PRLog - Sep. 6, 2011 - Last year, Titleist created the MB Forged Irons. One year later, TaylorMade designed another MB Forged, so I think there is a need to make a comparision with the two in order to find the similarities and differences between them.
Taylormade TP MB Forged Irons
Titleist MB Forged Irons
Forged from 1020 carbon steel, the Titleist MB Forged Irons is a new muscle back blade design that appears to have mass reduced below the top line and repositioned closer to the sole. This appears to be an attempt to make it a more user friendly design with a more forgiveness in the hitting zone and perhaps even a slightly higher ball flight. It's till a classic blade design very clean and simple so expect most of Titleist's PGA players to be sporting this model on the big Tour.
Available in both left and right handed models and include #3 iron through to PW, the MB 710 Forged come standard with the high performance, tour-proven True Temper Dynamic Gold shaft for weight feedback and shot control, and the Titleist Tour Velvet grip for soft feel and traction.
Taylormade Tour Preferred MB Forged Irons
As one of the three Tour Preferred models, the Tour Preferred Forged MB (MB stands of Muscle Back) are all about feel and control. There is no carbon composite badge here to alter the feel created at impact, although to make the TP MB irons appeal to more players, a touch of offset has been added to the hosel.
The heads of the Taylormade Tour Preferred MB Forged Irons are slightly smaller from heel to toe than the TP MC, but the par area, where the face meets the hosel, has been made much smaller. The reason for this is that most accomplished players want to see the face coming right out of hosel.
Through custom ordering, you will be able to build your own eight-iron set from the different offerings. For example, you could chose to play TP CBs in your 3-6 irons and TP MCs in your 7-PW. Each of the new Tour Preferred Forged irons will come standard with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts in three shaft flexes (R, S, X).
To put it in a nutshell, though being different in several aspacts, both of the two golf clubs have a muscle back design with soft feel. The outstanding shaft and performance make them preferred by the best skilled players.
