Thanks TMAG for the chance to take a look at what we have all been waiing for.

My questions may have already been asked but i have two totally unrelated

With previous tmag irons (excluding the tp line), the ability to work the ball left,right, high, and low on command was mostly lost with the inverted cone, hot face etc. Will these cast irons have the tour playability of the the forged tp's with the hot distance of the burner and rbz line? to put it another way are thes a players gi iron?

Second question is very simple. Investing a grand in a set of irons i want them to last a while, what is the "wear life" of the polymer insert. I can see this as an issue for those of us that plan on using the irons or a few years.

Thanks again, cant wait to swing these

What is the rationale behind not having .5" length increments in the BladeZ, especially in the mid-long irons? How does this affect distance gaps in the longer clubs?

Will that affect any reshafting that I do? I use Nippon Steel shafts and when I reshaft would I have to follow the lengths that you use as stock or can I go my normal .5" differences without affecting swingweight etc.

Why does the speed slot appear to be curved? Am I seeing something that is not there? If it is curved, what are the benefits?

BTW, can't wait to try the Tour irons.

TM it is great that we have the opportunity to provide comments / questions directly to the manufacturer. Here are my questions.
Last year it was the RBZ irons. I was frankly considering them for my next set. I’m a low handicap golfer.

Would these new irons with the slot provide a significant margin of consistency over last year’s RocketBallz irons?

How would you describe the target customer for the RocketBladez regular and tour irons vs. the RocketBallz irons?

Much thanks.

So my question is with the new explosive technology added to this line of irons , I understand the ball speed would be increased but with the small change what effect will this have on playability shaping shots etc. love the new look and the sleek design. How does this design also feel off the club face? Thanks for the response and fingers crossed for the big drawing would love to get my hands on these beauty's !

Was the weights(perfect CG placement in every iron) from the previous TP line something that was included in this line. It made sense that every iron should have the same CG placement on a tour level iron. Is that something that is being abandoned with this line? Also, do you see many tour quality players such as Sergio whom have played blades their whole life switching?? As always thank you for the opportunity TMAG. Thats why your the best in the BIZ!!!!

First, a huge thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. I am sure these clubs perform, like all of your other offerings have, quite well. Great choice in picking Pittsburgh Steelers colors, btw ;) Oh, and my address is on file if I am lucky enough to win a set, or you can get my specs from my fitter and ship to his location... i'm not picky!

Unfortunately I cannot be online so here are a couple questions I have...

1. do the Tour versions have the ATV grind?
2. Your moving the clubhead weight behind the sweet spot in the MB/MC/CB/R11 started a trend that others have copied, so it obviously worked. Now that the weighting is more 'incognito' and not as blatant, would that be adjustable when selecting different shafts? or would traditional hosel weighting or lead tape be necessary?
3. The pictures of the regular RocketBladez heads look a bit larger than some. How do the Regular and Tour version heads compare in size to the R11, CB, MC and MB offerings?

Your website indicates that the hosel design allows for easier adjustments for loft and lie. Some cast clubs such as the R9TP, R11, RBZ, Burner series were brutal to make even 1* loft adjustments. What type steel is used in the Tour model and what is your recommended loft/lie adjustment capability ??? Thanks for taking time to help us out........

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
