What we say...
Wrap it up, I’ll take it away now,” was the reaction of TG tester Chris after hitting TaylorMade’s newest Rescue club. In fact, he went straight out and bought one after the test. The Burner Superfast is designed on the “grip it and rip it” philosophy because the faster you can swing the club, the further you will hit it – and TaylorMade say it is eight yards longer than the Burner 08 model. However, this means TaylorMade have had to make it more forgiving. The triangular shape and larger head give a higher MOI while ultra-thin walls move weight lower and deeper for a higher trajectory. Pro James said the Superfast was as good as anything he has hit while also rating it very highly for its looks, as did Mark. David agreed the club performed brilliantly and liked the design, however it reminded him more of a 5-wood than a hybrid club and marked it down slightly on the performance from the rough. Nevertheless, this club not only united opinion among our test panel but performed well in everyone’s hands. A terrific golf club!

The Taylormade Superfast Burner Hybrid won a gold award on the hybrids test in Today's Golfer, which can be found in issue 271. Burner SuperFast Rescues feature a triangular-shaped head that combines extra-high MOI with an extra-low CG, making this one of easiest to hit hybrids we've ever built. Additionally, these Rescues are one-half inch longer and one degree stronger than the Burner 08 Rescues to promote more distance. In fact, Burner SuperFast Rescues are dialed in to deliver distances and distance-gaps that dovetail more effectively with our Burner irons.
