The TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB irons are the game improvement cavity back irons in the TP range. The sole is a little more chunky than the other TP irons thanks to the undercut cavity of the cast head, but that is what gives the CB irons their forgiveness and high MOI. The head includes a forged face insert and combined with the sound management badge does make these irons feel very good indeed.

This is a little surprising as the heads are oversized with a little more offset than the MC irons, so you would expect all the usual game improvement characteristics, but no. The flight was a little higher but still penetrating and the long irons in particular were very easy to hit.

Mid-handicappers may want to blend a few of the MC short irons into their set, but otherwise the CB irons are well worth considering.

These were the first new set of irons I had ever been given in my life (been playing hand-me-downs for 20 years). My handicap has since lowered to around 10-11. These are extremely forgiving irons. I love the look of them and highly recommend them to young golfers and those just learning the game.

I moved from TaylorMade blades to these on the recommendation of my local pro due to lack of course/practice time. My handicap has remained the same - I'm not playing as much as previously so look forward to when I can get back properly!

The TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB's are another solid iron from TaylorMade. With a slightly chunky top line they still look good behind the ball and the head shape is nice. Good performance too with a penetrating ball flight. The only downside for me was the visibility of the cavity back in the longer irons.
