TaylorMade TP Blades

This is probably the 2nd to last report from my TM demo day last week.

I got the chance to hit some shots with the TaylorMade TP Blades. I don’t even know the name of these babies. They’re not even listed on TM’s web site yet so I’m calling them the TP Blades. I was told that Sergio Garcia and Retief Goosen play them.

These are most definitely blades. The heads are small. The top line and profile is thin. If you like that Callaway shovel look at the bottom of the club then these aren’t for you. If you miss-hit a lot of shots these also aren’t for you.

Major feedback

My first swing with the 8-iron was an instant feedback event. Zing-buzzzzzzz and half my fingers went numb. I’d miss hit the shot about a half an inch toward the hozel. Ouch. I really concentrated on making contact in the center of the club face from that point on.

Throw some darts

The rest of my shots were right on the center of the face and boy were they butta. This baby flew straight as a laser beam. My dispersion pattern was very narrow. The ball flight was very high. These babies launch the ball on a very high trajectory and with precision accuracy.

Werk it baby

When I wasn’t trying to hit it straight these blades worked like nobody’s business. I could fashion any kind of curve I wanted in either direction.

Conclusion

Though I didn’t get to put these blades through my typical in depth testing I can tell they’re primo clubs. If you are a “player” I’d check these out. If you are a “playa” and not a “player” then I’d recommend some game improvement clubs.
