Taylormade Tour Preferred irons? Suggestions or reviews?

8 posts in this topic

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.

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!

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
