The TaylorMade AeroBurner fairway wood and hybrid will debut in early 2015 alongside the new AeroBurner driver and R15 woods.

According to TaylorMade, the AeroBurner 3-wood has the strongest face in golf, something needed to support a new speed pocket - its stand-out feature.

This cavity - positioned on the sole of the club - extends further into the fairway than before, allowing more of the face to flex.

This serves to increase both the sweet spot and ball speed, with TaylorMade also citing lower spin as a by-product.

In fact, the AeroBurner's sweet spot is twice as large as the equivalent area on the JetSpeed fairway wood.

The end result of the above advancements is increased distance from both the fairway - a principle construction aim - and the tee.

What's more, the TaylorMade AeroBurner fairway wood comes in an aerodynamic shape - a produce of the shallow face, raised crown and a new hosel fin, which purports to reduce drag created by the hosel.

The 170-cc head comes in a matte-white finish, with a black PVD face and, like the Aeroburner driver, a crown graphic to help with alignment.

The AeroBurner fairway is available in 3, 3 HL, 5, 5 HL and 7 models, which all retail at £199.

Like the AeroBurner driver, R15 driver and R15 fairway and rescue, it will go on sale on January 9, 2015.

The AeroBurner rescue, meanwhile, also boasts an aerodynamic shape, a new speed pocket and the same graphics (below).

It is available in 3, 4, 5 and 6 versions, also from January 9, and comes with an RRP of £159.
