TAYLORMADE UNLEASHES NEW MCGB IRONS
Marketed as being like having ‘a bag full of drivers’, the re-invention of the much-missed CGB (Centre of Gravity Back) iron has been thrown every conceivable bit of TaylorMade iron technology in a bid to create the ultimate power tool for the golfer who values distance above all other factors when it comes to choosing an iron.
Featuring a sub-2mm thick face from 4-iron to sand wedge, the super game improvement MCGB irons are designed to push the limits on ball speed, while ultra-low centre of gravity placement produces a combination of high trajectory and optimised spin rates to produce maximum carry and distance.
The cast stainless steel head features a combination of materials, including four tungsten weights in the toe, which creates a highly stable clubhead, while a speed slot in the sole, and face slots either side of the grooves, provide forgiveness where it is needed most and increase ball speeds on heel and toe miss-hits for improved consistency.
TaylorMade’s Inverted Cone Technology also makes its presence felt, with the cone moving progressively nearer to the toe as the set progresses from short to long irons.
The entire clubhead has been fine-tuned for sound and feel, with the badge located directly behind the face specially designed to dampen vibrations and soften feel at impact.
The MCGB irons come with a choice of Nippon N.S. PRO 840 steel shafts or UST Recoil 460 ES graphite shafts, while the ladies options is a UST Recoil 450 ES.
They go on sale on October 16, priced at £849/£1,099 (st/gr).
