    TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue Golf Club Review

    The TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue is based on a very similar concept/design as its siblings (the AeroBurner family) and it features the familiar Speed Pocket channel on its sole which is among the widest/longest on the market; this trademark design is aimed at providing its owner with an outstanding high ball speed right off the face. Compared with the JetSpeed Rescue from which it draws some of its strengths (it actually replaces it), the TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue features a shallow and deeper head while the slot is way longer. Hitting the ball you’ll notice a very distinctive and fulfilling sound, which feels very solid and pleasing to your ears, even if it’s a bit on the hollow side. The feedback/overall feel is exceptionally good in this price range (which is not exactly cheap) and that’s owed to the head and slot construction, at least partly. The TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue is basically all about speed and to accomplish this, the company chose to raise the center section of the club’s crown and made the surface more rough in order to keep the drag on the low side as you swing the club in the air.

    The AeroHosel thingy is a clever design touch, i.e. a little fin on the hosel which plays a crucial role in speeding the air along and also gives a distinctive look to the AeroBurner Rescue hybrid. The shaft is very low, being provided by Matrix Speed Rul-Z and weighs 70 grams but it actually feels lighter than the manifest says. Usually, lighter shafts mess with your overall feel of the golf club, but in this particular case the AeroBurner Rescue feels stable and consistent during the swing and offers a more than decent level of performance. The deeper and longer head (when compared to the R15 Rescue family) of the AeroBurner gives the ball a higher flight path and also more forgiveness to the hybrid. Bottom line, the TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue will provide its owner with a great golfing experience, being the ideal club to hit if you’re an above average player and it also offers great value for money.
