    Literature doesn’t say whether LE or not. Just Milled Soles and Leading edges on all irons. 1025 steel. $250 per stick. But the shocker to me is • “Precise tungsten weight placement engineered to improve trajectory control and promote a deeper feel at impact” More offset than expected 2.3 mm in 3 iron. Offset 3 iron and tungsten sounds like Tiger is accepting a little GI in his irons. Visible milling marks on sole not sure about that look..on the sales brochure they appear to be a satin finish not the real shiny chrome that are in the photos seen here in bags

    My guess would be no this isn’t going to be in the standard line up

    Probably right, as most dealers are contacting better customers to reserve initial release which sounds like limited. $75 more a stick than P730s.

    Wrong. My rep said he’s only getting 10-15 sets. I’m trying to make sure I get one of them!!

    I hope that these wind up in the bags of people who will play them and not on a wall somewhere or in the plastic waiting a few years for them to appreciate in value. These deserve to be played.

    Wonder where the tungsten is hidden. Certainly well hidden. Maybe behind the milled line on the back that may vary location up or down by each iron..

    So since this is phase 1, are they going to release phase 2 when he moves to that iron? I’m just wondering how long he will be using this exact iron

    Probably dependent on reps. area. Rep. with big areas (by sales not acres) may get 10-15 sets to divide among dealers by sales volume. Smaller areas may get 3-5 sets as an example. I know a large shop near me has all the sets they are going to get in May spoken for already..

    I didn’t build them so I can’t say exactly. But I know some toe side. Maybe heel or sole too ?



    Couple people here who know more than I that can say for sure where. All I’ve seen are a few in progress pics that aren’t public from times gone by.



    So I’m not going to claim something I don’t know the exact details of. But I do know , point of fact , that hey have tungsten in them.





    As for his past irons. His titleist blades aren’t even kissing cousins to the retail 681. Not even close.

    Tiger has used irons with tungsten in various locations towards toe/sole per iron for many years according to Mike Taylor. This was done to fine tune headweights and center of gravity location to fit Tiger's preferences. You are correct that Tiger has a strong dislike for weight towards hosel side. Not surprised that marketing for OEMs did not mention expensive, labor intensive tweaks to products that were not offered to public, preferring to let consumers believe buying product like favorite players at retail.

    People can claim this all they want, but the fact that no pictures or detailed information exists on arguably the most documented and followed golfer in the world regarding equipment he played. Back in his Mizuno and Titleist days nothing was ever said or documented. There were many pictures of his raw ground pre finish Titleist irons in Japan both the 841 and T (681) model that were basically Miura blanks (not Hoffman) and no holes or sole cuts for tungsten ever evident. Until pictures are produced pre finished club it remains speculation, until now with these irons where it is explicitly spelled out. Don’t forget that Tiger gave away and auctioned off a couple of his used Titleist iron sets and nothing from those, that by now could have enough chrome and metal wear to see tungsten inserts. As far as Nike irons I’m not sure anyone knows the story as most interviews were pretty general. Makes no sense it wouldn’t have been well known. Were they trying to keep it a secret because it would brand Tiger as not a true traditional forged blade player. Why not make big deal of it like with Ricky and his plugs..

    It’s pretty clear on the Nike side of things that they had Tungsten in his blades. It was well said when they introduced the Vapor Pros

    You do realize that the 681 is an mb. Not a traditional blade to begin with. Right. The cog is so low on them it’s crazy. Compared to say a diamond back set of Macs the cog is down right GI. Saying that him having tungsten in the toe is anything other than a tuning element is just rediculous.



    Side note. Have you listened to the Bobka podcast ( I hate that word ) on tigers irons? He sure doesn’t say his titleist blades are miura blanks. He does say they are unfinished 841 heads. And we all know those are Hoffman.



    Here’s the podcast link.

    The Zurich bag is Fleetwood's (as per TK3309). Fleetwood asked for the P7TWs and we obliged. He put them in play earlier this year during the ET's Middle East swing.

    If I ask will you oblige?

    We will agree to disagree. In those days where I worked I had access to those raw blanks. Hoffman did 681 and T version. They did not do the 841 unless they were located in Japan not Tennessee. I have no idea what you are talking about saying “you realize the 681 is a MB” the discussion was regarding the comment that Tigers irons have had tungsten in them for eons. My comment was never saw any of the raw blanks or ground heads (regardless of where they came from) with any holes or cuts for tungsten. Hoffman had a number of quality problems at the end after decades of providing the biggest OEMs with excellent forging..

    Two questions



    How can I order? Can it be 7-P?




    Know a TM rep and no




    So you're saying that they will be a limited release then? If that's true I think that's foolish. So they won't be available through TMs website then?




    Yeah I had assumed 3-P automatic for a set like this...however there has been constant mention of 250 per club in this thread. Thought maybeeee you could order individual


    I was asked if I want 3-PW setup or custom setup for my order, so individual may be an option.

    Pinging77,

    Not going to clutter up thread with a bunch of argumentative back and forth, Cota and myself have given you accurate information, whether you choose to believe it or not is up to you. Let's try to keep this thread on topic about current Tiger inspired iron release, have you seen a set in hand or are you planning on getting a set?




    My original comment was speculating about where the tungsten was in these irons based on the sales brochure mentioning it. That generated the Tigers irons have had tungsten for eons comment (eons would include his Pings, Mizuno, Titleist, Nike, TM) That sadly degraded into the boring beat to death urban legends on where his irons were birthed.. Some weeks ago I was offered one or more of the sets my dealer was getting. Since I’m not a big Tiger fan or TM equipment lover (last TM club was R510) I said no thanks. I don’t know about other dealers in other locations but 2 large dealers that offered me sets have had their allocations spoken for. I’m sure a lot of people may be buying them as a collectors piece. Much like the Titleist T special Tiger grind I am always very suspicious of these LE that claim to be the exact club Tiger was using. The only set that ever appreciated in value was the wood cased with letter of authenticity reproductions of Tigers irons that only Titleist VIPs got. Those even had the correct shafts (not S400s they put in the T grind limited editions with cracking chrome they foisted on the general public). Those sets the VIPs got when sold in Asia got some nice prices..



    The brochure listed 3-P with specs like 2.3 mm offset in 3 iron. Mentioned the tungsten, Milled ground soles, faces, leading edges. $250 a club, no mention of partial sets (wasn’t possible for instance in the reissue of the 680MBs). I believe there was some mention of May being the availability date.

    Talked to our head pro last night who has a set aside for me. What's odd is we are receiving a 7 iron demo head to do fittings with....yet, their will be "allotments" to each rep. Seems odd that they would be limited yet have fitting components, but, that's the scoop I've gotten. As the club's well known Tiger-dork, my pro knew he had to set a set aside for me. hahaha. But, I won't exhale until they are in my bag.



    The toughest call IMO is.....do you get them Tigered-out (X100s, BCT cords, Tiger lofts) as a collection/tribute set....or, do you get them built to fit you. I am absolutely putting them in play. I have a set of Vapor pros that I gave the "MM Proto" paint job to. I'm always shocked at how playable they are even for a guy who is NOT a great ball striker (me). With a longer blade length and tungsten in the head.....dare I say these might be playable too?



    Thus, the tough question for me is..... get KBS Tour V 125s (my holy grail shaft) or X100s Tiger style. The lofts question is an easy one for me. Going to go Tiger lofts.

    If there is indeed only limited allotments of these, then I will have to state that for those who have INs, to get more than one set is plain GREEDY (Should this change to a general public release, then I can see getting multiple sets).

    I’d for sure play them to the exact specs of tigers not because it’s tiger but that fits me. The lofts are only off a degree or two here and there and I game x100 in my irons now so it wouldn’t be an issue.

    "They are a fully forged iron with a milled sole which is how they have been able to create the same iron. The stock option is Tiger’s specs (lofts included) Tour Issue X-100, Golf Pride Cord, logo down. 3-PW."

    $250 per iron is disappointing. I would get a set but not at this price point. I would buy them to play, so I wont even try at that price.
  • Ty_WebbTy_Webb Advanced Members Posts: 2,904 ✭✭
    After hearing $250 per club I was thinking that’s way too much. And I don’t have any contacts that might be able to get me one. Just saw pictures on Instagram and I’m thinking how do I make this happen? They’re such nice looking clubs!

    Like most I would prefer to be able to custom order individual irons. However since you can already do that with the P730s I can see why TM wouldn't want to cannibalize on those sales since offering two blades at once (regardless of availability) is pretty rare unless you're Mizuno. Real shame though, would be nice to order something other than 3-9PW, even though that is Tiger's setup.

    Dreams of a TM tiger model 2i or 5wood would be more appealing to me than these irons. Although I’m very intrigued...

    So comparing his lie angle in that spreadsheet he’s roughly 2 degrees flat compared to say an AP2...?
