The fall means new golf equipment! Today our friend Scott Kramer looks at some of the latest and greatest from TaylorMade and Mizuno…
First up, TaylorMade debuted R9 oversized irons: The perimeter-weighted 3- through 6-irons sport a large, enclosed "Velocity-Control Chamber" behind the clubface and underneath the cavity badge, generating face flex at impact for more distance. The compact short irons incorporate a deep undercut cavity and broad, low-CG sole, to induce spin
Lastly, Mizuno has showed off several new clubs, including four sets of irons: The MP-58 irons are Mizuno's first multi-material forged iron – sporting titanium in the outer muscle of the iron, and like the new muscleback MP-68 irons, also feature rolled leading and trailing edges, and flattened mid-sole; the game-improvement MX-300 irons have a minimal progressive offset, small clubhead and modest sole width; and MX-1000 irons feature a maraging steel face that's plasma-welded to a stainless steel body, for a high COR and MOI; MP T-10 wedges feature mild carbon steel clubheads, 360º sole grind and a thin top line; and MP FLI-HI hybrid irons have a thin, hot, maraging steel face and stainless steel body
That's all for now… thanks for the insider look Scott!
