The Verdict: TaylorMade has typically catered to skilled golfers, but the company looks to expand its audience with this iron. Ultra-thin faces throughout the set produce plenty of spring, and face slots widen the flexible area. Hit it low on the face? A sole slot assists shots struck there, too. Four tungsten weights in the rear heel and toe area lower the center of gravity for higher launch and improved stability on off-center strikes. Finally, no golfer wants a set of irons in the bag that scream "beginner." The forgiveness features here aren't so obvious, so there's no need to hide these on the first tee.
