TaylorMade AeroBurner Fairway Woods Review

TaylorMade’s AeroBurner and AeroBurner TP Fairway woods could be a good addition to your bag. I had the opportunity to test out both at this year’s PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day.

Technology (90/100)

Aero Hosel Fin

Aero Hosel Technology reduces drag on the AeroBurner Fairways

TaylorMade had huge success with the RocketBallz Line of woods a couple years ago, and they have been building off the SpeedPocket design ever since. The AeroBurner Fairways have a similar design in regards to the speed pocket however they also included some redefined aerodynamics which is where the name comes from. On the top of the crown you can feel a raised ridge which in theory reduces drag to increase club head speed. Besides the new crown aerodynamics they have also added a fin on the outside of the hosel to help reduce drag and increase that head speed even more.

Looks (80/100)

On my first shot with an AeroBurner Fairway, I was quite disturbed with the fin on the backside of the hosel, it looked funny and mentally I couldn’t get passed it. After ten or so balls I didn’t even notice it, and can’t complain as it is human nature to oppose change, but very quickly I became all about the change. The AeroBurners look at address will remind you of the Burner Superfast 2.0 if you had ever had the opportunity to play it, but that is only after you forget about the fin hosel.

Performance (80/100)

The AeroBurner Fairways performed well enough, however I couldn’t replicate two shots in a row. I did get a bit more distance from the TP version, and was carrying the ball further than I could hit the AeroBurner Driver. However my dispersion was pretty much straight down the middle or 20 yards off line, which I can deal with for the carry I was getting.

Final Thoughts (Overall 83/100)

Unless you are practicing a lot with this club you may find it difficult to control, however if your more interested in producing longer shots from the fairways or even the tee box just to make your friends jealous, than you should probably try this one out.
