TaylorMade AeroBurner Soft Golf Balls
TaylorMade AeroBurner Soft is the company’s softest golf ball aimed directly at players with slower swing speeds who need a ball that compresses more easily. TaylorMade’s goal for the AeroBurner Soft is to provide a distance ball that will still stop and spin.
The TaylorMade AeroBurner Soft is a two-piece construction golf ball. The core is made of a soft compound to allow compression and promote ball speed to attain extra distance at lower swing speeds. A proprietary lothane cover — along with a low-drag 342 dimple design to promote higher launch — provides the soft, sticky touch necessary for optimal green-side performance.
Mike Ferris, TaylorMade VP of Golf Balls & Accessories on the AeroBurner Soft:
“AeroBurner Soft combines the speed and distance off the tee that golfers need with the soft green-side stopping power that they crave. This ball is a distance ball that actually stops. It’s for most golfers who only hit four greens in a round of golf. This can be a real par saver.”
TaylorMade AeroBurner Soft Review
TaylorMade isn’t lying when they say that this is the softest golf ball they make, and that’s most evident from the tee. The AeroBurner Soft will not appeal to anybody in the 100+ mph swing speed range. At 100+ mph the AeroBurner Soft feels like it was designed by R&D at Jet-Puffed. It is very reluctant to turn and shape on drives, which is great if your’re just trying to keep the ball in play, but not so great if you’re looking for precision.
The long irons is a place where the Aeroburner Soft really proves its worth. The ability to hoist the ball high into the air with a low-lofted iron was much appreciated, and that high trajectory made it sit quickly. That’s not easy to do with the 4 and 5 iron category.
The AeroBurner Soft plays as expected and as claimed with the driver and irons. Green-side, however, it falls just short in regards to spin and control. If the AeroBurner Soft was a corporate employee under evaluation, the performance review would read, “employee adequately performs.” It doesn’t underperform, it’s not a superstar. It’s adequate, and that’s due to the lothane cover. No matter how you slice it, it doesn’t compare to urethane.
So, should you buy them? Well, you should most definitely try them. At $19.99 a dozen, the AeroBurner Soft is worth testing for yourself, you’re going to have a hard time finding more compression in its class.
