Do The New TaylorMade Burner Irons Live Up To Their Hype?

Taylor Made claims their new R9 burner irons are the hottest technology in golf. Media ace Jamie McWilliams puts them to the test, going head to head with his Callaway irons.

  1. Thanks for the reply. I finally decided I’m going to go with the Burner
    irons. I have an appt at the Taylor Made Performance Lab next month. I
    can’t wait.

  2. what did he do to deserve that you ignorant faggot, he does know a decent
    amount about clubs and i guarantee you don’t know shit compared to him

  3. I thought these clubs were solid, but not in my top two. He compares these
    to Callaway, but Callaway makes the worst clubs in the business. I tested
    all these clubs in this class. Mizuno is the way to go imo. I also think
    the Titleist A 1,2’s are far superior to Taylor’s comparable clubs.
    Basically from my personal standpoint I think Mizuno and Titleist are the
    best. I wouldn’t piss on a Callaway if it was on fire.

  4. Funny thing about “hitting the irons longer”… When they make the shafts
    longer and strengthen the lofts like they do and just stamp a 7 on what is
    really a 6 for other companies, it makes it HARDER to hit. Less loft =
    increased sidespin = increased chance for misses. You’ve still got to make
    a nice inside pass and hit the center of the face. Good marketing though,
    the increased distance thing.

  5. I play the Taylor Made irons about half the time. The shaft is slightly
    stiffer than my Callaway irons, so under pressure my timing is slightly
    different. Next month when I return to Florida and have full range access I
    plan on making the switch full time, to gain the distance benefits.

  6. I still love my X-14s and have no real reason to change. They are an
    excellent standard in quality irons, and are extremely forgiving. However,
    I love my Burner TP and Rescue too. Play with what works.

  7. I have hit both the Diable driver and Razr X irons at the PGA Demo day and
    Golfest in Tampa. The equipment is excellent. I have a Razr 2 hybrid in my
    bag at this time. If you hit the sweet spot of any brand name equipment,
    you will have great results. What I love about the Burner 2 irons is the
    soft feel and added distance with the irons because of the technology…I’m
    gettin’ older and a little long in the tooth! Make sure to take a look at
    the Burner 2 review. Jamie

  8. says the man that knows taylor made is watching lol nice video.. I thought
    they were for better shots on off center hits ? the 15 yard sweet spot
    scares me

  9. Great review! I’m 18 and just got fitted for these Taylormade Burner irons.
    I tested the 8 and 6 irons my swing with the 8 iron was 88 mph and went 163

  10. The ball flying 15 yards further for a sweet spot hit is not good… image
    you’re 100 from the pin and water over the back, you hit the sweet spot and
    you’re going for a swim. Well, i guess it’s only a bad thing if you are a
    high handicapper that only hits the SS a few times every round.

  11. @fade7foul yeah the lofts are stronger but the burner irons are incredibley
    easy to hit with still some workability….if you needa work tthe ball that
    much you shouldnt give a SHlT about this video. the marketing is tricky but
    still excellent clubs

  12. um i didn’t even know that they made diablo irons but the callaway x-22’s
    are really good i would say they might even be a little better than the
    burners as for the ft they have a bigger price tag thats it so if ur a
    callaway guy i would go with the x-22
