After testing the Aeroburner 3-wood and hybrid clubs earlier in the year on my trip down to Kent, I was looking forward to putting the driver through its paces in the somewhat warmer, sunnier climate of Ontario, Canada, playing over seven very different courses. As most of you know I am a bit of a traditionalist and still own some of my old persimmion drivers and 3-woods, but I do like the design of the new TaylorMade range, both the R15 – which I have been playing all summer – and the Aeroburner. Both sit behind the ball perfectly and not only look powerful but back that up with the way they play on the course.
There are several new technologies that have gone into the Aeroburner but there are three noticeable technologies that are apparent to the eye. Firstly, the fin on the hosel, this is there to reduce drag during your swing helping with the aerodynamics of the club and like a formula one car the reduction in drag will give you more speed at impact.
The second is the raised crown, again this works with the hosel fin to reduce drag and helps airflow similar to what the cycle sprint races have on their helmets, again all this helping your swing speed into the ball.
The third is the speed pocket on the sole of the club, this is there to increase the size of the sweet spot and reduce spin on the ball. This benefits both high and lower handicapped players. With a high handicapped player who is fighting a slice/hook any reduction in sidespin is going to help. For the lower handicapped player it means that you have more control when trying to play a fade or draw and not have them suddenly turn into a hook or slice.
Firstly I loved playing with the Aeroburner driver and it's no wonder there is a split in the professional ranks between the R15 and Aeroburner drivers. I loved the sound at impact, it really sounded meaty and the ball flight and control I had made it a winner with a lot of my playing partners who all wanted to try it out – all with favourable comments and results.
And when my playing partners want to try a club I am testing with comments of “I have to get me one of those” I think that tells you all you need to know. The Aeroburner driver comes highly recommended from them as well as myself and one I would make sure you put on your testing list.
