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).
