TaylorMade Burner Rescue Review

By Eric Cornelison

Specs

The TaylorMade Burner Rescue hybrid is available for left or right handers, and it is available with steel or graphite shafts. REAX SuperFast graphite is the most common shaft. The club head speed will determine whether you need a light/senior, regular or stiff/firm flex shaft. Lofts for the Rescue are 17 degrees to replace your 2-iron, 19 degrees to replace your 3-iron, 22 degrees to replace your 4-iron, 25 degrees to replace your 5-iron and 28 degrees to replace your 6-iron. The standard TaylorMade rubber composition grip is the common grip, but it can be customized to fit.

Perks

When hitting off a tee, you will hit the fairway pretty regularly--maybe even better than usual. The alignment tool will assist you at address, and you will achieve a straighter ball flight. You will get the ball up out of the rough easier and a high ball flight allows the ball to land softly.

Sacrifices

Attempting to hit a low ball when you need to is biggest problem you will find with these clubs. The distance sacrifice on mishits is also more than expected from a rescue club. It can be hard to draw or fade on command, compared to other brand-name rescue clubs.

Bottom Line

The TaylorMade Rescue Hybrids are good clubs to carry in your bag if you have problems hitting your long irons. These are not the longest hybrids on market, but the ball will go a competitive distance. You can find the clubs on the Internet from $89 to $129.
