The Speed Pocket Makes Them Long
JetSpeed fairway woods and Rescue™ clubs each incorporate a radically redesigned Speed Pocket that’s smaller and accounts for less weight while remaining just as efficient at boosting the speed of the clubface. Think of it as an afterburner for your ball. Unlike the Speed Pockets in our previous fairways and Rescues, which were empty, JetSpeed’s is filled with polymer to keep debris out and absorb unwanted vibration without slowing down the clubface.
The weight saved by the new Speed Pocket design is redistributed strategically within the clubhead to move the CG lower and forward, the location that TaylorMade has proven promotes fast ball speed and low spin. TaylorMade’s robot testing indicates that JetSpeed fairways and Rescue clubs reduce spin compared to RBZ Stage 2 to promote more distance. JetSpeed fairways reduce spin by 200-300 RPM compared to RBZ Stage 2 to promote more distance.*
The redesigned Speed Pocket also allowed TaylorMade engineers to make the face shallower while still maintaining the same high speed as RBZ Stage 2 fairways and Rescues. The JetSpeed 3-wood’s face is shallower than the RBZ Stage 2 3-wood (by 2 millimeters), bringing the CG in lower in relation to the center of the face to make it easier to launch on a high angle. Plus, it gives JetSpeed fairways and Rescues an especially sleek and stealthy appearance, like an F-22 Raptor ready for takeoff.
JetSpeed fairway woods and Rescue clubs offer a tremendous combination of distance and ease of launch, and JetSpeed fairways are the longest and most playable fairway woods we’ve ever created, exceeding RBZ Stage 2.*
Although the low-profile construction of JetSpeed fairways and Rescues makes for a smaller head volume (a JetSpeed 3-wood is 175cc compared to RBZ Stage 2 at 190cc), the size of the address footprint of the JetSpeed and RBZ Stage 2 heads is nearly the same. That’s critical, because a substantial address footprint is essential to building confidence.
All JetSpeed metalwood clubfaces (driver, fairways and Rescues) are made of JetSteel of an ultra-strong steel alloy that adds to the speed of the face. JetSpeed Rescue clubs are equipped with Matrix’s Velox T shaft, with the weight determined by shaft flex: S / 75 grams, R / 65, M / 55, L / 45. Varying the shaft weight by flex promotes the optimum combination of clubhead speed and clubhead control no matter how fast you swing. Five lofts: 2 – 17°, 3 – 19°, 4 – 22°, 5 – 25°, 6 – 28°
