The TaylorMade AeroBurner driver - a non-adjustable model designed for the those with a limited interest in the technical side of golf equipment - has been unveiled.
According to TaylorMade, the AeroBurner is the brand's 'fastest and most aerodynamic' driver to date.
The key innovation is a new speed pocket that extends deeper into the club, increasing the size of the sweet spot and producing higher ball speeds.
This slot technology is also accompanied by a high-strength flexing club face.
In addition, A 'speed pocket insert' - a flexible debris cover - ensures unwanted mud and grit doesn't find its way into the slot.
TaylorMade engineers have worked to ensure the 460-cc head is as aerodynamic as possible.
As such, the AeroBurner driver sports a rounder toe, raised centre crown and a new hosel fin (below), which is designed to reduce the drag caused by the hosel.
It comes in a matte-white finish with a PVD face and an Aeroburner crown graphic to aid alignment.

Available lofts: 9.5, 10.5, 12 degrees, plus a high-launch version RRP - £269 On sale - January 9, 2015
