First look video review: TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons

Golf Monthly Digital Editor Neil Tappin takes a closer look at the new TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons

TaylorMade RocketBladez

TaylorMade has announced the launch of its new RocketBladez Irons, described by company President and CEO Mark King as its biggest innovation to date.

The irons feature pioneering new technology which promotes high launching and long, straight and quick-stopping performance for golfers of all abilities.

RocketBladez' key new technology is its 'Speed Pocket', inspired by TaylorMade's RocketBallz fairway woods and rescue clubs and incorporated into the new irons by TaylorMade engineers.

The 'Speed Pocket' promotes faster ball speed and a higher launch angle,

producing a longer, higher-flying and quicker-stopping shot.

Below, GM's Digital Editor, Neil Tappin, takes a closer look:
