TaylorMade Aeroburner Pro
By S. Dee Davis
The new TaylorMade Aeroburner Pro ($27/dozen) is engineered to explode off the face faster, stay in the air longer and go flat-out farther, without skimping on feel or control. The extra speed comes from the high-energy REACT core that stores and releases energy with incredible efficiency. The extra hang-time comes from a gravity-defying, computer-modeled 342 HIGH-LIFT, LOW-DRAG dimple pattern. The spin-control and soft feel come from the interface of the Spin Mantle and proprietary Iothane cover. For the value, the Aeroburner Pro played like a more expensive golf ball, and delivered great performance for the value. The Iothane cover feels much like a cast urethane cover, but seemed to be more durable. Our testers had impressive distance and felt they could stop the ball effectively with long irons, due to the higher launch and softer cover. Overall, the Aeroburner exceeded our expectations.
Optimal spin control
Iothane cover not as optimal as cast urethane
