The TaylorMade R7 TP iron is targeted at tour pros and low handicappers. With its compact head, thin topline and thin sole, the TaylorMade R7 TP iron is designed to promote blade-like feel and workability along with "constant distance," meaning the same, consistent yardage from shot to shot to shot – even on miss-hits. The R7 TP iron also features a large cavity for an iron of this type, the design of which promotes a higher MOI for a surprising degree of forgiveness. The R7 TP iron also features TaylorMade’s next-generation Inverted Cone Technology, in the form of the oval-shaped "cone" in the cavity, which increases the size of the COR zone. The result is consistent ball speed and distance on hits away from the sweetspot. The R7 TP iron’s excellent stability and forgiveness, in conjunction with the positive affect of the Inverted Cone, together promote the R7 TP iron’s ability to deliver extraordinary distance consistency from shot to shot.
The TaylorMade R7 TP iron’s great feel and sound arise from TaylorMade’s new shock-absorption web, which is positioned in the cavity. The web, made of a thin layer of soft aluminium that reaches out to each corner of the clubhead, is bonded to the cavity with 3M VHB Tape. VHB Tape is a double-sided, closed cell acrylic foam tape with viscoelastic properties that absorb shock and soften sound. The combination of the web and the tape, plus the precise manner in which the web is shaped and positioned, delivers tour-calibre feel. Additional performance features include minimal offset, a slightly flatter lie angle and a tour-configured sole. The minimal offset and a flatter lie angle together give players with tour-calibre hand action what they need to work the ball and play "shots." The higher CG, which is made possible by the shallow cavity, promotes a controllable, tour-type trajectory. The tour-configured sole was developed by the team that mans the TaylorMade Tour Trailer week in and week out on the PGA Tour, and incorporates a specially ground leading edge and softened trailing edge that discourage digging and instead glides smoothly through and clear of the turf. The TaylorMade R7 TP iron comes equipped with the tour-proven True Temper® Dynamic Gold steel shaft in R3, S3 and X1; and the tour-proven Tour Velvet grip with TaylorMade logo, which delivers an unparalleled combination of traction, comfort and feel.
