JetSpeed fairway woods and Rescue? clubs each incorporate a radically redesigned Speed Pocket that?s smaller and accounts for less weight while remaining just as efficient at boosting the speed of the clubface. Think of it as an afterburner for your ball. Unlike the Speed Pockets in our previous fairways and Rescues, which were empty, JetSpeed?s is filled with polymer to keep debris out and absorb unwanted vibration without slowing down the clubface.
The weight saved by the new Speed Pocket design is redistributed strategically within the clubhead to move the CG lower and forward, the location that TaylorMade has proven promotes fast ball speed and low spin. TaylorMade?s robot testing indicates that JetSpeed fairways and Rescue clubs reduce spin compared to RBZ Stage 2 to promote more distance. JetSpeed fairways reduce spin by 200-300 RPM compared to RBZ Stage 2 to promote more distance.*
The redesigned Speed Pocket also allowed TaylorMade engineers to make the face shallower while still maintaining the same high speed as RBZ Stage 2 fairways and Rescues. The JetSpeed 3-wood?s face is shallower than the RBZ Stage 2 3-wood (by 2 millimeters), bringing the CG in lower in relation to the center of the face to make it easier to launch on a high angle. Plus, it gives JetSpeed fairways and Rescues an especially sleek and stealthy appearance, like an F-22 Raptor ready for takeoff.
JetSpeed fairway woods and Rescue clubs offer a tremendous combination of distance and ease of launch, and JetSpeed fairways are the longest and most playable fairway woods we?ve ever created, exceeding RBZ Stage 2.*
All JetSpeed metalwood clubfaces (driver, fairways and Rescues) are made of JetSteel of an ultra-strong steel alloy that adds to the speed of the face. JetSpeed fairway woods are equipped with Matrix?s Velox T 69 shaft. At 69 grams it?s a heavier shaft than we?ve used in our previous fairway wood models. The added weight promotes better club control during the swing, which helps players achieve a sound swing path and solid contact, which together promote increased distance and accuracy.
*Longest fairway claim based on robot testing, neutral setting at approximately 156 mph ball speed.
