Taylormade Tour Preferred irons? Suggestions or reviews?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello all, i currently play with the Cleveland Cg7 Tour Black Pearl irons. I like them, but I would like to upgrade to a new set of irons because when I bought them, they were used. 

 

Im currently looking at the Tour preferred irons from taylormade but im not sure if i should go with the MC, MB, or CB? As far as I know, the CB is for the higher handicappers then MC for middle and MB for low handicaps. (I could be wrong). Does anyone own a set of these clubs and suggest them? I've hit them all and Im leaning towards the Muscle Cavity (MC).

I just bought a set if the taylormade mc irons today. Got the lies adjusted and larger grips put on. I hit them on the range after and I've never hit the ball better or more consistently. Highly recommended.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy them and how much did you pay? I cant find any stores around me that carry them :/

I got them at golfers warehouse and they were the demo model so 500 dollars and then I paid for larger grips.

The TP (CB, MC, MB) clubs were discontinued, will find them on eBay and stores that sell pre-owned clubs.  The TP line was replaced by the R11's and RBZ.

Actually, only the CB and MB irons were discontinued. The MC irons are still on the Taylormade website. Also, to the OP, the TP irons are all for lower handicaps.

Also, I'm pretty sure the MB irons are on websites such as Golfsmith and TGW.

I had them briefly earlier this year.  I bought the CB's used but in great condition.  I bought them because I heard good things about them and because I was improving my game and getting better, I needed to go to a stiff shaft (my first set of irons were TM Burner Plus but were regular flex shafts). 

 

I only had the TM Tour Preferred CB irons for a few weeks though....I bought them in late January of 2013.  I needed stiffer shafts.  The clubs themselves were fine but the staffs were too stiff for me.  Thus instead of paying a lot of money to reshaft and because they have a great resale value, and because I got a great deal on them to begin with, I was able to trade them in at GG while only taking like a $20 loss.  I then tried out irons and ended up getting the TM R11 irons.  Their stock stiff shaft was a KBS shaft which I liked a lot better than the Dynamic Gold stiff shafts that were in the Tour Preferred.

 

I loved the way the TP looked and when the shafts fit my game on the R11's, I got them right away since the R11's look a lot like the TP.  I have been playing with the R11's since February of 2013.  I like them a lot.  My game has continued to improve as well. 

 

My advice to the OP:  make sure you try them out before you buy them.  The heads of the club are fine but make sure they have the right shaft for you as not all shafts are the same (meaning that the stiff Dynamic Gold 300 were much stiffer than the KBS Tour stiff shafts).  It may not make a difference for you but for me it made a huge difference.  Hope this helps.  Good luck!
