TaylorMade Aeroburner Reviews And Comparison
TaylorMade has a great reputation for high-quality golf clubs at a (mostly) affordable price. One of their most well-known lines has been the TaylorMade AeroBurner line.
The TaylorMade AeroBurner line of golf clubs was a very popular brand by TaylorMade that was launched in the mid-2010s.
Are AeroBurner clubs and golf balls worth it, and what did the reviews have to say?
Current Availability of the TaylorMade AeroBurner Line
TaylorMade still sells new AeroBurner golf balls, but they have moved on from the brand when it comes to golf clubs. TaylorMade is now focused on their M series of drivers and clubs. Therefore, the company does not sell* or advertise AeroBurner clubs any more on their website.
*You can find links to old AeroBurner pages on the TaylorMade website, but you can’t add the club to the website as none of the options are available.
As of this writing, you can still find new Aeroburner clubs at online stores such as Amazon. You may also be able to find some at your local golf club shop. And, you can obtain good quality used AeroBurner clubs at many golf club resellers.
The challenge will be whether you can get the club you want with the options and features that fit you and your golf game (a type of shaft, left-handed vs. right, etc.)
There are mostly men’s Aeroburner golf clubs, though women can potentially play them with a senior flex shaft. You can also find some women’s clubs in the AeroBurner line still for sale.
Because AeroBurner clubs are no longer the latest in golf club technology promoted by TaylorMade, you can probably get these clubs at an amazing price.
What Might You Find in the Taylor AeroBurner Line?
Here is what you might find if you look up AeroBurner golf clubs and accessories:
- Fairway Woods (Metalwoods)
- Rescue Club / Hybrid Club
- Golf Balls
- Women’s Clubs
We will mostly cover the men’s golf clubs in this article in terms of reviews and pricing, though the women’s AeroBurner clubs are fairly comparable in terms of quality and cost.
TaylorMade AeroBurner Technology
The technology behind AeroBurner is “old” now compared to the newer M1, M2, M3, and M3 drivers and clubs by TaylorMade. Yet, it is still some of the latest and best in golfing technology.
TaylorMade actually gets some criticism at times for pushing out too many new models of drivers and other clubs. They are constantly trying to outdo themselves technology-wise.
Do these constant advances in technology actually mean that you will see a huge difference on the golf course during actual play? Maybe, but maybe not.
Here is just some of the technology advertised for the AeroBurner line of golf clubs:
Large Speed Pocket and Aerodynamics
The Fairway “Metalwoods” was advertised as having the “largest speed pocket ever,” an open channel speed pocket, to help increase the speed of the swing through better aerodynamics. This feature was also supported and enhanced by the aerodynamic shape of the clubs, particularly the hosel fin and raised center crown.
The irons also feature a speed pocket designed for a higher launch and faster burn speed.
“New” Performance Package
The AeroBurner irons boasted these features:
- For the face, an up-to-the-limit COR design that is engineering to create the most speed for the golf ball.
- A low center of gravity that launches the golf ball high with ease.
- A head that is designed with a high-level of MOI (moment of inertia).
- The loft has also been optimized and CG placement improved to help with consistency and power.
TaylorMade AeroBurner Driver Reviews
You can still get brand new TaylorMade AeroBurner drivers (at least as of this writing). While the options may not be fabulous depending on where you look, you can still get a great deal.
For example, with this product listing on Amazon, you have an option of a graphite shaft in regular or senior flex. Two loft configurations are listed, 10.5 degrees and 12 degrees, but only 12 degrees is available for both flexes. These are, of course, right-handed clubs. If you are left-handed, your options for older model clubs is going to be quite limited, unfortunately.
That club runs for $429.99 on Amazon as of this writing, even though it is not a recent model, which is not the best price you could probably get for an older type of driver. Still, it could be worth it. It gets an average of four and a half stars out of five.
And, you can sometimes keep an eye on something on Amazon and the price will drop. One reviewer reported in a review on April 4, 2018, that they got the driver for a mere $99.
One of the most common positive comments is that the driver is very “forgiving,” which means it helps you out if you aren’t that consistent with your hits and have a tendency to slice.
Unfortunately, a few reviewers reported that the head flew off the shaft after a couple of hits, which could be a quality control glitch with TaylorMade. However, this is not a common problem, fortunately, and Amazon is usually pretty good with returns for this type of problem.
Here is an example of a very positive review from November 5, 2017:
“Just got this 9.5-degree stiff driver last week and have played two nines and am pretty impressed. As I got into my mid 60’s I went to a regular flex just seemed to fight the two drivers I bought. This club is sweet and kept me in play and no loss of distance, but actually a few more yards than my Titleist 913 10.5 regular. LOVE IT !!”
You can also get a TaylorMade AeroBurner 2016 driver for $159.99 to $264.84, but this gets lower ratings at only three and a half stars on Amazon.
TaylorMade AeroBurner Fairway Woods Reviews
The fairway woods aka metalwoods originally retailed for $299.99 MSRP. You can now find these for varying prices. For example, Amazon has a “TaylorMade Men’s AeroBurner Fairway Wood, Right Hand, Stiff, 3” for $139.99 as of this writing (a woman’s version of the club is available here for the same price).
Other AeroBurner fairway woods run from $99.99 to $209.98, and one listing had a range of $65 to $338.97.
You can find different options for lofts, such as 15, 16.5, or 18 degrees, regular, senior, or stiff flex, and right or left-handed clubs. However, you may have a hard time finding the exact combination of options (i.e, 18 degrees loft, senior flex, right handed.)
Most of the reviews of the AeroBurner fairway woods clubs from 2017 are positive. Some are just one-word manifestos: “Great!” Others get more into details about why it is good.
Here is one review from the TaylorMade website (albeit from 2016):
“This fairway wood is amazing. After upgrading from the Rocketball Stage 2, this clubs are easier to hit and gives me at least 15 more yards. The only problem is that I’m having to change my game because I’m hitting it further…”
We found a few reviews where people said the clubs weren’t that great, but they did not go into detail. The average star rating for these fairway woods by TaylorMade is from four to five stars depending on the product listing and location (Amazon, TaylorMade, etc.).
TaylorMade AeroBurner Irons Reviews
Sets of Aeroburner irons are still available, as of this writing, for brand new on Amazon and other golf club websites. As with other clubs, you may not get the exact features you want. These sets vary in price, from $369.99 to $739.99 on Amazon (as of this writing).
You might find some amazing deals as well, such as this listing for an iron set at $299.99…but the problem is, they are “out of stock” and can’t get it back in stock.
The reviews of these irons are almost universally positive, with a consistent average of four and a half stars across a variety of websites.
Here is one such positive TaylorMade Aeroburner irons review from 2017:
“Traded in RSI 1’s for Aeroburners, what a difference. I am a senior with a slow swing speed. Aero’s with senior graphite shafts are buttery smooth & fly straight & long. I feel confident over the ball with these irons. Long irons fly long, short irons hold the green. Custom ordered them 1/2 inch shorter with Winn Dritac grips, no loss of distance, in fact, I get more distance because they fit me perfectly.”
TaylorMade AeroBurner Rescue Club / Hybrid Reviews
A rescue club is the same thing as a hybrid – a golf club that is in between a fairway wood and an iron. It has a smaller head than a fairway wood and a face that is more like an iron.
You will find the TaylorMade Aeroburner rescue club also listed as a hybrid club in online product listings. The cost may run anywhere from $55 to $187.50 for a new club.
The options include a 3R at 19 degrees, a 4R at 22 degrees, and a 6R at 28 degrees in regular, senior, and stiff flex shafts. Unfortunately, most of these options are not available new anymore, so you may have to look around.
For example, with this listing on Amazon, your option is a stiff flex 3R with a 19-degree loft.
This club mostly gets five-star ratings. People generally love this club and say that it works quite well. If you have an issue with your low irons and/or your fairway woods, this golf club can potentially be a lifesaver.
One review said: “This club is the best! I think I could use it exclusively up to the green. It’s made a big difference in my game.”
This is not an uncommon sentiment. Quite a few golfers reported that they are using this club instead of a few other clubs in their bag, and now it is their “go-to” golf club.
TaylorMade AeroBurner Golf Balls Reviews
TaylorMade has a lot of different types of golf balls they sell, from the expensive to the cheap:

Yellow Project (a) Golf Balls – $29.99 (on sale from $34.99)
AeroBurner Pro Golf Balls – $21.99 (on sale from $26.99)
As you can see, the AeroBurner Pro golf balls are still sold on TaylorMade’s website, but they are last on the list and on a discount. Does this mean they are getting rid of the inventory to replace them with a newer brand soon? Perhaps.
The AeroBurner Pro golf balls to get four and a half out of five stars on the TaylorMade site. On Amazon, however, the reviews are much less kind at three to three and a half, but it looks like these ratings were dragged down by shipping issues, not the balls themselves.
As one 2017 review said: “he is the best ball that I have played with that cost less than 25$.”
