Taylormade RBZ Speedlite Golf Club Set Review 2021

Taylormade has made some of the most well-known golf clubs in recent history.

Their sets have become the stuff of legend. So much so that some of them seem inaccessible or too prestigious for the average golfer.

However, you don’t have to settle for a beginner’s set of Taylormade golf clubs to get the performance they are known for.

Case in point: the Taylormade RBZ Speedlite Golf Club set.

Taylormade RBZ Speedlite

“The Taylormade RBZ Speedlite has something to offer for golfers of every level. Taylormade packed this set with forgiveness, distance and accuracy features.”

The Taylormade RBZ Speedlite Golf Club set comes with a driver, fairway wood, rescue hybrid, irons 6-9, pitching wedge, sand wedge and a putter.

The $1,200 price tag may scare some people off but keep in mind that the set comes complete with a premium cart bag with a 14-way top divider and 8 storage pockets. Plus, the clubs alone are worth the price.

What you notice first about the Taylormade RBZ Speedlite Golf Club set is that it looks fantastic. You can tell right away that it is a premium set based on the looks alone.

Then, when you pull out the driver you will feel how lightweight it is. The entire set was designed to be lightweight but the driver especially feels comfortable and wieldy in the hands.

The woods were designed for high-arcing shots. They provide plenty of flex to give you the distance you need from the deck too.

The great thing about the rescue hybrids is that they’re versatile. You can use them off the tee, from the deck or in the rough. Of course, they are lightweight but have strategic weighting in the head to promote faster swing speeds.

The Taylormade RBZ Speedlite includes irons 6-9. These are traditional cavity-back irons but what isn’t so traditional is the unique sole shape. It has multiple facets and edges to help smooth out turf interaction.

The sand and pitching wedges cannot be overstated. They provide amazing feel and spin control even on tough lies.

The putter that comes with the Taylormade RBZ Speedlite set performs especially well on long putts thanks to the forward roll orientation of the face.

“The Taylormade RBZ Speedlite set delivers a good combination of performance and forgiveness with almost every club.”

Taylormade RBZ – First Impressions & Club Breakdowns

Overall the Taylormade RBZ Speedlite Golf Club set is versatile.

Players of multiple skill-levels will be able to benefit from it, perfect for beginners but high performing for even mid handicappers. The quality is on another level from many beginner/intermediate sets.

They are accurate and some of the clubs feel simply amazing.

Driver

The driver features Taylormade’s signature Speed Pocket which, is a trench bored behind the face to allow it to hinge freely.

This produces incredible ball speed. It is plenty forgiving too with an oversized 460CC titanium head.

Woods

The Taylormade RBZ Speedlite set comes with a 3 wood and a 5 wood.

Both are outfitted with the Speed Pocket so they boast impressive distance. The Speed Pocket also increases forgiveness on low-face shots.

Hybrids

The 4 and 5 hybrids can be deployed almost anywhere on the course.

As you can imagine, they are lightweight and they swing fast.

They also ably take the place of the 4 and 5 irons that are missing from this set.

Irons

If you are in need of irons that launch high,  these are the ones for you.

Taylormade has concentrated weight in the soles of these irons to achieve higher-arcing shots.

That coupled with the unique sole geometry helps these irons perform well on any lie.

Wedges

The sand and pitching wedges feature a classic C sole grind.

The C grind is the most versatile and can be used for a wide variety of shots.

However, the best thing about the wedges are the deep grooves that give you superb spin control on approaches.

Putter

The putter (in a modern mallet head shape) features what Taylormade calls Pure Roll grooves.

The grooves are set at a 45 degree angle to promote forward roll which, is why they are especially handy on long putts.

Shafts

You get a choice between graphite and steel shafts in the irons, ensuring the clubs are perfect for average to fast swing speeds but also for seniors and slower swing speeds.
