The 620 MB irons are a one-piece forged muscleback for the ultimate in feel and shot making and have a new brushed finish.
TaylorMade P730 Irons
A milled channel across the head moves mass away from the centre to increase forgiveness on high or low strikes while heel and toe MOI has been kept the same to maintain maximum workability. The design team’s primary objective with the P730 iron was to retain the features that were iconic to the Tour Preferred MB ’14 – notably sole camber, offset flow, sole radius and hosel length – while at the same time improving its performance in two subtle ways; shaping and mass properties.
Cobra King Forged MB
Designed with feedback from PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler, the King Forged MB irons come with 10-25 carbon steel heads that have been forged five times to give a soft yet solid feel. The finish is super stylish in either diamonised black or chrome.
