    I think the irons look great. I have never purchased Callaway irons. I never bought the idea of a uniflex shaft for everyone. I feel Callaway has missed the low HC market that doesn’t want forged irons. I want irons that don’t punish me when I miss them. I think these Pro series might work for me. Ofcourse I want to see how they compare with the new rocketbladez.

      Gotta hit ’em first. Going to replace my X-14s with either Hot X or Rocketbladez. Can’t wait!!

    Wow! I am surprised by the comments about the looks of the irons…I guess “to each his own” but I think these irons (X Hot Pro) look very nice and classy (I did not say classic) compared to the X Hot 24 and Raxr X graphics…I also see them repalcing the Razr X Tour and that was a very good looking iron at address… and played by quite a few on the Tour’s…I just hope in the “Pro” we can get some decent shaft choices without upcharges…

    We hit the Fairway Wood and it blew everyone away who hit it! Stunning FairwayWood and it is definitely going in my bag when it drops. The Tour FW is so choice.

    Awesome. These clubs fly at least a club longer than my AP2’s

      Yeah, but how do the lofts compare? Most of these new ‘longer distance’ irons being made today are being delofted – hence the greater distances eg the loft of the new TM Rocketbladez 6iron is akin to the Callaway X-22 5iron but TM claim thieir 6iron is 11 yards longer than the X-22 6iron!!

      Really? It looks like a Titty-TM mangled step-child.
      Like an AP2 with the Burner 2.0 mixed together, no?
      LAZY design! Truly, truly lazy. Nothing unique or cool about this one, at all!

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.

We spotted new shallow-faced CF218 fairway woods (15 and 17 degrees) from Fourteen Golf on the range at TPC San Antonio on Tuesday at the 2018 Valero Texas Open, each equipped with Graphite Design TS918 shafts. Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.

Check out more photos below, and see what GolfWRX Members are saying about the clubs in our forums.
