The Golf Monthly test team's TaylorMade AeroBurner irons review, a set designed for distance and forgiveness through its size and technology

TaylorMade AeroBurner irons review

 

Key Technology Replacing last year’s SpeedBlade model, the AeroBurner irons go right up to the COR limits for maximum ball speed and have a low centre of gravity for a higher launch. The high-MOI cavity-back head design also allows weight to be moved to the perimeter where it increases performance on mishits.

TaylorMade’s Speed Pocket features in the 4-7 irons, offering higher launch and faster ball speeds on strikes low off the face. At address, a longer blade length, thicker top line and more offset helps to inspire confidence.

Shaft options REAX 88g high launch steel or REAX 60g graphite in 4-SW.

Will suit Golfers seeking an iron that inspires confidence at address, offers plenty of help on mishits and maximum distance.

GM Verdict After hitting a few shots with the AeroBurner irons it’s clear they excel in distance and forgiveness. Whichever way you look at them, they’re large in size, which is perfect if you’re struggling with your iron play and need a quick injection of confidence.The thick topline, wide sole and length from heel-to-toe combine to make them one of the easiest irons to hit on the market.

At impact, the feel is incredibly hot, much like a hybrid, offering a mid-to-high flight. The technology in the head is boosted by some of the lowest lofts on the market too, making above average distance easy to come by even when you don’t quite catch the ball cleanly. The darker finish has a premium look to it and certainly helps to reduce sun glare.
