Here's a good deal IMO for approximately $200 shipped.  Look's like seller had a sale on these irons which ended, price now roughly $240 shipped.  Condition looks solid - a little rust in cavities, no biggie but grooves look great!

Which one you of you WRXer bagged these irons?

M2 driver, 3 wood & 4 hybrid

Smokin Deal. And from a trusted seller. Damn. I have no need, but still tempted to buy them for visitors to use.

I hear ya!  I keep a set of clubs at my friend's house in San Diego for my yearly visit and these would be nice to have stashed there.

It's tough to really see from the pics...
Maybe someone else can expand the image & see better than me..
But I DO NOT see any dots in the corner of the badging....
It looks like MAYBE on the 6 iron... (which would be the easiest club to come by)
I got stuck with a fake set of these years ago....
Callaway GBB Epic 10.5* HZRDUS T800
Titleist 915FD 15* Aldila Rogue Black

PING i20 4-U Green Dot +5/8" PXI 6.0 SS1x
Callaway MD3 54*& 58*
Odyssey 2-ball 33"





Don't worry Ron... I still own the 5-wood.... It's up on the mantle doing it's best impression of wall art

If you go to the ad and hover over the pics it zooms in.  Can see them clearly on multiple clubs.  PW looks clearest to me.

I'm on a Macbook, & my eyes aren't what they used to be.. lol
But I believe you are correct...
Cool set of irons...
I still preach to SO many people who say they want new irons but don't want to pay the prices of let's say a new AP2...
2005 Rac TP's are still some of the greatest clubs ever made...
I believe these are also of Miura forging, same as the 2005 Rac's?

The 2005's are great looking but I thought those were coin forged?  Not to look down my nose at that but does Miura do coin forging?  Kind of a poor mans forging from the purist point of view.

That I haven't a clue on...
IIRC, the trick is find Tour Issue heads...
Which of course aren't as plentiful, but they are out there...
I've owned 2 sets of the 05's, & they are fantastic (IMO)
Someone should pick these up & give us all a review!

Your post made me want to do some searching so I found this old post in another forum that goes a little ways to explaining the differences between the Tour forged sets and the coin forgings that were sold to the masses:http://forums.golfreview.com/showthread.php?13671-Taylor-Made-RAC-Irons-Forged-by-Miura&p=183068#post183068

Bishop,
That's some fine work on info!
Gives us all a better idea on what to look for with the 2005's (2003?)
Myself, I still stand by them as a GREAT iron for the money...
Whether actual Miura forged, or not... I always had good success with them...
If I could only find an iron that I hit better than my WRX built i20's :russian_roulette:

I have a set of the 09 TPs Japan version.  They're one of my backup sets.  They feel great.
