The TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons come with a nice chrome finish and are a very compact blade style head. As you would expect the sweet spot is relatively small but the trajectory was nice and low and the feel was very good.

The bolt in the back of the head is the 'precision weighting point' to add weight to the head rather than use a weight in the shaft and therefore the centre of gravity is optimal for each club. It gives the club a bit of an 'industrial' look which is a little at odds with classic blades, but some may like it.

The heads were slightly smaller than the MC irons and this is a little more noticeable in the long irons. The smaller offset mean that the TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB Irons are aimed at very low handicap players. The shorter MB irons were very good and some better players could be tempted to blend them into an MB set.

The TP MB forged irons from TaylorMade are surprisingly easy to hit given the compact nature of the head and the thin topline. They look good behind the ball and have enough weight in the head to give plenty of confidence. The sound off the face was pleasing and distance was not a problem. Slightly more difficult to manouvere than some but you could still work the ball if you wanted to. Nice clubs.
