Why did they opt to not use the "TP" logo ??

First off, I like the idea of sticking with the "tour preferred" name across the board of irons and balls. My question is this, with the speed pocket irons in the MCs, would it require some loft tweaking on the mb/mc combo set to ensure proper gapping? What is the official pre order release date?

Thanks

I've loved TMaG irons in the past, but have been wooed away from the feel and fit of Mizzys for the last couple years. This new TP forged offering looks very compelling and could be a return to TMaG on irons for me.. my question would be:

- Can you help us understand which of the lines and irons are forged vs. cast and why? What would these differences mean for those of us interested in a mixed set, and how would the speed pocket play a part in a mixed set? Thanks!

Will loft adjustments be needed between long iron cbs to mid iron mcs for cb/mc combo sets? Why are the cbs and the 3-7 mcs cast from a different material?

What are the full specs on the three models? (Loft, length, lie, offset).

What loft tweaks should be made in longer clubs for a proper MC/CB split?

What are Justin Rose's exact specs on his two split sets?

New irons look fantastic, but i had the rocketbladez and got rid of them for i did not like the feel or the sound, so are the new mc & cb irons do they feel better and is that click sound gone in the slotted irons ?

Will you do a big release for or with the new TP line for they are so deserving of one.

I think you guys should also bring back to production the Tour Preferred TP RED Golf balls that everyone here loves. That would be awesome!

Yes, I know I am beating a dead horse. Love those golf balls.

[quote name='dmonaco19' timestamp='1388897134' post='8400631']
On the previous model mc irons the selling point was the weight right behind the sweet spot of the iron, not in the hosel. This made sense to better balance the head for more accuracy.

On the new mc irons was this totally abandoned? I understand the speed pocket for distance, but what about accuracy?
[/quote]

Think of the speed pocket as not just a distance boost but a sweet spot boost. What the speed pocket really does is increase the size of the sweet spot and gives you a better chance to hit the ball solid, while also allowing the face to flex more and given you additional ballspeed. The improved speed pocket found in the speedblade and new Tour Preferred irons also helps eliminate hot spots on the face that create wider distance gaps on mis-hits.

New Bag in the making...

Hello TMag Crew,

I'll get right to my favorite topic...who's forging the Tour preferred mc(8,9,pw) and mb irons? Are they being done in Japan or China or do you have another location that no one knows about? Callaway has told us Endo is forging their Apex Pro irons so I was hoping you could tell us who forges your New TP's?

Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions. Tim

Adams was able to put the slot in their fully forged XTD ions... Why did you not do the same?
