The Rescue Mid is the replacement for the original rescue club from TaylorMade that started off a new category of clubs.

Although not as good out of the rough as it's predecessor, the Rescue Mid is much better from the tee or off the fairway. It provides much more forgiveness with it's wider and deeper head design.

The deeper steel head is a bit more wood than iron and as a result the ball flight is a little higher. The shaft is a little shorter than the equivalent fairway wood, but with some of the lower lofted options you can drop the 2, 3 or even 4 iron from your bag.

The contact feels good and generally it is a good club, but looks wise we think it could be better.

The Rescue Mid also comes in a TP version aimed firmly for the better player. The TP version has a reduced offset with a lower centre of gravity that produces a much more penetrating flight than the standard club and better players will like the aggressive feel from the clubhead. You really feel you can play whatever shot you like with this club.

I bought one of these in the 2Hybrid off the consignment rack at my local golf retail store. I was in need of a replacement to my 3 wood and figured I’d give it a shot for the low price. It came with the stock steel shaft. I was beyond satisfied with the results of this Rescue club. I typically use this off the tee when I need to lay up or hit tight fairways. It is easy to hit off the fairway and works well out of the rough. I’ve been so pleased with how this club performs that I am searching the internet for a 3H now to replace my 3-iron.

I have just managed to acquire a 2 and 4 Rescue Mid clubs making my set up with the 3 and 5 I possess - exceedingly happy I am. 75 years old been playing for close on 47 years and I do not use driver or 3 wood only my rescue clubs - looking forward to using the 2 and 4 as I reach about 220 yards with my 3 Rescue wood. Thank you Taylormade

I found this TaylorMade Rescue No2 club to be smart looking and well matched between the graphite regular shaft and the head for this 17 degree sample. The swing was very confidence inspiring. Hitting the ball was very forgiving from a number of lies and the performance was consistant and penetrating - useful when facing a strong wind. Also usefull as a chipper from just off the green . Overall the Taylormade Rescue is a great club for me, though a bit pricey at the full RPP but I got a great deal using the Golfalot price comparison service!!!!
