TaylorMade AeroBurner Hybrid

Category: Game-Improvement Hybrids
Price: $200
WE TESTED:
3 (19°), 4 (22°) with Matrix Speed Rul-Z 70 graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The updated speed pocket improves output on off-center contact.

PROS

PLAYABILITY: The AeroBurner loves to rip long, driving draws; a flatter trajectory than its peers but easy enough to elevate; a dynamo off the tee, strong in the fairway and above average from the rough.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: A slicer’s savior, with a draw bias that eliminates the right side of the course; it matches your level of consistency—you’ll know when you miss one, but thinned or toed shots still chase out there a ways.
DISTANCE: These puppies pack a punch—one of the longest in the group; a Howitzer off the tee—shots stay in the air forever and hit the ground screaming; off-center hits still have some muscle; sit back and let the AeroBurner do its thing—it doesn’t take much to see mammoth results.
FEEL: Outstanding at impact—it vaporizes the ball; greets center strikes with a soft, dense compression and offers a gentle nudge when you miss the sweet spot; stable through the turf; the definition of “crushed it.”
LOOK: Shock white with a contrasting black face; sets up well—color scheme, raised bulge in the crown and text alignment aid all help to square it up.

CONS

The draw bias is no joke—if you don’t fight a slice, keep moving; not forgiving enough on misses for some guys; there’s a lot going on over the ball—the raised, dimpled and bright white head can be distracting.

BOTTOM LINE: The AeroBurner is one of the best hybrid models tested. If you fight a slice and want a boost off the tee, try the AeroBurner. It’s a bomber with high marks for its distance and explosive feel.
