TESTING_MCGBIRONS.jpg

ABOUT TAYLORMADE M CCB IRONS
With its new M CGB irons, TaylorMade sought to provide golfers with a high-end product that provides the performance of a super game-improvement iron, but doesn’t look like it’s the size of a woodshed. TaylorMade's Too Bystedt and his product development team also wanted to offer better sound and feel than super-GI golfers are used to.

That being the case, TaylorMade packed the M CGB irons with technologies from the company’s past, and a few new features as well, to make them the most forgiving and longest irons in the company’s stable.

TO APPLY YOU MUST BE:
  • A GolfWRX member in good standing from the US
  • A handicap of 18 or greater
  • Ready and willing to post reviews
  • In a post below, answer the following:
    • ​Current USGA handicap
    • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific)
    • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons.
Note:  If selected, you'll be expected to contribute to a testing thread with photos and reviews.

HOW PARTICIPANTS ARE SELECTED: GolfWRX will evaluate the posts of applicants submitted by the deadline of EOD September 17. Invitations are sent via GolfWRX message system. If any participant does not confirm within 6 hours of being notified, they will be replaced.

  • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific) - Mizuno 2016 JPX EZ Forged TT XP95 R300 4i-GW
  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons. - As a short hitter who could always benefit from a boost in distance, I'm curious to see how these TM irons would perform on course.  I was considering the 2016 M1 irons before buying the Mizuno's and appreciated how easy they were to hit, but launch monitor numbers were showing huge dropoffs in spin without any increase in descent angle.

Fort Worth, Texas- Golf Club at the Resort
Handicap- 7.4
Current Set Up- Nike Vapor Pro Combo Set, 4-PW Dynamic Gold S300
I have mainly played with blades and recently have been struggling to keep consistent weight shift, leading to think usually hook shots. Been wanting to try a more GI iron but with so many having a thick topline it is hard to be consistent. 4 iron is usually max carry around 195 and would like to play longer Par 3's with iron opposed to hybrid.


Never mind, just realized its 18+, thought it was opposite. Trying to delete.

  • Current USGA handicap Not official USGA, but 20 at the moment
  • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific)Titleist 981 DCI 3-PW with Original Rifle Shafts 6.5, 3/4" over
  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons. As you can tell from my irons, they are 15+ year old golf clubs that I used when I played a lot of junior golf. I've been on a 10-year golf hiatus and have just started playing again in the last month. I am nowhere as good as I used to be and cannot hit these irons anymore! These Taylormade irons sound like a great option for me as they offer the forgiveness and new technology that is currently not present in my 981 DCI's. Love the fact that the irons are super forgiving, but not shovels.

  • ​Current USGA handicap - N/A but consistently shoot in the 90s (looking to join a course this upcoming year to get an official handicap)
  • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific) - Rbladez with KBS Tour 90 stiff .5" longer and 2 degrees upright
  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons. I am a big believer in Taylormade's products and technology. As a generally new golfer and one that doesn't play a round as often as they'd like, I need all the help I can get at the moment as I'm honing and perfecting my swing. I probably should be using a set of Super GI irons but I could never move past the look of them as well as get them past a grandfather that grew up playing on the links of Scotland. Also as you can see I'm still gaming what I feel is the best GI iron set that TM has ever come out with and I'd love to test TM's claims with their new GI set vs my Taylormade Rocketbladez. I've tried all of their sets Rsi, M2, etc. and have yet to find a set that knocks my Bladez out of my bag.

Current USGA handicap: 20.1
Current irons: Callaway X-Forged 4-PW, Project X 6.5 shafts
Why: I used to play game improvement irons (Adams Redline) for a couple of years, and when I got a little better I switched to the these Callaways because of look and feel. The look of most GI irons really didn't appeal to me, and somehow gave me less confidence on the tee. I've been using my Callaways for 3 years now and while I still really like them, I've lately been wondering how a set of GI irons would help me, as I am still an inconsistent ballstriker and definitely lose some distance and accuracy off of mishits (my current irons aren't so forgiving for that). The biggest issue is feel off mishits - while there is great feedback, it's such a thud and unpleasant feeling that it gets in your head. I just recently bought a TaylorMade M2 3HL, and currently play a TaylorMade rescue hybrid. I'm curious how irons like these, that present fairly normal when at address - but may have a larger sweet spot for mishits - could help with consistency over a few rounds at the same course.

  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons. - I'm wanting to go to even more of a GI or SGI club and am looking for increased distance and forgiveness. Back around 2006 I played the RAC CGB irons and thought they were really a game changer at the time. It would be awesome if the new CGB's follow in those footsteps!

haha exactly!  I tend to think of myself as a pretty good golfer (10 handicap), but it does seem like everyone is hovering around a 1-2.  I always think that I have a long ways to go, so it's nice to see that I'm not the only one that sees this

Current USGA handicap:
18.7, down from 22 earlier this year!

Current iron set:
Adams Idea Black CB3 with FST KBS Tour 90 in X flex - 4-AW
  
Why I want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons:
I feel like a good fit for this iron. I've experimented with several iron sets over the past 2 seasons and feel like I have a good baseline to compare similar GI and SGI clubs. Had a lot of success with the TaylorMade RSI1 irons last year and these look like an improvement over that line. I have recently been professionally fitted for the G400, Steelhead XR, Mizuno 900 Hot Metal, and the Callaway XR OS. It appears to me that your new line will be a great competitor to those lines, and as I look to purchase a new iron set for next season I am excited with what I'm reading about the M CGB.
The Adams CB3 are forged GI/SGI clubs with great feel, I am really looking forward to finding the clubs that can finally knock them out of the bag for good.
Preferred shafts are KBS C-Taper lite 115g, Project X 6.5 125g, or the KBS Tour 130g - all in X flex.


Thanks for the opportunity!

​Current USGA handicap - Unofficially around a 19.  Been shooting scores of 90-95 with occasional rounds of 100.

What are your current irons and shafts (be specific) -  Currently I am gaming a set of Srixon 545s, s/s/s with s300 shafts

State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons.- I am excited that Golfwrx is finally offering an opportunity for mere mortals like myself the opportunity to test a club that is designed for our demographic.  Lately, I have become more realistic with my game, and my limitations.  Specifically, my life situation with young kids, long commute, and occupied weekends just don't allow me the luxury of practice, and I am only able to play a round every 3-4 weeks.  

Years ago, I felt I had made tremendous strides with my swing, and ditched a set of sgi clubs for a set of Mizuno mp-53.  Unsurprisingly, my scores did not improve a bit, but the joy of flushing a forged Mizuno kept me from moving to a club that was more suited for my game.  Fast forward to earlier this year, after purchasing a set of Srixon 545, I felt my iron game improved dramatically with the increased forgiveness.  More importantly, I was able to identify shots that were poorly struck, that still had a favorable result with the Srixon, but which would have been punished greatly by the Mizunos. This experience has opened my eyes to the benefits of a club that is specifically designed for a higher handicapper like myself.  

Coming back to this opportunity, I am hoping that these clubs will further help my game even more.  I don't see a change in my practice time in the near future, so obviously any help that these clubs can offer me would be tremendous for my game. I love the fact that they look packed with technology, and really hope that there is a purpose and noticeable improvement with the tech other than aesthetics.  I am a huge gear head, and love things that look industrially purposeful.  I know this isn't anything similar to the Taylormade experience, but I gained a lot of respect from how the wrxer's were treated in their trips to the kingdom.  The team over there really oozes class and show their passion for golf and gear.  I am a huge equipment nerd, as evidenced by my sig.

Lastly, I also happen to be a photography nut and gear head, and do have quite a bit to say about things I am passionate about.  Writing is one of my stronger suits, but this would be my first gear review.  I read a lot of member reviews on here, so I think I have a good idea of what a good review should include.  In any case, good luck to everyone and thanks for the opportunity!

Current handicap- (not USGA)  is roughly 22.

Current irons- I have a set of Ping eye2 with the stiff zz-lite shafts and also a set of srixon z545 irons with the project x 6.0 steel shafts (probably a bit stiff for me)

I am still on the search for an iron that can handle my lack of consistent play time.  I need help with off center hits and the occasional inability to hit the ball with confidence.  The technology in these clubs seem to have a formula that could do that for me.  I would love the opportunity to test and present my findings compared to my current clubs and can also use this as an excuse to get in more play and range time.

Thank you for the chance to review your new products TM and WRX

What are your current irons and shafts (be specific) - Srixon z565 5-GW with DG AMT S400

State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons.  I think it's great that there is a testing opportunity for higher handicaps!  I've realized that I need all the help I can get with my clubs, especially irons, since my playing time has decreased after having kids.  I chose my current irons because they were a good blend of forgiveness and great feel.  I know I would probably benefit from clubs that are closer to the SGI category but I have not found a set that had a good feel to them.  Because of this, it would be really cool to be able to test the M CGB irons against my current z565 to see if they make this game a little easier while offering similar feel (because the z565s feel great).

I would love to test their newest irons -- and I am good TM customer and fan of their woods and hybrids (I game M2 woods and hybrids).  That said -- I have found their M2 and M1 irons not to my liking during my fitting.  But I would love to have a chance to check these out with some lighter weight stiff shafts.

Thanks!

PS:  If it matters - I have an indoor practice setup with a SkyTrak LM so I will be able to discuss measurable differences, as well as access to a full range.

​Current USGA handicap:  
unofficialy 20-ish right now. Consistently shooting 90's

What are your current irons and shafts (be specific):  
Mizuno jpx 850 standard LLL  PX 5.0 fllighted - 1/2

State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons:
BECAUSE I NEVER EVER MEET THE CRITERIA FOR A WRX CONTEST!
I also have 3 kids, and don't get the time to practice and play like I used to. My game is suffering because of it, and I need all the help I can get to consistently play decent, without playing or practicing consistently.
This is finally a contest right up my alley.
Also, I'm local to TM, so I can totally pick them up and save them some $ on shipping. Win-Win for everybody.

Unofficial 36
TaylorMade Burner with stock shafts that came with them.
I've been hearing good things about these clubs. I like how they are targeting higher handicaps and not forgetting about the little guys or the people that are new to the sport that may struggle with other sets of irons geared more towards lower handicap golfers. In some way I feel like these clubs were made for me while I continue to learn and improve.

◦ Current USGA handicap: 10 (you should let us in too! We need help:-)

◦ What are your current irons and shafts (be specific):
          Ping G400 4 thru U, Black dot, AWT regular flex, GP Tour Velvet

◦ State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons:
            Through the years, I always fully embraced new iron technology (and the ensuing heckling from “sheep” that true pioneers endure) and feel that TM’s commitment and courage pushing the edge of the envelope in all areas of club design, have made the game truly more fun.
             Having owned the LCG, Ti Bubble 2, RAC, LT, R7 TP, original CGB irons, Burners, Speedblades and most recently M2 irons, as well as other offerings from producers, I have years of testing on course.
          Also, I’m the demographic they are after. 60 yrs old, slowing swing speed (7 iron 150yds :-( ). Since Golf is my beautiful, unfaithful mistress of which I cannot part with, I will undoubtedly buy them if I feel they will make me laugh out loud with joy as the original Burner irons did when I watched the height, distance and power of that technology as they humbled my beloved G10 irons. TM, Ping, Cally and others continue to push and we are the beneficiaries… so, yes! I’d love a shot at them…

  • ​Current USGA handicap - GHIN 19.3
  • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific) - CF16 4-PW, Nippon Modus Tour 120 X flex
  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons. - Interested to see if I can get more consistent distances -- namely on off-center strikes. Also, curious to see if M CGB 4/5 irons are simply easier to hit than the CF16s.

Thanks!

  • ​Current USGA handicap
I am hovering around a 20 handicap (currently 19.8) (keeping a handicap for the first time since 2003)
  • What are your current irons and shafts (be specific)
Hogan Apex Edge forged with a stock regular shaft.
  • State why you'd want to test the TaylorMade M CGB Irons.
I am much like many golfers on here - avid golfer in my teens and early 20s and then life got in the way.  Now that I am 40 I am finally back to playing regularly - about once a week.  I played my best golf with one of the first game improvement irons - the original King Cobras.  While I love my forged irons, my game needs something more forgiving.  With work and other commitments, I simply do not have the time to practice and play well on more player irons. I am looking for something more forgiving while staying with a more traditional iron look.  The Taylormade M CGG really appeal to me - and I feel I am the target audience for it.  Higher handicap looking for a more traditional looking game improvement iron.  I would love to be able to test the iron because: (1) I need irons that give me all the help I can get; (2) I am not man enough to play truly hybrid iron; and (3) I want irons that are a bit strongly lofted.

Thanks for the opportunity WRX!

Current handicap: 18.7
Current irons: Bridgestone ec603 irons with Nippon 950gh stiff flex shafts
I'd want to test the Taylormade M CBG irons because I'm looking for a set of irons that will give me max forgiveness and increase my distance so I have shorter irons for my approach shots. I want to make this game as simple as possible and focus on scoring and other clubs that I may struggle with mainly driver. Point and shoot is what I want on approach shots.

Cobra King Ltd. Pro
Nike Vapor Fly Pro 2i
Callaway Epic 2h & 3h
Bridgestone EC603
Bridgestone J15 52/56/60
Slighter Redmond/Ping 1966 TR Anser2
Bridgestone e6
