The TaylorMade RocketBallz Irons set holds up great today at a terrific buy from 2nd Swing.

Released in 2012, TaylorMade’s RocketBallZ (RBZ) Irons line quickly became the hottest iron of the year and remains a prime buy today, especially considering the price drop despite no lack in performance compared to its current competitors. Combined with a solid feel, great performance and longer distance, high- and low-handicap players eagerly put the TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons in play. Although the RocketBallZ Iron set is dubbed as a game improvement iron, it is not as thick and bulky as the normal iron in this category.

There's no denying the quality of TaylorMade's RocketBallz Irons, and it's really hard to beat today's prices for the quality you receive in return from the 2012-2013 line.

Technology (9 out of 10)

The TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons line is designed to promote improved feel with longer and straighter shots. The 3- through 5-irons feature a two-piece construction with low center of gravity (CG) and high coefficient of restitution (COR) for high launch and faster ball speeds.

Off-center hits perform more consistent with TaylorMade’s own original “Toe-Bar” design for more forgiving shots. I believe with the Toe-Bar, vibration and sound control are utilized to promote improved feel and sound at impact. TaylorMade did an outstanding job of developing an iron that hits longer and straighter shots, so it’s easy to give the RocketBallZ Irons series high marks in the technology department.

TaylorMade's RocketBallz Irons set is the Editor's Choice for both quality and price.

Look (8 out of 10)

The TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons feature a progressive head with a cavity-back design in longer irons, while the shorter irons utilize a smaller and more compact clubhead. The long irons have a game-improvement feel while the short irons have a little leaner design. The entire set just looks forgiving and easy to hit. Additionally, the dull steel finish and black cavity looks nice with neon green accents that really make the club pop. For those who are not a fan of the neon green, don’t worry, you don’t see it at address.

Overall, the iron looks solid in my opinion.

 

Performance (10 out of 10)

I tested the TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons set with the stock RBZ steel shaft in a stiff flex. The club has an average to heavier feel with a D3.5 swing weight. The TaylorMade RBZ Irons series is all about high launch, forgiveness and longer distance. Initially introduced as a game-improvement iron, the TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons series attracted the attention of low-, mid- and-high handicap players since they are so easy to hit and forgiving. If you are looking for more distance, the RBZ irons are probably the longest iron released in 2012.

TaylorMade increased the length and lofts of each individual iron, which contribute to longer distance. RocketBallZ Irons easily outdistanced my personal set by at least one full club. Additionally, combined with the new technology TaylorMade invested in the club, it is easy to see why the RBZ is one of the longest sets of irons TaylorMade ever produced.

Finally, the RocketBallZ Irons set is extremely forgiving. Players searching for the ability to work the ball might want to check with another line. Normally long irons are typically difficult to hit, yet, the off-center hits with the RBZ Irons still travel high and long. Ball trajectory is fairly straight, even on shots pushed or pulled in relation to the target. The irons are extremely easy to hit from nearly any lie or condition. The TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons series is long, accurate and easy to hit, so the performance rates a perfect score.

TaylorMade's 2012-2013 RocketBallz line mos def holds up today and is a great buy now.

Final Thoughts (Overall: 10 out of 10) 

TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons set replaced the popular Burner 2.0 iron. The price point stayed consistent at $699.99 or more for a set of eight irons, however, the retail price has plummeted down to $349.99 for a set. Players searching for consistency, accuracy and distance should give the TaylorMade RocketBallZ Irons a try. In my opinion, TaylorMade created an iron that appeals to a diverse group of players and performs awesome at an affordable price.

The overall value of this set helps make it almost a perfect buy.
