Newer model replacement for R7 tp’s...?


Recommended Posts

I’m looking for a newer model (conforming grooves) with the same profile and, in particular, launch angle.

I am able to get decent height from these that I haven’t been able to achieve from the PSI tours.

The R7’s also had a little wider sole, with what looks like, some weight low and back, which I think helps the launch conditions.

Any ideas?

My only concern is the blade length. I like the sole width and length of the R7 tp’s. I have some epic pro’s, but they couldn’t knock them outta the bag.

I played the tp’s before and now play Callaway apex 16’s. I think that they are comparable in terms of look.

Never considered them, I’ll give them a look.

Thanks

I switched from r7tp to Ping i20 a number of years ago, then eventually iE1. I feel like my iron play improved even though I play less golf now. I would recommend something from the Ping i line.

I played the R7 TPs way back when as well. The closest that would currently be on the market is the Taylormade P790 or Titleist AP2. The blade length/offset should be similar, the only kicker is the P790 will have stronger lofts.

Sorry for me going off topic but I noticed on Gettyimages that Kenny Perry won last year's US Senior's Open with non-TP R7s. How he got a set of irons that old to have conforming grooves to win is beyond me.

I hate to get hung up on the groove rule, but I’m trending towards playing tournament golf again and want to have irons that I have the confidence in like the R7’s. I have about 20 sets of irons and none can bump them out. I have some ie1 heads I am going to shaft up, maybe tonight, and see where that leads.

Prior to the TM’s, I played I/3 Blades that were bag staples for a long time and before that 962b’s.

Originally looked at the Mizuno 900 tours with Project x 6.5, as that’s what the shaft optimizer and mizuno fitting suggested.
