I know I'm late to this thread but, I don't understand everyone's perception that Taylor made has stronger lofts than everyone else. Yes they did start the trend of stronger lofts, 20 years ago! But now everyone has similar lofts as they do.
Taylormade Rocketbladez tour 7 iron has 33.75 loft
Ping i20 7 iron has 33.00 loft
Callaway X Hot Pro 7 iron has 31.00 loft
As you can see, Taylor made has the most loft of any of these! Almost an 8 iron loft compared to the Callaway!
Unless you guys are saying that the lofts they report are not the actual lofts of the clubs...
