How to Adjust a TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver (GUIDE)


Is The TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver Adjustable?

Yes, the TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver is adjustable. It has a 3-degree range of adjustability, up and down 1.5 degrees from the stated loft with 0.5-degree increments.

You can adjust the driver according to your needs and preferences.

Pro Tip: You will have to purchase a wrench along with your TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver to open the screw of your driver for adjustment.

 

When Did the TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver Come Out?

The TaylorMade JetSpeed driver was launched on December 13, 2013, in the United States.

With four lofts and a design that increases ball speed while reducing the spin, the driver covers large distances.

Most golfers were of very high opinion of the new driver in town. Being a well-known golf brand, TaylorMade received a lot of acclaim for the JetSpeed driver.

Trivia: The JetSpeed model is the pioneer TaylorMade driver. It has the Speed Pocket Technology that lowers the spin rate and leads to more distance and better ball flight.

How to Adjust the TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver Settings

You can easily adjust the TaylorMade JetSpeed driver with these steps.

Step 1: Adjusting the Loft

The first step to adjust your driver is to focus on the driver’s loft and then turn towards the lie and the angle:

  • Open the shaft from your driver by opening the head screw with a wrench
  • Turn the wrench anti-clockwise to open the screw
  • Remove the shaft and look at the markings. They use an off-center bore for the screw
  • There will be two dashes between standard and +/- 1.5°.Adjust the position based on your preference.

Pro Tip: We suggest you focus on the loft setting, as it determines the settings for the lie and face angles. If you fail to get the loft right, you may not get the desired lie or face angle.

 

Step 2: Changing the Lie and Face Angle

You can tune the lie and the face angle after adjusting the loft. There are several positions from which you can choose to switch your ball flight the way you want.

  • To get a neutral lie, get the head loft closest to your actual required loft
  • Tighten your head screw back again
  • If you move the loft sleeve to one click, reduce the lie and face angles accordingly

How to Use the TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver Adjustment Tool

An authentic TaylorMade product, the JetSpeed Driver adjustment tool can be purchased separately and used for both the JetSpeed and SLDR drivers. You use the tool by moving the weight farther from the toe or heel.

Follow these simple steps to use the adjustment tool:

  • Adjust the screw in the heel with the wrench
  • For SLDR, you need to move the weight by making it loose using the wrench
  • The more you move the weight from the heel, the more it’ll lead to draw
  • The more you move the weight from the toe, the more it will lead to a fade

 

TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver Weight Adjustment

The TaylorMade JetSpeed driver does not have the option of weight adjustment, which helps you change your ball flight or trajectory.

Pro Tip: If you are looking for drivers that allow you to adjust your ball flight and your trajectory for spins and distances, go for options that come with weights.

Drivers with weights can be adjusted easily with a little research, and you can up your game without any issues.

 

What is the Difference between a TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver and the SLDR Driver?

There are a few differences between the JetSpeed and SLDR that you can observe. The TaylorMade JetSpeed driver has a shallower clubhead when compared to the SLDR Driver.

Both JetSpeed and SLDR have a low, forward center of gravity. Both the drivers are a good fit and have low spins, high launches, and good lofts. However, the JetSpeed is not as adjustable as the SLDR.

 

Adjustability

The main difference is that the JetSpeed is nowhere close to being as adjustable as the SLDR. If you need a driver which can be adjusted, go for the SLDR and not the JetSpeed.

 

Feel and Sound

The JetSpeed feels whippier as compared to the SLDR, but both have identical impacts. Both the drivers have a similar sound.

 

Performance

The Speed Pocket in JetSpeed increases distance while lowering the spin. The dispersion for the JetSpeed is around 15 yards, while that for SLDR is less than 10.

 

Distance

SLDR is longer in terms of carrying but falls short in total distance. On the other hand, the JetSpeed has slightly lesser carry but a longer total distance.

 

What Is The Max Distance of the TaylorMade JetSpeed Driver?

The driver can cover a maximum distance of 251.40 yards.

The TaylorMade JetSpeed has received a lot of appreciation from golfers, especially for improving their distance. The Speed Pocket helps you reach long distances.

Pro Tip: If you want to increase the distance, lengthen your swing and go for a fast backswing with more intensity and speed. This will help you go long for longer!
