Have a Question? Ask a PGA Professional


The TaylorMade RocketBladez, or R Blades, iron set takes the concept of the RBZ Speed pocket from the fairways and hybrids and incorporates it into irons (3-7 irons). This RBZ Speed Pocket combined with an ultra-thin face and new inverted cone design promotes consistently higher ball speed and peak trajectory, especially on mis-hits low on the face. It also produces a steep, soft-landing, quick-stopping approach angle and reduces dispersion to promote increased accuracy. The result is higher, longer, straighter and quicker-stopping shots. That's RocketBladez.


  • RBZ Speed pocket in the 3- through 7-irons works with an advanced, ultra-thin face design to promote consistently high ball speed and distance.
  • Consistent distance with every iron made possible by careful management of the RBZ Speed Pocket (3- through 7- only), improved Inverted Cone shape and high MOI.
  • 17.5 grams of weight is strategically redistributed to lower and center the CG location, promoting a higher launch angle, higher peak trajectory and a steep, soft-landing, quick-stopping descent angle.
  • Fantastic feel promoted by a specially formulated polyurethane developed by 3M that fills the RBZ Speed Pocket and quiets vibration.
  • SW and LW have re-designed cavities to promote feel, feature our renowned ATV sole for maximum greenside versatility, and come equipped with heavier steel shafts to promote better rhythm and control.

Technology / Specs

The TaylorMade RocketBladez irons revolutionizes the design and technology of iron sets. The new design and technology implemented into the RocketBladez irons aims to promote higher ball launch and faster ball speed. The improvements to the irons should also allow not only for higher shots, but also for straighter, longer shots that will stop quicker thanks to a steeper descent angle.

The "Speed Pocket" on these irons is responsible for these improvements in playability and shot shaping ability. TaylorMade introduced the Speed Pocket first on the RocketBallz Fairway Woods. The success they had with it there inspired them to translate it to a line of irons.

The Speed Pocket is a slot in the sole of the clubs (on the 3 through 7 irons) that is about 2mm wide. Its ability to give and flex when it impacts the ball promotes faster ball speed, higher launch angle, and a shot that lands with more "stickiness."

The RocketBladez's Speed Pocket will also help golfers on mis-hits, making them a more forgiving iron that helps to create consistency even if the golfer is prone to mis-hits low on the clubface with irons shots. (Studies by TaylorMade indicate a majority of amateur golfers will mis-hit their iron below the center of the club face.)

Speed Pocket

The ability of the Speed Pocket to give and flex at impact makes the clubface capable of higher speeds, which translates to more ball speed after impact and a higher launch angle. While the Speed Pocket is a 2mm wide cavity behind the club face, unlike the Speed Pocket on the RocketBallz fairways, the Speed Pockets in the RocketBladez irons are filled with a polyurethane material that was specially forumated by 3M. This polyurethane filler dampens vibration without significantly inhibiting the movement of the pocket, and it also serves the purpose of keeping debris out.

Ultra-thin clubface with improved Inverted Cone design

The clubface on the RocketBladez is made of strong, maraging stainless steel. TaylorMade boasts it's their most sophisticated clubface design yet, which they achieved through exhaustive testing and analysis. The RocketBladez clubface is the thinnest iron face TaylorMade has manufactured to date, with the top section 11% thinner--down from 1.8mm to 1.6mm.

The RocketBladez irons also incorporate the latest iteration of TaylorMade's Inverted Cone Technology. The improved design delivers increases the area of the clubface which creates higher ball speeds. It also influences how the clubface gives and rebounds at impact, which better controls the launch angle of the ball from the face, which leads to straighter shots and increased precision. This makes the RocketBladez more accurate than previous high-COR irons.

Low and centered CG location

To achieve maximum ball speed on any shot, it is critical that the clubface strike the ball in front of where the club head's center of gravity (CG) is located. TaylorMade engineers fine-tuned the CG in the RocketBladez irons to a low and perfectly centered location on the clubface. They were able to achieve this by shortening the hosel in order to save weight. They also took additional weight from the top of the club and redistributed it in strategic areas within the head. The RocketBladez club head design redistributes overall 17.5 grams of weight, which effectively lowers the CG by 2.5mm compared to the Burner 2.0 irons. By pushing the CG lower in the center of the face, players will find it easier to consistently find the sweetspot and achieve maximum energy transfer from club to ball, promoting a higher launch angle and maximum distance.

External and Internal Hosel-bending Notches

RocketBladez irons (both models) feature a distinct external notch on the outer, rear side of the hosel and an internal notch inside that together make it easy to bend the head to change the lie angle. That's a distinct advantage to bendability when employing high-strength stainless steel in the head construction.
