Today I received my new Rocketbladez demo irons, so I thought I would put them to the test. The demo irons were stiff steel shafts with standard length and lie. I tested them against my current irons which are the TaylorMade MC irons with S300 stiff steel shafts that are 1.5" longer than standard. (The demo irons are shorter in length than my current irons). My guess before going out was that the Rocketbladez would go about the same distance as my current irons because my current irons are fit for me and are much longer in length. Boy was I wrong!! Here are the results:
Distance Club Speed Ball Speed
MC PW 127 76 93
Rocketbladez PW 128 78 94
MC 7iron 157 80 110
Rocketbladez 7iron 164 82 115
MC 4 iron 181 88 121
Rocketbladez 4 iron 193 88 127
***The test was done with some pretty old TaylorMade range balls on a 57 degree day***
***10 balls were hit with each club***
The Rocketbladez definitely go further than anything I have hit. The most impressive thing was the increase in ball speed. The Rocketbladez 4 iron went 12 yards further on average because of a 6 mph advantage in ball speed.

Everyone knows the definition of insanity. In golf, why do some golfers refuse to get REAL help with their game? I see a lot of golfers who try and figure it out on their own only to figure out that they can't. Golf is such a hard game to advance at if you don't have proper instruction. Since golfers can only go off what they feel they are doing or what their 20 handicap buddy tells them they are doing, it is hard to find/fix the problem. Most golfers swings' don't change very much when they practice or try to improve on the range by themselves simply because they don't know how to fix their own faults. If you knew absolutely nothing about cars, imagine trying to fix your own! The price you pay for lessons might be worth it. Those headaches you get every time you play could be eliminated.
