What is the best set of irons made by Taylormade ?


Recommended Posts

I do own a set of TM Rocketballz with graphite senior shafts , also a set of Ping G30 reshafted with UST MAMIYA  Recoil Smac wrap reg flex shafts . A set of Callaway steelhead XR’s reshafted with UST MAMIYA recoil reg flex ( favourite set right now ) . I recently got my hands on a set of PXG pulls , Mitsubishi MMT A flex shafts . So in order to try the MMT shafts I went to our local golf emporium, Caddy Shed , and went through the used bin and found a TM R9 6 iron . I brought it home and promptly inserted the appropriate MMT shaft in it . I then set up my in garage hitting bay with my Voice caddy sc200 and did a comparison of my four 6 irons. It turns out that I hit them all in the low 160 yards except the R9 with the MMT shafts , it went in the mid 150 range . I really liked the look of the R9 at setup and I liked the feel of the shaft too . Well the tinkerer that I am is thinking about maybe hardstepping the MMT’s into a set of R9’s or whatever iron set shows up that I might like . But the next step is putting the 7 iron shaft in the R9 head with an extension to 6 iron length .

I started playing golf at 14 ; my first set of irons were TaylorMade Tour Preferred TD's.  I played these beautiful blades all the way into college golf.  I currently swing i210's with Steel Fibers and love them.  But I do still have a set of TP TD's that I play with every once in awhile for fun.  I now work in the equipment industry so I do have the chane to try all the new irons, with the P790's  being my favorite from TM.

I switch out my wedges often depending on course conditions. Loft, Bounce and Make vary.

The Burner 2.0's when I bought them were so easy to hit, well balanced.  I played them for 10 years.

This post has been open, but I'm just now stumbling across it, so I'll chime in...

I've been a Taylormade iron player, going back to the original Bubble Burner Oversize irons in the 90's.  I then went to RAC LT's, R7 CGB, Burner 2.0, M6 and most recently the P790 (2021).  I've also hit my son-in-law's the Rocketballz.  The R7 CGB was a incredibly long iron, with great forgiveness - but felt like a rock, the Burner 2.0 was probably my favorite iron due to good combination of distance and forgiveness, but again - didn't feel great.  The P790 is the total package, it's long, feels amazing and is surprisingly forgiving for a players distance iron.  I couldn't be happier with it and would definitely recommend it and say I've played enough of the models to have a somewhat experienced opinion.
