TaylorMade Golf announced on Monday that is has released three new sets of irons under the Tour Preferred moniker. The lines -- MB, MC and CB -- are all designed for the better player that wants workability over forgiveness in their iron.
The irons, which are all now available at retailers, made their PGA Tour debut last week at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
The MB (muscleback) iron is a true blade, forged from 1025 carbon steel. The irons are compact, with a thin topline and minimal offset, as well a minimalist sole.
The MC (muscle cavity) iron is a combination of the benefits of a muscleback and a cavity-back. The small cavity improves MOI and stability for the player, while the iron otherwise maintains the playability of the blade. The head, topline and sole are slightly larger than the MB, while the 3-7 irons have TaylorMade's Speed Pocket for improved distance and transfer of energy to the ball at impact.
The CB (cavity back) iron is not a game-improvement iron, but offers aspects found in that family of club, particularly in the longer irons. As the numbers get higher on the irons in the bag, the heads are shaped more like a true player's iron. Offset, head size and the top line get bigger through the bag.
The Tour Preferred MB ($1099), Tour Preferred MC ($999) and Tour Preferred CB ($899) are now available in stores and online.
