Please don't give it any funky names.

I think they will be called Rocketbladez as OPs have stated. I like that name better than Rocketballz personally.

I don't know about that name either.

I like it and it seems to fit according to the lucky ones who have hit these already.

Anyone else think they look a bit AP2-ish?

I met with my TM rep today and his words to me was "Its like a cleaned up AP2"
The only thing I dont like about all the new TM stuff is that the prebook order that we had to do was Product A and Product B....Its never no fun ordering something that you havent seen

I don't need a 185 6 iron, 195 yard 5 iron, 205 yard 4 iron and 215 yard 3 iron at the moment but maybe I can learn to adjust. :D
I'm one of those guys that found the 17yds w/Rockbetballz 3 woods so these irons just might be up my alley after all. :D

First blush looked like the Hogan Apex to me. Regarding the slot to gain more distance I wonder if you need a certain clubhead speed to make these clubs effective. For instance if you have a swing speed of 100 mph i'm sure you get a different benefit than if you swing at 80 mph. From what I hear from a reliable industry source is that the slot is there for extra distance and that other companies will not be far behind.

My scoring is done mostly with 9iron thru SW. I hardly ever use the 8 or 7 iron and much less obviously with the others. It sure would be nice though to hit my long irons anything like Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus. :D I hope they sell partial sets like 4-7 iron etc. I love my 2012 model MB's w/ KBS Tour x shafts. One of the most consistent distance irons I've ever played. My set is 4-7 MC and 8-PW MB.

Leave it Taylormade to keep coming up with true enhancements year after year.
I can't wait to see the Youtube videos of Dustin Johnson flying his 3 iron 250 yards. :D

Well thats why they bought Adams. Never a fan TM period, they make the consumer have dated equipment within 5 months.

From what I can see, the topline seems a little thicker than I would have thought for a tour-caliber iron.

Interesting concept. I'm sure the irons will go farther because of the slots, and they will sell a bunch of them. But from a scoring standpoint, how many of us want to hit our irons farther? At this rate we are all going to be hitting our irons 250 yards, leaving a 100 yard gap to the wedges.... Maybe TM wants us to buy 6 more wedges?
I drank the distance kool-aid with the XTD fairway, but believe it or not I'm now going back to an old 3 wood that "only" goes 260. I need a 3 wood that goes a 3 wood distance on a 3 wood trajectory... Why do we need a 3 iron that goes rescue distance and a PW that goes 7 iron distance? Is that going to help lower our scoring average? The only club that I want to hit farther is the driver, and that's up to me, which I like.
But I digress... Maybe these irons will be 'Super' forgiving and hit it much higher and softer; I'll try not to bash them any more until they come out. But you still gotta get the ball in the hole. Just sayin.

Maybe I'm simple but these are down right ugly. The slot, the shape, the length of the head, everything about these to me look like they've tried too hard. I game the MC's and I love love love those irons but I think I'll stick to those until the end.

TaylorMade Executive Vice President Sean Toulon said what TaylorMade is about to do will completely change how TOUR players look at an iron.

 

It's like everyone just kinda glided right past that ..... That is a QUOTE help.gifHitit.gif

 

All the more reason it's going to be tougher for Tigre to reach 18/19. If these play out as touted, it will really make many long par 4's and par 5's that much easier for tour pros. If Tour guys can get hybrid distances and hybrid flight with their irons then this can really negate alot of distance advantage off the tee. I want that 2 or 3 iron as I have some golf buddies that I know will be outdriven by those 2 clubs. :D

Wish they could produce something like the R9 TP's that look clean, I like the R9 series TM stuff, and now they discontinue their players irons, and come out with another bulky cast iron..


I like the old TM. SFTP 2.0, R9's. Not the RocketCRAP.
[/quote]

Old TM; agreed! Though the MC's are the best set i've ever owned, those are pretty clean, the R9's are sweet too, I wish they would come back to this.

If these look good, and are as long as the 2.0's they have a real winner.
