Product Watch – TaylorMade Reveals M CGB Irons

TaylorMade MCGB Irons

TaylorMade Golf’s selection of irons continues to grow.

The company has announced the release of new M CGB irons – targeted at the player looking for both distance and forgiveness.

With a high COR (coefficient of restitution) and a super low centre of gravity, the company says this is their “fastest iron set to date.”

“The CGB name is iconic and represents some of the longest and most forgiving irons we’ve ever created at TaylorMade. The concept has now been re-created with all our latest technology to bring never-before-seen performance to golfers of all skill levels,” says Tomo Bystedt, Senior Director, Iron Product Creation.

In the M CGB, a super game improvement iron, TaylorMade threw all their key technologies at the design. Speed Pocket, Face Slots, 360° undercut, Inverted Cone were all utilized along with Tungsten weighting to increase the Moment of Inertia (MOI) and overall stability.

Similar to previous distance models, like the M2, a balance between strong lofts and trajectory was achieved to better control the gapping between clubs and having both an optimal ball flight for distance while not ignoring the need for an effective landing angle.

That means golfers with slower swing speeds get more height with a softer landing.

It sounds like recipe that will appeal to a certain segment of the market and we look forward to testing them in the near future.

The TaylorMade M CGB irons will be available at retail on September 29. They will be offered in 4-PW, AW, or SW (8-pieces) with Nippon NS Pro 840 steel shafts ($1,599.99 CAD) or UST Recoil 460 ES graphite shafts ($1,699.99 CAD) with a TaylorMade Dual Feel grip. Additionally, a variety of custom shaft and grip options are also available.
