If you’ve been waiting awhile for new Tour Preferred irons from TaylorMade than you’ll be very happy today.
The three new models of Tour Preferred Irons are available at retail immediately.
Targeted at “players” the Tour Preferred MB, MC, and CB are the first update to the TaylorMade Tour Preferred iron line in several years.
“We don’t believe you can call yourself a great iron company unless you create irons that great players want to play. Irons that meet a Tour pro’s requirements for look, feel, sound and workability,” said Sean Toulon, Executive Vice President. “That’s why these clubs bare the name Tour Preferred. The head has to look right from every angle. The leading edge and sole have to react a certain way with the turf. We’ve taken each of these things into careful account to make these irons especially appealing to better players.”
At the most elite end of the trio is the Tour Preferred MB, featuring the smallest head and a muscle-back design. It’s a pure blade with minimal offset. The heads are forged from 1025 carbon steel and a 3-PW in the stock KBS shafts and Tour Velvet grips will run you $1199 CDN.
In a slightly more configuring design you have the Tour Preferred MC. The feature a shape reminiscent of the blades but with a shallow cavity design to help redistribute mass and increase the moment of inertia. The loger irons feature TaylorMade Speed Pocket slot in the sole to help promote faster ball speeds. Retail for a 3-PW with the stock KBS shafts and Tour Velvet grips will be $1099 CDN.
Completing the triad of new Tour Preferred model is the CB, a full cavity back model. They, too, feature the Speed Pocket in the 3 to 7 irons. The company claims it is one of the longest player’s irons that they have made. They feature progressive offset, with slightly more in the long irons. The set also progressives in head size form larger in the long irons to more compact in the short irons. The CB’s will run $999 a set in the stock configuration.
