Fugly.

Obsession with driver distance is fair enough, obsession with fairway distance is understandable, but what is the point of "freakishly long" irons? No doubt the lofts will be jacked... 10 degree 3 iron and 42 degree PW anyone?

TM lost the plot years ago, but people will continue to buy in to the hype due to their advertising budget being far greater than anyone else's.

Standard PW is 45, Tour is 47......
So there goes your theory....
And as soon as you can, I urge you to hit them...

I like the tour if they had no powerslot.

Shorter irons have no slots, right?

3-7 irons have speed pockets

Think I'll be sticking to my MC's. Look forward to picking up a cheaper set of MB's shortly :derisive:

MBs will not change in price. They are staying.
However, I will be happy to sell you mine, as soon as my tours get here....

So TM has designed an iron set to go longer and blow up your wedge gaps and possibly the attack irons too since they don't have the speed slot. Love it. Exactly what I want.

I detect a little bit of sarcasm. Always a good thing on Tuesday morning. Originally, that happened with the speed pocket, but they went in and slowed down the face. Haters are always going to hate...You dont have to play the irons, but dont be surprised if you want to buy them after you hit them. Go ahead and start saving your lunch money, just in case...

I apologize for my rational thinking. Let me change my tone to something more familiar.

OMG this thing is awesome! Why doesn't it come in white? These guys are geniuses!
