TaylorMade is set to launch its new RocketBallz line on February 3. Once we stopped laughing at the ridiculous name and got down to business, we were able to take a serious look at the clubs so we could report to our readers (though we still giggle a little every time we have to type or say the word RocketBallz.)
The Rocketballz driver is engineered with Flight Control Technology which allows the ability to fine tune face angle and loft. Its speed enhancing aerodyamic reduces wind resistance and its Inverted Cone clubface technology promotes ball speed even on off-center shots. The Rocketballz driver has a lightweight shaft and grip and the black and white face makes alignment easier.
TaylorMade claims the new RBZ Max Irons are “lighter, longer and loaded to push your limits on the course.” They are made from metalwood, creating fast-flexing faces. The COR is up to the USGA limit and affords users higher ball speed and distance and its high MOI make it easier to launch balls. The faces on these irons are ultra thin and the draw-biased structure aim for longer distance and the elimination of slicing. The shafts are constructed of Matrix Program graphite, making the long irons easier to launch and the KBS Satin Steel shafts help with accuracy and control in mid to short irons.
