Burner Superlaunch Irons


Recommended Posts

  • SPY VIP

Did anyone else just get the email from Golfsmith showing the new Burner Superlaunch Irons? The cavity looks a bit off to me. I play and love the 2009 Burner irons.

Are these GI or SGI? Anyone else think they look a bit goofy?

Now those are SSGI, i.e. Super Super Game Improvement. Yikes!

 

I'm playing the 09 Burners w/ KBS Tours and loving them!! Wow... what a great set of irons.

Current bag: Some Callaway, some Cleveland. Down to 2 OEM's!

Looking at these makes me think of the ugly yellow insert on the new Adams putters. How do these design ideas get to production? Someone at Adams should have said, "Damn, that's nasty."

Seems like TaylorMade is really trying to appeal to a certain market segment here. It's a shame really...TaylorMade still can make a great club, but I think they've gotten lost over the last few years in some bizarre obsession with adding iron distance (even if it means decreasing lofts, and increasing shaft lengths). Most of us carry 8 of the damn things (irons), so there really isn't a pressing need to squeeze an extra 10 yards out of each and every one of them. I'd rather seem TM focus on things like feel and forgiveness, and looks, rather than trying to squeeze an unnecessary 10 yards out of a strange looking iron with a suspect paint job.

 

I tell the guys I work with all the time...I still really like the TM clubs - woods especially, but I've come to think of TaylorMade more as a marketing engine than a golf company.

Maybe you are right. I guess I have 4 years to dump my 09 Burners.

 

Be careful though, that demon 40 comes after you in a hurry.

TM is such a disaster. the rep brought these in the other day and almost gagged when i saw them...uglier and bulkier in person. the red graphic in the cavity is horrendous and empty. such a shame...go back to the days of the rac OS and LT.

Not good. The red does seem too big. How do they get this design so far off? Look at the Adams black irons thread. Those are amazing looking. The TM forged musclebacks are one of my favorite iron heads ever (to look at mind you, I can't hit them for nuthin'). Someone could design a sexy, functional iron. OS was excellent, R7 OK if you don't mind the color. I play the 09 BUrners and like their looks much more than the Burner + or the other models. Maybe the 09's were the exception.

I have a philosophy that every OEM tells their designers to make their super game improvement irons as ugly as possible. I can only reach this theory due to the fact that I haven't seen a good looking super game improvement iron.

These even make the HiBore irons look good to me.

Wow!! That speaks volumes of to how ugly these irons are because the Hi-Bore irons are one of the most atrocious irons ever invented.

Yeah, but they all come with numbered headcovers. IMHO that makes them nicer than these. Plus the Hibore sand wedge is soooo goofy looking that it can make you smile when your ball ends up in the trap.

"Damn, sand, but look at this crazy club lol!"

I think when I tried the Hi-Bore irons I laughed before every shot. I know when I first picked them up the first words out of my mouth were something like...."You have got to be ******* kidding me!"

I had the HiBore XL driver for a while. Liked the club, but my buddies and I got in the habit of shouting HiBore before and after every drive. Couldn't help it. I wanted to buy the irons so we could say it after every shot.

HIBORE!!!!
