The TaylorMade RocketBallz irons have generated a ton of publicity since the first product’s were launched in march 2012. While many thought that TaylorMade had made a major mistake with the “RocketbBallz” name, the name appears to have caught on with the majority of the golfers.
The name still induces a few chuckles to those hearing it for the first time, but the quality, style and performance of the products is no joke. The TaylorMade RocketBallz provide a longer, straighter ball flight and better feel too. The meticulous design took accuracy, distance, workability and feel into consideration.

Top 5 Best Selling TaylorMade RocketBallz Irons Sets
Range of irons
These individually engineered irons feature a 2-piece metal-wood construction in all the 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9-irons. All TaylorMade rbz pro irons in this range have a low center of gravity and a high COR. Each iron is individually tuned and optimized so each iron would have a noticeably different look. The 6 is the only piece with a pitching wedge as the 3, 4 and 5 all have a thick top line.
As mentioned earlier, the 3-5 irons utilize two piece metal-wood construction which contributes to a lower center of gravity and increases the iron’s moment of inertia (MOI). This combination increases the forgiveness of longer irons and provides a high but penetrating ball flight. The Inverted Cone face Technology that is standard in all TaylorMade clubs also provides faster ball speeds and more distance even on shots hit slightly off-center.
The other two new design features that made their debut in the TaylorMade Irons are:
The re-engineered face structure with the Toe-Bar located in the upper toe area which helps make the club face square during impact. This makes it easier to hit straighter shots.
The head has an ultra thin ace that flexes freely to promote the COR up to the USGA limit for longer distance. The wedges are fitted with the new ATV sole for optimum playability and versatility. For better sound and feel, all the irons have a new Sound and Vibration Control System.
The solid feel inspires a high degree of confidence as you get the feeling that you do not need to work too hard to achieve a smooth and consistent swing.
