TaylorMade Tour Favorite MC 2011 Irons vs. Modern Irons (Full Launch Screen Numbers) – GolfWRX

The golf club market can be a confusing place for consumers, regardless of their skill level. The latest and best designed by modern manufacturers are usually the best performing options when they fit properly in a hammock. The only problem is that new clubs are also usually the most expensive options.

In an already expensive sport, is investing in new clubs always worth the higher price tags?

Here at GolfWRX.com, we believe that whether you’re buying expensive new equipment or more affordable used options, you should get a proper club from a dedicated professional. Factors such as club length, loft, lie angle, overall design, weight settings, shaft bend, shaft weight and even handle size can have a significant impact on how the club feels and performs for the individual golfer. It’s not easy trying to figure it all out on your own, so working with an expert is imperative.

Now, when it comes to deciding whether to buy old clubs versus new ones, the conversation becomes more tailored to your specific budget and performance needs.

When you look at the clubs that are made Used on the PGA TourMost professional golfers choose to use the most modern equipment possible, or have clubs customized and prototyped exactly to their liking.

This is not the case Always case, however. PGA Tour players sometimes use golf clubs that were released many years ago and are still available in the current market at a more affordable price. Although the clubs are older designs, some tour players still find benefits because the designs have managed to stand the test of time.

He called these clubs “modern classics”.

The benefit for consumers when it comes to these modern classics is that they are currently on the market for a fraction of the cost of new equipment, but they are still viable options for useā€”even on the PGA Tour.

For our new 8-part Club Test series in partnership with 2nd Swing Golf, I selected 8 classic golf clubs that are still used at the professional level, and each club can still be found online at 2nd Swing Golf websiteor when 2nd Swing Golf Retail Outlets. Although these used clubs can be found on other third party retail sites as well, we chose to take this test at 2nd Swing because, in my personal opinion, they have one of the largest selections of used equipment on the market, and they certify the quality of each club. They sell it.

Also, their second Swing shop in Scottsdale has over 15 fitting holes equipped with launch screens, and they have a team of club fitting experts to help crunch the numbers.

The first club I chose to test in the 8-part video series was the TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC 4-iron which was first released to the public in 2011. As discussed at length at GolfWRX.com, PGA Tour player Daniel Berger is still using A set of 2011 TaylorMade TP MC irons.

For this specific test, I pitted my 2011 TaylorMade TP MC 4-iron (22-degree) against my current 4-iron (24-degree) from my collection of golf clubs; Each baton is forged with an extra hardened steel shaft. I hit 5 shots with each club, using a quality golf ball. We eliminated any outliers, then analyzed the numbers with the help of second swing expert Cliff Walzac, a long-respected club in the industry.

In the video at the top of the page we break down the whole test, playback screen numbers and then assign a value rating to the club. Just a heads up, not every team tested in the series will score such a high rating, but we happen to start with a particularly high-level Modern Classic.

If you are interested in testing/buying the 2011 TaylorMade TP MC irons for yourself, they are currently available on the 2nd Swing website. $84.99 for a single ironor $339.99 for the entire set.

What other seven clubs do you think I chose for this modern classic video series?
