ABOUT THE TAYLORMADE P7MB IRONS
TaylorMade Golf Company continues its trend of going beyond the traditional to develop products that exceed expectation at every level of the game. With the new Compact Grain Forging™ process, the company relies on a 2,000-ton forging press to ensure that each P•7MC and P•7MB iron is formed with masterful precision and a tighter grain structure designed to provide the most solid, consistent feel possible.
The process uses up to 2-3 times the forging pressure commonly found in the golf industry. This additional force refines the microstructure, decreasing the grain size to improve the overall properties of the metal.
The high pressure forging also produces a head that is near final in shape, requiring minimal hand polishing for a repeatable, precise geometry.
P•7MB is defined by its clean and elegant appearance. This beautifully crafted muscle back reflects a level of the game that we all aspire to. The Tour-inspired shaping takes cues from Dustin Johnson’s Tour Prototype irons.
They boast a thin top line, minimal offset (even less offset than the prior P•730 iron) and a narrow sole. Forged from 1025 carbon steel with a machine-milled face comprised of the most aggressive score lines in TaylorMade's arsenal, P•7MB represents the ultimate in shot making and control.
Faceted muscle back geometry delivers a seamless blend of traditional performance with a contemporary look and design.
With a mirrored surface across the backbar that allows light to reflect in multiple dimensions, this modern-era classic looks timeless in both the playing position and in the bag.
The geometrical positioning of the backbar also delivers precise CG placement and mass properties for optimal performance at the game’s highest level.
RRP - £1,299 (available for pre-order on August 14 and at retail beginning September 4, and they will be offered in 3-PW and come equipped with KBS Tour steel shafts as well as the Golf Pride Z-Grip in grey/black.
Looks - 10/10: We were absolutely blown away by the incredible aesthetics of the new TaylorMade P7MB irons. From the back, the sleek and minimalistic finish gives the iron a very classic feel. If you want to look down at an iron and be filled with confidence then this iron isn't for you as it doesn't scream forgiveness in the slightest. This butter-knife blade will light up the eyes of the stronger iron players, but may have those seeking forgiveness feeling a little frightened. The TaylorMade P7MB is truly a work of art. It's sleek, elegant and the brand has once again outdone themselves in terms of aesthetics.
Performance - 8/10: As mentioned before, this isn't an iron that you buy if you're someone seeking forgiveness and that's made obvious by its design, but what you can feel at the very first hit is that the TaylorMade P7MB iron is a phenomenal players iron with extremely responsive feedback on mishits. When you do strike these irons out the middle, they feel pure and buttery and we know exactly why Rory McIlroy has put these in the bag already. Although club testers Jack and Alex are solid golfers, had the pair been even lower handicap players, this rating would definitely have been higher.
Overall - 8.5/10: The TaylorMade P7MB irons are hands down one of the best looking irons ever and in our opinion the best TaylorMade iron in the brand's history. In the hands of seriously good golfers, these irons will provide the perfect option of a workable iron with excellent feedback and workability. The P7MB won't reach a vast range of handicaps like some of the other irons in the P-Series range, but that's the beauty of having so many options to choose from.
