The Verdict: The thin topline and small blade length appeal to the lower-handicapper, and an increased sole radius and improvements to the face help mis-hits. Key to the construction are beams inside the structure that stiffen the body, providing enhanced energy transfer to the ball. TaylorMade continues to use slots in the face and sole to maximize face flex. Tungsten weights are used in each iron to precisely place the center-of-gravity location for optimal launch conditions at impact. Also, flattening the curvature of the leading edge effectively increases the bounce, reducing digging.
