TaylorMade's next-generation Burner and new Burner Tour balls
September 21, 2010

TaylorMade are introducing the Burner and Burner Tour balls, promising maximum distance and exceptional feel across a broad range of golfer profiles.

TaylorMade Golf's two new ball models, the next-generation Burner and the all-new Burner Tour, are both designed to deliver exceptional distance and feel to a broad range of players. The Burner ball offers extraordinary distance through a high launch and longer carry, while the Burner Tour’s soft and thin cover promotes softer feel, higher spin and increased control.

“When we designed the Burner and Burner Tour, we developed core formulations that promote maximum velocity, which translates to maximum distance,” said Dean Snell, senior director of golf ball research and development. “To achieve a significant improvement in greenside spin and performance in Burner Tour, we've employed the softest and thinnest two-piece cover of any TaylorMade ball. With the new Burner, the goal was to limit driver-spin and promote maximum carry, which could only be accomplished by combining a soft core and slightly firmer cover.”


REACT Core for fast yet soft performance
Both the Burner and Burner Tour golf balls incorporate TaylorMade’s proprietary REACT Core design to promote exceptionally fast ball speed while maintaining soft performance. Both employ soft core compressions, the Burner at 35 and the Burner Tour at 45. However, the Burner Tour's thinner and softer cover reduces its overall compression below that of Burner. As a result, the Burner Tour delivers incredibly soft feel and added spin around the green.

LDP Dimple technology gives improved lift for greater distance
TaylorMade’s Low-Drag Performance (LDP) aerodynamics have been incorporated into the premium 342 LDP dimple pattern used in both the Burner and Burner Tour, which promotes improved lift for more distance.

Softer but more durable IothaneTM cover
Although the Burner and Burner Tour incorporate slightly different cover properties — the Burner employs an IothaneTM 60D cover while the Burner Tour employs an even softer Iothane 57D cover — both are exceptionally soft and resilient while also offering outstanding durability and shear-resistance.

The Burner will be available in early October at a RRP of £19.99 / €25.00 per dozen, and the Burner Tour from mid-October with a RRP of £22.99 / €30.00 per dozen.
