-Better players gain 17 yards, see what you’ll gain
-Speed Pocket in the sole boosts ball speed dramatically for more distance
-Thick-Thin Crown design creates lower CG to promote higher launch for more distance
-Low / forward CG for high launch and low spin
-Lightweight shaft and grip promotes faster swing speed for more distance
-White crown and black face makes alignment easy and eliminates glare on top

The technology in our new RocketBallz fairway woods boosts clubface COR to a place we haven’t come close to before, promoting an immense increase in distance. It’s an absolute breakthrough. – Dr. Benoit Vincent TMag Chief Technical Officer

For the Tour FWY Woods-

-Speed Pocket in the sole boosts ball speed dramatically for more distance
-Thick-Thin Crown design creates lower CG to promote higher launch for more distance
-Exceptionally large, deep face and high-MOI head for easy launch
-Slightly heavier shaft for accuracy and control
-White crown and black face makes alignment easy and eliminates glare on top
-Engineered compact head for a penetrating trajectory and neutral flight bias with heavier/stiffer shaft for more stability

Tour pros and skilled players often reach for their 3-wood on the tee for added control. Those guys will be all over RocketBallz Tour fairways for the extra distance they promote. – Keith Sbarbaro TMag VP Tour Operations

    Taylor made did not purchase Adams, the parent company Adiddas did they all fall under the Acushnet corporation now.

    >Sean O’Hair in the Sony Open is still >playing the R11- What does that tell you?

    It tells me that Taylor Made are paying him a wheelbarrow load to play it … what does it tell you?

    The Adams 3-wood blows this Rocketbalz away. I hit the Adams 245 yards uphill to a par 5 and got on the green in two…never had done anything like that previous…
    Easiest 3-wood I’ve ever hit, it’s deadly long and accurate. TaylorMade is a marketing machine while Adams just keeps making better stuff.

    Just proves again that Adams are on the cutting edge.TM have copied the VST concept without the slot on top. Try both, you’ll be amazed how much better the Adams is

    It’s 44 inches long, right? Basically it’s a Driver.

      Other considerations are that a tank heeatr has the advantage of a place for sediment and residue to lay, while a tankless will let anything get into your fixtures and potentially clog them.Also, if you heat your water with electric, you won’t want to get a tankless heeatr, they are inefficient and inconsistent with their hot water supply. In fact, the plumbing supply house I use refuses to sell electric tankless heeatrs.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.

Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.
