Some manufacturers do not reveal or emphasize the compression ratings of new golf balls. Some models are now designed and marketed to fit and appeal to a golfers preferences for price, distance, spin, feel and control.

The Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft Golf Ball retails for $22,99 a dozen (MSRP) and it’s engineered for a soft feel, speed and distance. Truth be told, there are not so many golf balls out there that take off the clubface as softly and swiftly as the AeroBurner-Soft. This baby is not just a super soft two pieces golf ball, but it is quite incredible around the greens and it will make you reconsider the notion of long distance. The Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft is built around the company’s proprietary high energy REACT core, which works like a trampoline of sorts, i.e. it stores then releases energy with incredible efficiency. The long carry of the Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft Golf Ball comes from its LDP 342 High Lift Low Drag dimple pattern, which sustains ball flight and promotes a high-launch trajectory. The philosophy behind the Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft is to create a core using a soft compound for allowing easy compression even for players with slower swing speeds, thus to promote ball speed for acquiring extra distance. The Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft features a state of the art Iothane cover which works together with the low drag 342 dimple pattern for promoting the sticky/soft touch which is a must have ingredient for excellent greenside performance.
The Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft is actually the company’s softest golf ball, being created specifically for players with slower swing speeds who are looking for a ball which is easy to compress. This baby combines the distance and the speed off the tee that we all know and love with soft greenside stopping power and that’s pretty rare in a golf ball. Basically, the Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft is a true blue distance ball that actually stops when required, being a real par saver by any metrics. Keep in mind that the Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft will not be a good choice for golfers in the 100+ miles per hour swing speed range. At those swing speeds, this golf ball will feel like it was designed by Lockheed Martin’s Research and Development team. When used with long irons, the Taylormade AeroBurner-Soft will really prove its worth. So, you should definitely try them, as they’re more than adequate golf balls if not superstars, and you’ll have a hard time finding a golf ball that compresses as much in its class.
