SpeedBlade Irons

Article #


SpeedBlade irons take our Speed Pocket™  to the next level, giving golfers an instrument that will change the nature of their approach shots to help them hit more greens and shoot lower scores. SpeedBlade is radically differently than any other iron in terms of look, speed, launch, spin, feel, sound.

 


Visually, SpeedBlade irons are striking, combining a two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with dark smoke satin ion plating (IP). Internally, the key performance feature that separates SpeedBlade from the pack is the Speed Pocket, a handle-bar shaped slot in the sole of the 3-7 irons that enables a large area of the face to flex and rebound at impact, resulting in faster ball speed, higher launch and better feel.

 


The Speed Pocket performs where golfers need it most. Our research indicates that 72% of shots by 5- to 25-handicappers are impacted below the center of the face, which typically results in low-launching shots of inconsistent distance. The Speed Pocket helps you launch those low-impact shots on a consistently higher, longer carrying and softer-landing flight.

 


The improved Speed Pocket has been widened and lengthened, giving golfers more face area toward the toe and heel that promotes a high launch angle, strong ball flight and a steep, quick stopping descent angle. The Speed Pocket also features a cut through slot internally, which allows for more flex and rebound on the bottom part of the face, making the SpeedBlade iron set the fastest face TaylorMade has ever created, measuring right up to USGA COR limit.

 


Critical to the performance and visual appeal of SpeedBlade irons is their progressive shaping throughout the set. The slender topline and sole in the short irons promote better workability, feel and control. The long irons feature a bigger topline to inspire confidence at address, and have each been optimized to promote phenomenal distance as well as fantastic feel and sound, thanks to the vibration-dampening qualities of the Speed Pocket polymer and multi-material badge.

 


TaylorMade engineers carefully managed the distance-gaps between each SpeedBlade iron by meticulously controlling loft, face thickness, CG location, shaft characteristics, club-length and, most importantly, the behavior of the Speed Pocket. The result is a complete iron set that delivers balanced and consistent gaps between every club. And as drivers, fairway woods and Rescue clubs have evolved to deliver more and more distance, TaylorMade engineers designed SpeedBlade to close the gap between the longest iron and the shortest metalwood in your bag.

      The long irons are straight up the longest most easiest to hit long irons i have ever hit and i have hit everything trust me on this. I have took the hybrids out of my bag. No need to waste range time working on hybrids anymore. The short irons play close in length to about everything else but are very forgiving and look great at address. I love feel and sound of the entire set. I did get fitted and TM delivered my set in just a few days.

            Awesome Irons. They have a solid feel and very forgiving. I was starting to lose a few yards with my previous irons and now with SpeedBlade Irons I have gained the yardage back.

            Really enjoy these clubs. Getting +10 yards distance on some shots. The only reason I'm writing a review is to express my concern for the statement that the irons create meaningful distance gaps between clubs. This might be true for some, but in my game, my 7 iron carries ~180 yards while I can only milk my 6 iron for ~185 on center hits. It's a similar gap between my 4 and 5 iron with the only difference being the trajectory of the shot. Overall, I love the clubs as they provide me with distance off the tee and steep approach shots.

                Worthy of upgrading from RocketBladez

                Best Uses

                • All purpose

                I upgraded from RocketBladez to SpeedBlades; the finish (prevents glare), improved forgiveness on shots near the heel and toe, and improved feel and sound (which is a big part of overall feel) were very noticeable improvements and benefits. The RBladez were great, but TM found a way to tweak a bit more out of this club to make it even more enjoyable.

                I went with DGS300's due to a recommendation from a TM performance lab fitter, and the ball flight is dialed in perfectly for my moderate to fast tempo swing. Nice piercing shots that go long, and then fall softly onto the greens.

                These have a bit higher ball flight with stock shafts when compared to RocketBladez, but going to a stiffer DG300 has produced very similar flights to my last set.

                The only thing I can think of at this point that may be a counterpoint is the durability of the finish. With sand shots, or mishits off the toe, the scratching/blemishing of the finish may become an issue after a few seasons if you are a neat freak with your irons. To me, it's just character, and the finish does an excellent job in preventing glare. The finish is totally a positive aspect for me.

                There are a lot of great clubs out there on the market right now, but you can't go wrong with the TaylorMade SpeedBlades.

                Amazing in every way! Hard to work. So if you love straight and long get these. Less offset which I love. Also irons that I have bend to threes degrees or more thank god.

                Worthy successor to my Burner 2's

                  Replaced my Burner2 with graphite Speedblade, very happy with this decision .
                  New Speedblade's are slightly longer than Burner 2's, more accurate.
                  Speedblades have less offset which I like.
                  Highly recommend, these irons will be as successful as the TM Burners.
