I recently bought a set of TM TP-tour irons for $11 and gave them a little touch up.
From the article below I think they would be from around late 1980's (same font as the '87 Tour Preferred TD's) or the early 1990's (same logo as the ICW-5 and ICW-11.

Who has more information on these for me. I was told they were cast irons, but they feel like forged. Anyone have an exact year? Any Pro's played them?
Thank you for any information you can provide.

I can't help you, but just wanted to say nice pick up. I had a set of TDs back in the day, so these take me back to my youth! I would guess that yours are cast, like the TDs, but I can offer no proof. What are they like to hit?
Driver: Ping G400 Tour 65S
4w: TaylorMade R9 stock Fujikura Motore X flex
7w  TaylorMade V-steel, Quadra Fire Express RB 6SX
Driving Iron: Tourstage Airmuscle with DGS200 (for occasional use only)
Irons (4i-PW): Mizuno MP18 PX6.0 @ + 1/2"  or something a bit older....MP-4s, Mac Muirfield 20ths, Mac Muirfields, Mizuno MS-11s, MS-1s, RAM Tour Grinds, Tourstage 2005 CBs, Honma PP737s, Mac R-58s, Dunlop Maxfli TM-92 Australian Blades, Wilson FG-J8s (FG-17s)...uh, I've missed a few
Wedges: Callaway MD2 50* S and 54* S-grind  or whatever else I fancy for the day
In the 60* slot: Usually a Titlesit Vokey 260 60*
Putter: Testing some old Mizuno 8802 clone

Hi NCN, I can tell you they are a dream when you pure them. Anything remotely out of the center will break your fingers though and massive loss of distance, especially with this cold weather.
That said, they are now my second favorite set and pretty close behind number 1.

Early 90s. TM version of the TP19. Stunning to look at but not very forgiving. Very popular on European Tour. Most came with original Rifle shafts.They must have been forged in Japan as like Maruman they had a great looking pitching wedge then gap and sand iron with huge soles and a massive amount of bounce. A local player won the Scottish Amateur with a set. He nailed it and would have made a great Pro...had he been able to control his temper.

Serg-

These are Tour Preferred (TP) Tour Irons from TaylorMade.

These  "TP Tour" stamps, not the ICW models.

Any LH models made?   To my knowledge, very few.

Superb find!
