TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC forged irons
The TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC irons have a shallow cavity designed to increase forgiveness and feel.
To achieve consistent swingweight and optimal center of gravity, TaylorMade has placed a Precision Weighting Port in the back of the iron. MSRP is $899.99 (eight irons, steel shafts); stock shaft is True Temper Dynamic Gold.
Forged irons have made a dramatic comeback. Only a few years ago, most irons were made of investment-cast stainless steel. Now we see forged irons, made of soft carbon steel, in the club lineup of every major club manufacturer.
In general, these irons appeal to low-handicap players, although some companies are making a pitch to golfers of average ability who probably are planning on improvement.
