flex at impact and increase ball speed and launch angle for distance.

The SpeedBlade Iron was created with input from TaylorMade’s wood engineers and is designed in a similar way, with a fast face, a low centre of gravity to increase shot height as well as Inverted Cone face technology, which improves forgiveness.

Visually, the iron is striking thanks to a two-tone, satin-nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin.

Each head has been individually designed and shaped progressively to optimise flight, distance and spin throughout the set.

In the short irons, the toplines are slender, while the longer clubs feature more width for confidence and forgiveness.

TaylorMade have created three wedges to complement the set, in lofts of 50, 55 & 60˚.

They feature classic head shapes, a dark grey finish, and TaylorMade’s innovative ATV (all terrain versatility) sole, which, as the name suggests, makes the club ideal from any type of lie.

“The Speed Pocket performs where golfers need it most,” said TaylorMade’s Brian Bazzel.

“Our research indicates that 72 per cent of shots by 5-25 handicap golfers are impacted below the centre of the face.

“That typically results in low-launching shots of inconsistent distance.

“The Speed Pocket helps you launch those low-impact shots on a consistently higher, longer carrying and softer-landing flight.”
