TaylorMade AeroBurner Fairway Woods


Category: Game-Improvement Fairway Woods
Price: $230
3 (15°), 5 (18°) with Matrix Speed Rul-Z 60 graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A larger speed pocket lets a bigger area of the face flex more.



PLAYABILITY: Moderate to high flight—higher than usual for many testers; likes to work a slight draw and lots of carry; it performs well in a variety of situations, from rough to sand to tight lies; testers especially love it off the tee for its distance and consistency.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Shots hold their target line well on off-center contact—only a slight loss of accuracy on misses; slower swingers see the best performance.
DISTANCE: Here’s where AeroBurner shines: they’re out-and-out bombers; great length off the tee and from the fairway; these don’t lose much on off-center hits.
FEEL: Lively impact feel—responsive, crisp, concise sensation; slightly harder feedback on misses lets you know you’ve erred; the light club makes it easy to swing freely and smoothly, but it’s well-balanced and has enough heft during the swing for most guys’ taste.
LOOK: Low-profile, smallish heads easily set up square behind the ball; the black face, raised center portion on the crown and “AeroBurner” logo make alignment a snap; some guys love the white head and shaft.



Some testers want more forgiveness in a game-improvement club; a few guys find that these lightish clubs favor slower swing speeds; others aren’t huge fans of the white-on-white head and shaft.

BOTTOM LINE: The AeroBurner is one of the top clubs tested in the game-improvement category. It stands out as a long-hitting, easy-to-swing weapon. Especially fond of it are players with smooth, rhythmic swing tempos.
