Product Review: Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 Fairway Woods
Taylormade Golf Company has come out with a new brand of golf clubs that really have a striking appearance to them. The Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway woods are a part of this new trend, in which the clubhead is white while the clubface itself is black. It is truly a unique blend of colors that match well together. As far as other specifications, the fairway woods are comprised of very lightweight clubheads that are designed to increase swing speed, along with the Winn Lite grip and Matrix XCon shaft that come stock with the club. The Superfast fairway woods are also designed for greater carry, with the clubface having a low center of gravity. With that said here is my overall review of the Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway woods.
The first positive that I noticed came on the first tee box, where the ball just jumped off of the clubface. I don’t know what it is about all the new technology these days, but I like it more and more as my distance goes down with age. It was not just the tee shots either, but practically every shot that was hit felt solid. I even tried putting a golf ball in an old divot and the ball still shot out straight and true. This goes into my next positive, in that the Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway woods are extremely forgiving. It did not matter if I hit it off of the toe or the heel, the golf clubs still performed well above expectations.
The third positive that I found with these fairway woods is that it is easy to work the ball either way, more so off the tee than in the fairway. If there was a hole that required a draw for instance, I could simply use my draw swing and the club would do the rest for me. It is truly effortless swinging these golf clubs, and a lot of that is due in part to the lightweight features I mentioned earlier. Lastly, the fairway woods are extremely durable and could probably last for years and years. After a few long sessions on the driving range I thought the clubs might have lost their distance but they certainly proved me wrong out on the golf course time and time again.
It was truly difficult trying to find any sort of negatives with the Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway woods, but if I had to be nitpicky I would have to go with its performance out of the rough. When it came to fairway bunkers the clubs would work perfectly and get the ball straight up in the air upon impact, but it just didn’t feel the same when hitting them out of the rough (and especially deep rough). I just could not get solid contact between the club and ball at all in the rough, and maybe this is due in part to the clubs being so lightweight. Regardless, this was the only real negative that I could find when it came to these fairway woods.
The Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 fairway woods are a great step in the right direction for Taylormade Golf Company. If you have been with them for their drivers, you should definitely try out their fairway woods, as they are as good as, if not better than, many other competitiors out on the market today. These fairway woods are that good.
