TaylorMade P7TW irons: Designed for Tiger, built for you

Published

on

If the start of Masters week wasn’t already a big enough event to get the golf world buzzing like a swarm of bees in April, we now have more news from TaylorMade Golf and Tiger Woods. The long-rumored P7TW irons are being released in both limited edition fashion and available through custom order.

The Limited edition versions will come in a custom box designed to deliver “a premium unboxing experience… as a way that pays tribute to the heartfelt collaboration of Tiger Woods and TaylorMade Golf.” (TaylorMade’s words, not mine).

Let’s have some real talk for a second — there are very few people that will probably buy these to be wall hangers, and although I would suggest the best way to appreciate a set of irons is to send them through the dirt, the box is a very cool touch. Limited edition sets have never proven to have any extra residual value beyond the initial release buzz (think MM Protos, Mizuno MP 100), but one way or the other we must admit that “holy smokes these look freaking awesome.”

From a technology standpoint, make no mistake: these are a forged blade, but the team at TaylorMade (in collaboration with Mike Taylor, and Tiger) have done a lot to ensure every single aspect or each iron is designed to Woods’ exacting specs and the end consumer is going to experience the same club heads that the Big Cat himself uses.

The technologies include a “hidden” tungsten weight to help concentrate mass behind the sweet spot for “a unique blend of feel, flight and control.” It has been long speculated that Tiger’s personal irons had this feature, and thanks to the full disclosure of the tech specs for the P7TWs from TaylorMade, we the consumers now know what was really behind the chrome this whole time.

Unconfirmed Tiger Woods’ raw Nike iron

What is also part of what makes these distinctly TaylorMade is the Milled Grind sole, a process they have featured in the wedge line for some time now – available for the first time in an iron. Developed to ensure every head has the same grind every single time it instills confidence that for Tiger that when it comes to replacing worn clubs he’s getting the same thing club after club.

SO what does this all really mean. Well first off, we finally get to see what TaylorMade and Tiger have been up to since signing their initial agreement a few years ago. It has always been known that Tiger is extremely exacting when it comes to his gear especially his irons — which is also funny since he recently admitted to not fully understanding how adjustable drivers worked (if that’s not going full “dad mode,” don’t know what is). For one of the BEST iron players the game has ever seen, to work with a company to create a special set of tools to exacting specs — and then have those available to the general consumer is not something we see everyday.

Although I don’t lack for iron sets or blades for that matter (8 sets and growing), this is another one of those sets for some reason I just want. I know, I know — I could hit sandy range balls for a decade and never get through all of my iron inventory but it’s NOT about that — it’s about being able to see and feel the same clubs Tiger uses in your bag and know that without a doubt you have something special.

Pricing and availability

Available for preorder starting today and available commercially beginning May 1, the P7TW ($1,999.99 USD) will be offered in 3-PW (RH only) and come equipped with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue shafts and Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet Cord grips.

The P7TW will also be available through TaylorMade’s custom program, allowing for numerous additional custom shaft and grip options.

    Did anyone notice that there wasn’t one clear picture of the face of the club? Isn’t that the part that makes contact w/ the ball? Huh? Really makes me wonder about the what they’re really marketing and to whom.

    They keep saying they’re limited editions but I can’t find anywhere that says how many sets are being made and offered for sale. If they flood the market they won’t be worth much in the future.

    WHY ARE THE LOFTS NOT TO TIGER’S SPEC????

    • joe

      There are options to spec them like Tiger’s.

    Are they better than “Tour Issue” ? 🙂

    Hurry, hurry, run as fast as you can to your local club store. I am sure you will be much better by buying these beauties. After all, you accomplish 2 things. One is you have the same Irons Tiger has, at least for now, and you will be out 1200 Bucks. Be the first kid on your block to have them, yowsa. Hurry before they are all gone.

      1200? Try $1,999! For clubs that aren’t even custom fit for the buyer. Hahaha

    I’ll just keep my old Nike VR Pro Blades and wedges for now and pretend.

    “Consumers never had the opportunity to play irons like mine until… now” Tiger
    Sorry to everyone like myself who purchased the VR Pro blades guess they weren’t legit like the Tmags. ????

    • Nike is junk

      Apr 8, 2019 at 8:55 pm

      No, those were Chinese made copy junk like all Nike equipment, cheaply made, extra priced for you in the US paying high prices for junk that you like to do so much

        Apr 9, 2019 at 12:05 pm

        I didn’t say that the Nikes didn’t perform well. They actually performed beautifully and had great feel. Mine just got worn down and Nike was on to the Vapors at that point so I couldn’t get another set of the VR Pro blades.

    $1200 irons with an $800 upcharge because of box/tw attachment. I’ll wait.

    • K

      Apr 8, 2019 at 8:56 pm

      Only! They could charge $5000 and people would still buy, so I don’t know why they didn’t price it at 5K

    I’ll bet the 8,9 and PW are to die for. I would love to look down an 8 iron! How is the tungsten weight hidden? In the chroming process I would imagine. I cant see a thing except a beautiful muscle back. And yes, X100’s are Tigers flavor and they are in the limited edition version.

    Ryan-

    It’s 2019, and TaylorMade admits it.

    “P7TW ($1,999.99 USD) will be offered in 3-PW (RH only)” and

    “The P7TW will also be available through TaylorMade’s custom program, allowing for numerous additional custom shaft and grip options.”

    Only TM would put RH ONLY, custom, and numerous in the same ad.

    I’m confused — these are built to Tiger’s exacting specs, but they come with S400 shafts. Does Tiger actually S400 shafts and not X100 shafts?

    • Jzilla

      Apr 8, 2019 at 1:36 pm

      TM website says stock shaft is “DG Tour Issue X100 (Tiger’s)”

    I would hope these are assembled in a different part of TaylorMades irons assembly plant. Because the Quality Control coming out for their general irons like P760 and 790 are abhorrent, twisted grips, ferrule loose. I saw 2 different sets of the same retail spec, of 760 irons and they were a quarter inch or more different in length.

    They need to reveal where they were forged. I called, they won’t disclose.

    • dat

      Apr 8, 2019 at 11:16 am

      I agree on the forging location. For $2K, they better be butter and from a mega quality forging factory in Japan like Endo.

    • JP

      Apr 8, 2019 at 1:46 pm

      I called to confirm and was told they were forged in the fired of Mount Doom, thus justifying the cost.

      • Edward Fitzgerald

        Apr 8, 2019 at 2:23 pm

        And like the one ring, these blades answer to Tiger alone and can have no other master…lol.

    • Murica

      Apr 8, 2019 at 8:59 pm

      They were forged at the back of the shrimp shop down in the backwater street shop in Chinatown in L.A. so they’re made in the USA

  • Matty01984: “They look so so good! The thing that I always struggled with when it came to the original T100 was the look at the back. I got over it because they quite simply look incredible behind the ball, but Titleist has taken that up a notch with how they look.”

– Soft Stainless SUS303

– Ported neck to save weight

– Tungsten weights added to the sole to increase MOI and forgiveness
