TaylorMade’s new Burner XD Irons follow on the heels of their successful Burner Drivers and Fairway Woods.
The Burner Irons feature a titanium face welded to a hollow, stainless steel body. The titanium face is supposed to offer several benefits. First, because it’s so thin, it offers a high coefficient of restitution (rebound effect) to deliver a higher ball speed. Second, the light face allows the redistribution of weight to encourage clubhead stability and a higher ball flight. And finally, the face is designed with TaylorMade’s Inverted Cone Technology, to increase forgiveness.
The clubs will be available both in steel and RE*AX Superfast graphite shafts. The lighter graphite shafts should promote a faster swing for more distance.
“The phenomenal distance and overall performance of the Burner family of metalwoods, especially the Burner driver, has had golfers clamoring for a Burner iron,” said Sean Toulon, TaylorMade executive vice president. “That’s because Burner metalwoods are so compelling, from both a performance and personality standpoint. We believed that if we applied that same Burner formula to an iron, we can deliver incredible performance. Great news. The wait is over. The new Burner XD iron is here.”
They’ll be available Sept. 30.
I’d love to get my hands on a set of these.
