Millions of Americans have made a New Year's resolution to lose weight, and so has TaylorMade. In mid-February, you'll be able to get your hands on the new Burner SuperFast driver, which weighs 14 grams less than its predecessor.
The 460cc head of the Burner SuperFast is sleeker and more aerodynamic than the previous Burner driver, allowing it to slip through the air more efficiently and help you swing the club faster. At the same time, the face of the SuperFast is the largest TaylorMade has ever produced, which should help maintain ball speed across a larger hitting area and increase forgiveness.
The Burner SuperFast comes standard with a 46.5-inch Matrix Ozik XCon 4.8 shaft, which is both extremely light and soft in the tip. That combination should help launch drives on a higher trajectory with more spin, which should improve carry distance for slower-swinging players. (Fast-swinging players benefit from a driver that launches the ball high with less spin.)
Even the Winn grip on the Burner SuperFast is light, tipping the scales at just 30 grams.
Steel fairway woods to match the Burner SuperFast driver are also on the way. At 301 grams each, the SuperFast 3-wood (13˚), 5-wood (15˚) and 7-wood (17˚) are the lightest ever created by TaylorMade.
The Burner SuperFast driver will be available in three lofts (9.5, 10.5 and HT, or high trajectory) and five shaft flexes (L, M, R, S, X) on Feb. 19 for $299. The fairways woods will be available on the same day for $199.
