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!

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
