TaylorMade AeroBurner Mini Driver Review

More reviews coming from Golf Central in Brisbane
@TaylorMadeTour

michael jirgensons says:

Rick, if struggling with a normal driver would it be more beneficial to use
a 440 cc driver rather than a mini, and then a traditional 3 wood? 

Sgt Pepper says:

Don’t see the point in it,surely a driver is easier to hit with its bigger
face? & as u just proved its difficult 2 hit off the deck,I have the 16.5
HL tp to which is so easy 2 hit off the deck..

Mike Reiter says:

I think for a higher handicap golfer suck as myself that club would be a
replacement for a driver. I tend to struggle with my driver off the tee.
Great video Rick.

Davide Ciccoritti says:

It’s a driver! A Mini Driver. Not a 3 wood. I believe if someone finds
drivers difficult to hit, they might opt for a Mini Driver and maybe a 3 or
5 wood. I believe the concept is legit and can help many high handicappers
hit it better and longer of the tee.

Michael Rolton says:

Most players (me included) struggle to hit a standard three wood off the
deck, so this would be a tee club where accuracy is required. Also support
dzs29 on AeorBurner mini vs AeroBurner fw.

Paul Brunt says:

Do you think you need to have a faster swing speed to get full reward from
this club. I’m thinking about testing this as a driver replacement, but my
swing speed with the driver is only 95mph. I’m fairly consistent with my
current 3wood but have always struggled with the driver.

Simon Daish says:

Starting to seriously think about one of these. I hit my fairways great but
just can’t hit a driver to save my life! 

bibilolo78 says:

You are a pro and you strugle with that…so For the rest of us (mid to
high handicap)a 5 wood of the deck is good enough

With a tee it s a bomber!!

Nice review sir


Clay Fleming says:

If you struggle to hit it off of the deck I think there is no hope for most
average golfers. Also, it does not seem to carry any further than the 15*
aeroburner 3 wood you tested. I do not see a place for this club in the bag
of most golfers. For tight courses I could see packing the 12* in place of
a driver, but would want a TP with a 70g shaft as the 60 is going to be too
light in a shorter club.

Hacker2024 says:

Very fast driver…. 

JAG sixtyfive says:

If people are struggling with their Driver because of the length of the
shaft, there is a cheaper solution than this. Shorten the shaft by an inch
of their current Driver, and add head weight to maintain swing weight.
Keeps the forgiveness of the larger Driver head but adds accuracy of the
shorter shaft. This Club is simply a product of manufacturers making Driver
shafts too long in the first place. 

Liam Hale says:

I’m long off the tee but hit less than 50% of fairways when using my
driver. I use the sldr mini 12 degree along with a sldr 5 wood cranked to
16.5 degree and my scores have tumbled. Rather sacrifice 20 yards off the
tee for 2 OBs a round!

Michael Lindo says:

Thanks, Rick. Can you do comparison videos with the aeroburner mini vs the
sldr mini and the aeroburner mini vs the aeroburner fwy? That would be
really helpful, as I’m considering the new aeroburner miniwhen it comes
out. Thanks and keep up the good work! 

Gareth Spooner says:

Can’t see it ever replacing a 3Wood! It would be a great replacement for a
player who hits down on their driver but needs a smaller head with a 12*
of loft with shorter shaft so it will play like a stronger driving 3Wood to
help hitting more fairway’s.

Lee (formerly Cahnt) says:

Rick described it as a good option for a golfer who can hit driver 300
yards but struggles for accuracy. Well that’s Rick. But it didn’t really
seem to help him with accuracy. He still hit it too far left it appeared.

Cace Smith says:

I’m not a fan of these mini-drivers. Prefer a shallow face 3 wood. Easier
to hit both off the tee AND off the deck for me.

Cornwall1888 says:

Why don’t they just call it a 2 wood?

I think a driver is easier to hit than a 3 wood because of the face size,
if I was struggling with the driver I’d just cut it down.

l33ble says:

I have the rbz 3 wood and I find the head size a little large for hitting
off the deck, but love it off a tee.
I have now got an SLDR Mini that I will use off the tee for accuracy and I
have cranked my 5 wood down to a 4, which I will use off the deck.

MrJdk720 says:

@RickShielsPGA can you try the tp version of this in 12 degrees

Liam Mckeown says:

“I normally carry a 3 wood just under that 150 mark” haha you need to get
in the gym Rick!

Ryan Delannoy says:

Rick, please don’t call it “the mini D” anymore haha.

fredrik bragstad says:

What if you try TaylorMade SLDR minidriver against Aero Burner minidriver ?
whether there is any difference between the two golf clubs .

Fredrik Bach says:

Loved Minnie Driver in Good Will Hunting

edleyfinning says:

The Mini D? Please don’t call it that Rick

Alan Hooper says:

It’s a two wood then!

sasquatchtour says:

I really liked the idea of a control club off the tee. In tournament play
having the forgiveness of a driver and the control of a 3 wood seemed like
the perfect solution for tighter holes. However, I could never get the mini
drivers to out perform my 3 wood due to higher spin rates. I don’t know if
that’s a common problem or if it’s just me but I had to use a 12 degree
mini driver just to get the same distance as my 15 degree sldr 3wood making
the mini driver less versatile as it was more difficult off the deck and to
low of a launch to hold a green. 

ryanomillar says:

More loft needed rick? As the CG is further forward than the sldr??
