Tried & Tested: TaylorMade's new RocketBallz
by Carly Cummins
February 17, 2012

Rocket by name Rocket by nature!

I'm the sort of golfer who tends to find a golf ball they like and stick with it for a long time, despite anything else being introduced. So I have managed to resist the urge to switch every time a new ball has come onto the market over the last few years, preferring to stick with the ball I trust and which gives me reliable performance. But TaylorMade has just turned that on its head with the RocketBallz. Right from the very first hit it impressed and literally rocketed through the air, no wonder they gave it this name. Not only is this ball noticeably longer than any other I have used, and I'm talking a good 10 yards off the tee, quite significant at my handicap and level, it also has an amazing buttery soft feel off the clubface and chips with check and precision.

So what's the secret? It's actually hidden deep inside the ballThe ball speed and distance gains come from a combination of what TaylorMade call their REACT core technology and a new SPEEDMANTLE for increased velocity and added spin for all swing speeds. The great feel is courtesy of a special IOTHANE cover which coupled with the Speedmantle material give the ball incredible bite and hold on the greens.

TaylorMade may be lesser known in the ball market than some of the big brands but I'm convinced that this ball is going to be a big hit, quite literally! There's no target golfer in mind, just everyone who is seeking more distance and shot-making confidence. The best part is the price. The RocketBallz are really good value - just £26.99 a dozen.
