So its been a month since the new 2010 Taylormade Japan Burner TP Iron was released and demand is still through the roof for this iron. Taylormade is having trouble keeping up with orders and they can’t produce enough sets fast enough. After receiving demos for testing I can see why. I had initially reported a few weeks ago on how good the Burner TP Irons felt on impact and at this point my opinion remains the same. In my opinion this is definitely the best cast iron Taylormade has ever made looks wise and feel wise. Style wise it is nearly on par with two other Taylormade Japan top sales models, the original r7 Forged and the new Burner Forged.
Unlike the r7 Forged and Burner Forged, the Burner TP as we all know is cast but on pure hits it sure feels forged. The soft cast 17-4 Stainless Steel produces butter like feel in a small and compact head. The thin top line and minimal offset is sure to satisfy many a low handicapper. Average golfers or medium handicappers even will aspire to play this iron especially with the Tour AD Prototype Graphite which seems to make the Burner TP feel even more smooth.
The first batch of TP Irons sold out even before release through pre orders in Japan alone. Since then, sets have been available periodically from TM with current availability being only NS Pro 950GH Regular. Every other shaft, including the 950GH Stiff, S200 and Prototype AD-75 Regular and Stiff are back ordered until sometime in February. So those who have ordered or plan on ordering we thank you for your patience. If you prefer to check with us first on stock before ordering please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
In the meantime here are better pictures as I promised!
