TaylorMade Tour Preferred irons

Published:

The nation's better golfers better prepare to get VERY excited about the launch of the new TaylorMade Tour Preferred irons.

Why do we say that? Because the TG test team took delivery of the Taylormade Tour Preferred iron several days ago in order to bring you a world first review of the Taylormade Tour Preferred iron. And the feedback from our testers has been tremendous.

Instruction editor Carly Cummins, off a very tidy 3 HCP, was a big fan of the Tour Preferred Irons, especially the forgiveness that they offered consdiering they are a club clearly aimed at the better player. Unlike lots of "better-player" irons, the Tour Preferred irons didn't punish the off-centre hit too severely, making them all-round winner with our resident better player. Check out the video of Carly in action below!

Although the Tour Preferred iron isn't the biggest iron to look at the technology packed into it somehow makes it relatively easy to hit - and when you do connect properly feedback is simply superb.

Taylormade say that the take-up of the TaylorMade Tour Preferred iron on Tour has been high and it's easy to see why on hitting it; those guys will love the fact that they get the feedback of a traditional blade with the forgiveness of a modern golf club.

So how have TaylorMade achieved this? Light and long shafts, unsurpassed forgivness and easy launch technologies have all been stuffed into the Tour Preferred iron but with a thin topline and shorter blade length from toe to heel.

A shallow undercut cavity redistributes weight to the heel and toe to increase stability and promote a solid feel on impact. An inverted cone spacing has been created at the back of the face to help increase forgiveness on off centre hits, while a cool looking 'vibration management' badge has been fitted to the back of the club to minimise bad feedback and give you a sweeter feel.

Expect to pay £599 for steel and £699 for graphite shaft sets when they hit the shops this autumn.
