TaylorMade RocketBLADEZ, $799

TaylorMade claimed that these new irons—with a “speed pocket” in the sole and low CG (that’s center of gravity, we think)—would launch the ball high and straight even when you pick up and hit it low on the face. Well, we know a thing or two about worm-burners, so we challenged that assertion on the course the other day, and Goddamn if they weren’t right. RocketBladez gave us something we don’t usually have with a five-iron in our hands: Confidence (also: an excuse to use the term “worm-burner” in a non-VD context).
