Ever since Sean O'Hair used a prototype TaylorMade iron, golfers have wondered when the new club would become available.

TaylorMade's King makes the case that the TaylorMade RocketBladez Irons could change the way tour players view irons, that the potential distance advantage could lead to a paradigm shift among elite players, the vast majority of whom still prefer smaller, rigid-faced muscleback blade type irons.

Instead, the belief is that if tour players would switch to this new iron technology, you could see meaningful statistical improvements that begins with iron play and could run all the way through to scoring average.

In part driven by improved performance in drivers, fairway woods and hybrids, the intent in the RocketBladez design was to get the performance of longer and middle irons to close the widening gap between the shortest metalwood and the first iron in a player's set.

For example, if a better, faster 3-iron can close the gap between the previous cheap r11 irons and the now longer hybrid club, then it could mean that the 4-iron could then cover the distance that a 3-iron previously flew, and so on, leading to more shots to the green with shorter, higher lofted and easier to hit irons.

In other words, players could be hitting 7-irons to the green instead of 6-irons, and since elite players are more accurate with 7-irons than 6-irons, there could be an increase in their proximity to the hole. Closer to the hole could lead to an increase in birdie potential, and thus improved scoring.

As an example, the PGA Tour percentage of putts made doubles for putts from 20-25 feet versus putts over 25 feet. It is the same principle that you know and love from the TaylorMade R1 Fairway Wood, but this is the first time it has been put into an iron. TaylorMade want to be the number one distance iron and this is right in that category as it is all about ball speed.
