Summary: Having grown up on blades,Ben Hogan Apex irons, I thought long and hard before I decided to change irons. I never did like the offset of the Ping, Callaway, Nike or TaylorMade irons. Then I saw a set of TaylorMade R7tp irons. There is virtually no offset with these clubs. Even the 3 and 4 irons, which are supposed to have some offset, have little or none that I can see. And a clean, thin top line gave me the look that I knew when comparing them to the Apex irons.
Summary: Mint from Ebay for $80 c/w Graf Tour X shaft. Best driver/shaft combination ever. No question. All the new stuff doesn't compare. My movable weight tool for other TM heads doesn't work on this one because there is a raised section in the middle of the screw that prevents it from engaging. OK with me but.....anyone know why. Would need to be a special tool.
Summary: I bought these irons 2 thru pitching wedge because I wanted to try more of a players iron. I have never hit irons better than I do these. My 2 iron is probably the straightest iron in my bag. With most sets I struggle with the 4 iron. I usually only have time to play 9 holes. With these irons in my bag, I am shooting scores in the 30's. I shot a 37 my third time out. I LOVE these irons. It is so easy to square the face.
Summary: I don't write reviews but just played with these and really like them. I play s59's, but wanted to try these. I found them on the bay with x100's and they rock. If you are a 10 or under give these a try they are forgiving and workable. I was surprised how well off center strikes carried. Can be had for cheap and are worth trying.
Conclusion: if you love hiting pure shots this is the club for you cause when you do you feeling it for the better player 10-1 hcap but if you are in there just let these irons show you why there so good
Summary: I recieved a set of Taylormade R7's with ProjectX6.5 shafts. I was worried the shafts are alittle stiff but I took the clubs out to the range yesterday and hit them alongside my MP60 with PX5.0 shafts and wow what a difference the R7 made. They are more forgiving as I tried to make bad strikes and wanted to test what others have said about still gaining decent distance on poor strikes. The I was able to hit very consistent shots and even work a draw.
Summary: I'm not one to write reviews, but the R7s are exactly what I've needed for my game. I've earnestly tried to find a better iron for the past couple of years and have yet to find one that compares the the R7. Here's my honest review: The R7 falls right in the middle of the irons spectrum: 50% forgiveness 50% workability. Although you sacrifice feedback for forgiveness and shot shape for consistency, you gain a vital aspect of your iron play: confidence.
Summary: I have searched for the perfect 3-wood for over three years and think the R7tp is one of the best. The ball flight is very consistent. I tried a bunch of shafts and the Vista Pro 80 is the best fairway shaft I've used to date in the R7tp. It's very stable and predictable. What made me switch from Sonartec was that I could not open the face of the sonartec to square/1*open. The R7tp was easy to bend.
