TaylorMade manufactured the SpeedBlade irons for golfers looking to improve both distance and height with their irons. In addition, TaylorMade designed the club to consistently achieve solid contact upon hitting the ball with greater control and forgiveness.
Due to the popularity of these clubs, we have comprised a comprehensive review of the SpeedBlade Irons.
TaylorMade suggested that for mid to high handicappers they tend to hit their iron shots too low on the face of the club. The end result is a low landing shot. This is where the SpeedBlades come in to play with their speed pocket technology. Read on for our detailed guide of the SpeedBlade Iron set.

TaylorMade Men's SpeedBlade Irons Complete Set

- Individually engineered heads; Balanced distance gaps between each iron
The key feature of the TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons is the speed pocket technology- this is a handle bar shaped slot is positioned in the sole of irons long to mid-length.
This helps with flex and rebound of the ball with impact as there is a larger area of clubface. The SpeedPocket is from heel to toe within the 3 to 7 irons.
SpeedBlade Irons are extremely forgiving clubs- basically, regardless of where you connect the ball with the club head, the result will be a powerful, good hit.
These irons work to increase ball speed and ball flight similar to a long-distance iron but feel much softer in the hands.
According to TaylorMade for handicappers of the 5 to 25 range 72% of shots connect below the center of the face. This is where the Speed Pocket technology will provide the launch needed for higher and longer shots.
How does it achieve this? The technology works to increase the width and length of the clubface which results in the high launch angle.
TaylorMade has also used engineers to cater to the distance-gaps between speed blade irons. This has been achieved through the loft, face thickness, shaft, club length, the centre of gravity and speed pocket. The complete iron set boasts consistent and balanced distance gaps between each club.
As mentioned these clubs are very forgiving so to lose distance could only be done so by a really bad strike.
The Speed Blades also boast Inverted Cone Technology which means there is a large sweet spot for any off-center hits.
The long irons have a larger topline and have been designed to not only provide extra distance but also to enhance the feel of play.
The Speed Blade Irons feature two-tone, satin nickel chrome plating with a smoke satin iron plating. They are very aesthetically pleasing irons and their performance matches.
The TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons are available in:
- Both right and left-hand orientation
- Graphite or steel shafts
- Regular or stiff flex
- Different iron combinations
These irons are game improvement clubs and will definitely increase your confidence. They feel great to golf with and thanks to the forgiveness even off-center hits are nice. Greater distance can be achieved as well as higher launch and ball flight trajectory.
If you are looking to improve your golf game then these irons will help immensely. If you are a low handicap golfer you probably won’t find these irons to be as helpful.
