Burner Superlaunch Irons


Recommended Posts

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!"

That Hibore Iron does exactly what it is supposed to do. Help the "Iron Challenged" with iron play. It may look like poo, but it is effective. I'm sure the SUPERLAUNCH will be much the same, ugly but effective.

i agree...the HiBores are far better than the SuperLaunch irons. the new HB3's are better looking than last years HiBore and they slimmed them down a bit.

New HiBore irons???????

:lol: :lol: :D :D

Got to go to the shop today. Not being nasty, I am honestly curious about how they look.

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.

 

Yes, the 09 Burner's ARE the exception. I have them and they are great irons. Especially at address. They do wonders with shading to give the visual appearance that the topline is thinner than it is. Absolute wonders.

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

Did they look at the the 09 designer and say "Your club doesn't really meet the TaylorMade image. Pack your desk."

My guess is no, with the adverts and promotions for the 09 burners still. Free 6 irons returned again.

Maybe it is just a lesson in appreciating diversity in appearance. Not every person is beautiful, but they have value.

{Still ain't buying these irons though}

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.

 

 

I'll agree with that... with my handicap, and playing style, I should be looking for SGI irons, but every set I look at will get me laughed off the course...

 

Sure maybe they are super forgiving, but I'd rather change my swing and learn to hit GI clubs better, than swing those in public...

Oh I would agree. Although you can easily rock some PING G5's, G10's or some older model Callaway Big Bertha's and they look just fine. Heck, even the Mizuno MX900's look sweet.

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!!!!

 

I don't think I would waste the money just to be able to say that, plus you would have to look at them before and after every shot which would only downgrade your confidence and status in life.

Do they have the Inverted Cone that seem to stick out of all of Taylor Made's Irons?

It doesn't look like it. Here is the link to GPPgolf with some more photos. $799 too.

Oh I am sure it is there, you just can't see it for the hideous looking graphics and things in the cavity that are probably hiding it.
