I was wondering if anyone has info on TMs JetSpeed woods. These are replacing RBZ in the line-up, underneath SLDR. I did a search on here and didn't see any previous topics. Yes, I already know .... :worth: . I'm told they are launching mid-December with the new TP CB irons so I'm surprised there isn't more buzz out there.

Just a guess but if they launch mid-December they should be half price by New Years.

Possibly the first time on WRX where the OP starts a Taylormade equipment thread and then acknowledges his thread is worthless.

I literally have zero idea if this is a joke or not.  On one hand, jet speed is just a laughably ridiculous name.  On, the other hand, its TMAG, so nothing would surprise.  CAN I GET A JETSPEEDIER!!!

Interesting thing about this ridiculous name, (even though it hasn't been confirmed as one) it's consistent. For the last few years, every product sent to market by TM has had a name that WRX members have gone thumbs down on. Wouldn't surprise me then, if this latest product, hated name or no, is as successful for TM as all those other poorly named sticks.

I have heard that TM will be releasing a new driver, fairway, and iron in Dec.

Certainly never saw "Jetspeed" coming

Well it's Jack Hamm what do you expect? That man could reach ballspeed equivilant to a jet with a plastic Fisher-Price golf club and a ping pong ball.

I know the name doesn't matter but JetSpeed sounds like they're trying to market to 2nd graders.

You're really surprised that TM would release something new already?

Anyway, I've heard Jetspeed is coming also, along with a 430cc SLDR driver.

Is this true about TMAG needing to "save" their year?  Not doubting you at all, but everyone in this forum who claims to have any TMAG info will tell everyone about how its another great year and they are still on top etc.  However, from what i know from people who sell clubs, TMAG's marketshare has taken a hit, so your info is more in line with what I'd expect.

Releasing something in December will have no impact on this quarter.  Simply not enough time to complete the sale.  But lets not confuse logic with hearsay.

Ok, so does that mean they aren't releasing something in December, that they aren't having a bad year, or literally just that a good december isn't going to impact sales so we shouldn't speculate on what the release means?
