TaylorMade JetSpeed driver and JetSpeed Fairway Wood Review

Taylormade is very good at coming up with catchy names for their cheap golf clubs families. What does JetSpeed promise? All the JetSpeed woods – driver, fairway woods and hybrids – are aerodynamically designed and have light overall weights, to help the golfer gain more clubhead speed.

The Taylormade JetSpeed driver is TaylorMade’s first to incorporate a speed pocket behind the face, helping the face flex more and rebound with more “oomph” as a boost to ball speed. According to TaylorMade, the speed pocket promotes less spin, and has a strong effect on ball speed for shots struck below the middle of the face. Given that’s where most shots are struck by recreational golfers, that’s a good thing.

The crown is matte black and the clubface is silver. The driver includes the company’s Loft-Sleeve technology, and golfers will be able to adjust the stated loft up or down by as much as 1.5 degrees. And the low-forward center of gravity position helps reduce spin, especially on higher lofts.

The TaylorMade JetSpeed fairway wood has the low-and-forward center of gravity positions, plus the overall lightweight design to help reduce spin in the first case, and increase swing speed in the second. It has a smaller speed pocket that’s been redesigned to take up less weight, while having a polymer filling to prevent a buildup inside the pocket of turf debris.

The clubheads of fairway wood is low-profile, helping golfers get the ball up in the air efficiently off the fairway. The design favors a high trajectory with a long carry. The stock shaft in the JetSpeed fairway woods is the Matrix Velox T 69 shaft. JetSpeed fairway woods come in 3-wood (15 degrees of loft), 3HL (17 degrees), 5-wood (19 degrees), 5HL (21 degrees) and 7-wood (23 degrees).
