Better than throwing them away like they did back in the day.  Theres a lot of money in what the tour players don't want anymore.

My thoughts are they offered these to their tour players who they thought would grab them in an instant and found they preferred other models. Must have been left with a lot of 2 and 3 iron heads that needed offloaded. On a positive that 16 degree head could be great on a windy seaside course.

They're now available, FYI. I'm gonna take a pass because I'm waiting on the 790. Also, can't figure out what HZRDUS shaft it is (it just says HZRDUS Hybrid shaft).

Man I want one of these things so bad, but can't stomach forking up $220 plus tax without hitting it first.  I'd prefer to order through my local guys here, too and its only available through TM directly.  Rep said they will certainly sell out today due to such limited release.

Don't have any pics but I've seen what's happened to my Father-in-law's set of M2's this year - basically it seems like there's an area on the face of the longer irons that begins at the toe side face slot that looks like someone has pressed it in a couple of mm, and the TPU in the toe side face slot has cracked and pushed out. Not sure if it's just specific to toe side misses or what, but it's on his 5-7 irons in basically the same area below...

My guess: They kept these on the Tour Van for long iron replacement/ driving iron type clubs. Now, with the release and tour acceptance of the P790, there is no need for them so they are trying to get rid of current stock at a premium price. Taylormade is sooooo good at marketing and sales strategy it is ridiculous.

Agree with this...Now is the time for TM to begin dumping ALL the troublesome 'face slotted' irons!... :yes:

:golfer:

http://www.golfwrx.c...-problems-pics/

Yep... while most of these issues are seen in the RSi2 irons, looks like the M2 is NOT IMMUNE to the face toe slot caving in issue. You would have thought that TM would have learnt and beefed it up by now.

Black, yes, but the TM site doesn't list weight (Apparently only 85 available), or whether it's the HC version or the retail version.

I can't speak to the M2s but I use an RSi1 3 iron as a driving iron and had the face cave in about 1 mm next to the slot on the toe of the iron. You could feel an indentation if you ran your hand across it, and the face was slightly concave as well.

TM replaced it with a new RSi1 3 iron even though it was out of warranty, so I'm alright in that regard, but if it happens again I'm going to request something without face slots altogether.
